It's Alright (Don't Think About It)

Ray Davies, released on Phobia, © Davray Music Ltd. 1993

.

They want your mind and your body

But they don't understand

And don't care much about it

Gotta work for your country

Society's built on concrete and money

If this room was to vanish

And the toys of man turned to civilized dust

There'd still be you and me, honey

With our history gone

But the spirit lives on

.

Build those highways, build those cars

On a planet full of scrap metal

There'd better be life on Mars

.

[Chorus:]

It's alright, it's alright

If you don't think about it

It's alright

If you don't look at it, it's alright

.

How time slips away

Live by the Good Book

That's what the wise men say

But where does it leave us

Were they right or were they wrong

Gotta have hope, gotta carry on

.

It's alright, it's alright

It's alright, it's alright

.

They want your soul and your spirit

Make them understand

These things they never can have

Gotta work for your family

A community built on trust, not money

If this town was to vanish

And the office blocks were just turned into ashes

They'd be you and me, honey

With the will to survive

And the spirit lives on

.

Build those factories

Plants and cars

On a planet so desecrated

There'd better be life on Mars

.

[Chorus]

.

How time slips away

Live by the Good Book

That's what the wise men say

But where does it leave us

Were they right or were they wrong

Gotta have hope

Gotta carry on

.

It's alright, it's alright

.
