Track Name: Meltdown
1.
We’re heading for a meltdown
It’s coming right at ya
We’re heading for a meltdown
It’s coming right at ya
So you want posterity
What you got’s austerity
What you got is
"Terms & conditions apply"

Remember the time
When the streets were paved with gold
When they told you “nothing’s gonna touch you
In these golden years”
Whop-whop, whop!
Whop-whop, whop!
What ya gonna do what ya gonna do
What ya gonna do what ya gonna do – hey!

2.
But we won the war
And we got the Queen
God save the Queen!
(A fascist regime)
Made you a moron, potential H-bomb
Got the options and you got the choice
But you ain’t got the equity, you ain’t got the voice
It’s a meltdown!

Hey, listen to The Moors
The Moors will help you
Here come The Moors
The Moors will help you
’Cause we’re going down fast
And we’re going down slow
Going down fast going down slow
Going down fast going down slow – here we go!
