about

Hard-working families, aka the deserving poor or working poor. As opposed to the undeserving poor who, paradoxically, deserve to be poor. Dividing the poor on moral grounds makes them easier to control: the deserving are persuaded to help persecute the undeserving. They fight over crumbs and work themselves into a stupor while the rich (deserving and undeserving merrily joined in gluttony) sit back and wolf the cakes.

lyrics

I don’t work one gig, it’s four or five
Zero hours keep the show alive
No time for thinking, no time to play
Long-term relationships get in the way
Dodos inside me are starting to weep
It’s been days since I got some sleep
Drinking Red Bull in a Starbucks cup
If I fall down I won’t get up
I won’t get up

I don’t eat solids, I gave that up
I get my fuel from my Starbucks cup
Dodos inside me, I’m ready to weep
I keep repeating cos I get no sleep
People are talking, they sound like birds
I feel their noise but I hear no words
I sit in car parks inside a van
And people tell me I’m a, a lucky man
O lucky man

And people tell me lucky man

I don’t work one gig, it’s four or five
Zero hours keep the show alive
No time for thinking, no time to play
Long-term relationships get in the way
People are talking, they sound like birds
I feel their noises but I hear no words
I sit in car parks inside a van

And people tell me lucky man
lucky man
