John Farnham – See The Banners Fall lyrics

John farnham, david hirschfelder, and ross fraser

All the world's a stage they say
But who decides the parts we play
A mourner in the lebanon
A logger in the amazon

Soldiers in the square of shame
Our children play in acid rain
They won't pay a martyr's bail
Black fella in a white man's jail

See the banners fall
Hear the future call
Time to start again
They're dancing on the wall
Can you hear them call
See the banners fall

The colonel wears pierre cardin
But clothes don't always make the man
The teacher preaches what he's told
But can the preacher save your soul

See the banners fall
Hear the future call
Time to start again
They're dancing on the wall
Can you hear them call
See the banners fall

Eagles in a sea of oil
Noble men on barren soil
Children waiting in the wings
Wonder what the future brings

See the banners fall
Hear the future call
Time to start again
They're dancing on the wall
Can you hear them call
See the banners fall
