Well you may take my money
You may turn off my microphone
But you can't steal
What you can't feel
Can't stop the sun from shining
Down and down and down

And you may think you control things
But there'll be more just like me
Who won't give in
Who'll rise again
Can't stop the world from turning
'Round and 'round and 'round

Hey mister business man
Be sure to wash your hands
Be careful where you stand
'Cause life goes on and on and on

And you may think it's all over
But there'll be more just like me
Who won't give in
Who'll rise again
Can't stop a man from dreaming
On and on and on

    General Commentthis is a great and highly under-rated song. it's also incredible live! to me, this song runs along the same theme as the entire Last DJ album. this song is simply about "the man" keeping us down. the song was written by an artist from that standpoint but it applies to all of us who feel trapped and unappreciated.
