BORN CRYING
Lyrics by Anthony Donnelly, © 2011

You’re born crying, and you die dying
I’m just tired, and sick of all the lying
Lies… lies… lies… lies…
The babies crying, the people dying
And all the while politicians lying
Lies… lies… lies… lies
All I wanna hear is the truth
Is that too much to ask for?
Is that too much to die for?
Is that too much to cry for?
The Truth!

Soldiers sent to fight a banker’s war
To balance the books, to settle a score
Our children bleed, and cry, and die
While they smoke, and drink, and whore
I don’t wanna fight any more
I don’t wanna fight any more
All I want is the truth
Is that too much to ask for?
Is that too much to die for?
Is that too much to cry for?
The Truth!

Sheep-people line our streets,
Looking for something to eat
Cheat… cheat… cheat… cheat…
A Welfare check in their pocket,
But designer shoes on their feet
Their greedy eyes don’t miss a beat
They’re part of the deceit
Cheat… cheat… cheat… cheat…
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
All I want is the truth
Is that too much to ask for?
Is that too much to die for?
Is that too much to cry for?
The Truth!

We’re born crying, and we die dying
I’m just tired and sick of trying
Bye… bye… bye… bye…
There’s no money to buy what they’re buying
We’re broke and we ain’t lying
Lies… lies… lies… lies…
All I want is the truth
Just a little more truth
Won’t you give me the truth
Why won’t you give us the truth:

We’re born dying.
The Truth.
