White China [Special Mix]
by Ultravox



When pale turns to pink
With a soft unnerving ease
And all you've built around
May just tumble to the ground

We stand or fall
With your future in another's hands
We stand or fall
When your life is not your own

When white turns to red
In the not too distant days
Will force and misery
Be the life you have to lead?

We stand or fall
With your children in another's world
We stand or fall
When your town is not your own

[Chorus]

White China
White China

When crimson takes a hold
When the lights go down on all you've ever known
When all you'll ever do
Is worked out for you

We stand or fall
When the thoughts you have are not your own
We stand or fall
When the freedom slips away

[Chorus: x 3]
