    Lyrics

    Cruel Britannia ruled the waves
    Empire oiled by toiling slaves
    White flag stained, St. George cross red
    And blues sung for the countless dead

    God save brave Johnny Company
    Stiff-upper-lipped he sipped his tea
    A top a mound of babes he'd killed
    To keep our nations coffers filled

    Think back and lie of England
    Conceal the evil we have done
    Think back and lie of England
    Fake alibis for Albion

    Meanwhile back on British loam
    Irish driven from their homes
    Persecuted Welsh and Scot
    And robbed them all of all they'd got

    Bound unto the plough and yoke
    They broke the backs of honest folk
    Built a gentlemen's Jerusalem
    I'm ashamed I share my race with them!

    Think back and lie of England
    Conceal the evil we have done
    Think back and lie of England
    Fake alibis for Albion

    So will our future history tell
    How we've used this country well?
    If you ask me, well I think not
    Unless we watch these bigots rot

    In poverty the masses drown
    So raise a Dome in Greenwich town?
    The Cenotaph is strewn with flowers
    Yet arms-deals struck with fascist powers!

    Think back and lie of England
    Conceal the evil we have done
    Think back and lie of England
    Fake alibis for Albion

    Think back and lie of England
    Conceal the evil we have done
    Think back and lie of England
    Fake alibis for Albion
