On the Run – Written Between Tuesday 15th February 1994 and November 1994 (Aged 18/19)

On the Run

all we can do is run
the children are on the run
the people are on the run
society is breaking
the end has begun
so everyone starts taking
help the young
it is never much fun
give us time,
and we might work it out
let’s get around to talking
it is no good to scream and shout
utopia is always on my mind
just think,
we may not have much time

James Garratt – 1994
