lyrics

Centuries ago today
Bach was playing keys all day
His mind was set to follow faith

Eighty years ago – they said
Jazz was moving fast ahead
To race and free your mind instead

Now it seems so strange how far we’ve come
Bach and Jazz can even get along

Forty years ago and more
(sgt) Pepper taught the band for sure
to sing there is no need for war

Suddenly I’m not the man
who used to want to hold your hand
I’m sorry but its time to go

Feels so strange to know the life we’ll miss
Standing on the edge of an abyss

Hate each-other, fight and kill and rape
Farts of a contemporary ape

Shook the world and warmed it up
Banji thinking prayed and jumped
I wonder what was on your mind

Far-cadelic music age
Commercial hits and human rage
There seems to be no human kind

Help me know whats right and move along
Certainly we’re doing something wrong
