lyrics

You can't fight fire with fire,
the answer to hate ain't more hate
and you can't love thy neighbour
and kill 'em in the name of faith,
that don't make sense at all.
So tell me why do we keep on?
You say this party must have the answer,
a few year later and nothing's changed.
So you vote for the opposition,
a few years down the line
you do it all again.
So tell me why do we keep on?

Chorus
Hurting ourselves, beating ourselves,
thinking that we're freeing ourselves,
selling ourselves, losing ourselves,
why do we keep on?
Killing ourselves, fooling ourselves,
pretending that we're ruling ourselves,
stopping ourselves from being ourselves,
why do we keep on...Doing it all wrong?

People are slaving for next to nothing
making the things we're buying
feeling grateful just to be living
but to me that ain't living at all
I don't understand this supply and this demand.
Why do we keep on?
All everybody wants is freedom.
We're told that money is the only way.
We're free to chose how we serve our master
but to me that ain't freedom of all.
Fear of change is our only chain,
so people why do we keep on?

Chorus:
Hurting ourselves, beating ourselves,
thinking that we're freeing ourselves,
selling ourselves, losing ourselves,
why do we keep on?
Killing ourselves, fooling ourselves,
pretending that we're ruling ourselves,
stopping ourselves from being ourselves,
why do we keep on...Doing it all wrong?

about

Kane Williams UK

Grew up in the 70's & 80's listening to an eclectic mix of stuff on the radio and 50's and 60's music that my mum would play.

I soon found a love of anything with a strong groove and soul and became a B-Boy. I always sang a bit, but I made US East Coast inspired rap music on the unlikely East Coast of the UK.

Returning to funk and soul, I inch closer to creating the sounds I hear in my head.
