lyrics

There's travellers living in Sainsbury's car park
Locals are complaining that they don't pay any tax
I don't see 'em burning their Take That albums
Don't see 'em taking their Vodafone's back

There's travellers on the field in Sewardstone Road
A militia being formed on a Facebook page
Some people think an action group is just for talking
Some people are planning some GBH, GBH, GBH

It's casual racism
No escapin' it here

All is not well, all is not well, all is not well
It's getting' out of hand
All is not well, all is not well, all is not well
In Duncan Smith Land

A helicopter flying over the houses
A helicopter flying all bloody day
Apparently they're chasing illegal Romainians
That's OK but they're keeping me awake

And they're living in the Guide Hut on Kings Head Hill
There's a whole shanty town off of Advent Way
Don't care about their problems. Consider voting UKIP
Just wish the foreigners would go away, go away, go away

It's casual racism
No escapin' it here

All is not well, all is not well, all is not well
It's getting' out of hand
All is not well, all is not well, all is not well
In Duncan Smith Land

There's a homeless man living in Larkswood Park
Have you seen the queues for the Doctor's Surgery
No one wants to walk there after dark
I blame the immigrants, they got here early

And they're doggin' in the bushes at the back of my house
I'm tryin' not to look, no I don't know who
The council won't cut the trees, the gypsies will
It's so confusing I dunno what to do, dunno what to do, dunno what to do

It's casual racism
No escapin' it here

All is not well, all is not well, all is not well
It's getting' out of hand
All is not well, all is not well, all is not well
In Duncan Smith Land

Iain Duncan Smith Land
Iain Duncan Smith Land
Iain Duncan Smith Land
Iain Duncan Smith Land

They're Tory-voting
Immigrant scapegoating
Enoch Powell
Apocalypse-approaching
Hate-promoting
They're not joking
I don't understand
Iain Duncan Smith Land
