Voices of a Future

Pok & the Spacegoats
Language: English



(1999)
da Peace Not War
political rhetoric: I know it is all lies
doublespeak duplicity
you can read it in the eyes
see the silver plated
squirming of the tongue
some sycophant, a corporate slave
announces we will bomb
you feed the world with little wars
by selling tyrants arms
as long as they are subservient
how could there be qualms?
customers must not fight back
what happens when they do?
spin a tale of right and wrong
and gloss over the truth
visions and voices of a better world
war no more
voices of a future speak

twisted lies from puppet lips
TV, papers, spread the fear
it's all sewn up, but listen in
voices of a future are near
as long as no-one knows
or doesn't dare to ask
a silver tongue says what it likes
but voices crack the mask
should these voices speak to you
do you think that you might hear
and if these words might make a thread
then know that hope is near
for a facade does not last for long
tyrants fall that's all
voices of a future speak
and to our souls they call
visions and voices of a better world
war no more
voices of a future speak
