New England

 Make a wish take a chance flip a coin
The old guard will crumble in time
Take a leap of faith and you’ll find
All flesh and blood is divine
Take my hand son you’ll find me
Standing out by the wall
Where all old stories remind me
The bigger you are the harder you fall
And the lion roars  

God save new England
From her money whores
God save new England
They’ve shown you the door

London are you falling
London are you free
For all that you stole
Should we have sympathy
From the banks of the Mersey
The Thames and the Dee
You stole what you wanted
Your legacy is colony
Take the time and you’ll find me
Down by the Tyburn Tree
Here’s where your people inspired us
To rise so that all might be free
Still your lion roars

Will god save new England
From her money whores
Will god save new England
Because the English don’t care
Will god save new England
There’s blood on the shore
God save new England
Because the English don’t care anymore  

Not content to cage your people in tower blocks
For greed the cultures you spoiled
It’s your government royal church shit shaped paradox
And their screams they ring out for miles
So I’m thinking I must just lie here
To forget what it was that I saw
But your blood stained flag knows no fear here
As you defend all actions with cause
And we all know the score

Can god save new England
Yeah no one wants more
Will god save new England
It seems the English don’t care
God save new England
And the queen you adore
Can god save new England
It seems the English don’t care anymore  

Rule Britannia
Britannia rules the waves
Dear old England
Never never never shall be slaves
Rule Britannia
Britannia rules the waves
Dear old England
Wash over your watery graves
