The July installment of our 2016 singles series. A song about project fear and Scottish independence. More world class sloganeering, really.


I can tell you all the things that you want to know,
Like how to build a country and lose it all.
But I can't tell you all the things that you want to hear:
Like how to save your life from project fear.

We know they're lying to our face, we read between the lies,
Why do they lie to everybody all the damn time?

They pushed the middle ground to voting no,
By spinning constant stories to win the vote,
And by telling us what would go wrong if we broke the chains of the British curse.

The sickness that they give us is manipulation on purpose.
This project that the lead with is futile; it's pointless.

They're just telling you how you're supposed to think.
So pull your head out of the toxic air and dispel project fear.
