​You Can't Have It

This song is by Jackson United and appears on the album Harmony And Dissidence (2008).

The warning signs were all there
The tingle in our end hair
The loudest voice was your own
The oil fields were burning
The wheels of commerce turning
The king sat smiling on his throne

But you're left out on your own
Told to love the hate you're thrown
We're throwing out the tyrants

Is this the life that you want?
Is this the world that you want?
Is this the love that you take for granted?
Is this the life that you take?
The world you want but you can't
You can't have it
Is this the life that you want?
Is this the world that you want?
Is this the love that you take for granted?
Is this the life that you take?
The world you want but you can't
You can't have it

Marginalised and suppressed
"How could you critisise us?"
Devoted to a higher cause
Not made of flag waving
Troop support and blind faith
We'll lead the charge the coup d'etat

But you're left out on your own
Told to love the hate you're thrown
We're throwing out the tyrants

Is this the life that you want?
Is this the world that you want?
Is this the love that you take for granted?
Is this the life that you take?
The world you want but you can't
You can't have it
Is this the life that you want?
Is this the world that you want?
Is this the love that you take for granted?
Is this the life that you take?
The world you want but you can't
You can't have it

Wrap the propaganda
In any flag you wanna
Keep their eyes shut
Scared of everything
Wrap the propaganda
In any flag you wanna
Keep their eyes shut
Scared of everything

Is this the life that you want?
Is this the world that you want?
Is this the love that you take for granted?
Is this the life that you take?
The world you want but you can't
You can't have it
Is this the life that you want?
Is this the world that you want?
Is this the love that you take for granted?
Is this the life that you take?
The world you want but you can't
