Help The Millions Missing

Help The Millions Missing

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
Have you heard the news
Surely they’ve been on the radio
Looking for any clues

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
People just gone amiss
No longer turning up for work
Gone down some abyss

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
It’s not something they’d suppress
You can’t have people disappearing
Without reading it in the press

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
I heard in the hardest way
It was when M.E. came calling
I’ll never forget that day

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
I thought everyone would know
An illness like this,
Would be so hard to miss
Unless someone was making it so

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
Kids too ill for school
Some tube fed, tied to their bed
This illness is so damn cruel

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
We now display their shoes
As our way of showing, numbers are growing
There’s no more time to lose

Have you heard of the Millions Missing
It’s about time that you did
So in the month of May, we’ll have our say
We’re going to lift the lid

You’ll hear from the Millions Missing
Using energy too precious to waste
They’ll raise their voice, making some noise
So you’d better be ready and braced

You’ll hear from the Millions Missing
And the help you maybe can lend
You’ll hear the cost, of lives being lost
And charities you may wish to befriend

It’s not the choice of the Millions Missing
To be as ill as we are
Being stripped of our very being
Seeing our old lives from afar

So please when you hear the stories
Of the Millions Missing from life
Please help us raise awareness
By spreading them far and wide

Between us we may raise our profile
Rather than the current dismissing
So please make a vow, to side with us now
To end the plight of the Millions Missing.
