Kicking in her head

What kind of times are these
No one hears, no one sees
As they drive her to her knees

Men of steel
Just stood laughing in the rain

What kind of times are these
As they drive you to your knees
They just stood laughing in the rain
The rain

How can you laugh this one away
Will you ever laugh this one away
