SPINNING WHEELS

One day some rats made a puppet,
a puppet on a string,
and the puppet it made a monster,
to ease control of everything.
So stay in your box,
'cause the monster is running.
Stay in your box,
'cause the monster might come.
Stay in your box,
'cause the monster is building,
a box for your daughter and a box for your son.

You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're standing still,
as your wheel is spinning.
You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're laughing still,
'cause your wheel is still spinning.

Now the monster made a puppet,
a puppet to pay the rat,
and the rats they made a monster,
to pay the puppet back.
So stay at your wheel,
'though the monster is driving.
Stay at your wheel,
'cause there is work to be done.
Stay at the wheel,
keep your nose to the grindstone,
a wheel for your daughter and a wheel for your son.

You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're standing still,
as your wheel is spinning.
You are racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're laughing still,
'cause your wheel is still spinning.

Corrupt political will
hangs like a noose round this neck of the woods,
Bankrupt and cynical shills
claim that it's all for the common good.
As they fill our pockets up with debt,
and we hang our heads under further threats,
unjust political will
tightens the noose round this neck of the woods.

You're racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're standing still,
as your wheel is spinning.
You are racing rats,
and they're winning,
and they're laughing still,
'cause your wheel is still spinning.

And they don't hear a voice when you demonstrate,
'cause their money don't talk, it dictates...
