about

Traitors (Mix A)
Written: Richard Pierce Saunderson & Marina Florance.
A political song written for today.

"Marina and I wanted to write a song that was really explicit about the personal cost of the political situation in the UK right now, and about how soundbite politics is worsening xenophobia and discrimination. Legal immigrants and their descendants are being vilified, and we didn't want that to go unnoticed. My personal view is that all music is political, and that artists and writers have to stand up for those who are being denied a voice." - Richard Pierce Saunderson

PS Traitors (mix 1) coming soon

lyrics

We came as strangers, no rights, no rewards
we held up this country, straight after the wars

Chorus
The media deplore us, lies and hate haunt us
we are traitors, we are traitors to the pure
The media deplore us, racism taunts us
we are traitors, we are traitors to the pure

Death threats on white paper, murder in the streets
Enemies of the people making Britain great

Chorus
The media deplore us, lies and hate haunt us
we are traitors, we are traitors to the pure
The media deplore us, no dealers taunt us
we are traitors, we are traitors to the pure

Is this still our haven, a place for those in need
or are we a country broken, driven by hate and greed

Chorus
The media deplore us, lies and hate haunt us
we are traitors, we are traitors to the pure
The media deplore us, racism taunts us
we are traitors, we are traitors to the pure

We came as strangers, no rights, no rewards
