Mindless

This song is by Trust and appears on the album Savage (1981).

In the distance I see a cluster of flags
While all around me they're gunning down your kids
Far away I see the flags begin to fall
And I feel the hammers but the sickles not at all
Mindless beasts searching for a victim
Can't recognize the uniform
Bringing back vague memories
A once-proud people forced to flee
Czechoslovaques betrayed too
Turned to the west there is nothing new
Already death is knocking on your door
Their tanks will make your blood run cold, run cold

In the distance flags fly from the roof
And in the streets men in Jackboots
Far away I see the flags begin to fall
And I feel the hammers but the sickles not at all

Mindless beasts, well-trained guerillas
Who obey at the snap of a finger
Ideology founded on your death
Hear them sing as they prod your head
They boast about their political voice
And make you march out of fear, no choice
Keep cool, if you move they'll beat you down
If you resist, watch out for your kids
They'll burn them with napalm

Far away I see masses of flags
And around me kids spilling out their guts
Far away the flags go up in flames
Your women flee the cities screaming in pain, in pain, in flames, in flames

So face them care-free while staying aware
Invite them in to eat, to drink and be amused
At the table they remember stifled cries
Talking of the power of death and all their other lies
They're only coming for their satisfaction
To have you on your knees turning your cheek
The cruel savages, you'll spit in their face
Hold them well within' your sights, aim and never flinch

Make it so their flags will never wave again
And families can prosper without pain
So your children can run and laugh and play
The hammer's weight, the sickle's shadow far away

In the distance flags fly from the roof
And in the streets men in Jackboots
Far away the flags go up in flames
Your women flee the cities screaming in pain, in pain,
Screaming in pain, in flames, in flames, in flames
Mindless, mindless, mindless, mindless

In the distance I see a cluster of flags
While all around me they're gunning down your kids
Far away I see the flags begin to fall
And I feel the hammers but the sickles not at all
In the distance flags fly from the roof
And in the streets men in Jackboots
Far away the flags go up in flames
Your women flee the cities screaming in pain, in pain,
Screaming in pain, in flames, in flames, in flames
Mindless, mindless, mindless, mindless
