"When the Winds Blow" as written by Daniel Mitchell and Midge Ure....
Common people living quietly in confusion
Information's giving quite a grand illusion
Hearts are beating, keeping time to meet a deadline
Faces pressed against the pane to watch a headline

When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them fall

All our ships are sailing blindly under one sun
Sending signals, calling kindly, reaching no-one
Echoes sound the shifting air of empires calling
Hold my hand, the shifting sand of empires falling

When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them fall
Oh, we'll stand and watch them fall

We confided, then decided not to follow
All the slogans, taunts and charges, sound so hollow
With open minds across the border, we have waited
But keeping place within this race is complicated

When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them

When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call
When the winds blow I will call you
We will stand and watch them fall
Oh, we'll stand and watch them fall
