lyrics

Every other Friday,
When I go to that place,
That fucking awful place,
Don't wanna go, oh don't make me go.
Where they treat you like scum,
Got you under their thumb,
Force you into jobs that you don't want,
So they can meet, their weekly quota.

Wasn't there a time when they were there to help you?,
But now the governmental cuts have put a stop to that,
And unemployment's rising, so why not cut more jobs?
How fucked up is that?

When you go to their desk,
And you take in a deep breath,
And pray that they don't decide,
To suspend, your JSA on a whim.
You've applied for 12 jobs,
Double what they request,
But 'coz you didn't check the local press,
You failed to meet, your jobseeker's agreement.

Wasn't there a time when they were there to help you?,
But now the governmental cuts have put a stop to that,
And unemployment's rising, so why not cut more jobs?
How fucked up is that?

It's not like I'm trying,
To screw the system,
I'm actively looking for work,
So please don't treat, me with your suspicion.
I jump through the hoops,
Do what you want me to do,
And every time the goalposts move,
So you can screw, someone else over.

Wasn't there a time when they were there to help you?,
But now the governmental cuts have put a stop to that,
And unemployment's rising, so why not cut more jobs?
How fucked up...
How fucked up...
How fucked up is that?
