OVERBOARD

You haven't the slightest idea
what it's all about
It's just number and figures
you keep pushing around
If you only where a properly businessman
skilled in a craft or a trade
but the only thing you do properly
is all the grief you make

Wrong men in government
Wrong people supporting them
Throw these people overboard

You look at the world as it's something
that you righteously own
but who is rockin' the boat now
where are your followers gone...
The passengers getting worried
there's mutiny in the air
A lifeboat is secretly lowered
You can smell the fear

Wrong men in government
Wrong people supporting them
Throw these people overboard

I am just a stranger
avoided every fight
Imagine I was trying to convince myself
everything is gonna be all right
And having you blindfolded on your knees
a gun to your head I know it will
Bang, bang goes the verdict
Bang, bang your dead !

Wrong men in government
Wrong people supporting them
Throw these people overboard

Great lyrics, and a good protest song. Let's hope that the times soon'll be a-changing...
