Grenfell lyrics.

Verse 1

The second class citizen gets all the blame
The second class citizen you can’t even name
Holy in the high rise, tied to the stake
Locked in by fire, they needed escape.

Bridge

There was a time when the classes all mixed
But daddy didn’t like it so he got it fixed.
You can’t see the brick but the walls always there
The poor are the losers, the rich ones don’t care.

Chorus

Scenes that no-one should witness,
Scenes that no-one should see.
The grave is already in your garden
The torch is shining on your street.

Verses

2

A second class citizen in a Kensington street
A second class citizen they don’t want to meet
As they were burning, did you stand and watch
Is all that you were thinking is what will be the cost.

3

A second class citizen, who bangs on your door
A second class citizen, who muddies your floor
Asking for justice, their right to be heard
You pulled down your shutters, you locked up your door.

4.

Second class citizens, they cost too much cash
Second class citizens, consigned to the past,
You deny their existance, but we’re all the same,
But you close both your eyes so you can’t see their pain.

5.

An upper class citizen has dinner with a duke
An upper class citizen wants money for a nuke
You whitwash it over, but the anger is true
You let the poor suffer because what can they do?

Not for Sale in the USA, lyrics

1.

This sun, this rain, this river; this field, this flower, this hay
This blue, this green, this purple; this white, this green, this grey
This baby, this mother, this father; this cat, this dog, this stray
Not of them are available for sale in the USA

Chorus
Not for sale, in the USA, not for sale in the USA

2.
This bridge, this house, this painting; this heart, this soul, this mind
This road, this street, this mountain; this family ties that bind
This school, this child, this teacher; this cup, this spoon, this tray
Non of them are available for sale in the USA

Chorus

3.
This farm, this barn, this tractor; this muscle, this set, these tears
These sheep, this cow, this chicken; these hopes, these dreams, these fears,
This sport, this thought, this culture; this job, this work, this play
No of them are available for sale in the USA

Chorus

The Refugee Crisis

1.

Ordinary people who don’t have a life
Ordinary people who don’t have a voice
Leaving Iraq, leaving Iran
Leaving Syria, Afganistan

Chorus
And they’re coming to Europe
And they’re coming to Europe

2.
Ordinary people who cross land and sea
Ordinary people who want to be free
Escaping guns, escaping bombs
Bread and water, freedom songs

3.
700 people The frightened refugee
700 people who drown in the sea
Fanily photos, left them behind
Fleeing gunmen, step on a mine

Chorus

4.
Ordinary people, cannot reach their goal
Ordinary people, left in the cold
Water cannon, border control
Those politicians don’t have a soul

Chorus

Lyrics

I want to heal you, to take away the pain
I want to heal you, you’ll be happy once again
I love you when you’re happy, I hate it when you’re sad
I hope you will recover from the problems that you’ve had
I want to heal you and I hope you want to heal me too

2.
I want to heal you, to get you on your feet
I want to heal you so you can take your rightful seat
I’m glad when you are working, trying to do your best
I hate it when they hurt you and put you to the treat
I want to heal you and I hope you want to heal me too

3.
I want to heal you, to help you put things right
I want to heal you, to help you win the fight
I love you when you’re free and looking at the sky
I hate it when you’re broken without your human right
I want to heal you and I hope you want to heal me too

Lyrics to Love Rings Twice

1.
Love rings twice and the sky turns blue
The birds start singing and the sun shines through.

2.
Love rings twice and rainbows appear
The oceans rest and the mists disappear.

3.
Love rings twice gives you time to rise
Gives you butterflies and fire in your eyes.

4.
Love rings twice and the cactus buds
The horizon glows and it all turns to love.

Chorus

When love has lost it’s eaning, well I lose my meaning too
What I mean is there’s no meaning, no meaning without loveing you
