       a moment of your time

(1)
to the people we've stopped
at the buildings we've blocked.
to the people we've trapped
and the ones who shout back.
to the people who claim
abuse of their rights,
for the few minutes we dare
to snatch from their lives.

(chorus)
just this moment of your time
is how we live our lifetime.
today it's our turn to draw the lines
and we decide who crosses this time.

(2)
you can choose to force your way
through our picket lines.
you can choose not to take
the information we ply.
you can pretend
there's no good reason we're here.
or you can wake up to the issues
now you're sharing our fear.

(chorus)
just this moment of your time
is how we live our lifetime.
today it's our turn to draw the lines
and we decide who crosses this time.

(3)
to the people who say
they support us, but exclude us.
to the ones who think
we're ungrateful and mean.
to the people who tell us
how much they care BUT.
and the ones who use us
for personal gain.

(mid)
how you feel inside
is given away by your eyes.
how you feel inside
given away by the tone of your voice.
how you feel inside
it's in your patronising smile.
how you feel inside
in your cringing touch.
(aah do you think we're just too much).

(chorus)
just this moment of your time
is how we live our lifetime.
today it's our turn to draw the lines
we decide who crosses this time.
yeah WE decide who crosses this time!
