an illegal strike but they're still gonna fight
and who gives a fuck what the papers say
One October Monday
and a bastard in a 500 dollar suit
is calling you a special interest group
One October Monday

lies poured in at the final hour
the whole thing's still just a matter of power
and the goddamn bill was still the same
even though the ministers face might have changed

so no matter how vilified
they're out standing on the picket line
tell me which is a more unlawful act
the abuse of power or trying to take it back

so many without a choice
counting the days till they're unemployed
but the jobs at the bottom don't have to be lost
if everyone on the ladder took a tiny loss
and I’d rather have (decent paid teachers)
rape crisis centers
than 10,000 dollor tory dinners
a system set up that only caters to some
and the broken ladder's blamed on the bottom rung
