Why Can't We Live Together

Tell me why, tell me why, tell me why
Why can't we live together
Tell me why, tell me why
Why can't we live together
 
Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together
 
No more war, no more war, no more war
Just a little peace
No more war, no more war
All we want is some peace in this world
 
Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together
 
No matter, no matter what color
You are still my brother
I said no matter, no matter what color
You are still my brother
 
Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together
 
Everybody wants to live
Everybody's got to be together
 
Everybody wants to live
Everybody's going to be together
 
Everybody's got to be together
Everybody wants to be together
 
I said no matter, no matter what color
You're still my brother
I said no matter, no matter what color
You're still my brother
 
Everybody wants to live together
Why can't we be together
 
Gotta live together
Together

The Undercover Man

Here at the glass - all the usual problems,
All the habitual farce.
You ask, in uncertain voice, what you should do
As if there were a choice
 
But to carry on miming the song
And hope that it all works out right.
Tonight it all seems so strange - my spirit feels rigid,
My body deranged;
 
Still that's only from one point of view
And we can't have illusion between me and you,
My constant friend, ever close at hand -
You and the undercover man.
 
I reflect: 'It's very strange to be going through this change
With no idea of what it's all been about
Except in the context of time...'
Oh, but I shirk it, I've half a mind not to work it all out.
 
Is this madness just the recurring wave of total emotion,
Or a hide for the undercover man,
Or a litany - all the signs are there of fervent devotion -
Or the cracking of the dam?
 
It's cracked; smashed and bursting over you,
There was no reason to expect such disaster.
Now, panicking, you burst for air,
Drowning, you know you care
 
For nothing and no-one but yourself
And would deny even this hand which stretches out towards you to help.
But would I leave you in this moment of your trial?
Is it my fault that I'm here to see you crying?
 
These phantom figures all around you should have told you,
You should have found out by now,
If you hadn't gone and tried to do it all by yourself.
 
Even now we are not lost: if you look out at the night
You'll see the colours and the lights seem to say
People are not far away, at least in distance,
And it's only our own dumb resistance
 
That's making us stay.
When the madness comes, let it flood on down and over me sweetly,
Let it drown the parts of me weak and blessed and damned,
Let it slake my life, let it take my soul and living completely,
 
Let it be who I am.
 
There may not be time for us all to run in tandem together -
The horizon calls with its parallel lines.
It may not be right for you to have and hold in one way forever
And yet you still have time,
 
You still have time.
 

Living in the wasteland of the free

Living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got preachers dealing in politics and diamond mines
and their speech is growing increasingly unkind
They say they are Christ's disciples
but they don't look like Jesus to me
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got politicians running races on corporate cash
Now don't tell me they don't turn around and kiss them peoples' ass
You may call me old-fashioned
but that don't fit my picture of a true democracy
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got CEO's making two hundred times the workers' pay
but they'll fight like hell against raising the minimum wage
and If you don't like it, mister, they'll ship your job
to some third-world country 'cross the sea
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
Living in the wasteland of the free
where the poor have now become the enemy
Let's blame our troubles on the weak ones
Sounds like some kind of Hitler remedy
Living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got little kids with guns fighting inner city wars
So what do we do, we put these little kids behind prison doors
and we call ourselves the advanced civilization
that sounds like crap to me
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We got high-school kids running 'round in Calvin Klein and Guess
who cannot pass a sixth-grade reading test
but if you ask them, they can tell you
the name of every crotch on MTV
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
We kill for oil, then we throw a party when we win
Some guy refuses to fight, and we call that the sin
but he's standing up for what he believes in
and that seems pretty damned American to me
and it feels like I am living in the wasteland of the free
 
Living in the wasteland of the free
where the poor have now become the enemy
Let's blame our troubles on the weak ones
Sounds like some kind of Hitler remedy
Living in the wasteland of the free
 
While we sit gloating in our greatness
justice is sinking to the bottom of the sea
Living in the wasteland of the free
Living in the wasteland of the free
Living in the wasteland of the free
 

Atmosphere

We kiss
We lie
Yeah we try

We love
We fight
Yeah we fly

'Cause in love it's like your dreaming
When we just give into the feeling
We could all fly away this evening
Tonight

I... I want out of here
Up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere
Take me up
High, high let's get out of here
Up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere

Oh oh oh oh
In the atmosphere
Oh oh oh oh
In the atmosphere oh

We laugh
We frown
Yeah we grow

It's up
Then down
Still we go

'Cause in love it's like your dreaming
When we just give into the feeling
We could all fly away this evening
Tonight

I... I want out of here
Up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere
Take me up
High, high let's get out of here
Up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere

Oh oh oh oh
In the atmosphere
Oh oh oh oh
In the atmosphere oh

Baby baby don't go
I know you know, you know I know
So won't you come and take me up now
Baby baby don't go
I know you know, you know I know
So won't you come and take me up now

(We kiss, we fly, we try)
Take deep your breath
(We lie, we fight, we try)
Take deep your breath

I... I want out of here
Up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere
Take me up
High, high let's get out of here
Up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere

Oh up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere

Oh up in the atmosphere
In the atmosphere

Marketplace

Behold the glory, behold the wonder,
What we have made shall not be torn asunder,
Such vast achievement stone and papyrus,
Beneath the gaze of Isis and Osiris.
 
Land of majesty,
Where the heavens smile,
Jewel of history shining,
By the Nile.
 
Serve and be silent,
You who are chattel,
We think of you as little more than cattle,
This is your lot now and we advise you,
To bow before whatever master buys you.
 
Feel the power here,
Power has its price,
Some can live like gods,
Some must sacrifice...
 
Through the centuries many backs have bent,
Many dreams are built,
Many lives are spent.
 
Look and be humbled, learn what your place is,
Egyptian slave no matter what your race is,
This is your future your life suspended,
And everything you knew before has ended,
 
You are Egypt's now,
We have all control,
From your every step,
To your very soul
