Shake The Hand lyrics
by Brian Cadd and Glenn Shorrock
Smoke from careless fires burning,
circles slowly round the world,
we all watch but no one's learning,
the play goes on, the scene is set,
for every boy and girl
who will control the future,
so don't try to leave the stage,
why don't you turn around and face me ?
I wanna shake your hand ...
Shake the hand of the man
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land,
shake the hand of the man
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land.
Air we no longer take for granted,
and there's holes punched in the sky,
a naked sun burns all we've planted,
God only knows that's all we need,
another way to die,
are we so tiered of living,
that we've let you go this far ?
Why don't you turn around and face me ?
I wanna shake your hand ...
Shake the hand of the man
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land,
there's a dram to be seen
in a world that is clean,
there's a dream to be seen when it's clean,
shake the hand of the man,
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land.
We've seen you on the news,
and we know just who you are,
pay attention friend, you can only run so far ...
- guitar solo -
Just keep on runnin' ...
Why don't you turn around and face me ?
I wanna shake your hand ...
Shake the hand of the man
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land,
there's a dream to be seen
in a world that is clean,
there's a dream to be seen when it's clean,
try to change your mind
'cause you can't live a lie
if you can't change your mind 'bye bye.'
shake the hand of the man,
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land,
shake the hand of the man,
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land, no no
shake the hand of the man,
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land,
shake the hand of the man,
from the land if you can,
shake the hand of the man from the land.
