There's a skill, it's nothing we could learn at school
With a will to survive beneath this rule
Money thrives as corruptions president
Waste the life of the yong and innocent
But after all and the resistant can be disobeyed
So, when we call, please don't think twice or be afraid
Hey, mister, say something

Say the word - if your eyes are open
Say the word - before this love is broken

(say the word)


The lights are down, but you don't sleep so tight
The words around that we play for keeps tonight
As we all know even the best made plans go wrong sometimes
But if it blows well be the ones they victimize
Hey, mister, say something


(chorus) (chorus) (chorus) (chorus) (chorus)


To put this right
(ha!)
