In Everything But Name
Drewett

I’ve been in debt for most of my life
and nothing seems to change
The more I earn the less I have
and the more you own of me

I’ve been awake
for half of the night
worrying about the day
I’ve got to make ends meet
and try to justify the means

Chorus:
We have been screwed honey
can’t ya, can’t ya see that honey
We are victims in everything, everything  but name
After what we’ve been through honey
can’t ya, can’t ya see that honey
for its credit that’s imprisoned us
and put our lives in chains.

We I’ve tried, you know that I’ve tried
and I saved for a rainy day
but then banks of clouds came pouring down
and washed its value all away

I am tired, you know that I’m tired
working flat out every day
but I’m worth much more than
the money that they pay

Chorus

What happened to the money?
Where did it all go?
Don’t you think it’s kind of funny
that nobody seems to know
Why the hell are we paying for this
I really wanna know, I really wanna know,
I really wanna , I really wanna know,

I was born in better times
Now I’m living through decline
in a culture of corruption and greed
In the land of the blind
the man with no idea is king
making promises you know he’ll never keep

Chorus

Well you know, what I’m gonna say to you
what doesn’t kill us has gotta make us stronger too
Done let this debt define your life, don’t wait for a better day
‘cos a better day is, it’s gotta be, it’s gotta be, it’s gotta be
today.
It’s gotta be today, it’s gotta be today, it’s gotta be today.
