lyrics

They Don't Want U Around
by Cary and Mary-Margaret Stratton with additional music by Mark Moulin

They don't want u around.
You'd be better off dead.
They don't want u around,
They don't want to remind — what they did and they said.

They don't want u around,
Cause u just had to be free.
So they poison your brain and leave u to die by the hand of your own.
Cause they don't want u around.

Bullet flies through the air.
Catch the wind as it flies.
Catch the life of the ones,
the innocent ones — in whom the future lies.

Bullet flies through the air,
Under a veiled guise.
It's a war of the world, but it's still controlled by the master's eyes.
Cause they don't want u around.

BRIDGE
Don't buy in, look around you'll find...
All is alive — ghetto's in your mind.

They don't want u around,
And u know that it's true.
Take the escape that they sell,
Because they know — it will separate u.

They don't want u around,
But u fit in the plan.
cause it's cheaper to die by the sword and the vile than the insurance plan.
And they don't want u around.

BRIDGE:
Don't give in, just see through.
Take the power — owned by you.

Cause we want you around.
And we all want to be free.
We want to move on,
But we want to remind of how it used to be.
And we want you around.
