Once there was confidence but now there is fear Once there was laughter but now only tears Once there were reasons for our optimism But now we're all drowning in a sea of cynicism
But I hope and I pray in my own naive way That one day we can reach some sort of understanding Try a little more sharing Yry a little more giving Might find a sense of belonging Might find a sense of belonging
And I know you think I'm young and naive Because I go on CND marches, well that's my decision I think that you're the one who's naive If you believe all the things you see on television It's all propaganda and like a fool you accept it And like a fool you ignore it Why don't you try and stop it To try and find a sense of belonging
I know you watch "World In Action" and "Panorama" And to you it's just another soap opera drama, it can't happen here Have a nice cup of tea and we'll all stay calm And we'll come to no harm in our nice warm underground shelters There'll be helter skelter There'll be babies dying, you'll hear their mothers crying I've seen the devil smiling, I've seen the devil smiling Try to find a sense of belonging A sense of belonging
And you laugh and make jokes about what you will do When the button is pressed and we hear the four minute warning And if you think it's funny now wait 'till the bomb goes off You'll all be in fucking hysterics You'll see babies dying, you'll hear mothers crying I'm only asking for one thing Just want a sense of belonging
No more weapons and no more wars No more violence What's it all for anyway?
