A huge sound that I fluked one day on keyboard. This song is about trendy anarchists and how they want a revolution but without giving up any of their comfortable life. Meaning they are really doing it for their ego's, not for any ideal. Maybe it should be about John Lennon? That's a taboo suggestion because he spoke of peace and love - but that's very easy to do - he may as well have been campaigning for no more concrete sandwiches. Hardly radical, about as safe a ground as you can get.

You want a revolution don't you?

And you'll want something with that won't you?

Something nice, something for all time

Something that will keep you warm in the night-time.

God Knows I've tried

And God Knows I've lied

And that's one reason why I'm learning to fly.

Tortured? Do it with feeling.

Shooting People? Deeper than that.

Murder of Individuals? Do it with feeling.

Living Hell? Deeper than that.

You want sure-fire solutions.

Something to preach your' far fetched conclusions.

Something sliced, something for your' prime

Something making you a legend in your' lifetime.

God Knows I've tried

And God Knows I've cried

And that's two reasons why

I'm Preparing to fly.

Tortured? Do it with feeling.

Shooting People? Deeper than that.

Murder of Individuals? Do it with feeling.

Living Hell? Deeper than that.

Deep deeper than that.
