"Smokescreen" as written by and Michael Feerick....
You should say it
Everyday
The more
Is the same

It?s not for us to say
But why not?
'Cause we've got

Another petrol fire
Another dead excuse
Another crumpled spine
Another year of abuse

It's not for us to say
It's not for us to say
But why not?

We went down
To the bank
Turned round
Looked back

We went around the flag
And for what?
'Cause they've got

Another petrol fire
Another dead excuse
Another crumpled spine
Another year of abuse

We went around the flag
But for what?

    General CommentACTUAL LYRICS

    It’s the same year every day
    The mark now is the same
    It’s not for us to say
    But why not?
    ‘Cos we’ve got…

    CHORUS
    Another petrol fire
    Another dead excuse
    Another grope of the spire
    Another year of abuse

    It’s not for us to say
    It’s not for us to say
    But why not?

    We went down to the bank
    Turned round, looked back
    We went around the flag
    But for what?
    ‘Cos they’ve got…

    Another petrol fire
    Another dead excuse
    Another grope of the spire
    Another year of abuse

    We went around the flag
    We went around the flag
    But for what?
