01. Savage Freedom

It's the age of cvs
Contract to contract
And my stress levels rise
This is a job for life
(there are no jobs for life)
I am forced to a decision
I am forced to see the other side
I can see a way out of here
I can see a way out of here

Placards of prophets
And great leaders of men
Personality cults
All over again

(but) we'll build shrines for our loved ones
We'll burn fires and lights
And we'll talk of the old ways
To find new ways that might...
...they just might

In the villages and hills
On the tundra and ice
To the forests of kauri
In the paddies of rice
By the lakes on the plains
To the great mountain range
Love the land and its people
I can see a way out

With the hours that we kill
And the dreams that we hide
Of alternative life styles
This savage freedom I love


02. Democracy

You have a choice, we are your voice
Red, blue or yellow.
We will blow away the green
Another five lane motorway
(You'll never get a referendum anyway)
Funny handshakes. insider dealing
Et in arcadia. arcadia ego
Backhanders and salamanders
A powerhouse that is morally
Mechula

I'm sorry democracy is changing
I'm sorry democracy is changing

I'm not a slogan or a badge
Or a cross in the ballot box
Neither values or objectives
You do not represent my deepest
Thoughts and wishes
Education in obsolete skills
Stereotyping and media projection
Industrial psychologists
Plan a campaign that is financed by
Big business

You have a choice, we are your voice
Red, blue or yellow.
We will blow away the green
Another five lane motorway
(You'll never get a referendum anyway)


03. Prozac People

I woke up in the darkness and i tried to see the clock
It was four a.m.
I was curled up like a foetus and my muscles were stretched taut
I couldn't face the burden of another week of worry
I was broken
I took a green and yellow pill. washed down with filter coffee
'til it kicked in

Get me out
Keep me up
Level me out

I was isolated by the way i thought and felt
They saw my moodswings
I travelled down the longitude of opposite emotions
I bi-polar
In the north they saw my upside. my excitable and optimistic spirit
In the south they saw my anger and my tears and my despair
They saw my moodswings

Get me out
Keep me up
Level me out

I was one of the prozac people
I was one of the prozac people

Don't monitor this guinea pig for research any more
I will try again
Pharmaceutical conglomerates just count me as a unit
For their product
Identify the enemy. remove the source of fear
Start to change my life
It's a false state of elation
You can join the prozac nation
If you want to

Get me out
Keep me up
Level me out

I was one of the prozac people
I was one of the prozac people


04. Lanterns

Equinox sun. Summers of fun
No mortgage repayments to weigh my mind
And if it all fell through tomorrow
Put my pack on my back
And it's home where the lunatics roam
Faith, faith moved a mountain
Where the rivers are so clean
And the consciousness so green
And the luminous folk shine like
Lanterns of hope

Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope

Ribbons of wishes, tied to the trees
Hives full of honey, yield to the seed

And if it all fell through tomorrow
Put my pack on my back
And it's home where the lunatics roam
Faith, faith moved a mountain
Where the rivers are so clean
And the consciousness so green
And the luminous folk shine like
Lanterns of hope

Lanterns of hope shine on
Lanterns of hope

Fire, fire light the lantern
When we drink from the streams
And we grow our own greens
And the fences have all been torn down

Lanterns of hope (eight repeats)


05. Aeon

Denominations of a thousand
Different deities
Congregations, endless carnivals of gaiety
Why should i fear? why should i cling on to anything?
it's not how long long i live but how beautiful it is

And i saw crying. there was turmoil in the marketplace
I saw economies perpetuate the next arms race
And i felt helpless and there was nothing i could say
And then i noticed there's a change
That's coming over me

Tapping into the aeon

Balance of the eco-system,
Self-reliance beckons us
Windmills and waterfalls, strawberries and lily ponds
When skyscrapers no longer block the sun's meridian
When we wake up to the whisper of the voice

Tapping into the aeon


07. Intellect

Gold rimmed glasses hypnotise
Acts of love are analysed
Rites of passage rationalised
Reason then gives birth to lies

Don't pull me. don't pull me.
Don't pull me down
Don't pull me. don't pull me.
Don't pull me down
A dog doesn't question why he barks

Kiss my intellect goodbye
Kiss my

The mind creates monstrosities
Paradise makes the opposite
Constitution of my heart
A clear conscience all i need

Don't pull me. don't pull me.
Don't pull me down
Don't pull me. don't pull me.
Don't pull me down
A dog doesn't question why he barks

Kiss my intellect goodbye
Kiss my

To feel and cry, to move and run
To laugh at hate and overcome
To laugh at fate and go as one
I am happy in this state

Don't pull me. Don't pull me.
Don't pull me down
Don't pull me. Don't pull me.
Don't pull me down
A dog doesn't question why he barks

Kiss my intellect goodbye
Kiss my intellect goodbye


08. Medicine Wheel

She walks up by the path
Into a mountain side
Sedona red the landscape
An offering for her life
She starts to rub her red clay
Across her fair white skin
She starts to dance and play
She plays a drum and sings

She builds a medicine wheel

He studied physics there
An undergraduate
But in the coffee shop
He talks of gaia's love
He talks of gaia's love
He speaks out how he feels
He turns the medicine wheel

He builds a medicine wheel
We build a medicine wheel

I...am so grateful

He wields a band of fire
To fill his heart's desire
And how the wolves they bay
He hears a brand new day
With reverence he plays his song
Stone by stone he carries on
Following some high ideal
He turns the medicine wheel

He turns a medicine wheel
He builds a medicine wheel
She builds a medicine wheel
We build a medicine wheel
He builds a medicine wheel
She builds a medicine wheel
We build a medicine wheel
We build a medicine wheel


09. Absent Friends

I remember the sun beating down
Across my back
The taste of olives and pleasures that
You taught me
And we broke bread and then we drank
Cheap white wine
Memories of happiness frozen for all time

I hear you crying in my heart
Absent friends shall live by love
Remember places of my past
Absent friends shall live by love
And the dead shall live again
Absent friends shall live by
Love...love...love...love

And I remember laughing so much we cried
You knew my every thought, there was
Nothing i could hide
We celebrated moons we marvelled at
The night sky
With flute and drum and pen we were
Grateful for our lives

I hear you crying in my heart
Absent friends shall live by love
Remember places of my past
Absent friends shall live by love
And the dead shall live again
Absent friends shall live by
Love...love...love...love

I hear you crying in my heart
Absent friends shall live by love
Remember places of my past
Absent friends shall live by love
And the dead shall live again
Absent friends shall live by
Love...love...love...love


10. Another Bloody Election

Rosette and campaign trails
False gestures. too much make-up
Elected to serve the public
How did you make your fortune?
I love your cheesey smile
Please will you kiss my baby
More cars and endless car parks
Planning permission granted

Another bloody election
Another bloody election

Cover-ups. official statements
Digest my gospel headlines
Marilyn committed suicide
Some nut blew jfk away
Mr. Murdoch cares for orphans
McDonalds goes eco-friendly
I'm cynical of you
There's millions like me too

Another bloody election
Another bloody election

Another bloody election
Another bloody election
