Guilty

Ray Davies, released on single, © Dabe Music 1985

.

Stand before your maker, it will make or break you

While living for today

I know you, you are a faker, don't try me I will take you

While living for today

.

Don't stand in the light for the truth it will blind you

Secure in your offices of self-gratification

Deaf to the cries of the innocent strangers you buried

Don't look over your shoulder for the past is still burning

Or wriggle and squirm for your soul has forgotten

Controlling the man that through greed has brought misery to the world

.

Guilty until you're proven innocent

I'm sorry, but you've sealed your own fate

Guilty until you're proven innocent

Guilty because you looked/turned away

.

Power manipulators, conspirators, dictators

Drive the people underground

But we'll rise up through the ashes,

To stand where light can find us

In every nation, every land

.

You buy and you sell with no thought for the future

Controlling the masses in true business like fashion

TV, the media, lies and deception blinding us

.
