lyrics

Don’t want a cow, a goat, a plough, I want a real job
Not live in a hut of mud or be tending a flock
I don’t wanna have Christian aid
To wear a condom or I wont get paid
Don’t want a farm with fields of mines that blow my legs off
Don’t need a tribe a flag or want to get myself shot
I’m fed up getting eaten alive
Because of a lack pesticides.

I took a truck
Crossed the border at France
Smugglers trafficking Itinerants
I don’t want to live in a primitive state
Learn to survive on a council estate

I want a car a vote a coat with 10% off
Want a kebab a fag get drunk and beat up a cop
Want to have a steamy romance
Not one that’s been stitched up in advance
I’ll take the blame for bombs and drugs and girls on the game
I’ll pick your fruit, for free, just don’t tell them my name
Don’t ask where I come from, oh yeh,
We let you run your country but you got it wrong

I took a truck
Crossed the border at France
Smugglers trafficking Itinerants
I don’t want to live in a primitive state
Learn to survive on a council estate
I took a chance
Crossed the border at France
Smugglers trafficking new citizens
I don’t want to live in a primitive state
Want to smoke a fat cigar and be as rich as Bill Gates

A rapist’s good intentions
With romantic interventions
First you kill me then you bill me
Take your Bombers Euros Dollars
Pack your fear of Ayatollahs and go

We’re not the same, a drain, a claim as the eugenicists say
Taking the jobs, for yobs the snobs can’t give away
I didn’t ask to be born
I guess instead of goats you’ll be sending us porn

I took a truck
Crossed the border at France
Smugglers trafficking Itinerants
I don’t want to live in a primitive way
Learn to survive on a minimum wage

I took a truck
Crossed the border at France
Smugglers trafficking Itinerants
I don’t want to live in a primitive state
Learn to survive on a council estate

about

Belter UK

With lyrics sharper than razor-wire and tunes that stick the boot in, Belter is punk for grown-ups who like a dance.

Their first single "TV Junkie" was released in 2012, gaining worldwide airplay and acclaim.

It was followed in January 2013 by a 3-track EP, ‘Invisible Cat’, which sees the band’s trademark sound expanded with a little help from their friends on strings, brass and slide guitar.
