WHITE COATS (NEW MODEL ARMY)

Well we know what makes the flowers grow
But we donīt know why
And we all got the knowledge of DNA
But we still die
We perch so thin and fragile here
Upon the land
And the earth that moves beneath us
We donīt understand
So we rush towards the jugdement day
When she reclaims
A toast to the Luddite martyrs then
Who died in vain
Down at the lab. theyīre working still
Finishing off
How do we tell the people in the white coats
Enough is enough is enough?

Chorus: Hey, hey I listen to you pray
As if some help will come
Hey, hey she will dance on our graves
When we are dead and gone
When we are dead and gone

You and I we made no suicide pact
We didnīt want to die
But we watch the wall, little darling
While the chemical trucks go by
This desperate imitation now
Of innocence
These last few days at Jonestown
Ainīt got nothing on this

Chorus: Hey, hey I listen to you pray

Now beneath the fitted carpets
Beyond the padded cells
Within these crimes of passion
The naked truth she dwells
And this furyīs just a part
Desire is just a part
The cracking ice, the splitting rock

Chorus: Hey, hey I listen to you pray

As children learn about the world
We built that world of sand
Along the beach we laboured hard
With our bare hands
We worked until the sun went down
Beneath the waves
And the tide call rolling splashing in
Washed the wall away
How do we tell the people in the white coats
Enough is enough?
