    Invisible people with invisible hands
    Holding very obvious collection cans
    Anonymous people with anonymous jobs
    Hurry past for fear of being late for the bus

    Both will say it's not the way I intended to be
    Knowing that the other guy has all he could need
    The homeless have got all the time and all of it to share
    The workers have got all the cash and none of it to spare

    Invisible people with invisible feet
    Taxi cab potential knowing every street
    Anonymous people with anonymous cars
    Rolling up the windows as they drive on past

    If these were all your relatives then which one would you feed?
    Would the power you get from money disappear if it was free?
    Isn't it therefore obvious that in this society
    There's poverty and hunger due to other people's greed, other people's greed

    Invisible people from invisible homes
    Lost the job, their rent went up out on their own
    Anonymous people with anonymous lives
    Reliant on superiors to keep them alive

    Cos when it comes right down to it the structure is the same
    Control requires acceptance that you have to play the game
    The power of money trickles down decreasing as it goes
    And out there in the rain it would be used on food and clothes

    But social guilt the barrier to giving what is gained
    To those who have less of it, cuts the last link in the chain
    Invisibility comes from being constantly in view
    Ignorance is the passive stance of saying it can't be true - it can't be true

    Reality shapes itself around perceptions of the self
    Until we really need it we refuse to offer help
    The state that creates homelessness thrives on this attitude
    Until we smash these limitations and take a wider view
