"Citizen" as written by and Becky Bond David John Bateman....
Words that taunt, a face that sneers
Is it envy or is it fear?
What gives you the right to criticise?
When you lead such useless lives

Upright citizen

The law is always on your side
You're never stuck for a place to hide
As time goes by your vision goes
You can't see past the end of your nose

Corrupting your children, telling lies
Complacent cowards, wasting your lives
You've got freedom of speech and nothing to say
Put your trust in politicians and believe you're safe

Say you're respectable, put on your disguise
When faced with the truth you close your eyes
There are millions of you and more will follow
Make sure we never have a better tomorrow
