In a world of
movers and shakers and moonbeam rakers
pimps and dealers and real cool free wheelers
slick fork-tongued entrepreneurs
movin' with glitzy glamorous whores
all with an angle, all with a line,
all goin' t'score real big time.
Who cares about
the heavy hearted mother the anguished young brother
the kid on dope searchin' for hope
the Clydesdie father with the asbestos lung
dumped on life's ladder's lowest rung
the damaged big sister conned by a twister
all trying to live in a system with no give.
the society the community the neighbouring deed
the thought the act for the other's need
the carers the sharers the giving hand
the dream of all our children's promised land
the open world free from hate
where exploitation is an impossible fate?
