They've been bled dry
By the Troika vampires
Life sucked out
With each debt repayment

They've been drowned
By the European dunk tank
Immersed by the rising tides
Of unemployment and child poverty

They've been strangled
On the austerity gallows
Growth and hope stifled
By a choking noose

So who can blame them
For attempting to kick off their tormentors
Tear out the catheters, climb to higher ground
or cut the hanging rope
Would we not do the same?
