lyrics

How could it be so, how could it be so
How could it be so that they’re singing these songs
Where the ground does not grow
And the factories close
On the points of the globe not well known for their niceties
Over and over, a story unfolding
The music most wanted by the people most not
With just a place to go, a place to go
A place to go and a place to leave

Send to them a pied piper
Send him to find them
Soon they will stream in to the cities and towns
Bringing with them their daughters and tales of misfortune
Their widows and orphans all set to a song
If you catch them a-singing
It’s like the light streaming
On a corner of woods with the branch overturned
See the animals stream, their conditions revealed
Hear the noises they make as they scatter for miles
Give them a place to go, a place to go
A place to go and a place to leave
