Frontlines Of The Hard Times

Leave the wallets and the purses and the economic crisis
While we sing a couple verses though electronic devices
For the doctors and the nurses
At the frontlines of the hard times
For the orderlies and the medics
In the middle of the night

As the world is slowing down
Let’s remember theirs is spinning
As we’re turning out the lights
The night is only just beginning
Have we always been connected ? Have we been too long out of touch?
As the play went undirected did the actors say too much?

So we return to the centre of the wheel
Thank our lucky stars we’ve got each other in this deal
So let’s sing a couple verses for the doctors and the nurses
At the frontlines of hard times getting real

Watching from a distance in slow motion
Redesigning our existence with the notion
That we’re all in this together
It’s a such radical idea
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather
Before the skies will clear

So we return to the centre of the wheel
Thank our lucky stars we’ve got each other in this deal
So let’s sing a couple verses for the doctors and the nurses
At the frontlines of hard times getting real
At the frontlines of hard times
From the night shift to the daytime
Through the dark clouds
‘Til the blue skies are revealed
