lyrics

Hanging on a fence at 6am
That's how they found you
Buzzards fly black against the early morning sky
Circle around you
Took your money, took your clothes
They could not take your dignity
Scarecrow boy strung up upon the prairy there that night
You just wanted to be free

You're a rainbow man
Biggotry paraded like its aristocracy
You know that you're a rainbow man
And they can't harm you now
They can't hurt you now

So stands the scarecrow boy, silent in the wind
Crucified in hate crime and for what? some so- called sin
And the world they cried for you
But it's so en-vogue to hate
And help it came too late

You're a rainbow man
Biggotry paraded like its aristocracy
You know that you're a rainbow man
And they can't harm you now
You're a rainbow man
Biggotry paraded like its aristocracy
They can't hurt you now
They can't hurt you now

Ten years pass the world has changed
Learnt to tolerate
We forget the names of liberations casualties
Those who died in hate
They should hang their heads in shame
Those who still don't know you're name
But you didn't die in vain. You didn't die in vain
You're still alive in every rainbow flag that flies
And they can't hurt you now
They can't harm you now
They cant harm...

You're still alive in every rainbow flag that flies
And they can't harm you now
