We've got trouble, that's for sure
We've got millions unemployed
Some kids can't write, some kids can't read
Some kids are hungry, some overeat

Well

Our TV leader boldly speaks
The words of Christ, he tries to preach
"We need more power to hold the line
The strength of darkness still abides"

It must be hell
Living in the world, suffering in the world like you

Keep in a straight line, stay in tune
No need to worry, only fools
End up in prison or conscience cells
Or in asylums they help to build

We're free to worship, free to speak
We're free to kill, it's guaranteed
We've got our problems, that's for sure
Clean up the backyard, don't lock the door

I said we, we ain't gonna drown

I said we, we are heaven bound
