lyrics

Spectator first on the scene,
Quick grab me a paper!
What he says makes no sense at all.
But someday, it just might
It just might!

Words get stronger in written form.
They just might last, they just might.
People of the town saw it different.
Typhoons battle ships at night.
Ships at night!

Dictator, last on the scene,
Pulled up his black boots tight.
Stuffing his fortune into duffel bags.
You can’t trust people.
And that ain’t right
That ain’t right!

Helicopters falling from the clouds
Blast the morning light bright.
Legions of Liberation
Missed by seconds
The chance to make things right
To make things right!

As every tin-pan tyrant never learns,
The capital falls without a fight
But when those dreams of posterity set in,
Everyone’s got him in their sights.
In their sites!
