Lead Vocals:Dave Sharp
Lyrics
:

People are saying money's falling off the trees 
But I don't see nobody here with a piece 
Nobody got it, everybody want it 
Even people out there begging on the streets 
From Red Square right down to the sea 
Step down off the side-walk and you might see 
Something going on make a poor heart bleed 
Sounds like a new age world stampede
 
God save somebody 
God save somebody 
Well all through the land 
Everybody lend a hand 
God Save somebody

Broke walls, people digging through 
Skidding on the tarmac, tripping on the view 
Halfway useful
Wholeway hopeful 
Soaking their hearts in a vision of food 
Welcome west to the world excess 
Bet you halfway through some will settle for less 
With a big break sleeping rough at night 
On a stone floor like freezed ice 

God save somebody 
God save somebody 
Well all through the land 
Everybody lend a hand 
God Save somebody

Well whole place looks like a war's going on 
Flash floods and fire bombs 
A whole bunch of folk who say it ain't so 
But they're from a place nobody goes 
Shell shock and big decay 
No policies made gonna take that away 
Bells ringing out right now for the day 
They're even trying to tear down God�s Highway 

God save somebody 
You better save somebody
Well all through the land 
Everybody lend a hand 
God Save somebody

God save somebody 
God save somebody 
Well all through the land 
Everybody lend a hand 
God save somebody

(God save somebody)
God save somebody
(God save somebody)

They're even trying to tear down God�s Highway 
You better save somebody
(God save somebody)

Well the bells ringing out right now for the day
You better save somebody
(God save somebody)

Save somebody
(God save somebody)
You better save somebody
(God save somebody)

Well it sounds like a funeral
You better save somebody

Mike Peters Notes
:I remember Dave Sharp playing this to me outside Twist’s house. It was a bright summers morning and the lyrics rang so clear and true. I personally think this is Dave’s best contribution to The Alarm so far and judging by the fans reaction to this song at the ‘Greenbelt’ show I’m sure a lot of you will agree.
