Track Name: Here's to the State of Tory Britain
Here's to the state of Tory Britain
Where the privileged can jump the queue, the poor come last in line
But the tattle of the tabloids tells us everything's just fine
And the whisperings of Westminster conceal a thousand crimes
Whole the roaring of the masses gets ignored time after time

Here's to the land, you've torn out the heart of,
All you Tories find yourself another country to be part of.

Here's to the church of Tory Britain
Where the vicar's daughter sells us out with righteous self-belief
And if you're not a Christian, that's a real kick in the teeth
With a pious voice, she'll strip our assets like the lowest thief
But a solemn devout countenance can't mask the rot beneath

Here's to the land, you've torn out the heart of,
All you Tories find yourself another country to be part of.

Here's to the borders of Tory Britain
Where victims seeking refuge are now something to abhor
And columnists compare them all to roaches by the score
And we'll look the other way as bodies wash up on the shore
'cos no-one ever told us there's a consequence to war

Here's to the land, you've torn out the heart of,
All you Tories find yourself another country to be part of.

Here's to the health of Tory Britain
When they're selling off the service and the profit tastes so sweet
While the nurses are all lining up at food banks just to eat
There'll be loads of empty beds when we're all dying in the street
It's the perfect panacea for the governing elite.

Oh here's to the land, you've torn out the heart of,
All you Tories find yourself another country to be part of.
Yes here's to the land, you've torn out the heart of,
All you Tories find yourself another country to be part of.
