for feeding all the millions
i know you know we know how
so why not now
daa dee daa dee etc
saturday night saturday night blues (repeat)

	

WHEN GOD SHAKES HANDS WITH THE DEVIL
lyrics: daevid allen
music: kavus torabi


the fat cat smiles
the contract signed
he can be proud
the church agrees
his private army
will be used to stop the crowd

there's a peaceful protest
gathering the faithful
in the public square
they'll get beaten battered and
abused cuz they see god everywhere

birds stop singin
in the middle of the day
when god and the devil shake hands

media mogul calls his cop
and he takes him for a meal
he offers him a kickback
to bust this guy
who's a rival in some deal
big boy he got more to offer
the bent cop and his crew
smack in the bag
crack in the mind
the dead men
they don't leave no clues

smack in the eye-ball
crack in the bag
when god and the devil shake hands

round and round we go
who knows?
centre of the storm

there will come a time
and then you will see
when you believe the one you are
when you belong you really are
everywhere

when you see
that's the bed
that you lie on
it's the way to go
(have)
the bravado to try

even if you've
blown your trip
a thousand times
come come yet again

come now
come now
when god
and the devil shake hands
and New Jerusalem burns
aa aa aa ah ah ahh haaa
call the music
mind how you go
please….

this is not a convoy of despair
we come to share
we'll see you there
even if you've
blown your trip
a thousand times
come again
this is not a convoy of despair
we'll see you there
come with us and try again
come again
come again come again come again
c'mon

	

THE ETERNAL WHEEL SPINS
lyrics: orlando allen
music: fabio golfetti


eternal wheels are folding
through the corridors of time
octave doctors calling
healing our fractured mindz

spiralling in cycles
in eternal wheels we fold
when my insides turning outside
losing all control

harmonic waves we riding
shimmering with light
fractured moments passing
octave doctors calling

eternal wheel
wheel of life
eternal wheel
wheel of life

THIS REVOLUTION
poem by daevid allen
original music by dave sturt

you & i…
we were born in a time
of revolution…
but this revolution
will not be on TV
thanks to Gil Scott Heron
this revolution
will not sit on your hard drive
or be seen on CCTV
or viewed on MTV.

You will not find
the Android apps of
this revolution.
Cuz this revolution
can not be identified
located
imprisoned or locked up.
This revolution will replace
all those greedy capitalists
who SO fucked up…

This revolution
is from the source
of our thinking
our stories,
dreams,
our poetry…

This revolution
has already begun
inside us
invisibly
invincibly
irrevocably

in our
song lines
our movies
in our children,
in our families…

This revolution
begins one morning
without warning
maybe dawning on you
that you'd just broken thru
the conditioning
that's been holding you back
keepin you off track
off tap
off the script that you-were
put here to follow…
…and that you're always
only visiting…
waiting patiently
for tomorrow.

So you climb outa that hole
n reclaim yr soul purpose
get the fuck outa this circus
this casino economy of
distraction
inaction
mercantile putrefaction

This revolution
does not show up
in the street
it simply guides yr feet
in this music
you will find it
in between the beats
you can never learn it
or work to earn it
cuz its burned
into you at birth

This revolution
is the future seed
that takes root everywhere

This human seed
will save this ancient earth.

This future seed's
just waitin to be watered
by these poems words
n your songs…your stories…

This revolution
is inside you
brotha sista…
we all can see it if we
just let go,
let it grow
n just be it.

Becuz the opposition
cannot find it -cannot own it…
we
HAVE already won
my darlins
we ARE already one
my darlins

THIS REVOLUTION HAS BEGUN…
SHINE ON!
Shine on Love…
Shine on…

	

ZION MY T-SHIRT
original music dave sturt
lyrics & vocals daevid allen


I recall the time
we shared together
in that festival
somewhere remember
was it real
or was it a dream
or was it exactly
how it seemed?
still the same song
that we sing remember?
time has changed
the shape of things
forever
we'll meet again
in the dreamtime
catch us on the road
in the meantime

hold on to the planet tree
we gotta keep our sanitea

Oh I believe in you…

Look I am happy
to zion your t-shirt
or your old LP
but do you really think
I remember your face
after forty years
after a hundred trips
and a thousand beers
and a couple of kilos
of laughing grass
your face is lost
in the distant past
but although our bodies
have changed with age
the eyes they never
lie my friend
and that look you gave me
back in the day
I'd recognise that
anyway
I recognise
that crazy stare
I'd recognise that
anywhere
so have faith
my friend
I'd recognise
your eyes
anywhere

	

PIXIELATION
music: Ian East
words: daevid allen


Hey you people
of the planet
and the people
you know yourself!
We are pixies
of the green world
gnome and the gremlins
and the elf.

We live deep in the forest
with the Birch and the Elm
and the Oak.
We are utterly invisible
but wot we really love is a joke.
Think! Think of it!
Think! Think of it!
Think! Think of it!
Think about it a bit!
Think! Think of it!
Think! Think of it!
Think about it a bit then!
Think! Think of it!
Think! Think of it!
Think! Think of it!
Think about it a bit!
I think it's a pity
I think it's a pity
your not even
giving a shit yet!


We watch some of you and wonder
if you're really
as silly as you look!
You fumble and you stumble
as you bumble like a beetle
with your nose
in a big fat book.
You sit under a tree
cuz you wanna write a song
but the lines are on
the leaves of the trees.
You jiggle as you jive
and you struggle as you straggle
it's a giggle as we goggle
at your knees.

Now that you're here
and now that you're listening
we're gonna have to tell you
what you've done.
You've fucked up the soil
and you've fucked up the forest
and you've fucked up the world
for everyone.
You don't even know
that the earth is your body
and the ocean's
a part of your brain
We don't understand
why you wanna kill each other
if you haven't gone insane.

Think about n think about it n
Think! Think of it!
Think! Think of it!
Think about it
do something about it
Think about it some more then.

Think! think of it! think!
think of it!
think about it
do something about it
Think of it! Think of it!
Think of it! Think of it
Think about it again then!


Everybody knows
what you think about can happen
if you think about it
most of the time!
We all want a planet
that's a proper place to live
not the victim
of a horrible crime.
You don't understand
that a river's not a gutter
and the river is the blood
to the brain.
Poison in the soil
is poison in the body
so we're dying
of the acid in the rain.
So we're comin back
like human beings
and we look
quite a bit like you.
We'll dance and sing
and make you grin
and you'll know
who we are when we do.

You don't even know
that the earth is your body
and the ocean's a part of your brain
We don't understand
why you wanna kill each other
if you haven't gone insane.
So we're comin back
like human beings
and we look
quite a bit like you.
We'll dance and sing
and make you grin
and you'll know
who we are as we do.

You could do it!
You could do it!
You could do it!
You know you can do it!
You could be it!
You know you could do it!
If only you'd get it together!
Think about it
and think about it
and think about it
Its ridiculous!
What the hell is the point of it
If you don't give a a shit!
OY!
