Anti Privacy

Monitoring powers and snooping laws
spying dressed up in an official name
a data bill riddled with flaws
society with no rights to claim

Civil liberties bound up in red tape
privacy becomes a thing of the past
heading towards a big brother state
how long will the madness last?

We are doing this to protect you they say
crime is on the rise
the Home Secretary paves the way
CCTV, the Watcher's eyes

Whilst out in the public view
be careful how you act
cameras from all angles filming you
anti-terrorist groups are keeping track
