Testo trovato su MySongBook
As long as the mushroom clouds don't rise
Above our own suburban skies
We can pretend that the peace dove flies
And that the revolution's here

The walls come down and the world rejoices
Listen to the sound of a million voices
The ringing of the changes the peoples' choices
The revolution's here
The holocaust averted and the peace drums sound
Listen to the rhythm the whole world round
The dogs of war slink underground
The revolution's here

Meanwhile in the Lebanon another woman dies
In Guatemala 'Desaparecidos!' is the cry
The people of Tigray sob and sigh
Don't they know the revolution's here
All over the world men kill for a god
And Mandela may be free but his people are not
Tienaman Square is a bloodstained blot
But the revolution's here

And meanwhile here in our own backyard
The children on the streets are cold and scarred
And a woman had better be on her guard
But the revolution's here
And God help your soul if your skin's not white
Or if you need to walk the streets at night
Or if your pay cheque stretches tight
But the revolution's here
