CONTENDERS Lyrics

Artist: Heaven 17
Album: Pleasure One

We're going to stop this world from turning
We build it up you knock it down
If you go high then we'll go higher
Beyond the sky without a sound

It's gonna take a lot but we got plenty

Keep building up keep movin' round
If you use ten then we'll use twenty

They're up above and underground - all around
We've won we've lost we've counted up the cost
And we've evened out the scores we are contenders

I'm telling you so pay attention

These words of truth come from above
In God we trust and he has told me
I need you now and I'm talking love

We want a piece of what you're selling
Put up your hands and face the wall
How much it costs there is no telling
How much it costs to walk so small - and we're so tall

In truth we dare we people just don't care
We've got you running scared we are contenders
Rich or poor or hiding from the law
You know what we've got in store we are contenders
You're black, or white, Arab, Christian, Israelite

We are hiding in plain sight we are contenders

Don't bother asking for a favour
I always get all that I want

Though some are foolish we are braver

Than those who do not have a bomb
Forget the turning of the seasons
Let's escalate and never stop
And yes we've talked but for no reason
Let's start again right from the top - countdown

10 - 9 - 8 - 7 - 6 - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1

Got the world on a string but it ain't got that swing
You speed it up we slow it down

A frontier wilder than the West ever was
No sheriff round this outlaw town
So Superman if you're listening
Help us out you're on the team

For truth and justice, the American way
The fight for right's not what it seems - with laser beams

With gun and sword there is no reward
But we're fighting on we are contenders
We've won we've lost and we've counted up the cost
And we've evened out the scores we are contenders
You're black, or white, Arab, Christian, Israelite

We are hiding in plain sight we are contenders

No virgin birth is going to claim the earth
We know what you're worth we are contenders
