The Secrets Out
The Secrets Out

Out of the blue
Standing silently, we watched the tables turn
The powerful few
Laying wide eyed at the feet of children
It?s over to you
Read instructions written clearly to inform
Let?s see how you do
We?ve a feeling that it must get better

It must be a dream
Read the circulated memo from the floor
Somebody scream
And our focus group will note the outcome
We?ll act as a team
Though our fundamental stance will juxtapose
They?ll know what we mean
When we tell them that it?s all for their own good, it?s understood.

Children, just tell them
It?s easy, so easy
Sort it out
Turn things about
The secret?s out

We?ll take it from here
Said the children there?s so much we need to do
It?s perfectly clear
That a new approach is all that?s needed
We?ve got an idea
And it ?s not so hard so you can follow too
Just open your ears
And in time maybe your heart will follow on, follow on


After a while
Problems showed themselves for what they really were
The top of the pile
Showed an empathy for those below them
Slowly the smile
Crept across the faces frozen with a frown
The trickiest mile
Had been travelled and the journey had begun, their work was done

Sort it out
Turn things about
The secret?s out
