"Food for Thought", UB40
This is song is basically about starvation in a poor country. The intro says: Ivory madonna dying in the dust, Waiting for the manna coming from the west. Barren is her bosom, empty as her eyes, Death a certain harvest scattered from the skies. ivory madonna dying in the dust means giving up all hope of the virgin mary. If people cant have faith in finding food there is nothing. The manna is a miracle food. Barren is her bosom, empty as her eyes. People cant even look after thier young anymore. Death a certain harvest-this shows the great quantities of people being wiped out.

kindly taken and pasted from ' the meaning of songs'.

Or a easier why to describe it is a far more intelligent equivalent to "Do They knows It's Christmas" by Band Aid.
