Another song from those sessions in 2003.
I’m a little disappointed with this. The mix doesn’t capture what is going on with the rhythm guitar and the solo was an off the top of my head take to show this is where we’ll put the guitar solo.
But I’m proud of the words.
Do you remember the questions of Orwell’s 84?
Well How come they don’t get a run anymore?
What’s that I hear the Polies a sayin’?
Who cares, the question is who’s doin the payin?
The bureau of skeptics they ridicule the truth
While media barons poison the mind of the
Money power and sexual excess
These are the measures of the worlds “success”
But it all falls down in the face of love
“It all falls down”
Video, High techno lounge room war
Show the lights but they don’t show the gore
Let’s not look at human misery
Just categorise people because of our apathy
Circuses & Vaudeville keep the masses
While the big boys laugh at you the abused
Power, pain & the politics of persuasion
Don’t put human suffering in the equation
What did the little boy with the almond eyes do
To make you feel the ugly way that you do
Take a magic ride in a chemical haze
Why don’t you flinch when the city’s ablaze?
Try & Live in 3D virtual reality
Supine, rudderless, spineless spirituality
Let the politicians reign
Over their grubby statistical domain
We are free when we choose to be
YES you are free when you choose to be etc
