lyrics

TELL ME THAT WE'RE HUMAN

Hold me in your arms love,
Tell me it's alright,
Tell me that there's something,
Cause to live and cause to die.
Tell me that you'll hold me
Till the storm has passed
Till the clouds of want are scattered
And we're free at last

Tell me that we're human
Tell me that we're human
Tell me that you love me

And distances, conditions
Pull true lovers to and fro,
Till the soil becomes so arrid,
That there's nowhere love can grow
For each man kills the thing he loves
And each man has to die
Factory existence lifetime
To the workhouse in the sky

Tell me that we're human
Tell me that we're human
Tell me that you love me

And generation ketamine
Has tranquilised our hearts
Quelled the fire in our bellies
Leaving only a few sparks
There will be nothing left but
Individuality
The great mantra of the rulers
But the priveledge of the few

Tell me that we're human
Tell me that we're human
Tell me that you love me

But I hope I am a futurist
Not a relic of past ideas
Cause if we don't make a change soon
I see streams of blood and tears
But we can turn those sparks into
Bonfires that rage
From Cairo to Madrid
Kill the blood-lust of an age,
Hold me in your arms love,
Tell me it's alright,
Tell me that there's something,
Cause to live and cause to die.
Tell me that you'll hold me
Till the storm has passed
Till the clouds of want are scattered
And we're free at last

Tell me that we're human
Tell me that we're human
Tell me that you love me
