Reap What You Sow

Chorus:

You reap what you sow
Yes, you reap what you sow
And don’t you think that you can get away
Your first blood has been spilt
It’s crying out this nation’s guilt
It’s about time somebody let you know
You can hide it with lies
You can remove it from your eyes
But you’re still going to reap what you sow

In China, they murder an infant
Just because this little baby was a girl
But now see what becomes
When they try to marry off their sons
You’re going to reap what you sow!

In Brazil they have found a new solution
To combat the problem of rising crime
They send out thugs with guns
To go and murder little ones
I tell you, they’re going to reap what they sow

You reap what you sow
Yes, you reap what you sow
And don’t you think that maybe you can get away
Your first blood has been spilt
It’s crying out this nation’s guilt
It’s about time somebody let you know
You can hide it with lies
You can remove it from your eyes
But you’re still going to reap what you sow

This ain’t happening in some distant nation
The blood is flowing down England’s streets
You ain’t got to look further
Than your own son and daughter
I tell you, we’re going to reap what we sow!

Fathers abandon un-named children
And a baby is no longer safe in its mother’s womb
As innocence is murdered
So our freedom can be furthered
Oh! We’re going to reap what we sow!

You see, something must change
Something needs to be said
Now that over four million lie dead
And nobody remembers
There’s no cross to mark their grave
These martyrs pro-choice
For the freedom they gave
And I want to shout ‘Murder!’
And don’t believe the lie
For us to have safe sex
These children must die!

Steve G: “This song addresses a certain smugeness that these things could not happen in the UK. We think about the Germans that tried to pretend that the death camp outside their town was not there.

“People say, “Not here, not on my watch”

People say, “Not here, not on my watch”, but it has happened, and continues to do so. A genocide. Six million murdered babies. By murdered I mean would still be alive to day if nobody had stepped in to stop them being born. They were alive – and someone stopped their life.”
