Song of Choice Am Early every year the seeds are growing A D A Unseen, unheard, they lie beneath the ground Am Would you know before the leaves are showing Dm G Am That with weeds all your garden will abound. E7 If you close your eyes, stop your ears, Am E7 Hold your tongue, how can you know. Am For seeds you cannot see may not be there Dm E7 Am Seeds you cannot hear may never grow Am G Am In January you've still got the choice C D E7 You can cut the weeds before they start to bud Am C Dm If you leave them to grow high they'll silence your voice. E7 Am G Am And in December you may pay with your blood. Chorus Am E7 So close your eyes, stop your ears, Am E7 Close your mouth, take it slow. Am Let others take the lead and you bring up the rear, Dm E7 Am And later you can say you didn't know. Ev'ry day another vulture takes flight There's another danger born ev'ry morning In the darkness of your blindness the beast will learn its bite How can you fight if you can't recognise a warning? Today you may earn a living wage Tomorrow you may be on the dole Though there's millions going hungry, you needn't disengage For it's them not you, who've fallen in the hole. Today the soldiers took away one Tomorrow they may take away two While April they took away Greece But surely they will never take you? It's alright for you if you run with the pack It's alright if you agree with all they do If fascism is slowly climbing back It's not here yet, so what's it got to do with you? The weeds are all around us and they are growing It will soon be too late for the knife If you leave them on the wind that around the wind is blowing You may pay for your silence with your life. So close your eyes, stop your ears, Close your mouth, and never dare And if it happens here they'll never come for you, Because they know you really didn't care.
