Artist: Grin
Albums: A View From the Valley (1986)

Take the bite out of a tiger
And make him jump the burning hoop
When the masters get suspicious
They put the tension in a loop

Suicidal misdemeanants
Traded the burgemeisters ring
For heroic songs and metropolitan dreams
For the tired men to sing

There's a black boy killed for nothing
In a long chain of events
And all the hypocrites and profiteers they mingle with the crowd
Gathered round the monument

Look at the pigs they're on their hind legs
Just to be able to join hands
With the broken hearted people
Gathered round the monument

There's an old song that comes to mind real easy
As he's lowered like a king
Just a pawn in people's games
But then the angry men will sing

Look at the pigs they're on their hind legs
Just to be able to join hands
With the broken hearted people
Gathered round the monument
