1970’s Rock Song

Stood at the mouth of the Volcano
staring down from on high ,
right into the heart of the inferno
can’t you see mankind’s troubles
can’t you hear our cry ?

There in the flames
millions of faces
choking with despair
their lives thrown on the Pyre
by Rulers who don’t care ;

the Rich and powerful do as they please
chaining millions to war.poverty,hunger and disease ,
Presidents ,Kings and bosses burning all our hopes with their greed ,
turning our dreams into ashes
as they sit back and watch us bleed ;

Stood at the mouth of the Volcano
staring down from on high ,
can’t you see mankind’s troubles
can’t you hear our cry ?
