Somebody Elses Thunder
Somebody Else's Thunder

Bottom left hand corner page 15
Somebody's killed somebody
Someone must have seen
But nobody cares to answer
Nobody cares to say
We just read about the topless dancer
And look for the numbers
That'll make us rich some day

'cos you don't feel the sorrow
And you don't feel the pain
When it's somebody else's thunder
Somebody else's rain
No you don't feel the sorrow
And you don't feel the pain
When it's written in the small print
Time and time again

Trouble with the cross word 13 down
Scribbled on the story
About a woman drowned
I couldn't find the answer
I was searching for a word
I went back to the topless dancer
And read about something
That somebody'd overheard

Why worry, it's not an earthquake
Till the earth starts shaking
Why can't we leave speculation well alone
Is that laughter I hear
Or the windows in your glass house breaking
Who pays the bill when the devil's on the phone

Marching with their banners two by two
A peaceful demonstration
But that's no good to you
Some monetary persuasion
And let the cameras roll
Some ethnic validation
And follow it through
Till the victim is out on parole
