Harper Roy


Ghost Dance

Plastic money flexidream
and comfort for the preacher
keep the debtor out of prison
borrowing the future
how much future can he borrow
how much past can he forget
when now's become part of tomorrow
just a flashy fast advertisement
that talks about beginning
at the end.
You imagine
you can change the world
and you're right
it's happening right here and now
tonight tonight.
Relief for hungry children
is nothing but a symptom
of accelerated ignorance
unaware of how a world
forcloses on invading circumstance
and brings a new beginning
all at once
You imagine
you can change the world
and you're right
it's happening right here and now
tonight tonight.
where ice and desert travels
and the scale of justice levels
and the house that silly jack built
while forgetting ages cycling
is crushed inside a moment he forgot
there'll be a new beginning
thanks a lot
You imagine
you can change the world
and you're right
it's happening right here and now
tonight tonight.
All songs written by Roy Harper
