lyrics

CROSSING THE RUBICON (Lyrics by Lewis)

"Hark the heralds, Caesar has returned"
2000 years and we still haven't learned
to see through the tricks and the lies
when greed is justified with computations of distress
when human lives are measured in the mandates of the press
and profit brooks no compromise
we just shut our eyes

Turn on the lights, cause darkness is falling on us again

Turn on the lights and see that this is not living at all
Hold up the mirror and see if we're breathing at all
Get on your knees and pray that you're worth saving at all

And we pretend
that we are guiltless of the means to this end
our prosperity's bought with the sword
they trample human rights to serve our comfort overseas
reboot our economy with hunger and disease
of people we're taught to ignore

Turn on the lights, cause darkness is falling on us again

Turn on the lights and see that this is not living at all
Hold up the mirror and see if we're breathing at all
Get on your knees and pray that you're worth saving at all

All must work to break the chain
Emperors will break their word and cross the river
All must work to break the chain
Emperors will cross the river
