Lyrics

Food in abundance, beggars and banks
God in His Heaven and His priests in tanks
Gold in the misery, sewer in the mind
Greed and corruption of every kind
They all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your head, look away again
They all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your head, look away again
They all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again
Fools in the Parliament, pollution in the stream
T.V., poverty and the big bad dream
Sex in the cinema, fear in the school
Censorship committees, they rule/we're cool
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your heads, look away again
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your heads, look away again
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn your heads, look away again
Composure in the little pill, courage in the beer
Mummy and daddy and the life of fear
Human relationships cast away
I hope we get together one of these days
And they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again
Don't they all know it's a cryin' shame
To turn their heads, look away again
