Friend
they're gonna take you away
into a world full of their hurt and dismay
tell you you're wrong and teach you how to pray
to be just another name in their dossier

We'll live by our paradigm
we'll walk the line
dance in the moonshine
of our ancient bloodline

You're gonna turn their heads
raise the minds of their dead
teach the principled and well-read
that they're fools believing what was said

Their eyes will be bagged and black
from the dreams that they lack
because their nightmares make them crack
into a demented mumbling wrecks

They'll teach you their 'isms
to wear silk instead of denim
to walk the talk without any rhythm
give you reasons for their latest symptom

I'll call you queen of queens
just as it becomes too obscene
we'll remember who we've been
and throw a sandal in their machine

We own the dark of night
they beg for our light
so they can re-write
all their hate and spite

We'll live by our paradigm
we'll walk the line
dance in the moonshine
of our ancient bloodline

Always difficult to comment on song lyrics, as the music is so important to the whole - hope you're going to do an audio!

Hi there, Roy. Just picked up on this. The audio is amazing. I really enjoyed it...you, top-notch on vocals, of course, and the harmonica and piano, just awesome. The whole thing very Bob Dylanish;-)

I shall look forward to more, perhaps.

All best wishes,
Tina
