‎[1989]‎
Album “The Enraged Will Inherit the Earth”‎

mccarthy-the enraged will inherit the earth

L’occupazione delle contee dell’Ulster e il sanguinoso conflitto che ne è seguito hanno sempre ‎imbarazzato molto la sinistra inglese… In questa canzone, scritta da Tim Gane, i McCarthy mettono ‎il dito nella piaga: raccolte di fondi per i Sandinisti che in Nicaragua combattevano contro ‎l’imperialismo USA e la “Contra” finanziata da Reagan, mentre in patria le stesse persone, ‎certamente di sinistra, tuonavano contro l’IRA e magari raccoglievano fondi per le famiglie dei ‎soldati inglesi occupanti uccisi in Nord Irlanda o per i reduci…‎
Far away in Central America
Young men and women fight to make their country free
To kick out a foreign army
The enemies of freedom
What will you say when someone asks you
‎"Whose side are you on?"‎
In your fight, sisters and brothers far away
I'm on your side

But not far away
Young men and women fight to make their country free
To kick out a foreign army
The enemies of freedom
What will you say when someone asks you
‎"Whose side are you on?"‎
In your fight, sisters and brothers not far away
I'm not on your side

Differences?‎
Don't bother me with differences
Just let me think of it
I'm not a patriot, but
It's British boys you're gunning down
It's our good boys you kill
I'm not a patriot, but
I won't turn against my land

There's a great difference between liberators and those who only kill
You are terrorists and they are freedom fighters
You are murderers and they are revolutionaries
In your fight, sisters and brothers not far away
I'm not on your side

Differences?‎
Don't bother me with differences
Just let me think of it
I'm not a patriot, but
It's British boys you're blowing up
It's our good boys you kill
I'm not a patriot, but
I won't turn against my land, no, no
I'm not a patriot, but
I won't turn against my land

‎[I want you to repeat after me:‎
I am (I am) a revolutionary]‎
