Get The Message Lyrics

by Naked Earth

Hey, Mr Politician, what's going on in your mind
The people are crying out for help and you're just wasting our time
Oh -- a mouthful of rhetoric
All that lip just makes us sick
Unbutton your collar, loosen your tie
Get it together, stop feeding us lies
Get the message, a message from the human race
Get the message, our planet is a sacred place
Get the message, it's simple and it's oh so true
Guide us through these troubled times cos we're depending on you
Chlorofluorocarbons -- you know them as CFCs
Fifteen years ago you ignored the warning pleas
"There'll never be a hole in the atmosphere"
That's what you said, now the hole has spread
And the people are starting to fear
Get the message...
Elected by the people -- what do you desire
Are you an elected official or just for hire
Elected by the people -- the people are aware
Our quality of life needs repair
Too many people sleeping in the streets
Too many children with not enough to eat
All that money wasted building a war machine
Has made the global economy the worst it's ever been, so...
Get the message...
Elected by the people -- what do you desire
Are you an elected official or just for hire
Elected by the people -- the people are aware
Our quality of life needs repair
Hey, Mr Politician, what's going on in your mind
The people are crying out for help and you're just wasting our time
Oh -- a mouthful of rhetoric
All that lip just makes us sick
Unbutton your collar, loosen your tie
Get it together or we're all gonna die
Get the message...
