It's All Done By Mirrors
There's a woman on the corner and she's carrying a banner
Saying death to the oppressor and the men who overran her
And at least she's getting things done

There's a factory, there's a union and the men are having doubts
About working for a pittance so they're going to do a walk out
At least they're getting things done

You sit there with a grin on your face
Yeah, you've always been a moderate and you know your place
Slowly going nowhere in this nowhere race
And if you get into power nothing, nothing's going to change

There's some schoolboys on the corner from the school just down the road
Teacher was going to have to punish them so they decided not to go
And at least they're getting things done

And they've got a sort of feeling there's a better sort of scene
So they put their heads together and they start a magazine
And at least they're getting things done

And you sit there with your pint of real ale
If you'd been so oppressed you know you'd turn quite pale
But "I'm alright" is what you always wail
And if you get into power nothing, nothing's going to change

There's a lot of them been thinking and their heads are getting prouder
There's a lot of them been thinking and their voices getting louder
And at least they're getting things done

They're growing in their numbers and they will not go away
And They're growing in their numbers and waiting for the day
And at least they're getting things done

But you turn round and say "That's not quite fair..."
"You know that Anti-Nazi rally, man, I was there"
But when the music stopped that's when you ceased to care
And if you get into power nothing, nothing's going to change

And you still sit there with your pint of beer
you don't really like radicals - you think that they're weird
But you'd still do anything to get out of here
And if you get into power nothing, nothing's going to change
