Dave McGilton: Music

The Day has Yet to Come

(Dave McGilton)
February 26, 2011
Written and Composed by Dave McGilton-copyright 2008

Written back in 2008 when the Irish government had their noses in the trough alongside gangsters,conmen and every two bit gobshite parasite out to line his or her pockets at the expense of the nation.They looted the entire country,emptied it for future generations,all with the tacit and silent approval of politicians entrusted with the welfare of the country and its citizens.Who needs an invading army when our own are destroying us from within.

The Day Has Yet To Come

 

 There are rats in the palace and wolves at the door

And all the lies they tell us just wont work no more

There’s a sign in the window, “We’re closing down today”

And all those lives get shattered

While the boss man gets away

 

Chorus:

Are we on the road to freedom?

And who will bring us home?

We’ve lost our faith in leaders

We’ll get there on our own…

 

On the street in late December she cries herself to sleep

No dreams no home no future, her face is you and me

There’s a time when every river turns into a flood

When those who can’t deliver

Get buried in the mud

 

Chorus x 1

 

On our own

On our own

We’ve lost our faith in leaders

We’ll get there on our own…

 

In the corridors of power where pockets run so deep

They’re deaf they’re dumb they’re blind and son

They don’t care for you and me…

In the street there stands a singer and he(she) sings of times to come

Of peace and love and justice

The day has yet to come

Peace and love and justice

The day has yet to come
