Give Us A Break

Have you ever cried out with your face up to the sky
There's been a mix-up, there's been a mix-up
Here we stand with open eyes
These changing goals can save our lives
Believe it, you best believe it.

You gotta give us a break
How much more can we take?
You gotta give us a break
How much more can I take?

We are reaching out our hands to catch a bomb before it lands
And kills us, it's taken long enough.
Cause so much time in history have taught us we can't fight for peace
It's crazy, ah, it's really crazy.

You gotta give us a break
How much more can we take?
You gotta give us a break
How much can this world take?

Tell me just how many tellin' friends
It takes to make it cool the plan of future
Where we can grow.
You Know you're doing us no favours
In thes game of scare the neighbours
Cause they're closer than we know.

What would I be like without this threat to me in mind
And I remind it a hundred times a day.
There's so much left in this old world
And baby, with your tummy full of babies, Oh Baby.

Give us a break
Please for someone elses's sake
You gotta give us a break
How much more can I take?

Tell me how much more can we take
How much more.....
