No Man´s Land

They are planning a big fat event. They are going to go out today.
But they never held no guitar in their hand so they never never know.
They are superstars in their own mind and are going to go out today.
Humanity walks a few steps behind, far far away.

To a conference without any sense they are going to go out today
and they hide behind an eight mile fence for they´re very, very scared.
But it´s nice to meet and drink and dine. They are going to go out today.
Problems may be solved another time far, far away.

Far away in no man´s land, far away in no man´s land,
far away in no man´s land, far far away.

People gathering from different nations. They are going to go out today
to show the world with their demonstration that someone really cares.
But what seems to be a good idea when you´re going to go out today
turns into the wish you´d rather be far, far away.

Once they were comrades but they have changed their mind and they are going to go out today.
No longer think, discuss or march in the line. They´ve come for something else.
Fuck those black hooded hools who are going to go out today!
They´ve left all political rules far, far away,

Far away in no man´s land...

And the coppers sneak around. They are going to go out today
to watch the sea and earth and solid ground. They´ve thought of everything.
With truncheons, water cannons and tear gas they are going to go out today.
It´s a cunning plan so they can rest far, far away.

They even got undercover men who are going to go out today.
But whatever they have carefully planned they are one step behind.
So the captain says, “It´s better to bat when  you´re going to go out today!
Any need to tell the good from the bad is far, far away,

Far away in no man´s land...”

Of the people down in Africa no one´s going to go out today
and the glaciers and the arctica will melt and seas will rise.
Of the hungry and the weak and the poor no one´s going to go out today
for they are all so sure and very sure far, far away.

There´s a small planet in a lonely space who´s not going to go out today.
Of green and blue, a lovely place now wasted in the heat.
What lies destroyed now once gave life to all when you´re going to go out today,
Some day some better race may recall far, far away,

Far away in no man´s land...
