Hold On – JR Murphy

Just wrote these new lyrics, been listening to Pete Seeger and Bruce Springstein singing Keep Your Eyes on the Prize, Hold On.  Was fuming after watching TV One coverage of ‘independent’ review of WINZ shootings. Government and media spin sickening.  Makes you want to give up when the lies are at the top level of government, ‘consultants’ & news media.

JR Murphy’s bound for court
Cause they’re not doing what they ought
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Says disabled are treated like dirt
People in suits inflict more hurt
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Freedoms aims are a muddy street
Soon the highways of hell are gunna meet
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Keep your hands on the gospel plough
In the fires of hell here now

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Mentally ill are rotting in jail
Cause health services designed to fail
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Being told you’re just no good
Just an addict, could if you would

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Been watchin ‘the man’ telling you lies
Media bigots in disguise
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
Day after the election was lost
Armour went on and the gloves came off

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

That thing that you did wrong
Is not listen to us and our songs
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
That thing that we did was right
Was for good to keep up the fight

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on, hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
(Repeat)
Hold on (repeat x 6

(slowly)
Wanna go to heaven cause I’ve been told
The streets are paved with gold, instead
I’ll keep my eyes on the prize and hold on

Note that verse referring to Bill English telling an audience all people on long term welfare were like addicts – WTF – that was so insulting and corrupt.  Bill English knows my situation and I can’t get health care - lying pig.
