I'm walking through these pastures 
I'm picking up sweet fruit 
I'm shaking hands with people 
That previously I'd shoot 
But nothing will dissuade me 
Nothing will dilute 
I want to execute 
I want to execute 

And you tend to meet a lot of scum en route 
It doesn't mean you've joined the other side 
And because I still wear shorts and my smile is oh so cute 
It doesn't mean I'll run away and hide 

To a world where the leaders finally confess 
(I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes) 
To the burning of the Stock Exchange and bombing of the press 
(I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes) 

I think the answer's yes, yes, yes, I think the answer's yes 

I'm walking through these corridors 
Where crime meets pantomime 
They're laughing and they're drinking 
On the swill of overtime 
And no-one seems to know about 
The death-wish that they've signed 
Ah, life's unkind 
Ah, life's unkind 

And they see me as a potential new recruit 
They rub their hands, slap their backs and smile 
But I still wear suspenders underneath my business suit 
So needn't worry about me for a while 

So to a world without hunger, where royalty face death 
(I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes) 
To the breaking down of barriers of North, South, 
East and West 
(I think the answer's yes, I think the answer's yes) 

I think the answer's yes, yes, yes, I think the answer's yes 
I think the answer's yes, yes, yes, I think the answer's yes 

And no-one seems to know about 
The death-wish that they've signed 
Ah, life's unkind 
Ah, life's unkind 
Life's unkind, life's unkind 
From poor old U2 to poor old Simple Minds 
No amnesty for murderers of poor old working class 
Rope or gas, rope or gas, rope or gas 
No amnesty for murderers of poor old working class 
Rope or gas, rope or gas
