Play Dead

How do you expect us to carry on
To live our lives, doing us wrong
What is it that you expect from us
Why do you always expect too much?

I don’t understand anymore
What’s the point and it all for?
When you sail on in the breeze
Away from us in case we sneeze

(Chorus)
So now we play dead in desperation
As you continue with your emancipation
Pushing and pulling until we break
Why do you have so much hate?

No fight left in us now
We simply wouldn’t know anymore how
For you’ve bullied us into submission
And lost sight have we of our vision

As the sinking sun sets tonight
A little child does cry
For she’s hungry but not just for food
You have no idea, no real clue

(Chorus)
So now we play dead in desperation
As you continue with your emancipation
Pushing and pulling until we break
Why do you have so much hate?
