Skyclad – The Parliament Of Fools lyrics

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in 'The parliament of fools'

The discontented winter howled, when I first came up to vote
They swept in on a sea of change, but I'm glad I missed their boat
As communities were taxed and torn, utilities got floated
And for eighteen years the 'true blue' cause
Prevailed and was promoted
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?

Now I took me off to college for to learn philosophy
Studied Paine and Machiavellian spin and sophistry
But coming from a county that was red in tooth and claw
And a one-horse-race some lobby-fodder-donkey
Was brought forth
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in 'The parliament of fools'

Armed with this liberal knowledge, I set off for London town
To see 'the seat of wisdom' and hear justice handed down
Not 'a semblance of normality', an assembly of insanity
I'll not become a member of of this parliament most foul
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
Yes, all the seats are taken and our confidence is shaken
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
