Liner Notes: 

Thinking of those who are victims of political power

Lyrics: 

V1
they don’t need more trials
they don’t need more taxing
tribulations

they don’t need more abuse
they don’t need more angry
accusations

C
no they don’t need more...
more hateful top down
inhumane rules
no they don’t need more...
more treatment like puppets of
political views

V2
they don’t need more challenges
they don’t need more caustic
confrontations

they don’t need more disgrace
they don’t need more disruptive
deportations

C
no they don’t need more...
more hateful top down
inhumane rules
no they don’t need more...
more treatment like puppets of
political views

B
they deserve empathy
and compassion
they deserve dignity
and respectful actions
not political rhetoric
and racist reactions

C
no they don’t need more...
more hateful top down
inhumane rules
no they don’t need more...
more treatment like puppets of
political views

hey hey leaders and chiefs
I’m talking to you

Wonderfully clear protest. In a few words you have said it all and I agree. Nice write

Yes a good protest song! Politicians often act weak to try and look strong.

Ooh, ooh - I don't always roll with political tunes, but this is a goon 'un! I was reminded a bit of Spirits in the Material World. Sting always had a way with incorporating sociopolitical tunes that were palatable and enjoyable and meaningful. This ranks up there just like that!

What @cts said...
I like how the lyrics are globally applicable for all types of abuse of political power.
