    Default Can you hear me...?

    There was a rock song in the 80's I believe, that had the continuing line," can you hear me?" in it . It was a band with a male lead and he was singing a song that had to do with his country being invaded and talked of resistance to the authorities, "swearing allegiance to the flag, any flag they offer", and the fact that he was "with the High Command", a resistance movement. The song ended with the theme that our children would someday win freedom.

    Can anyone name that song and band? Thanks and Happy New Year!

    Regards,

    Frank

    It's called "Silent Running" by Mike and The Mechanics
    (side-project of gutarist Mike Rutherford while on hiatus from the group "Genesis")

    Take the children and yourself
    And hide out in the cellar
    By now the fighting will be close at hand
    Don't believe the church and state
    And everything they tell you
    Believe in me, I'm with the high command

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    There's a gun and ammunition
    Just inside the doorway
    Use it only in emergency
    Better you should pray to God
    The Father and the Spirit
    Will guide you and protect from up here

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Swear allegiance to the flag
    Whatever flag they offer
    Never hint at what you really feel
    Teach the children quietly
    For some day sons and daughters
    Will rise up and fight while we stood still

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
    (Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
    (Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
    (Can you hear me running) hear me running?
    Calling you, calling you
    Them that can, do; them that can't... memorize Artist and Title
