Get Better

I’m very impressed by the new album from Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip so far.  I doubt I will get as attached to any of the tracks as I am to Thou Shalt Always Kill, because that really is a classic, but there are some fine lyrics on tracks like Great Britain, Stake a Claim and Get Better, which are all political but in a non-party, pragmatic, personal way, and funny with it.  Here is the official video for the last of those:

Imagine a song that really reached out and touched kids
and not in a Daily Mail way, innocence corrupted
but in a way where criticism remained constructive
and wasn’t too politicised, and children weren’t instructed
to behave in a way that was unrealistic
or made out the way they lived was somehow sick and twisted
that simply pointed out reasons to get it together
not shouting get a job but just saying ‘get better’
