As we have seen, Sandra's mum & dad are part of entitled generation; always happy to look down on those not as fortunate while being no great shakes themselves. However, the mess the country is in is also hitting the middle aged too. The couple next door are going to lose their home & have split up as a consequence. Disaster is not as far away as they think.......


C#m F#m B7 E
all alone, this cold shell was our home,
my wife left for her mums the other day
C#m F#m B B7
We bought our home – but now we're both alone
we lost control - its gonna be took away

I'm in negative equity
the bank is coming after me
so many bills to pay
they're gonna take my roof away, but,

I cant afford this broken heart
cant afford to get the car to start
not just the car thats broken down
my whole world has run aground

you will see people looking down at me, though I know,
they're all in the same boat

where will I go, id really like to know
a working man who the system has brought down
ive got my job, but overtimes not enough
my wages spent the day before im paid


I'm in negative equity, nothing left there now for me
we all used the wrong way to vote, we'll all soon be in the same boat
this country has turned upside down
at the mercy of those heartless clowns
now your chin is stuck to your chest
& your told that its for the best


All alone, my sorrow in a song
what can I do, there's nothing more to say
that money spent was best used on a tent
& find a pitch to spend the rest of my days

I'm in negative equity.......
