Set it off

Check it check it wreck it wreck it when we set it off
Speaker speaker lega lega lies like Peter Tosh
Check it check it wreck it wreck it when we set it off
Speaker speaker lega lega lies like Peter Tosh x2

You honourable members can kiss my arse
Your pass’n the buck not bills milk’n like calves
Half are rotten don’t upset the apple cart
Rock the boat from top to toe need to rattle hard
These cages, and pollies always agree
When it comes to an increase of their own wages
But we have to strike and we have to fight
Their hands high chant I for all those in favour
The bravest light wavers save us indeed
And changes behaviours like patients with weed
Now scrap that, yeh of course they’re all honest
Can’t be held to account ‘coz it wasn’t a core promise?
They ignore the comments let the heat die down
The weak lie around singing blues like Daisy Thomas
Profit over peace is how they measure success
Political wings span to feather their nest

Check it check it wreck it wreck it when we set it off
Speaker speaker lega lega lies like Peter Tosh
Check it check it wreck it wreck it when we set it off
Speaker speaker lega lega lies like Peter Tosh x2

Set it off we ‘bout to let it go
‘bout to blow up in the spot like shots at Charlie Hebdo
Cortext steady scream’n hell no
We taken every crook and pollie to task shoot’em all and let the red flow
Fuck a corporate leach and fuck a Saudi Sheik
And clear fell the fuck’n Rothschild family tree
And do ya self a favour research the TPP
And learn how they plan to sell your children into slavery
They want to let the corporation sue nations
Over health regulations stopp’n them from make’n new papers
They sett’n up the new slave ship
And Rupert got his dick up in the pie so you’ll never hear the news say it
So who gonna take the streets when they loot’n us?
And who gonna keep the fuck’n peace while the cops shoot at us?
But me a Graphic speak the truth to the world
And if you aint about to set it we gonna do it ourselves



Check it check it wreck it wreck it when we set it off
Speaker speaker lega lega lies like Peter Tosh
Check it check it wreck it wreck it when we set it off
Speaker speaker lega lega lies like Peter Tosh x2
