When it all comes down the line
And the lights they turn to greed
And you race off with your tyres screamin'
Rollin' thunder
And the people choke with poison
Children cry in fear
But you've got your fast bullet
One way ticket outta here

Fall on your knees today
And pray the world will mend its ways
Get to your feet again
Refugees from the heartbreak and the pain

In the cities in the streets
There's a tension you can feel
Breaking strain is fast approaching
Guns and riots
The politicians gamble and lie to save their skins
And the press get fed the scapegoats
Public enemy number one

Fall on your knees today
And pray the world will mend its ways
Get to your feet again
Refugees from the heartbreak and the pain

A million network slaves
In an advertising new age
I don't need a crystal ball to sell ya
Your children have more brains
Than your drug infested remains
California dreamin' as the earth dies screamin'

Fall on your knees today
And pray the world will mend its ways
Get to your feet again
Refugees from the heartbreak, oh

Fall on your knees today
And pray the world will mend its ways
Get to your feet again
Refugees from the heartbreak and the pain

Songwriters
MURRAY, DICKINSON
