History

on Rat Music for Rat People, Vol. 2 (1984)

And we all talk about world peace but then war comes again
Dr. King and the Kennedys, murder takes another friend
Korea, 'Nam, El Salvador, the name is never the same
Laser guns and germ warfare, new toys but the same old game

History repeats itself
History repeats itself
History repeats itself
History repeats itself

And people are starving everyday, the sick are going uncured
While Mr. Big's huge bank account lets him rest self-assured
The 1920s and the 1950s no one was singin' the blues
Depression came and took it away, you're always paying dues

History repeats itself
History repeats itself
History repeats itself
History repeats itself

And punk rock's not so far removed from Little Richard or the early Stones
Look around and see how much and just how little we've grown
Sometimes the scene's so very good, sometimes there's nothing to do
The past's a circle going round and round, the future's up to you

History the future's up to you
History the future's up to you
History the future's up to you
History the future's up to you
History the future's up to you
History the future's up to you
History the future's up to you
History the future's up to you
