Sit Back

I saw fifty seven swans
Astonished silver on all but one
Though one of them is gone
The lonely lover carries on

We’re all getting cooked on the inside
So, sit back and enjoy the ride

No matter what you say
No matter what you do
Games are always being played
And its never up to you

A father tells his son
We need the weaponry, we need the guns
They’re not the same as us
Their saviour's different, he speaks in tongues
Wisdom from the son
I’m at peace with peace and at war with war
Show me any time
Where the darkest energies has helped us all

We're all getting fried on the outside
So, sit back and enjoy the ride

What if what you say
What if what you do
Takes away a little pain
Makes a better you

I got caned by nuns in grade school
Her hand was huge next to mine
All eyes fixed in fear on my face
I pulled my hand away in time
And the whip came down a second time
And in her eyes I see
For this 5-year-old the worst was yet to come

Its 1982
And all the gurus have missed the cue
Now its everywhere
No one saw it
Or even dared
What if miracles
Sing like music from our mouths
Like when I first saw you
You asked the question
I found the truth

We’re all getting baked on the topside
So, sit back and enjoy the ride
