The stage is set, all the actors know their lines.
It's a revolutionary act.
The stage is set, all the actors know their lines.
It's a revolutionary act of suicide.

Mother, mother please don't do this.
Mother, mother please don't do this.
Lay down your life with your child, with your child.
Mother please lay down your life.

It's a fool who thinks he's winning when he's losing.
I will lay my burden down.
It's a fool who thinks he's winning when he's losing.
I will lay my burden down, lay it down by the riverside.

Mother, mother please don't do this.
Mother, mother please don't do this.
Lay down your life with your child, with your child.
Mother please lay down your life.

Just take a drink and go to sleep.
Take our life from us, take a drink.
Just take a drink and go to sleep.
Take our life from us.
We laid it down 'cause we got tired.

Mother, mother please don't do this.
Mother, mother please don't do this.
Lay down your life with your child, with your child.
Mother please lay down your life.
Mother please lay down your life.

If you want me to be your father, I am.
And if you want me to be your brother, I am.
And if you want me to be your neighbor, I am.
And if you want me to be your savior, I am.
And if you want me to be your father, I am.
And if you want me to be your brother, I am.
And if you want me to be your neighbor, I am.
And if you want me to be your savior, I am.
And if you want me to be your father, I am.
And if you want me to be your brother, I am.
And if you want me to be your neighbor, I am.
And if you want me to be your savior, I am.
And if you want me to be your god, I...
