Bullet And The Pen

picture yourself in a different place
with a different name and a different face
in a different country under different skies
looking’ at the world through different eyes
and you see your future doomed to be
victim to the violence of a cycle of poverty
with only one way through
tell me what would you do
tell me what would you do

the bullet and the pen
they fight for the one with the other one
the bullet and the pen
they fight for the right till the war is one
it’s true
so tell me what would you do

you see the landlord’s palace and the house of pain
where the money and the muscle and the gunshots reign
and the politics play their puppet creed
to make so may good people bleed
see the generals with their shiny braids
and the polished jack boots promenade
faceless thugs in plain view
tell me what would you do
tell me what would you do

the bullet and the pen
they fight for the one with the other one
the bullet and the pen
they fight for the right till the war is one
it’s true
so tell me what would you do

tell me would you stand and fight
for such a basic human right
the right to read the printed page
the right to die of old age
when the secret of the world unlocks
and the lid flies off Pandora’s box
the future will be in plain view
so tell me what will you do
tell me what will you do

the bullet and the pen
they fight for the one with the other one
the bullet and the pen
they fight for the right till the war is one
it’s true
so tell me what would you do
