"Kansas city milkman" as written by Mark King, Michael David Lindup, Wally Badarou and Philip Gould....
Born in this place
You only see so far
Hear what we say

If we put the truth in your hands
Would you really like to know
Kansas city milkman

A row of houses
Through the dawn
A sleeping city
Where I was born
I hear laughter
In the early light
Outside the playground
Were I learned to fight

Born in this place
You only see so far
Hear what we say

If we put the truth in your hands
Would you really like to know
Kansas city milkman

I read the papers
Every word
My only access
To the outside world
Yeah ... survival
That's my game
Just a common man
In that there is no shame ... is there? ...

Too much talking
Information ... in the hands of the few
All the talking
Dis-information ... that we take for the truth

Born in this place
You only see so far
Hear what we say

The world is a stage
And we know just who you are
What part do you play?

If we put the truth in your hands
Would you really like to know
Kansas city milkman

    General CommentMy favorite Level42 song.
    This song is about the question whether what the media and government is the whole truth, and whether we want to know the truth about whats happening in the rest of the world.
    The 'Kansas city milkman' is the average (not too bright) person who reads and believes what he reads in the newspapers without filtering out the questionable bits.
