Sing Our Own Song (V)



One In Ten (V)



I am a one in ten
A number on a list
I am a one in ten
Even though I don't exist
Nobody knows me
But I'm always there
Statistical reminder of a world that doesn't care

My arms enfold the dole queue
Malnutrition dulls my hair
My eyes are black and lifeless
With an underprivileged stare
I'm the beggar on the corner
Will no one spare a dime
I'm the child that never learns to read
Because no one spared the time

I am a one in ten
A number on a list
I am a one in ten
Even though I don't exist
Nobody knows me
But I'm always there
Statistical reminder of a world that doesn't care

I'm the murderer and the victim
The license with the gun
I'm a sad and bruised old lady
In an alley in a slum
I'm a middle aged businessman
With chronic heart disease
I'm another teenage suicide
In a street that has no trees

I am a one in ten
A number on a list
I am a one in ten
Even though I don't exist
Nobody knows me
But I'm always there
Statistical reminder of a world that doesn't care

I'm a starving third world mother
A refugee without a home
I'm a house wife hooked on Valium
I'm a pensioner alone
I'm a cancer ridden specter
Discovering the earth
I'm another hungry baby
I'm an accident of birth

I am a one in ten
A number on a list
I am a one in ten
Even though I don't exist
Nobody knows me
But I'm always there
Statistical reminder of a world that doesn't care

I am a one in ten
A number on a list
I am a one in ten
Even though I don't exist
Nobody knows me
But I'm always there
Statistical reminder of a world that doesn't care

I'm Not Fooled So Easily (V)




I've been listening to what you said
And wondering if it could be true
If it's as bad as you say out there
I'll leave the going out to you

Statistics prove its not too bright
To walk the darker streets at night
Or to talk to people you don't know
My worlds become a horror show

There's a murder in my living room
My child is watching avidly
Should I venture out tonight
Tomorrow he'll be watching me

You pay your money take your choice
But every channel plays the same
The audience hears his master's voice
Keeps him scared and keeps him tame

I'm not believing all I see
Fabrications on T. V.
Distort the news, feed us your views
I'm not fooled so easily

The Earth Dies Screaming (V)




A warm dry wind is all that breaks the silence
Highways quiet, scars across the land
People lie, eyes closed, no longer dreaming
The earth dies screaming

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Your country needs you
Let's strike up the band

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Despite all odds
We must defend our land

Like scattered pebbles, cars lie silent waiting
Oil less engines seized by dirt and sand
Bodies hanging limp, no longer bleeding
The earth dies screaming

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Your country needs you
Let's strike up the band

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Despite all odds
We must defend our land

Half eaten meals lie rotting on the tables
Money clutched within a bony hand
Shutters down, the banks are not receiving
The earth dies screaming

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Your country needs you
Let's strike up the band

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Despite all odds
We must defend our land

As Always You Were Wrong Again (V)



Raise the price of parking fines
Boost for the economy
If that don't work, we close the mines
Starve the poor of industry

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

We proved again, we rule the waves
Blow for white democracy
That Britains never shall be slaves
Long as they agree with me

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
We can see how much you've got

We'll close the roads, divide the land
Put out the rage that burns within
Break the link of dirty hands
At any cost we've got to win

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
We can see how much you've got

Keep them poor and wanting more
Deprive them of their basic rights
Hunger banging at their door
Take away their will to fight

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seem a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

I Wont Close My Eyes (V)



(chorus)
I won`t close my eyes
To the sufferers plight.
In a world full of sadness
I won`t turn off my light.

Our cries for justice are shots in the dark
But our strength`s in our bite
And not in our bark
It`s time to stand
And shout it out loud
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

(chorus)

I won`t close my eyes
When I know that i`m right
When i`m drowning in tears
I won`t turn off my light.

We`re shown no respect
But that can`t break our pride,
When our backs to the wall
We won`t run and we won`t hide
It`s time to stand, face the oncoming crowd
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

(chorus)

I wont`t close my eyes
When the future don`t look bright
Though the road seems too long
I won`t turn off my light
In a world full of darkness,
I won`t turn off my light

Can't Stand Losing You (V)
