Lyrics - Folk Songs
WE’RE THE ONES (IN THE SUN)

I, think of ’39 and folk just like me
Torn, from their minds their wives their homes and families

Apathy’s cruel but it’s warm in my bed
And I can do anything if I’ve the money to spend

I, think of ’69 and folk just like me
Dazed, by the lunar race, small step for a new mankind

Hold on, when was the last time we could say we were surprised?
Come on, when was the last time that we flinched deep inside?
Or tried?

I, think about my life and folk just like me
Tied, to this brave new world of hope consuming reasons for why

Hold on, when was the last time we could say we watched the sky?
Come on, when was the last time that we cared about life?
So we shy
From ourselves
And deny

Apathy rules if we give what we get
And we can buy anything except the truth and what’s dead
We think of ourselves and we’re just everyone else
We could all be our kings you know
If we see who we are

We’re the ones in the sun
