It's No Game (Part 2)

Lyrics: 

Silhouettes and shadows watch the revolution
No more free steps to heaven
Just walky-talky - heaven or hearth
Just big heads and drums - full speed and pagan
Well it's no game

I am barred from the event
I really don't understand the situation
So where's the moral
People have their fingers broken
To be insulted by these fascists - it's so degrading
It's no game

Documentaries on refugees, couples 'gainst the target
Throw the rock against the road, and it breaks into pieces
Draw the blinds on yesterday, and it's all so much scarier
Put a bullet in my brain, and it makes all the papers

It's no game

Children 'round the world, put camel shit on the walls
Making carpets on treadmills, or garbage sorting

And it's no game

Because You're Young

Lyrics: 

Psychodelicate girl - come out to play
Little metal faced boy - don't stay away
He’s so war torn and resigned - she can't take any more
What are they trying to prove - what would they like to find

It's love back to front and no sides - like I say
These pieces are broken - like I say
These pieces are broken
Hope I'm wrong but I know

Because you're young
You'll meet a stranger some night
Because you're young
What could be nicer for you
And it makes me sad
So I'll dance my life away
A million dreams
A million scars

He punishes hard - was loving her such a crime
She took back everything she said
Left him nearly out of his mind
They're people I know- people I love
They seem so unhappy - dead or alive

It's love back to front and no sides - like I say
These pieces are broken - like I say
These pieces are broken
hope I'm wrong but I know
Because you're young
You'll meet a stranger some night
Because you're young
What could be nicer for you
And it makes me sad
So I'll dance my life away
A million dreams
A million scars

Lyrics: 

Well I walked in the pouring rain
And I heard the voice that cries it's all in vain
The face of doom was shining in my room
I just need one day somewhere far away
Lord I just need one day

Well I'll be breaking these rocks
And cuttin' this hay
Yes I'll be breaking these rocks
It's my price to pay

The river's so muddy but it may come clear
And I know too well what's keeping me here
I'm just the slave of a burning ray
Give me the night I can't take another sight
Please give me the night

Well I'll be breaking these rocks until the Kingdom comes
And cuttin' this hay until the Kingdom comes
Yes I'll be breaking these rocks until the Kingdom comes
It's my price to pay until the Kingdom comes

The sun keeps beating down the wall's a mile high
Up in the towers they're watching me hoping I'm gonna die

But they’ll open these cells when the Kingdom comes
I won’t be breaking no rocks when the Kingdom comes
Yes they’ll open these cells when the Kingdom comes
I won’t hear their talk when the Kingdom comes
I’m going up for pardon when the Kingdom comes
Well pardon me when the Kingdom comes

I won't be breaking no rocks
I won't be breaking no rocks
I won't be breaking no rocks
When the Kingdom comes

Scream Like A Baby

Lyrics: 

Well I wouldn't buy the merchandise
And I wouldn't fight no war
And I mixed with other colours
But the nurse don't care
And I hide under blankets
Or did I run away
I really can't remember
Last time I saw the light of day

But I remember Sam because he was like me

CHORUS
Scream like a baby
Sam was a gun
But I never knew his last name
And we never had no fun

Well the came down hard on the faggots
And they came down hard on the street
They came down harder on Sam
And we all knew he was beat
Thrown into the wagon
Blindfolded, chains, and they stomped on us
Took away our clothes and things
Pumped us full of strange drugs
And oh I saw Sam falling
Spitting in their eyes
But now I lay me down to sleep
And now I close my eyes
And I'm learning to be a part of society

CHORUS

No athletic program, no discipline, no book
He just sat in the backseat swearing he'd seek revenge
But he jumped into the furnace
Singing old songs we loved

CHORUS (twice)
