First class accountant hiding all the quids

Houses global, swimming pools

Acid continues, but in people`s faces

Once enjoyed in warehouses and other abandoned places

Working hard, put a little aside

Ordered a number 42, with either boiled, special or maybe even fried

Revolve it

 

Fantastic plastic buying me the glamour,

Sorry kids, sorry wife, home under the hammer

Street foods served up, from all around the world

Let the music begin as the new flag is unfurled

WE don`t use the `n` word, but I pull the trigger

Blowing you a short fused riddle which you will surely figure

Lick my boots and lick my stamps,

Get those `unwanted` in squalid, shit hole camps

Dissolve it,

Work with it

Revolve it

Working like his dad, remembering all his roots

His `mates` moved on to Uni and walk about in suits

 

Solve it

Dissolve it,

Work with it

Revolve it

 

A politician`s salary

But the masses want him in rogues’ gallery

Think about the legality

Sailed the sea

Hello there, …..is there a home for me?

Continued hysteria, Brexit moans

Literacy levels low, education via phones

Sisters six, different mother

Happy families, connecting with each other

 

Solve it

Dissolve it,

Work with it

Hidden, blank faces, without even a name

Population playing a pre-ordained, laughable losers’ game

Dissolve it,

Work with it

Revolve it

From Roman harbours

 

Solve it

Dissolve it,

Work with it

Revolve it

Meets an educated vulture

Petrol station overpriced, wilted flowers

When an uncaring world extracts your very last breath

Wonderful people,

Shall we gather in the opium dens or the building with the steeple?

 

Solve it

Dissolve it,

Work with it

Revolve it
