  • Don't let the night divide us
    The light will come and find us
    To keep the darkness from the door
    Don't let their hatred blind us
    Their lies will help unite us
    Let's make a promise here and now

    Don't let those boys from Eton
    Suggest that we are beaten, no, no, no

    A land now so infected
    Can be free and equal
    And when the sunlight bathes us
    With sympathy and kindness

    We have the cause and the conscience
    We have the plans and the purpose
    The light will come and find us
    Don't let the night divide us

    Reject all propaganda
    They can't hide from truth's arrow
    Vengeance will be yours and mine
    We may use peace or violence
    We may wage war or silence
    This is a warning not a prayer

    Don't let those boys from Eton
    Suggest that we are beaten, no, no, no

    A land now so infected
    Can be free and equal
    And when the sunlight bathes us
    With sympathy and kindness

    We have the cause and the conscience
    We have the plans and the purpose
    The light will come and find us
    Don't let the night divide us

    A land now so infected
    Can be free and equal
    And when the sunlight bathes us
    With sympathy and kindness

    We have the cause and the conscience
    We have the plans and the purpose
    The light will come and find us
    Don't let the night divide us

    A land now so infected
    Can be free and equal
    And when the sunlight bathes us
    With sympathy and kindness

    We have the cause and the conscience
    We have the plans and the purpose
    The light will come and find us
    Don't let the night divide us
