SIMPLE DIFFERENCE


some people are confined caught living in a time warp minds warped
they find their minds taught no time for kind thought
be colour blind ought to swear solemn promises
of care tolerance honesty sharing and from this is severe change
we’re here to rearrange so people see as special
what they normally perceive as weird and strange
fear and blame in fear they aim
Asylum-seeking missiles at the ones with clearer claim
than Michael Howard’s gran would have today
if the old dear were here again
they jeer and shame on all the Tories
racist blokes with racist jokes and tasteless racist stories
of colonies and empire and former racist glories
the racist vote they savour the racist vote they favour
they said if you want a n word for a neighbour- vote labour

simple difference in complexion of faces
the basis for racist display and it's tasteless
difference in complexion of faces
the basis for racist display there's no way i'll embrace this

I grin and in anticipation wait the fall of this nation state
I’ll tell you what makes this nation grate my nerves
reserves of ancient hate sly words and passing cracks
at Sassenachs the so called underclass
and black and asian immigration rates
this nation hates otherness
the gist of this no sisterness no brotherness
in fact they verbally attack it twist to miss another dis
they smack it whack it and their fists I kiss to smother this
aggression
it’s a limitation trait mate
straightjacket for the conscious mind
at once just grinds your soul
so when you subsequently soul search
seems you’ll only find a hole
I'm speaking solely of the hole
where once your holy soul was whole
but now you lack it

simple difference in complexion of faces
the basis for racist display and it's tasteless
difference in complexion of faces
the basis for racist display there's no way i'll embrace this
