The Lyrics

How many times will the people be fooled before they awake from their daze?
Yes, and how many times will they fall for the lies and consent to be treated like slaves?
And how many times will they cheer for their kings who exploit their frustration and pain?
The answer, my friend, is hiding in the shade
The answer is hiding in the shade.

How many seas can their bald eagles fly before they're all captured and drowned?
Yes, and how many towns can their singers exploit before people hear their false sounds?
And how many times will the people just cry and march passively to their graves?
The answer, my friend, is hiding in the shade
The answer is hiding in the shade.

How many years will the prisons be locked before all the people revolt?
Yes, and how many years will the poor walk the streets, their lives lacking food and all hope?
And how many years will it take till they fight the class which provides them with chains?
The answer, my friend, is hiding in the shade
The answer is hiding in the shade.
