Lucy Ward - Bigger Than That

Lyrics

I'm singing just for you jack, a song of lament/words of shock and sorry from this side of the fence/I know you were protecting the pile that you have/ but i thought we were fighting for something bigger than that/I thought we were fighting for something bigger than me/for your country has been swallowed by capitalist greed/ where the needs of the many mean nothing to the few/I thought we were fighting for something bigger than you

It's not alright jack, the die that you've cast/and now we must fight back regardless of class/for we can't stand aside while you cut down the net that cradles good people tile they rise up again/education and welfare, our NHS/ do you really believe that to break them is best/ for when profit and not people is priority/ wave goodbye to your freedoms and equality

You say that we are stupid, you tell us we're naive/ you belittle our compassion to justify your greed/ the me me me generation will only live so long/ then the children of our future will have to live with what we've done/ so don't try to tell me that the system 'just works'/ while our brothers and sisters lie face down in the dirt / You might be prepared to stand upon their backs/ but I'm fighting for something much bigger than that/ Jack we are fighting for something much bigger than that
