Gojam Province 1968 lyrics

Running like a band of angry schoolboysUp and down the well-lit streets todayBashing in the heads of tax collectors
Anybody else who's in our wayBathing in the sunlight that's our birthright
Waiting for someone to set the scene
Last time he came to town a few stray coins came raining down
We scrambled in the dirt for them
Like ants around the queen

We take aim at the dawning day
And we shoot
Starving to death
Starving to death for the low-hanging fruit

Then all at once comes the motorcade
Slow and steady down the beaten track
And as we're bashing out the windows of the limo
We notice there's nobody in the back

And a helicopter lands atop the palace
The royal guard assembles at the gate
The country's gonna burn and we'll still have to wait our turn
Last among contenders of the super-featherweights

We take aim at the dawning day
And we shoot
Starving to death
Starving to death for the low-hanging fruit
