Music with a conscience

Further to my post about Spy v Spy appearing locally, I did a little Google research and found this clip of my favourite Spy song. Such a shame, nothing much has changed…..

Here’s the lyrics:

Take me back
Take me back
Before the modern times
I.D. cards and credit cards
Plastic takes the paper’s place
Feel the change
Feel the change
A number can become your name
What’s your rating, is it triple A
Are we told to do and told to say?

Half a world with plastic cards
The other half are left to starve
Can you hear the money talk
It always says goodbye

Languages, percentages
Recognise your true belief
Will the banker become the beast
Do the fed, become the feast
In the black, in the red
Do we earn our daily bread
Should we save or should we spend
Does this rule our hearts
And our heads

Half a world with plastic cards
The other half are left to starve
Can you hear the money talk
It always says goodbye
Talking sense or talking dollars
People aren’t currency

Half a world with credit cards
The other half left to starve
