Lead Vocals:Eddie Macdonald
Lyrics
:

Too young to care too old to fight
Ain't bothered about your life
Drop out far out don't go to school
Get out while the goings good
Sign up for the dole dig a hole
For your bone and moan ain't got any cash
Hedonistic man with your can
And your head of sand
Take the lie of the land

LET'S KEEP THE FLAMES OF HOPE ALIVE
And never let the fires die
Take the LIE OF THE LAND

Today don't wait don't hesitate
Get out there join a march
Join hands make plans and take a chance
On the right hand side of the road
Avoid the gang of the man named Vicious Henry
And his friend called Billy Whizz
Don't stay in the dark where the sharks
Will rip you off they're gonna tear you apart

LET'S KEEP THE FLAMES OF HOPE ALIVE
And never let the fires die
Take the LIE OF THE LAND.

We aint lying
No no no

And at home you're alone you're the people
That your parents warned you about
All your walls are adomed with protest
And you always quote the facts

LET'S KEEP THE FLAMES  ALIVE
And never let the fires die
LET'S KEEP THE FLAMES  ALIVE
And never let the fires die
Take the LIE OF THE LAND

Take the LIE OF THE LAND
I want to believe_______
Take the LIE OF THE LAND
