MAIN RIFF x2 (this time with wah completely pulled
back, and whammy/pitchshifter set
to harmonize 1 octave up)
VERSE
Close the pits sanctify Roy Link an OBE,
Shareholding a piece of this fucking country,
Fossilize make Yorkshire into a tourist resort,
And dream of new ways to humble the poor.
CHORUS
Gold against the soul,
White liberal hate slavery,
Needs Thai labour to clean his home,
Gold erodes,
Erodes the soul,
Erodes the soul.
MAIN RIFF x2 (for 2nd time, change whammy/pitchshifter
to harmonize 2 octaves higher)

Working class cliches start here,
Either cloth caps or smack victims,
Gold destroyed,
Destroyed the soul,
Destroyed the soul.
