    Lyrics

    I'm walking through these pastures
    I'm picking up sweet fruit
    I'm shaking hands with people
    That previously I'd shoot
    But nothing will dissuade me
    Nothing will dilute
    I want to execute
    I want to execute

    And you tend to meet a lot of scum en route
    It doesn't mean you've joined the other side
    And because I still wear shorts and my smile is oh so cute
    It doesn't mean I'll run away and hide

    To a world where the leaders finally confess
    (I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes)
    To the burning of the Stock Exchange and bombing of the press
    (I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes)

    I think the answer's yes, yes, yes, I think the answer's yes

    I'm walking through these corridors
    Where crime meets pantomime
    They're laughing and they're drinking
    On the swill of overtime
    And no-one seems to know about
    The death-wish that they've signed
    Ah, life's unkind
    Ah, life's unkind

    And they see me as a potential new recruit
    They rub their hands, slap their backs and smile
    But I still wear suspenders underneath my business suit
    So needn't worry about me for a while

    So to a world without hunger, where royalty face death
    (I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes)
    To the breaking down of barriers of North, South,
    East and West
    (I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes)

    I think the answer's yes, yes, yes, I think the answer's yes
    I think the answer's yes, yes, yes, I think the answer's yes

    And no-one seems to know about
    The death-wish that they've signed
    Ah, life's unkind
    Ah, life's unkind
    Life's unkind, life's unkind
    From poor old U2 to poor old Simple Minds
    No amnesty for murderers of poor old working class
    Rope or gas, rope or gas, rope or gas
    No amnesty for murderers of poor old working class
    Rope or gas, rope or gas
