Sting, History Will Teach us Nothing, (With Lyrics)

Lyrics: If we seek solace in the prisons of the distant past Security in human systems we're told will always always last Emotions are the sail and blind faith is the mast Without the breath of real freedom we're getting nowhere fast If God is dead and the actor plays his part His words of fear will find their way to a place in your heart Without the voice of reason every faith is its own curse Without freedom from the past things can only get worse Sooner or later Our written history is a catalogue of crime The sordid and the powerful, the architects of time The mother of invention, the oppression of the mild The constant fear of scarcity, aggression as its child Sooner or later Convince an enemy, convince him that he's wrong To win a bloodless battle where victory is long A simple act of faith In reason over might To blow up his children will only prove him right History, will teach us nothing Sooner or later History, will teach us nothing Know your human rights! Be what you come here for! (Sooner or later) Sooner or later!!
