Skrewdriver - Power From Profit lyrics

It's time to face the music, we've let our country down

Upon the face of our nation, there seems to be a frown

Once we were all proud men of this green and pleasant land,

But we've lost a lot of tears over you

Very soon our time will come, our nation's doom will toll

They've bought up all our industries, and they've tried to buy our souls

And then our nation's working men, will be the rich man's slaves

Yes, we've lost a lot of tears over you


It's power from profit, they're buying our souls

It's power from proit, puts you on the dole

It's power from profit, a good job's hard to find

It's power from profit, they'll soon own our minds

I think it's time our people stood together all as one

And took back all our nation's wealth when the profiteers have gone

Our working men would be fairly paid, for all their sweat and toil

Yes, we've lost a lot of tears over you

(Repeat Chorus)

It's power from profit, the capitalist's a theif

If he stands against us, he better stay out of our reach

We will fight against them with a hammer and a gun

And when our people start to rise, the traitor's time will come

(Repeat Chorus)

And when our time has finally come, and we've gained our brave new world

The people stand and hail the dawn, the banners are unfurled

We've got to be on guard to see that they don't come again

Because we've lost alot of tears over you

(Repeat Chorus) x2
