Lyrics

No Wishes, No Prayers

(Brian Goble)
No Wishes, No Prayers, 1982

You’ve got control of your own destiny
No wishes, no prayers
It’s got to be your own responsibility

No invisible guardians
No wishes, no prayers
You’ve got to dig your head out from the bloody sand

One by one in the street
Realizing they don’t want defeat
They shout defiance at the ritual sheep

A million wars in the name of some god
No wishes, no prayers
Superstition wastes the dawning of a better day

Missionaries teaching god to the savage mind
No wishes, no prayers
So now they know to hate satan and live a life of fear

One by one in the street
Realizing they don’t want defeat
They shout defiance at the ritual sheep

Learning to see just what’s right
For some sanity they now must fight
Once you’ve seen what could be, there’s no turning back
There’s no turning back
Once you’ve seen what could be, there’s no turning back

A new idea finally sees its time
No wishes, no prayers
Still attached to the blackmailers of yesterday

Now the question is a race against time
No wishes, no prayers
To fight the ignorance that’s in our way

One by one in the street
Realizing they don’t want defeat
They shout defiance at the ritual sheep

Learning to see just what’s right
For some sanity they now must fight
Once you’ve seen what could be, there’s no turning back

No wishes, no prayers
No wishes, no prayers
No wishes, no prayers
No wishes, no prayers
