Beat The Drum (Pallas)

There is a place that has no name No sound of laughter, no children playing It's not on the map but it's there just the same The places that built the toys for the nuclear game Sascha digs the food in the snow It fills the gaps where his pension don't go He spent his life making weapons of war Times have changed They don't need him no more Beat the drum Beat the drum Since Joseph built his iron wall And America raced for the moon We wasted our breath, on the science of death It was what we were told we must do A lethal quest to show who's best What on Earth did it prove? I don't know Beat the drum Like an army You've got the voice So state your choice Beat the drum Beat it loudly You have nothing to lose Beat the drum Go your own way Just speak your mind Don't follow blindly Beat the drum Beat it proudly Every step of the way In every time and every place There are those who believe they must lead Their ambition is used as a hiding place For selfish and terrible deeds Don't let them make the same mistakes again It's their role To take control Beat the drum Like an army You've got the voice So state your choice Beat the drum Beat it loudly You have nothing to lose Beat the drum Go your own way Just speak your mind Don't follow blindly Beat the drum Beat it proudly Every step of the way Beat the drum Like an army Armed with your pride You'll turn the tide Beat the drum Beat it loudly Let them know where you stand Beat the drum Raise the standard A coloured rag Becomes your flag Beat the drum Beat it proudly Cause the world's in your hand Go on, beat the drum Go on, beat the drum Even though we know the score There's always those who'd lead us into another war Though we might hope this story's through Beware of those who claim to know what's best for you
