Howard Jones – Change The Man lyrics

Don't talk to me about ban the bomb
Don't talk to me about who's side I'm on
Replace the system with one just the same
Don't you know that we are all to blame

It's so easy as an armchair blamer
Get off your seat and make a personal change sir
Can't change the system by smashing it down
Inside route personal revolution

Change the man
Rip out the root
Let's get rid of this insanity

When the mothers had told the kids straight
When the fathers felt no more hate
When a man can walk down the street without fear
Then thing must change and it's not too late
