ARE WE NOT MEN song lyrics
words by H. G. Wells,
arranged, with some additions, by Joel Sattler

hey
it is a man
it is a man
five finger man

hey
it is a man
it is a man
come to live with us

hey
it is a man
it is a man
it must learn
must learn to live the law

hey
say the words
not to go
not go on all fours

hey
say the words
say the words
say the words

hey
not go all fours
that is the law
are we not men
that is the law

hey
not suck up drink
are we not men
that is the law

hey
thou must not eat
of fish of flesh
that is the law

hey
not claw the trees
are we not men
that is the law

hey
not chaseth men
that is the law
are we not men

hey
his is the house
the house of pain

hey
his is the hand
his is the hand
the hand that makes

hey
his is the hand
the hand that wounds
the hand that heals

hey
his is the light
the lightning flash
the deep salt sea
his are the stars
stars in the sky

hey
he is a man
five finger man
a man like me

hey
this is the law
not run on fours
are we not men

hey
though he is man
still none escape
none can escape

hey
hey he is great
hey he is good
none can escape

for every one
the want is bad
what will want
we do not know
but we shall know
what bad is had
not kill and bite
not suck the blood

it is the law
it is the law
it is the law
are we not men

not scratch the grave
not last of breath
no one is saved
no fear of death

though none escape
and all shall break
this is your God
this is the law

hey
are we not men
are we not men
are we not men
are we not men
are we not men...
