north and south lyrics – clash

and so we say
we ain’t got life
don’t want a cardboard cut-out
don’t want a plastic knife

now i know time can march
with it’s charging feet
now i know words
are only cheap

it’s gonna be a burn out
all around this town
the south is up
but the north is down

there’s gonna be a killing
of a woman and a man
they trying to feed that child
without a coin in their hand

and so we say
have you no use
for eight million hands
and the power of youth

now i know time can march
with it’s chargin’ feet
now i know words
are only cheap

it’s gonna be a burn out
all around this town
the south is up
oh but the north is down

there’s gonna be a killing
of a woman and a man
trying to feed that child
without a coin in their hand
it’s gonna be a burn out

and so we say
we ain’t digging no graves
we’re digging a foundation
for a future to be made

now i know the time can march
with it’s charging feet
now i know words
are only cheap

it’s gonna be a burn out
all around this town
the south is up
oh but the north is down

there’s gonna be a killing
of a woman and a man
trying to feed that child
without a coin in their hand
it’s gonna be a burn out
