Tiresome Times – Info

I always dread to
Open the news each day
But I still won’t turn away

Repeating problems
Yet every yesterday
Followed by little progress made

If you exchange your heart for money
It ain’t gonna beat what’s right

Tiresome times…
Tiresome times…

Sometimes I step back
Take a different guise
Try to see it with fresh eyes

But the cold truth
Ruins every view
Within moments of sight

If you exchange your time for money
It’s gonna spend your life

Tiresome times…
Tiresome times…

Freeze the factories
Break the banks
Shed the fur coats from the rats

Fire the phonies
Trash the tanks
Feel the strain roll off our backs

The few are able to decide
Which of us will make it through the night
Is that right?
To even ask you seems impolite
Insulting even, I think we’ve had enough
Don’t you?
Don’t you?

Sometimes I feel trapped
On a frantic ride
Where we are carried by the tide

And we must float
Keep us all alive
Not a moment to realise

If you exchange morals for money
It’s gonna cost a life

Tiresome times…
Tiresome times…

Freeze the factories
Break the banks
Shed the fur coats from the rats

Fire the phonies
Trash the tanks
Feel the strain roll off our backs

Freeze the factories
Break the banks
Shed the fur coats from the rats

Fire the phonies
Trash the tanks
Feel the strain roll off our backs

The words of Lennon
Enjoyed but ignored
Did we imagine, do no more?

And Martin Luther
Turned dreams to fairer laws
Yet we would sleep walk to civil war

If you exchange your home for money
It’s gonna be your last goodbye

Tiresome times…
Tiresome times…

Great human beings
People like Susan B
Rallied against adversity

And now we’ve Greta
Wisdom beyond her teens
But will we match her and take heed?

If you exchange the script be honest
We’re here to nurture life

There’s still time…
There’s still time…

Surely we all know the answer already?
