Stand Your Ground - Lyrics: Billy Attwell©2009

Men in grey suits
Politicians
They do nothing for me
Tucked away in their country houses
They don’t see what I have to see

Our so called advanced society
On the border of poverty
People struggling to survive
A nation on it’s knees
They’ve got to be told
What I want ‘em to be
Remind them
That they’re workin’ for me

(Chorus 1)
It’s time to stand your ground
Time to walk tall
You won’t get no sense from those guys
It’s like bangin’ your head ‘gainst a wall
Bangin’ your head ‘gainst a wall
Bangin’ your head ‘gainst a wall
(You won’t get any sense from those guys
But it’s time to walk tall)

They’ve lost sight of what’s important to me
I’m just a way to raise money that’s all they see
That’s all they see

(Chorus 2)
It’s time to stand your ground
Time to walk tall
Won’t get no sense from those guys
It’s like bangin’ your head ‘gainst a wall
Bangin’ your head ‘gainst a wall
Bangin’ your head ‘gainst a wall

We used to have importance
On the world stage
Third World status
Is heading our way
The economic bubble burst
It’s had it’s day, it’s had it’s day, it’s had it’s day,

They’ve downsized the world
But globalised my life
We’re looking to the East they say
I’d better get a Chinese wife! I’d better get a Chinese wife!

(Repeat Chorus 1)
