They Still Haven’t Found What I’m Eligible For (to the tune of U2′ I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For)

I have climbed the highest staircase
I have jumped through the hoops
only to feed myself
only to feed myself
I’ve had to stand, had to crawl
I have filled in all the forms
all the forms
only to feed myself

But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for
But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for

I have kissed workplace arses
felt the loathing in the furtive glances
it burned like ire
with me deep in the mire
I’ve not heard any tongues of angels
but I have held my hand out to devils
it was cold in the night
I was kicked like a dog

But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for
But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for

I don’t believe the day will come
when right-wing bastards would bleed into one
bleed into one
But yes I’m still dreaming
You bought your bonds
Your private planes
You profited handsomely
and caused my shame
oh my shame
You know I can prove it

But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for
But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for

But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for
But they still haven’t found
what I’m eligible for

Tories Of Millbank

(To the tune of U2’s Angel Of Harlem)

It was a cold yet bright November day
12 noon start, Horseguards Parade
Banners reading “Fuck the Fees”
Education brought to its knees
by the Tories

Parliament Sq and a big red bus
today this city belongs to us
not the Tories

Anger, this rage won’t let me go
such bile…for the Tories of Millbank

Tate Britain on our route
but first we pass the faceless suits
we got anarchists and a red/black flag
Sally says we have to resist the Tories

Aaron Porter got shallow eyes
we see the truth behind his lies
Tory

Anger, this rage won’t let me go
such bile…for the Tories of Millbank
Tories of Millbank

They’ll steal your education, and then your soul
Yeah yeah, yeah yeah
yeah yeah, right now

Blue lights on the avenue
riot police are coming through
fire extinguisher, flooded stair
how many really got in there
kettled you, lost liberty
up on a charge with 43
red flares exploding in the street
strike fear into the blue elite
Tory in a Lib-Dem tie
Betrayal, pack of lies
You never looked like an angel
Nick Clegg, another Tory of Millbank

Tories, Tories of Millbank

Song Of The Day ~ U2 – Angel Of Harlem

(To the tune of U2’s Where The Streets Have No Name)

I’m too skint to run, too old to hide
I have to take out the furniture
that I have inside
I want to reach out
for just a few quid more
to stay where the streets have no poor

I want to feel Southern light on my face
I’ve seen the cockneys disappear
without a trace
I need to call Shelter
if anyone’s there any more
where the streets have no poor

where the streets have no poor
where the streets have no poor

they still claim there’s
affordable housing
outside the M25 ring
and when I go there
you can’t afford not to come too
it’s all we can do

the city’s affluent
but our car’s turned to rust
we’re evicted and cleared by the Tories
who betrayed our trust
I’ll show you a place
high on the Yorkshire moor
where the streets might still have some poor

where the streets have no poor
where the streets have no poor

they’re still building
their mansions in fields
as the welfare state yields
and when we go there
you’ll just have to come too
it’s all we can do

our dreams turned to rust
the writing is now on the wall
and they just don’t care at all
oh I see our fate
see our bank balance bust
the writing is now on the wall
they just don’t care at all
oh when I go there
you just have to come too
it’s all we can do
