Lyrics

Before you point the finger, I hope the whole thing disappears

Remember empty words will fall, will fall upon the deafest ears.

You won, t give in without a fight, afoul play without a doubt

No silver lining to be seen in this thundercloud and that's not allowed

In the ideal world we'd be free to choose

But in my real world you can bet we're gonna lose.

Your money fills their pockets fear fills their tiny minds

At last the world is talking now this ain't no way to treat mankind no

A sudden blackout stops the show but does'nt stop the way I am

Cos all my life I've been afraid your not the first to say I am

I'll do all I can for an ideal world where we're free to choose

But in my real world oh we can bet we're gonna lose

In the ideal world we can start again

But in my real world hangs on the colour of your skin

We could be free forever if they would only change

But fools never change no oh no oh

A speck of blue up in the sky a song of hope a noble thought

But how long must the people die before the guilty ones are caught

Oh will you spare a thought for an ideal world

Where we're free to choose for an ideal world

Where we're no longer born to lose in the ideal world we can start again

Now in my real world lets put an end to suffering end suffering

In the ideal world we're now free to choose

Oh in my real world we are set to air our views

In the ideal world we can start again now in my real world

It's not it's not about the colour of your skin ooh ooh oh oh oh ooh

Oh no longer bare the news Start again oh we can start again
