"And Then..." as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
Let's take a map of the world
Tear it into pieces
All of the boys and the girls
Will see how easy it is

[Chorus]
To put it all down and start again
From the top to the bottom, and then
I'll have faith, or I prefer
To think that things couldn't turn out worse

All that we need at the start's
Universal revolution (that's all)
And if we trust in our hearts
We'll find the solution's

[Chorus]

Took a plane across the world
Got in a car
And when I reached my destination
I hadn't gone far

Let's take the whole of the world
The mountains and the sand
Let all the boys and the girls
Shape it in their hands

[Chorus]

    General CommentIt is a song about how every one of us can influence the world and change it for the better. It can't get worse, anyway!

    Environmental issues here, perchance?

    General CommentNot Environmental Issues - that line is a prequel to People are people.

    This is an awesome song - Take a map and tear it to pieces and let the kids put it back together - they just do it without regard to borders or cultures or religions.

    I think it is about the youth taking over and remaking the world - Could it get any worse? (I guess we know the answer to that now)
