6. Mr. Speaker

Mr. Speaker, let me see our peerless chief behind the door
Mr. Speaker, let me ask him what the rest of us are for
Just his keepers and his sycophants
No one else invited to the dance

We got eyes that we might see
A voice that we might act
We built a house

Mr. Speaker, give us more than the Ministry of Wealth
Mr. Speaker, we’re fading from the politics of stealth
Our CEO he got a business plan
Fossil fuel and muzzled man

We built a house
And we want it back

Mr. Speaker, Daddy drove the big bus right on through
Mr. Speaker, packed it full and kept it all just out of view
In the side door, out the back before we knew
Big change coming, we need a little room to move

We built a house
Gonna take it back

Said to the people on the grass
Let me be your fuel, then he lit the match
