Drifting flotsam
Ostracized by
Foolish greed
And the lies it buys
Tried the patience
Of neighbouring nations
The blind follows
The blind ambition

Half were mis-sold their voice
Half were shouted down
We were all sold out
(Mayday, Mayday)

Dumped like jetsam
Redundant ballast
These gullible shills
Filled with small minded malice
Purpose served
Served up as oblations
To media moguls
And ghost corporations

Half found Stockholm syndrome
Half found out too late
We were all taken

So Mayday, Mayday
We're lost at sea
We'll prove our independence
By dying alone

L. Switzer
