I know that it happened, I know the story

 

But that was years and years ago

 

Still you’re pushing and still your claiming

 

The pound of flesh you say I owe

 

 

 

Ch: We’ve already paid for it

 

We’ve already swung for it

 

We’ve already died for it

 

Why can’t you leave us alone?

 

 

 

There is no whitewash, there’s no conspiracy

 

You’re not a victim any more

 

Yes I know it’s easy to be a loser

 

When you spill acid in your sores

 

 

 

Ch: We’ve already paid for it…

 

 

 

Bring in the hard men, bring in the armoury

 

If escalation’s what you want

 

Everybody needs an enemy

 

But I don’t want to be yours

 

 

 

Ch: We’ve already paid for it…

 

 

 

(Sullivan/Morrow 1981)
