Where will you go, when the sirens blow?
Will you run helter-skelter, in search of a shelter
Or will you lie low?
Will you sit there clutching at your lucky charm
Or pray to your god to keep you from harm?
Maybe you'll believe it's just another false alarm
There's a world in action all around us
World in action for all to see
You'd better hide behind your religion
Is there a future for you or for me?
The devil's broken out, he's breaking deals
Disregard law and order, and head for the border
To hide in them hills
Will you sit there clutching at the final straw
Hoping that your ticket's in the final draw
If you read between the lines you'll discover there's a fatal flaw
There's a world in action all around us
World in action for all to see
You'd better hide behind your religion
Is there a future, is there a future?
World in action, world in action
And the leaders in the backroom are counting up the toll
It's defend or attack, no turning back
'Till it's out of control
Will you turn away and wash your hands
Or stand there shaking with your head in the sands?
Or leave it to the people who pretend they understand
There's a world in action all around us
World in action for all to see
You'd better hide behind your religion
Is there a future for you or for me?
World in action all around us
World in action for all to see
You'd better hide behind your religion
Is there a future, is there a future?
World in action all around us
World in action for all to see
You'd better hide behind your religion
Is there a future for you or for me?
World in action
