"The emotions that are on this record are very abstract, out of focus, fragmented, its words are gray. But that is exactlywhat it should be."

"Do They Know It's Christmas" (Band Aid 20 version)

It's Christmastime
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmastime
We let in light and we banish shade
And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmastime

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime it's hard
But when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

And there won't be snow in Africa
This Christmastime
The greatest gift they'll get
This year is life
Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmastime at all

Here's to you
Raise a glass for everyone
Spare a thought this yuletide for the deprived
If the table was turned would you survive
Here's to them
Underneath that burning sun
You ain't gotta feel guilt just selfless
Give a little help to the helpless
Do they know it's Christmastime at all

Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmastime again
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
