Britain is Broken
But when was it ever fixed? 
Britain is Broken
The young only care about Netflix

Britain is Broken
It was always better ‘back in my day’ 
Britain is Broken
Can’t get by on minimum wage.

Britain is Broken
Sixty children to a class
Britain is Broken
Community is a thing if the past.

Britain is Broken
Only the rich get a mortgage
Britain is Broken
Jobs are in shortage

Britain is Broken
But who is to blame
Britain is Broken
It’ll be fixed again one day.
