Contenders

Heaven 17

We're going to stop this world from turning
We build it up you knock it down
If you go high then we'll go higher
Beyond the sky without a sound


It's gonna take a lot but we got plenty


Keep building up keep movin' round
If you use ten then we'll use twenty


They're up above and underground - all around
We've won we've lost we've counted up the cost
And we've evened out the scores we are contenders


I'm telling you so pay attention


These words of truth come from above
In God we trust and he has told me
I need you now and I'm talking love


We want a piece of what you're selling
Put up your hands and face the wall
How much it costs there is no telling
How much it costs to walk so small - and we're so tall


In truth we dare we people just don't care
We've got you running scared we are contenders
Rich or poor or hiding from the law
You know what we've got in store we are contenders
You're black, or white, Arab, Christian, Israelite


We are hiding in plain sight we are contenders


Don't bother asking for a favour
I always get all that I want


Though some are foolish we are braver


Than those who do not have a bomb
Forget the turning of the seasons
Let's escalate and never stop
And yes we've talked but for no reason
Let's start again right from the top - countdown


10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1


Got the world on a string but it ain't got that swing
You speed it up we slow it down


A frontier wilder than the West ever was
No sheriff round this outlaw town
So Superman if you're listening
Help us out you're on the team


For truth and justice, the American way
The fight for right's not what it seems - with laser beams


With gun and sword there is no reward
But we're fighting on we are contenders
We've won we've lost and we've counted up the cost
And we've evened out the scores we are contenders
You're black, or white, Arab, Christian, Israelite


We are hiding in plain sight we are contenders


No virgin birth is going to claim the earth
