THE WORLD TONIGHT

I saw you sitting at the center of a circle.

Everybody, everybody wanted something from you

I saw you sitting there

 

I saw you swaying to the rhythm of the music.

Caught you playing, praying to the voice inside you

I saw you swaying there

 

I don't care what you wanna be

I go back too far; I'm in front of me!

It doesn't matter what they say

They're giving the game away

 

I can see the world tonight

Look into the future.

See it in a different light.

I can see the world tonight

 

I heard you listening to a secret conversation.

You were crying, you were trying not to let them hear you

I heard you listening in

 

Never mind what they wanna do

You've got a right to your point of view

It doesn't matter what they say

They're giving the game away - hey - hey.

 

I can see the world tonight

Look into the future

See it in a different light

I can see the world tonight

 

I saw you hiding from a flock of paparazzi.

You were hoping, you were hoping that the ground would swallow you.

I saw you hiding there

 

I don't care what you wanna be

I go back so far, I'm in front of me!

It doesn't matter what they say

They're giving the game away - hey - hey

 

I can see the world tonight

Look into the future

See it in a different light

I can see the world tonight

 

Look into the future

I can see the world tonight

See it in a different light

I can see the world tonight

I can see the world tonight.

 

CHASING THE CHERRY

Fragile fragments

Clattering down

The lavish marble staircase

Tinkling smithereens

Smashing, grabbing

At china stars

Bursting in clusters

Scattering E-side cats

Credit cards dropping

From rain-clouds

Pour down on the well-polished floor

Tortoiseshell hair combs

And black tape casettes

Rattle the cages of

Knife-wielding grand dames And say, are you chasing the cherry?

The merry-go-round of the roses

If so, you must know

That the downside

Is to sink like a ferry

 

Ascending the slope

In herring-bone fashion

Holding on chromium steel

Lifting the bar bells

With candlestick motion

Side-stepping hot wax

And wheel

Flying with lizards

All blown in a gust

Through staining glass

Window and covered with dust blood,

To keep out the rain

 

And say, are you chasing the cherry?

The merry-go-round of the roses

If so, you must know

That the down side

Is to sink like a ferry

 

A weapon is not

Worth a button,

When anti-world

Matters explode

And chandeliers

Drop from the ceiling

With sharp-shooters' skill

 

Exhausted collapse

In the playground

Apeak epileptic remains

And froth at the mouth

Like a river, till

Teachers in apple-pie beds

Reach out

Chalk-filled hands

And lift

Lift

 

And say, are you chasing the cherry?

The singlular red one on top

It gleams with particular pleasure

That may never stop

If so, you must know

That the high tide

Has sunk like a ferry.

 

WAS IT REALLY TWENTY YEARS AGO ?

What's changed?

Issues still the same.

 

Then we wanted

 

END OF APARTHEID

PEACE ON EARTH

LOVE & UNDERSTANDING

 

Now

What have we learned?

 

CHANGE COMES SLOWLY

But it is

CHANGING!!!

 

KEEP PUSHING

KEEP THE FAITH

AND PRAY

THAT WE HAVE BETTER NEWS TO REPORT

TWENTY YEARS FROM TODAY.

 

BIG BOYS BICKERING

Big boys bickering

That's what they're doing every day

Big boy bickering

Fucking it up for everyone.

 

Guess why they're betting on the track?

They're trying to win your money back.

All of the taxes that you paid

Went to fund a masquerade.

 

Big boys bickering...

 

We stand here waiting

Underneath the tower block

Who will win, who will lose?

Which way do the big boys choose?

Which of us will ever know

What goes on?

 

So while they argue through the night

Shaking their sticks of dynamite,

Babies are dying throught the day

They want to blow us all away.

 

Big boys bickering

And so the game goes on and on

Big boys bickering

Fucking it up for everyone,

For everyone!

 

CITY PARK

Twenty-seven press-ups

At back park bench altar

Eight warm even notes

From tall church cool bell

High stacatto twittering of small birds

Against throbbing pigeons'

"Oh how do you do?

