Sitting on a wall in my hometown
Looking through a mirror – see tomorrow on the ground –
Got nowhere to go.
Filling up the hours with a TV screen – am I a failure?
Don’t seem to fit the whole world scheme –
Work, it’s a fundamental right.
Looking West looking East -travel light
Forget the beast a new way of trying.
What they have is for themselves we are uninvited to the feast.
And people are dying.
They close the doors, there’s no work around here, I say – Political Lying
Forget what’s yours don’t make a sound-
Can you Ski on Butter Mountains – do we swim in Milky Lakes?
Those tons of grain they store – could feed a million mouths.
I can see it – can you see it?
Why not? Work is a Fundamental right.
