1. Can’t Spare You the Time

 

Once upon a time, in a land so true

The land of milk and honey, for me and you

Now you’re just another figure in a long long line

And then they wonder why, there’s a rising rate of crime, they say…

Can’t spare you the time

I’m busy can’t you see?

Can’t spare you the time

You’re just another beggar to me

All of the good times, have been and gone

Life’s just a struggle, yeah to carry on

They got all the money, but they won’t create no jobs

They’re bringing in poverty, and giving money to the cops, they say…

Can’t spare you the time

I’m busy can’t you see?

Can’t spare you the time

You’re just another beggar to me, that’s right

Can’t spare you the time

I’m busy can’t you see?

Can’t spare you the time

You’re just another beggar to me

 

2. Pressure

 

I know that your world and my world don’t seem to mix

We’ve both got different ways of getting our kicks

My way is flying the flag and backing down to nobody

Your way is making up lies, and telling your stories

You give us so much pressure

You’re trying to bring us down

You give us so much pressure

But we ain’t gonna get out of town

Lies, lies, lies, you never seem to tell the truth

I’ve never seen so much rubbish and it’s written by you

You call yourselves the Gentlemen of the Press

Well who are your bosses? Well I can take damn good guess

You give us so much pressure

You’re trying to bring us down

You give us so much pressure

But we ain’t gonna get out of town

The time is gonna come when you have to account for your lies

Whether you tell the truth must depend on the price

You ruin somebody’s life and then it’s back to the bar

Nothing else matters but expenses and your company car

You give us so much pressure

You’re trying to bring us down

You give us so much pressure

But we ain’t gonna get out of town

 

3. Early Warning Sign

 

Our backs once more, against the wall

Survive we will

It’s all been planned, a dying land

We’ll fight and kill

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

Yes it is

Don’t start to push, we’ve had enough

You’re not our boss

Control the masses, but weren’t not that

We’re not brainwashed

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

Yes it is

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

Yes it is

Do you believe, the lies they preach

On their TV and papers?

Well if you do, then you’re no use

‘Cos they’re just trying to shape us

Well we are free, spiritually

Although our land’s imprisoned

Their so-called law, is just a whore

That warrants our derision

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

It’s an early warning sign

Yes it is

 

4. Having A Good Time

It’s Saturday evening, out to the bar

I’m crowded in with all my friends

Gonna sink a jar or two

We ain’t like commies, we’ve got smiles on our faces

They never smile, they never laugh

They’ve got the troubles of the human race on their shoulders

But we’re having a good time

Living life on the line, yeah

Having a good time

And I feel fine

Look over there it’s a lefty, sitting with his red star on

We all stand up, we have a laugh, it’s obvious his mind has gone

He says that every man’s an equal, and he says, every man’s the same

Yeah but one man’s rich, and another’s poor, well life’s a funny game, ain’t it Trotsky?

But we’re having a good time

Living life on the line, yeah

Having a good time

And I feel fine

But we’re having a good time

Living life on the line, yeah

Having a good time

And I feel fine

We’re being followed ’round by policemen, they must have nothing better to do

And out there there’s muggers robbing the old, but they’d rather follow me and you

They don’t wanna damage relations between our country and its unwanted guests

They’re just looking after minorities, and they don’t give a toss for the rest, no they don’t, but…

But we’re having a good time

Living life on the line, yeah

Having a good time

And I feel fine

 

5. Don’t Try it

 

Sweet child, bad city, once upon a time

Prostitution, poverty, and a never-ending rate of crime

Corrupt police, in it for the money, never a thought of the truth

We were warned a long time ago but it didn’t seem to do much use

Don’t try it ‘cos I now what you’re doing

Don’t try it ‘cos I know your game

Don’t try it, all your two-faced lying

Don’t try it, ‘cos we know your name

Evil men in an office, pretty in their ties and shirts

All you touch turns to corruption, King Midas’ touch in reverse

It’s what you always said that you would be doing, while we slumbered on

Anyone who stood in your book of evil, would fight before the chance has gone

Don’t try it ‘cos I now what you’re doing

Don’t try it ‘cos I know your game

Don’t try it, all your two-faced lying

Don’t try it, ‘cos we know your name

Don’t try it ‘cos I now what you’re doing

Don’t try it ‘cos I know your game

Don’t try it, all your two-faced lying

Don’t try it, ‘cos we know your name

Don’t try it ‘cos I now what you’re doing

Don’t try it ‘cos I know your game

Don’t try it, all your two-faced lying

Don’t try it, ‘cos we know your name

 

6. Justice for the Cottbus Six

 

And the people call for justice, justice

And none of your dirty little tricks

Yeah the people shout for justice, justice

And that means freedom for the Cottbus Six

Within four evil walls, accused of a crime

But all they’ve done is be in the wrong place at the wrong time

Doing all that we can do to free the innocent

But our hands are bound by the lying Press, and the corrupt governments

And the people call for justice, justice

And none of your dirty little tricks

Yeah the people shout for justice, justice

And that means freedom for the Cottbus Six

Six young lives are wasting, scapegoats for the powers that be

Sacrificed to the One-World men and their immigration policy

Tell you now when it’s your plan to try and bring us down

Your corrupt plans will tumble, ‘cos we’ll always be around

And the people call for justice, justice

And none of your dirty little tricks

Yeah the people shout for justice, justice

And that means freedom for the Cottbus Six

Arrested by the remnants, of a communist regime

Corruption in high places, is still around it seems

And six young men are rotting, in a dungeon that’s still Red

One day the truth will break on through, and the chains will all be shed

And the people call for justice, justice

And none of your dirty little tricks

Yeah the people shout for justice, justice

And that means freedom for the Cottbus Six

And the people call for justice, justice

And none of your dirty little tricks

Yeah the people shout for justice, justice

And that means freedom for the Cottbus Six
