Blind Youth
first demo version (a.k.a. Optimistic Anthem):
"No future", they say
But must it be that way?
Now is calling
The city is human
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
We've had it easy, we should be glad
High-rise living's not so bad
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
Dehumanisation is such a big word
It's been around since Richard III
Dehumanisation - it's easy to say
But if you're not a hermit, well then the city's OK
"No future", they say
But must it be that way?
Now is calling
The city is human
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
Blind youth, take hope
You're no Joe Soap
Your time is due
Big fun come soon
