about

Charmed is about the entitled arrogance of the privately educated rich.
It’s about disaster capitalism as pursued by the Moggs & Johnson’s of the world, using jingoism as a mask for self-interest.

The music references faux sixties optimism and features Colin George Lamont’s ace drumming, flute by Simon James and backing vocals by Helena Jacks.

lyrics

Charmed

Gathering of privileged allies
Champagne, cocaine, croquet on the lawn
Harrow, Roedean, Oxbridge narcissists
Charmed

Sheltered by advantage and deceit
Private school to redbrick psychopaths
Plotting cuts and tax breaks for themselves
Charmed

Charmed lives
Larger than life lives
More important than the rest
More important than the poor

Ego above empathy or truth
Think they’ll never have to pay a price
Politics are just a game to those
Charmed

Charmed lives
Larger than life lives
More important than the rest
More important than the poor

Gathering of arrogant allies
Way outside our lowly urban sprawl
Everything is just a game to those
Charmed

Charmed lives
Larger than life lives
More important than the rest
More important than the poor
