Stone

  • Most people wake
    From a nightmare to find
    Everything's great
    It was all in their mind
    So am I still sleeping
    Or is this all real
    If I keep on pinching myself
    Will the fear disappear, oh no

    It's like a stone hanging over our heads
    Ready to blow
    Cos this is our time
    You've got to believe
    That it's yours and it's mine
    You can't close your eyes to the lies
    Perpetrated by dangerous fools
    Cos they're handing out rules
    Like a prophecy chiselled in stone
    Stone
    They're carving out our fate
    Why can't they leave us alone
    Stone, stone
    And messing up the world
    They've got to leave it alone

    They've signed on some paper
    To end all the fear
    But this propaganda
    Is perfectly clear
    They're still building and testing
    But what can we do
    Condemning the seas
    And the land and the trees to a tomb
    Oh no

    It's like a stone hanging over your heads
    Where do we go
    Cos this is your time
    You've got to believe
    That it's yours and it's mine
    You can't close your eyes to the lies
    Perpetrated by dangerous fools
    Cos they're handing out rules
    Like a prophecy chiselled in stone
