A Cruel Madness (Broken Voices)

Graeham Goble
January 7th, 1985 & September 1986

The enemy is ever watching you
To blow us all back to Timbuktu
There's not a thing, even a child can do
It's just a cruel madness

Ego claims the victory
The silence closes again
Dreams rain down on humanity
As we stand with our face to the wind
Prisoners taken and locked away
The trial has begun
The truth is forsaken and we cannot say
Who is the fortunate one

The enemy is ever watching you
To blow us all back to Timbuktu
There's not a thing, even a child can do
It's just a cruel madness

A cruel madness
That our kids have to live in this world as it is today
A cruel madness
You know I just want out
I wanna scream and shout
And turn it about
Sail away

Lines are drawn and numbers called
For those who must obey
Sons and daughters climb the city walls
To give their youth away
How much longer will insanity reign?
When can we go home?
Why do nations want to live this way?
In their world, all alone

The enemy (the enemy) is ever watching you (watching you)
To blow us all back to Timbuktu
There's not a thing, even a child can do
It's just a cruel madness

(Madness, Madness)

The enemy is ever watching you
To blow us all back to Timbuktu
There's not a thing, even a child can do
It's just a cruel madness

(Madness, Madness)