Oh how do you coo?"

 

World's long low surface

Tickles to life with strangers

Sbiffing collie couple

Speed-walking high-armed

Brisk little sergeant major woman

Bouncing peke in tow.

 

Moorhen flutters squawking

Cross crowded city pond to

All sorts of ducks

Mill slowly round white swans

Stately black swans

Snow tipped nipple red beaks.

 

A crow cackles

With thumb on black comb rasp.

Winter-bare rose bushes

Line asphalt path

Old yellow Scotch

Pink Posy, Pour Toi,

Polar Star, Mood Music

And Yesterday.

Where silent gardeners dig.

 

Eighteen press-ups

Facing my lover's home

Grins to the sky.

Nine nods this way

Nine nods that.

And I pray

To the spirit of goodness

To open page on a fine, fine day

For ever, and ever,

and EVER

And EVER.

 

MOON'S A MANDARIN

Moon's a mandarin

Orange segment.

Stars as clear as you like.

Smelling of pines

And eucalyptus

 

Quite a night.

 

TROUBLE IS

Rabbit running in cirlce

chasing his tail because

it looks like candy floss.

Trouble is -- rabbits don't eat candy floss.

 

Black labrador barking at the antics

pof his shadow on the wall.

Trouble is -- shadows don't fight back.

 

A pair of gloves hanging from

a back pocket argue about which hand will hold the rake.

Trouble is -- gloves don't give a shit.

 

A BILLION BEES IN THE BORAGE

And if, instead of passing,

You stop,

You can hear the hum.

Billions of them

Bobbing from star to star.

Though flowers

Are sky blue, from a

Distance the field looks purple.

Each bee is different

And as they roam

The borage field

They hum.

 

GIVE MAN A BREAK

Workers on the picket line

picking up the trash

executive negotiators

shout about the cash

 

Workers on the inside

whipping up the dough

while the old man's country

gets to go too slow

 

go-go-go

 

Give the man a break

give the guy a chance

ain't no law say a man can't dance

 

Doctors gonna operate

wants to know if you'd

like to buy a kidney

mustn't eat the food

 

Later in the hospital

while he's on the job

poisoned in the kitchen

 

by a dirty slob

 

Give the man a break

give the guy a chance

ain't no law say a man can't dance.

 

LOOKING FOR CHANGES

I saw a cat with a machine in his brain

The man who fed him said

He didn't feel any pain

I'd like to see that man take out that machine

And stick it in his own brain

You know what I mean

 

I saw a rabbit with its eyes full of tears

The lab that owned her had

Been doing it for years

Why don't we make them pay for every last eye

That couldn't cry its own tears

Do you know what I mean

 

When I tell you that we'll all be

Looking for changes

Changes in the way we treat our fellow creatures

And we will learn how to grow

 

Well I tell you that we'll all be

Looking for changes

Changes in the way we treat our fellow creatures

And We Will Learn How To Grow

When we're looking for changes

 

I saw a monkey that was learning to choke

A guy beside him gave him cigarettes to smoke

And everytime that monkey started to cough

The bastard laughed his head off

Do you know what I mean

 

When I tell you that we'll all be

Looking for changes

Changes in the way we treat our fellow creatures

And we will learn how to grow

 

When we're looking for changes

We're looking for changes

We're looking for changes

We're looking for changes in the way we are

 

ALL TOGETHER NOW

One, two, three, four

Can I have a little more?

five, six, seven eight nine ten I love you.

 

A, B, C, D

Can I bring my friend to tea?

E, F, G H I J I love you.

 

Sail the ship, Jump the tree

Skip the rope, Look at me

 

All together now....

 

Black, white, green, red

Can I take my friend to bed?

Pink, brown, yellow orange blue I love you

 

All together now....

 

Sail the ship, Jump the tree

Skip the rope, Look at me

 

All together now....
