Picture a scene and pull it apart
Who owns this field? Who drives that car?
Who put up the sign saying this is mine
Keep of the grass and keep in line

Big big house in the country side
Souvenir shops don't close til nine
Postcards do when the sun don't shine
Please be gone by closing time

Picture a scene and pull it apart
Who built this house at the very start?
Who was forced to work for some food in their hand
And some space in the corner of the master's land?

Big big house in the country side
Souvenir shops don't close til nine
Postcards do when the sun don't shine
Please be gone by closing time

This exploitation based on class
Is here in the present like it was in the past
History builds an image that we never look behind
Someone's giving orders while the rest are kept in line

Here it is your heritage
Based on class and privilege
Mr. and Mrs. Average
Are thinking "Well this is fine"
Living somewhere in between
The cardboard box and the limousine
Part of their same society
Conveniently re-defined
