Silent Running

by Mike & the Mechanics Thursday, Dec. 20, 2001 at 1:21 AM

With descent being crushed, the media distorted, freedoms curtailed to the point of Orwellian fiction, I ask what is behind this maddness, any intelligent person must do the same, regardless of whether they like what they may find!!!!!



These are lyrics from the song "Silent Running" by Mike and the Mechanics. I thought it had some relevance to the current world situation. I apologize if someone feels this doesn't belong in the newswire.

Silent Running



Take the children and yourself

And hide out in the cellar

By now the fighting will be close at hand

Don't believe the church and state

And everything they tell you

Believe in me, I'm with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?

Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?

Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There's a gun and ammunition

Just inside the doorway

Use it only in emergency

Better you should pray to God

The Father and the Spirit

Will guide you and protect from up here

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?

Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?

Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag

Whatever flag they offer

Never hint at what you really feel

Teach the children quietly

For some day sons and daughters

Will rise up and fight while we stood still

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?

Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?

Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)

(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?

(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?

(Can you hear me running) hear me running?

Calling you, calling you
