Straight At Yer Head

This song is by Lionrock and appears on the album An Instinct for Detection (1997).

I want to taste a new dessert
To see how other people work
To see them irrigate the dirt
With water from a bank.
I took my tape and tape recorder
And made my way up to the border
Where I received a legal order
From a man who drove a tank.
Wanted to see another country
But the country wouldn't have me
They said they have a new policy
To protect their economy.
I said I want to see your city
They said they couldn't entertain me
They said they simply had too many
And If I tried they would detain me.

He said, "You haven't any place here
Why you show your face here?
I'll keep you at the base here
Don't move 'til you're told."
He returned with the command
"Go back to your land. The only way to enter is with gold."

What you get is what you see not what they say (x5)
A promise in a second. The truth will take a day
To see the truth in every step along the way
Is like a child that learns to judge within his play

I want to turn my water to wine, but I'm not divine
So I must feel work to do it.
I want to turn their sorrow to salt, the weak to the strong
So we've got to think our way through it.
Closing in from all quarters. Pressure to achieve is like I'm forced to grow
All your sons and your daughters. They have to fight to keep the little that they know

I never wanted to be free until I knew I was in prison
I didn't know I was a key until I unlocked the pain in living'
I want to see the vegetation To inspire my vocation
To see the plans of every nation. Hear the words from their hearts.

Won't rest 'til the folks sing tunes from the heart string sounds from the true springs of our histories
Confessed let them come through lives that evade you born to renew and explain our mysteries
Your eyes won't lie when they're allowed to see
Your sun, your skies see that you're allowed to be
Your reason why so we're wise to take heed
Your time, your earth, so plant your seeds (x3)
Plant your seeds (Repeat)
