Lyrics
The Last of the Helpers is waiting in the wings To be tossed upon the scrap heap of our broken down world But I have a question for all peasants and kings For every man and woman, boy and girl: Will you be the Last of the Helpers? Will you carry on the work that they once did for you? Get to work, lend a hand Partner with your fellow man Every one of us must be The Last of the Helpers. All around the world, the Helpers are falling Rusting reminders of an era thats gone Deep in my heart I can hear someone calling That its time for all of us to carry on, All around the world, our buildings are crumbling Wretched reminders of the life we once knew But up from the rubble, our children are stumbling And its up to me and you to help them through Will you be the Last of the Helpers? Will you carry on the work that they once did for you? Get to work, lend a hand Partner with your fellow man Every one of us must be The Last of the Helpers. All around the world, farms turn to heather No one seems to care if there will be food to eat But you and I can make it, if we all work together Let us plow this fallow ground beneath our feet. All around the world, eager hands will labor Up from the ashes, the phoenix will rise, Everyone will understand, Everyone will help his neighbor Till the Lord returns, and splits the eastern sky. Will you be the Last of the Helpers? Will you carry on the work that they once did for you? Get to work, lend a hand Partner with your fellow man Every one of us must be The Last of the Helpers.
