Victims Of Circumstance

Album: Victims Of Circumstance (1984)
  • Saw the paper the other day
    Started to read
    Seems they've got a new way
    Of fighting all their wars
    Just what we need
    When will you stop playing all your games?
    Won't you listen when we say
    I don't remember anyone asking me about it
    Or don't we matter anyway?

    Victims of circumstance that's what we are
    Hidden from light so we can't see
    Victims of circumstance that's what we are
    You and me, you and me

    Those mistakes that you all made in the past
    You never seem to see
    Do you have to bring your ships across the water?
    Please let us be
    Master, master, I really want to live
    Do we always have to plead?
    Looks like you've put us in the frontline once again
    Won't you stop this insanity?

    Victims of circumstance that's what we are
    Hidden from light so we can't see
    Victims of circumstance that's what we are
    You and me, you and me Writer/s: LES HOLROYD
