about

The 'pirates' (actually some of the poorest people on the planet who are forced by the sheer necessity of staying alive into doing what they do) active in the Arabian Gulf were very much in the news when this was written. We barely hear about them now, they are still there, but the world loses interest.

lyrics

Hijack a plane

We’re gonna hijack a plane we’re gonna bring it down
Not gonna land on a runway not gonna land on a map
We’re gonna hijack a plane we’re not bringing it back
We’re gonna ransom the crew we’re gonna make em sweat
Coz we wanna be you not necessarily rich
Don’t call a choice a choice when there’s a hitch

Not born with a silver spoon a knife or a fork
We knew we were losing before we knew how to talk
We’re gonna hijack a plane we’re gonna bring it down

We’ll be taking the ship and all the stuff in the hold
Can’t afford virtue when you’re hungry and cold
At the end of a chain you tend to do what you’re told
and his family love him it looks bad if he dies
we’ve done some research know what the captain is worth
it’s not stamped in your passport it’s stamped on you at birth
