In times of Brexit discussions, new elections and a really instable situation in the UK (and Europe) their punkbands are also raising their voices (as punkbands should always do).

Forty eight to fifty two.
Does the caricature ring true?
Four lions on a stage but there’s an elephant in the room.
A tantalising web of lies.
If only we could have held back the tide.
(There’s more that unites us)
Oh, how we tried.
A dry mouth mumbles the land we’re from.
We can’t recognise our own!
(Here in this room, with all of you. Right fucking here, right fucking now)
This is our home.
