(Gary Moore/Neil Carter/Ian Paice/Neil Murray)

Searching each day for the answers,
Watching our hopes disappear.
Set on a course for disaster,
Living our lives in fear.
Our leaders leave us in confusion.
For them there's only one solution.


Caught in the fight for survival,
Trapped with our backs to the wall.
Are we just lambs to the slaughter,
Who wait for the axe to fall?
Our world is headed for destruction.
Our fate is in the hands of fools.


Shadows of the past,
Victims of the future.
How long will it last?
Victims of the future?


Into the verbal arena,
Armed with the lies that they tell.
They're fighting for world domination,
Backed by the weapons of hell.
Is there no end to all this madness?
Is there no hope for us at all?


Shadows of the past,
Victims of the future.
How long will it last?
Victims of the future.


Shadows of the past,
Victims of the future.
How long will it last?
Victims of the future.
Yeah.


Shadows of the past,
Victims of the future.
How long will it last?
Victims of the future.


Shadows of the past,
Victims of the future.
How long will it last?
Victims of the future.


Victims of the future.
Victims of the future.
Victims of the future.
Victims of the future.
Yeah.
