lyrics

I got smashed at the job centre
I play rock and roll cos I'm back on the dole
I got smashed at the job centre
A sad state of affairs, rock bottom I've been there
All alone in the world, destitution is real
Opportunities dried up, too inebriated to feel
I got smashed at the job centre
I was pissed they perceived so they asked me to leave

Growing up in poverty
Homeless on the rise
Foodbanks almost empty
No-ones giving, no surprise
I had dreams of academia
Student debt keeps me down
Overwhelming pessimism
Misanthropy I have found
But to hell with self-pity
And fuck you Tory scum!
I know where I have come from
I know what I've overcome
I'm not pointing fingers of where our cultures clash
But these are my roots of why I'm playing punk and thrash!

I got smashed at the job centre
I play rock and roll cos I'm back on the dole
I got smashed at the job centre
A sad state of affairs, rock bottom I've been there
All alone in the world, destitution is real
Opportunities dried up, too inebriated to feel
I got smashed at the job centre
I was pissed they perceived so they asked me to leave
