A declaration of independence, the other person has cleared Understand the perspective, get the directive, and realise our fears We are simply trying to connect nowadays, but does anybody want to know? I'm finding it hard, putting feelings into words, another chapter remains unwrote They say, we are standing firmly in the rain, simply waiting for it to stop They said that we should build new umbrellas because we are stuck in our own rut I say, blow away the rain clouds, for the new horizon is crystal clear Its took sometime, but we're on the right track - now where do we go from here? Sick and tired of worthless statements, pissed off with the same old songs You stuff your moral rule book, of what's allowed, what's right and wrong Oh yes, there's those who only criticise yet offer nothing new, solutions? Ideas? No, just rake up shit what a clever thing to do We must strive on for what we know is right We know all too well there's no end in sight But human nature is still on our side As the politicians fall into landslide We're out on the street, feeling the beat Of the hearts in anger at the upper crust elite Who don't hear us scream or beg for a halt Or when we weep over what their society aborts 1981-President Reagan and the Pope face assassins' bullets and escape with their lives. But in Cairo, Sadat dies in a hail of automatic fire, from Brixton to Belfast riots rage and fires burn. The royal wedding of Prince Charles is celebrated. In America, the skies roar as Columbia the first space shuttle blasts off but as winter descends, so does the chilling news of martial law in Poland. 1982-Argentina invades Falklands. Speilberg captures our imaginations. Unemployment rises above three million, and with the threat of cruise missiles, twenty thousand women go to war to safeguard peace. Britain gets its fourth TV station; Princess Diana gives us a royal heir. The IRA bring horror to Hyde Park. Breshnev dies in Russia and Israel invades Lebanon. 1983-As protestors get into their stride at Greenham, Ronald Reagan promises to make Star Wars a frightening reality. Back on earth, the Soviets admit to shooting down a Korean Airliner. Maggie Thatcher triumphs again and America's first woman astronaut is in space. For Grenada it's an American invasion. 1984-After twelve weeks the striking miners still battle on and in Brighton the PM and cabinet narrowly escape death as an IRA bomb rips through the Grand Hotel. Yvonne Fletcher is gunned down and her murderer flies away a free man. Rajiv Gandhi fights to save his country after the assassination
