"Sacrifice" as written by Richard Barbieri, Steven Jansen, Mick Karn and Theo Travis....
I was given as a sacrifice
To build a black man's hell an' a white man's paradise
But now that I know
It's time I've got to go, lord
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow, slow, slow
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow

I have gathered all the wealth
From all over the world
Beating chains an' shackles
Just to help them make them kings, duke and earl
But now that I know
It's time I've got to go lord
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow, slow, slow
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow

What I give is what I will take
I gave love - I won't take no wait
I say : love love love - universally
Love love love

What I give is what I will take
I gave love - I won't take no wait
I say : love love love - universally
Love love love - continually
Love love love
That is what I give
And that is what I take
