Levellers – Broken Circles lyrics

Fired forty rounds in the centre of town
He thought to bring the world around
Sleepless nights with God and Christ
The New Messiah
Burn the world to change the days
Can be done in better ways
But to make news and front page
You've got to aim higher

They didn't build Jerusalem
They didn't find the land
For reasons of security
They couldn't find the plans

And we're left standing watching from below
No new songs and no new heroes
Standing on the sidelines watching the flow
Waiting for the day the circle's broken

Took the mic to save day
The rock star's going to have his say
Interpret things in any way as if it matters
Cos nothing's black and nothing's white
Nothing appears to be quite right
It'll be this way until the day
The circle's shattered

I hear an old song yesterday
About a better world
You know the story
Well, They're all the same
The boy gets the girl

And we're left standing watching from below
No new songs and no new heroes
Standing on the sidelines watching the flow
Waiting for the day the circle's broken

From the tips of your fingers
The rest is numb
You begin to feel the warmth of the sun
It's taking away been taking away
All you once knew
Taking it back takes all you've got
No time to sit and watch it rot
Believe it's yours and not the lies
Or all hell to you

They didn't build Jerusalem
They didn't find the land
For reasons of security
They couldn't find the plans

And we're left standing watching from below
No new songs and no new heroes
Standing on the sidelines watching the flow
Waiting for the day the circle's broken
