Revolution Will Be Televised Submit Correct Lyrics

Pictures of dying going nationwide, while they're cold and hungry on the streets outside.
Broken promises make broken homes.
And they're all queuing up for a government loan.
Pledging your millions off a TV screen while the shit on your doorstep remains uncleaned.
Who said charity begins at home?
And you're all holding out for a government loan.
Chorus
And while your final trace of faith is being crucified, and while your only means of escaping fear is suicide.
Give us hope.
You arrive alone and you die alone.
You buy their trust so you trust their war, that's what they're paid to lead your Country for.
A flag and a pension and a marble stone supplied and provided by the government loan.
Pill dependence under private health while the rest of the world are medicating themselves.
The only guarantee is when we open our eyes this revolution will be televised.
I'm standing at the edge of the world.
There's chaos in the city as the capitol burns.
I'm calling, calling.
I'm standing at the gates of the west where the doors open wide for the American Express and I'm calling, calling.
I'm standing in the ghost of the town, looking up in the hope someone's looking back down.
I'm calling, calling.
I'm standing with my back to the wall and the sign in my head is I'll be dead before I'm gonna fall.
Calling, calling.
I'm standing at the edge of the world.
There's chaos in the city as the capital burns.
I'm calling, calling.
I'm standing at the gates of the west where the door is open wide for the fashionably dressed and I'm calling, calling.
I'm standing here looking at you.
And you're looking back at me like there's something I can do and I'm calling, calling.
