Fire In The Darkness

Look at them
With their burdens
Common sense says stop
That's enough to break your back
But they can't stop
It's a habit that they can't drop
I love my job
Because it keeps me hanging on

Shout from the rooftops, raise the alarm
There's human beings down on factory farm
Show them a light, help them find a way out
They need a fire in the darkness now

There's mouths to feed
Work at greater speed
Push the country back again
Bring another lorryload in
Are you safe in the crowd?
Do you like being pushed around?
It's the profit margin
That's why they pack you in

Shout from the rooftops, raise the alarm
There's human beings down on factory farm
Show them a light, help them find a way out
They need a fire in the darkness now

You don't have to submit
Just step back from it
Wash your hands of it
Obvious, isn't it?
