Victims Lyrics

Victims - The Communards

Billy sits alone and wonders

What to do and where to go

Billy grows tired every day

And meaning seems to fade away

Billy knows he's not alone

He knows he's not to blame

Others fear through ignorance

And Billy's cared to stay

Among the whispers barely spoken

Billy feels contempt indignant words from hypocrites

To them it's God's revenge

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

Billy worked with other men

To them was once a lad

 

When they learned of Billy's story

Went behind his back

Spread around the factory floor

Then Billy got the sack

Friends have washed their hands of Billy

He feels so betrayed

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

Billy's young and Billy's dying fighting every day

The few he trusts will give him strength

They will not walk away

Love will never wash its hands and never will betray

Billy can't escape the truth but he won't die alone

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

No-one to blame there's only victims

 

No-one to blame there's only victims
