I find myself concerned for the common man these days
Evil are the minds that push the divide
Forced to live a life in fear that his future is on the wane
Midnight regulations, m-m-midnight regulations

Burns his candle down, working to make ends meet
But what can be done about the way things have become?
Fingers to the bone ready to admit defeat
Midnight regulations, m-m-midnight

Brother, there is no charity
For the common man when he's in need of relief

And now he's hanging on to his final stitch of faith
So here's to all the years of deaf ear fallen prayers
Rich men behind closed doors are trying to keep him in his place
Midnight regulations, m-m-midnight regulations

Oh, all you common men, you need to fight for a new way
Old hearts we need to mend, it's time to start again
The palace wall's dismantled, brick by brick you will have your day
Midnight regulations, m-m-midnight

Brother, there is no charity
For the common man when he's in need of relief

They say just to hold onto your hope
But you know if you swallow your pride you will choke

Brother there is no charity
There is no charity, there is no charity
For the common man when he is in need of relief
When he is in need, when he is in need
Brother, brother

Midnight, midnight regulations
Midnight, midnight regulations
