Silent Running

These are lyrics from the song "Silent Running" by Mike and the Mechanics. I thought it had some relevance to the current world situation. I apologize if someone feels this doesn't belong in the newswire.
Silent Running


Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar
By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don't believe the church and state
And everything they tell you
Believe in me, I'm with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There's a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway
Use it only in emergency
Better you should pray to God
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
Calling you, calling you

The time has come to understand the nature of the fraud and deceit that has been waged not only against America, but many countries on the planet. Don't make the mistake of thinking the fascists have your interests at stake, that could prove fatal!

I only just recently with the events of September have heard this song and found the meaning in its lyrics. This song tells of the fear that some have had and questions where in this crazy state of affairs we should look to for answers. Whenever I hear this song on the radio, I just have to stop and listen. The song is great, Mike and the Mechanics is a great band and this is a song that we can all find meaning in.

Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carring a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.
