STING lyrics : "We Work The Black Seam"


This place has changed for good
Your economic theory said it would

It's hard for us to understand
We can't give up our jobs the way we should
Our blood has stained the coal

We tunneled deep inside the nation's soul
We matter more than pounds and pence
Your economic theory makes no sense


One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage

They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean

Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together


The seam lies underground
Three million years of pressure packed it down

We walk through ancient forest lands
And light a thousand cities with our hands
Your dark satanic mills

Have made redundant all our mining skills
You can't exchange a six inch band
For all the poisoned streams in###berland


One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage

They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean

Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together


Our conscious lives run deep
You cling onto your mountain while we sleep

This way of life is part of me
The is no price so only let me be
And should the children weep

The turning world will sing their souls to sleep
When you have sunk without a trace
The universe will suck me into place


One day in a nuclear age
They may understand our rage

They build machines that they can't control
And bury the waste in a great big hole
Power was to become cheap and clean

Grimy faces were never seen
But deadly for twelve thousand years is carbon fourteen
We work the black seam together
