 MAIN RIFF x2 (this time with wah completely pulled
 back, and whammy/pitchshifter set

 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)
