pretty sweet greedy broken restless weak pretty worthless pretty sweet greedy broken restless weak You sell me you buy me You shape me deny me You make it you fake it I take it and I love you Time is slipping away Delirious impossible obedient insensible We dance we dance we dance You say go dance "Lie down and dance!" Time is slipping away You sell me you buy me You shape me deny me You make it you fake it I take it and I love you And all is false all regret And all debate all politics and all events all common sense dampened down muted now surrender Time is slipping away Desirous impervious subservient oblivious We dance we spend we bend You say go buy "Lie down and dance!" Time is slipping away You sell me you buy me You shape me deny me You make it you fake it I take it and I love you Here's a little catechism take out your change purse and change it back to a sow's ear to the real deal Here's a little mysticism get out your mirror and smash it up to the bitter truth to the bitter end

Dream of people altogether singing each singing his way to self to realms on realms within All singing their way on out of self singing through to unity kindling into flame of common purpose from the altogether singing Such singing once I heard where black children sang the chants of work in slavery of hope for life at last and justice beyond the spaded unmarked grave The platform dignitaries of master race stooping for the occasion were suddenly shamed and shaken by these fierce and singing children chanting out their stormy hunger for freeborn rights still wickedly denied Again once in packed and stifling union hall where miners gathered with their womenfolk I heard such singing While outside in the listening street men stood uneasy and shivering beneath their heavy uniforms more firmly gripped their guns though unarmed were the singers save for the weapon of song And once again where followers of the ripening crops along that hot relentless valley hemmed by cool mirage of high Sierras square danced with riotous feet outstamping fiddlesqueak and banjo’s tinny jingle There came a quiet and from the quiet burst altogether singing yearning back to lands whence these were driven the known and homely acres then lusting forward to the richness of unending rows and vines and groves The treasure tended only but some day to be taken and be rightly used
