There ain't no grey man
Can tell me what is black
I read your manifesto
That will be all I'm sending back

You say there ain't no
Black in the union jack
But your best form of defence is
To go on the attack

And I won't be persuaded
Nor be prudent to your cause
I don't believe in you
Anymore than I believe in santa claus

It's true
You don't wanna see

You say there ain't no
Black in the union jack
But your best form of defence is
To go on the attack

There ain't no grey man
Can tell me what is black
And I read his manifesto
That will be all I'm sending back

Coz I don't want your propaganda
Nor your leaflet through my door
It seems that your friend hatred
Just dunt live here anymore

What democracy's this
When people shapers bend and they twist
They mold then contort while it's they who'll distort
The truth as they're all hypocrites

What type of shit stem is that
Just a license to print lies as fact
If you control all the news channels
Then all your views
Travels faster than we can combat

But I'm in love with the notion
I'm in love with the idea of giving a fuck
Bout these things that surround me and stuff
Since when did it get passe to be having a say
Retrospective rebels aren't enough

But I'm in love with the notion
I'm in love with the notion
I'm in love
