Playing With Our Lives (Angry Blue Planet Track 2)


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
The second track for my much-delayed RPM challenge project.

This one is a little more in my 80s pop wheelhouse.

The "album" is ten songs, with the loose theme of how pissed off I am about a lot of things going on in the world today. It's mostly anger, but there some optimism too. The idea for the title "Angry Blue Planet" came recently while watching the movie "Angry Red Planet" - a wonder 50s sci-fi B movie which has no other relation to any of the music than I thought a play on the title would be cool.

I plan to post these fairly rapidly and have them all up in a day or two.

Hope you enjoy!

Playing With Our Lives

©2018 Joseph Gurner


There was a time when we
found ourselves innocent
Lying out in the sun
lying out in the sun

That time is over now
taken away from us
by those who never
played the game

Playing with our lives
But we know it’s not a game
Make them understand
Our pain
Our pain

There was a time when we
had something more to dream
reaching our hands
up to the sky

That time is over now
gone with our innocence
taken by those who
control the game

Playing with our lives
But we know it’s not a game
Make them understand
Our pain
Our pain

Playing with our lives
But we know it’s not a game
Make them understand
Our pain
Our pain

Break

Playing with our lives
But we know it’s not a game
Make them understand
Our pain
Our pain









There was a time when we
found ourselves helpless
wandering alone
in the dark

That time is over now
We’re moving to the light
and we will win
win the game


Can’t we see
everything we need to be
Can’t we fly
away

Can’t we see
everything we need to be
Spreading out our wings
to fly
to fly

Playing with our lives
But we know it’s not a game
Make them understand
Our pain
Our pain
