Driven To Tears

Hello !

I was listening music and I discovered a good song ! It’s « Driven To Tears », the first protest song of The Police. Indeed, at the beginning this music was created by the group, and then Sting sang the song again. This song is about the famine in the Biafra*, in which many children died. The theme of the song is the gap between rich and poor.

The Biafra is here 🙂



How can you say that you’re not responsible?
What does it have to do with me?
What is my reaction, what should it be?
Confronted by this latest atrocity

Driven to tears

Hide my face in my hands, shame wells in my throat
My comfortable existance is reduced to a shallow meaningless party
Seems that when some innocent die
All we can offer them is a page in a some magazine
Too many cameras and not enough food
‘Cos this is what we’ve seen

Driven to tears

Protest is futile, nothing seems to get through
What’s to become of our world, who knows what to do

Driven to tears
