Love on Skype; Hatred and Hype

You talk of life when you can show our love is strong You talk of life when you can show them they were wrong Beneath the sun, across the turquoise sea You sit in darkened room, your hand stretched out towards me You hear my voice, you see my face but can’t touch me While men of power preach hatred, terror, fear Of godly people, immigrants and queers You search the net, the world, your heart to make them see Wonderin’ how the fuck to keep on living without me

I talk of life when I can show our love is strong I talk of life when I can show them they were wrong Across the mountains beneath a sky of icy blue I sit in darkened room, my hand stretched out towards you I hear your voice, I see your face but can’t touch you While so-called ‘friends’ preach mistrust, rumours, fear The crap-filled media fairy tales they hear I search the net, the world, to change their point of view Wonderin’ how the fuck to keep on living without you

We live across a border, lines on maps Bureaucracy; ‘the fortress’ sets our traps Shored up by dollars, power wars and hate Love becomes a checklist they can rate; Meanwhile they say that love can conquer all

Well maybe that was true ‘til someone made the call That we must bow before the war on terror And turn our backs on love; their fatal error.
