[for those who can hear me i say, do not despair.
the misery upon us is but the passing of greed,
the bitterness of men who fear the way of human progress.]
[the hate of men will pass, and dictators die.
and the power they took from the people
will return to the people.
and so long as men die, liberty will never perish.]
[don't give yourself to brutes!
men who despise, enslave you, who regiment your lives,
tell you what to do or what to think or what to feel!
who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder!
don't give yourself to these unnatural men!
machine men! with machine minds, and machine hearts!
you are not machines! you are not cattle! you are men!
you have the love of humanity in your hearts!
you don't hate!
only the unloved hate, the unloved and the unnatural!
don't fight for slavery! fight for liberty!
in the 17th chapter of st. luke it is written,
the kingdom of god is within man,
not one man nor a group of men!
but in all men! in you!
you the people have the power,
the power to create machines,
the power to create happiness,
you the people have the power to make this life free and beautiful,
to make this life a wonderful adventure!
then in the name of democracy,
let us use that power!
let us all unite!
let us fight for a new world!
a decent world!
that will give men a chance to work,
that would give youth a future,
and old age a security.
by the promise of these things,
brutes have risen to power,
but they lie, they do not fulfill that promise,
and they never will!
dictators free themselves, but enslave the people!
now let us fight, to fulfill that promise!
let us fight to free the world!
to do away with national barriers!
to do away with greed!
with hate and intolerance!
let us fight for a world of reason!
a world where science and progress will lead to all men's happiness!
soldiers! in the name of democracy, let us all unite!]
[wherever you are
[the clouds are lifting,
the sun is breaking free,
we are coming out the darkness.]
[we are coming into a new world,
a kind world,
where men will rise above their hate,
[the soul of man has been given wings!
and at last, he is beginning to fly,
he is flying to the rainbow,
into the light of hope, into the future,
that belongs to you, to me, and to all of us.

listened to this album a lot when it came out, really great production and cute, thoughtful lyrics. the fast beat and major key of 'yellow horse' against the sadder lyrics makes for a really unique feel Mel Marshall
