Lyrics
:

"It's called Let's Keep The Flames 
Of Hope Alive, Never Let The Fires Die
Cause If They Should Die 
There'll Be No Light Left In This Land
Take A Lie Of The Land, Dave"

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 ain't logging

At home you're alone you're the people
That your parents warned you about
And all your walls are adomed with protest
And you always quote the.........
LET'S KEEP THE FLAMES OF HOPE ALIVE
And never let the fires die
We must not let them die
LET'S KEEP THE FLAMES OF HOPE ALIVE
And never forget that if the fires die
There'll be no light in this land
Take a LIE OF THE LAND
Take the lie, take the lie, take the lie
Take the LIE OF THE LAND
Take the lie
Take the LIE OF THE LAND
Take the lie, take the lie, take the lie
Take the LIE OF THE LAND
Keep the flames of hope alive
