My very sarcastic track about what a bunch of idiots we are for voting to leave the EU. We probably should be pulling together, but I'm too young to vote as well, so I have every right to be annoyed and need to get this annoyance off my chest.

However, if you did vote leave...

I will forgive you if you download this track, any others as well (give me your email address in the process, should be automatic. So I can start an email newsletter!) and go check out my social media (preferably like/ follow etc):

I'm pretty new to this so need all the help I can get. Sharing my music is the best thing you can do, it helps a lot.

A huge thank you to you for reading this and an even bigger one if you downloaded the track!

lyrics

We're better off alone, why can't you clearly see that?
If I have no friends at least I don't need to share.
I am not arrogant, I simply no that I'm better than you.
And if I ever have trouble I'll...
Well I won't run into trouble, I'm too good for that!

As a man on my own, my flag is enough to win the fight,
Your prejudice and racism, I take them as facts.
You know I've done my research, I only listen to the politician who backtracks,
We all know that liberty, worker's rights and unity are for the weak,
I think that next I'll take my empire back.
I don't care about anyone, not even the posterity.
You can call me inhuman, but all I want is to take my country a century back.

What do you mean the next generation? It's my decision!
I can make them suffer If I want! So I will.
And those unelected bureaucrats, we've got our own, but I don't complain about that.
Some legal immigrants arrive, gifting us diversity,
but I'll take that as them stealing my culture!

As a man on my own, my flag is enough to win the fight,
Your prejudice and racism, I take them as facts.
You know I've done my research, I only listen to the politician who backtracks,
We all know that liberty, worker's rights and unity are for the weak,
I think that next I'll take my empire back.
I don't care about anyone, not even the posterity.
You can call me inhuman, but all I want is to take my country a century back.

They told me I'd be richer, I still believe them as I watch my currency crash.
Stability is not for me, I'd rather throw my family into a dark pit.
Anyone would think I'm blind, I ignored the warning signs.
Never mind the snakes I saw, the fortune teller told me it was gold.
He drank beer so I thought he was a pretty nice, down to earth guy.

Never mind the endless good things they've done and given us.
I'm above the law, I'm refusing to pay to travel on this bus.
Whilst I am at it, I might as well beat the other passengers.
Oh no, here comes trouble, I'd better find someone else to blame so I can cover up my arse!

As a man on my own, my flag is enough to win the fight,
Your prejudice and racism, I take them as facts.
You know I've done my research, I only listen to the politician who backtracks,
We all know that liberty, worker's rights and unity are for the weak,
I think that next I'll take my empire back.
I don't care about anyone, not even the posterity.
You can call me inhuman, call me inhuman, you can call me inhuman, but all I want is to take my country a century back.
