Happy In The Homelands (bonus track)

from Blood Brother (1990) by Tom Robinson & Jakko Jakszyk

lyrics

There is red in the sky tonight
And in the aftermath of morning
Of what is wrong & what is right
Their bravery & courage
Or just platitudes for sin
I'm not sure...
Which country I am in

Did you think they'd last forever
Happy in the homelands
Would you be so righteous if you knew
How it feels to live forever
Happy in the homelands
Who could blame their anger if you do ?

Oh Lord, tell me what to do
With these feelings of frustration
And this déjà vu
If we're all in this together
With our patience wearing thin
Let's all make sure...
Which country we are in

Did you think we'd last forever
Happy in the homelands
Would you be so righteous if you knew
How it feels to live forever
Happy in the homelands
Who could blame our anger if you do ?
