"Step Up" as written by Roughton Reynolds, Chris Batten, Liam Rory Clewlow and Robert Rolfe....
Come

If our own lives aren't directly affected
Then it don't need to be corrected
Our fucking gift is our ignorance
Yeah, we're really serious

As they're paying for deliverance
We shut ourselves from the outcries
We blinker ourselves from the eyesores
'Cause we know we've got greatness within us

We have greatness within us
Innovative, giving, determined
It's time for the best in us to come out

And you can find imbalance
You can destroy imbalance
And you can change your values
Step up today

Yes, solid

Now let me get one thing straight, you know what?
Sometimes I do wish apples were our currency
So your hoarded millions would rot in their vaults
And that'd teach you to lay off the assault
That you're barraging on the lands of the poor

And I know we've all got enough problems of our own
But, but they're not show stoppers sitting on our throne in a home
Heated by a life unknown to the exploited
And it's so frustrating, the fucking state we're in

If our own lives aren't directly affected
Then it don't need to be corrected
Our fucking gift is our ignorance
Yeah, we're really serious

As they're paying for deliverance
We shut ourselves from the outcries
We blinker ourselves from the eyesores

And you can find imbalance
You can destroy imbalance
And you can change your values
Step up today

And you can find imbalance
You can destroy imbalance
And you can change your values
Step up today

Why is it that so many companies
Don't deserve us and can't get rid of us?
British Empire built free trade
Opportunistic, pushing

    General Commentthink the verses are:

    If our own lives aren’t directly affected, then it don’t need to be corrected!
    Our fucking gift is our ignorance,
    As they’re praying for deliverance.
    We shutter ourselves from the outcries,
    We blinker ourselves from the eyesores…
    Coz I know WE HAVE GREATNESS WITHIN US!

    General CommentThis song is awesome, I ever imagined enter shikari writing political stuff, about time a good band bashed Imperialism.

    The new album is so different, but so good!

    General CommentPretty sure that "Why is it that so many companies don't deserve us, and can't get rid of us?" is "Why is it that so many companies don't deserve us, end up ruling us?". And the final line is "Opportunistic oppression".
