Skrewdriver – Power From Profit lyrics

It's time to face the music, we've let our country down
Upon the face of our nation, there seems to be a frown
Once we were all proud men of this green and pleasant land,
But we've lost a lot of tears over you

Very soon our time will come, our nation's doom will toll
They've bought up all our industries, and they've tried to buy our souls
And then our nation's working men, will be the rich man's slaves
Yes, we've lost a lot of tears over you

It's power from profit, they're buying our souls
It's power from proit, puts you on the dole
It's power from profit, a good job's hard to find
It's power from profit, they'll soon own our minds

I think it's time our people stood together all as one
And took back all our nation's wealth when the profiteers have gone
Our working men would be fairly paid, for all their sweat and toil
Yes, we've lost a lot of tears over you

(Repeat Chorus)

It's power from profit, the capitalist's a theif
If he stands against us, he better stay out of our reach
We will fight against them with a hammer and a gun
And when our people start to rise, the traitor's time will come

(Repeat Chorus)

And when our time has finally come, and we've gained our brave new world
The people stand and hail the dawn, the banners are unfurled
We've got to be on guard to see that they don't come again
Because we've lost a lot of tears over you

(Repeat Chorus) x2
