Flux of pink indians «They Lie, We Die»

Atomic electricity is just a filthy mess and waste
It makes you wonder why they bother with such risks entailed
Is it just a coincidence this atomic power makes
An energy source of uranium from which atom bombs are being made
Behind our backs they scheme and dig mine and your graves
Behind our backs they laugh as their shelters are being made
Out of sight, on the quiet, the plans are being neatly laid
While we sit wasting time in the safe ignored shade

What if soon we were all out in the sun
Dodging the fallout, trying to hide or run
We need to stop it now before they've begun
Don't wait to be asked, no questionnaire will come

They lie we die

We've left it in their bloody hands for far too long
Atomic energy is gonna finance their bomb
They think they fight wars on mine and your behalf
So let's bloody tell'em, you've got it fucking wrong

What about the people in far off remote places
They never even knew bombs exist
They'll never have the chance to say or protest
That they didn't want their lives blown to bits

They lie we die

When they crawl from their shelters they'll start it all again
It makes you wonder who are these powermad women and men?

So that in a hundred years they'll be as strong as before
But as usual, at no expense to them

It's no use saying «oh it's too late»
It's no use saying «that it will never happen»
It's no use saying «that's the way it goes»
Is it really the way you wanna go ?

They lie we die

They sigh we cry
We burn they learn
They lie we fry
They dream we scream

They lie we die

Is it really the way you wanna go?

J'adore le regard à distance, l'humour, la dérision, le regard critique de vos oeuvres. Je fais un peu la même chose à ma manière dans certaines de mes photos…

Votre travail fait réfléchir…
