Mother's Army - The Way Of The World

See the man on the street
Well he's got no tomorrow
Chasin' after a dream that slipped away
He can't find no relief
If he begs, steals or borrows
He keeps holdin' on livin' day by day

I know it's more than one man can take
Sooner or later something’s gonna break

Men bleed and children cry
But you've got your diamonds and pearls
Dead dreams and life crucified
It's just the way of the world
Just the way of the world

Fear in the eyes of the man in the ivory tower
Ridin' so high, he knows it's a long way to fall
A picture of greed and the struggle for power
It's what money can buy, not justice for all

Another goes under but who really cares?
Who ever said life would be fair?

Men bleed and children cry
But you've got your diamonds and pearls
Dead dreams and life crucified
It’s just the way of the world
Just the way of the world

Another goes under but who really cares?
Who ever said life would be fair?

Men are bleedin' and children cryin'
But you've got your diamonds and pearls
Dead dreams and life crucified

See the bleedin', hear the cryin'
All you want is diamonds and pearls
Dead dreams, life crucified
It's just the way of the world
