Track Name: The Road To Brextinction
THE ROAD TO BREXTINCTION

Brexit truly wrecks my heart
It's an incredible act of self-harm
Now the country's torn apart
How could we let all this madness start ?
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Yes it does

I am a European
People like me are legion
We're on the road to brextinction now
So let's turn round

Some people wonder why the fuss ?
What has the EU ever done for us ?
How about jobs, peace and ERASMUS ?
That beats a lie on the side of a bus
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Yes it does

I am a European
People like me are legion
We're on the road to brextinction now
So let's turn round

Brexit is like a bad tattoo
Expensive, painful and hard to reverse too
Millions of people in limboland soon
Once their freedom of movement's been removed
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Yes it does

I am a European
People like me are legion
We're on the road to brextinction now
So let's turn round
Yeah !

Now's the time for a change of heart
Cancelling Brexit would be a good start
Write it all off as a big brain fart
Be in the EU and play a full part
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Brexit truly wrecks my heart
Yes it does

I am a European
People like me are legion
I am a European
People like me are legion
We're on the road to brextinction now
So let's turn round
Yeah
Track Name: Pound Shop Enoch Powell
POUND SHOP ENOCH POWELL

Enoch saw rivers of blood (rivers of blood)
And he talked rivers of pish (rivers of pish)
Some see rivers of mud (rivers of mud)
Where Europe nicked our fish (nicked our fish)
No more Jean-Claude Juncker
No more Guy Verhofstadt
Lock down our castle bunker
And pull up the drawbridge ? Fuck that !

I hear that Brexiteer most foul
And I start to howl
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him

If your life is crap (your life is crap)
And you don't have a job (don't have a job)
Just open up your trap (open up your trap)
And blame that EU mob (that EU mob)
'Cause it can't be the Tories
Who tore the country apart
You believe theur fake stories
In your true blue heart

I hear that Brexiteer most foul
And I start to howl
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him

Come on England (come on England)
You got your country back (your country back)
Wave your flags from Poundland (flags from Poundland)
Hail the empire you back (the empire you lack)
Britain's not great at all
In fact it's a joke
Now it's bound to fall
Because the peed-on masses spoke

I hear that Brexiteer most foul
And I start to howl
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him
That's right yeah !

The will of the people (the will of the people)
A term I now despise (I now despise)
Just means millions of sheeple (millions of sheeple)
Fell for the leaver lies (the leaver lies)
Brexit really means bullshit
And one day we'll realise
Brexiteers dropped us in it
With help from their tabloid allies

I hear that Brexiteer most foul
And I start to howl
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him

A bargain basement tax haven (basement tax haven)
Is Britain's true destiny (true destiny)
Forget that nonsense 'bout savin' (nonsense 'bout savin')
Cash or sovereignty (sovereignty)
Enough talk of global trade deals
Unicorns or money trees
We really need to get real
Europe is where we should be

I hear that Brexiteer most foul
And I start to howl
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him

I am no liberal snowflake (no liberal snowflake)
Or just some bleedin' heart (some bleedin' heart)
People's futures are at stake (futures at stake)
No-one should pick them apart (pick them apart)
Backroom deals are dangerous
In Brussels or Downing Street
But Europe is better for us
That unity is hard to beat

I hear that Brexiteer most foul
And I start to howl
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him

I hear that Brexiteer most foul
And I start to howl
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him

He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
He's a pound shop Enoch Powell
And we've got to watch him
Track Name: Watching From Afar
WATCHING FROM AFAR

You can all leave I will remain
Far from the ignorant parade
Of bigoted views that some choose
As their refrain
If you think you're better off
Cutting yourselves off
From openness and hope
Then I think you're wrong
Opportunists have won again
Vying for power at number ten
Preying on fears and drinking beers
With their old school friends

Watching from afar
I see too many people are
Taken in by lies and media brainwashing
There has to be a way to finally break the chains
Of fear, hate and nostalgia
All self-defeating

As a form of protest
Closing your mind is not the best
Blaming Johnny Foreigner
Is irrational
Patriotism is a curse
Nationalism's even worse
Brainwashed minds combine them
With xenophobia
If you're scared or short on hope
Don't give ex-traders the rope
To hang you out to dry
With lies and false hope

Watching from afar
I see too many people are
Taken in by lies and media brainwashing
There has to be a way to finally break the chains
Of fear, hate and nostalgia
All self-defeating

If it wasn't sad I'd laugh
Long and hard at how daft
And retrograde what some people say
And think is
That's democracy I'm afraid
Where voters get to have their say
Any Tom, Dick or Harriet
Can make their voices heard
But this isn't a fait accompli
So question everything you read
Or you'll end up bending the knee
To idiocracy

Watching from afar
I see too many people are
Taken in by lies and media brainwashing
There has to be a way to finally break the chains
Of fear, hate and nostalgia
All self-defeating

Watching from afar
I see too many people are
Taken in by lies and media brainwashing
There has to be a way to finally break the chains
Of fear, hate and nostalgia
All self-defeating

You can all leave I will remain
