Inspiration! Songtext
von W. H. Lung

Inspiration! Songtext

Mr P and his three-faced embassy
Walk hand in hand to a human parliament
Chanting, we got
Qualms with the rich
Qualms with the ill,
Qualms with the poor
Chanting, we got
Qualms with the young
Qualms with the old,
Qualms with the poor

To murmured agreement

(The house sat, struck still
In silent attentive frenzy:)


Throw your arms, he says,
Up in an ecstasy
And dance, white men,
Dance and repeat after me:
It's now law that:
One equals two
One equals three,
One equals four
Now you're getting it!
Praise unto me and let it be seen
I am your Lord
But what do we call you?

Came the voice of the interlocutor

One, one, one, one
Call me Inspiration!

Inspiration! Praise the name
Inspiration! You came again

(Mr P's six hundred and fifty-three faced embassy
Dance, dance, dance up to the edge of the sea)

To hurl yourself, he proclaims,
Off the promontory
Is to take my name in a meaningful reverie
A dissenter shouts, wait a second
We're not the young,
We're not the old,
We're not the poor
Anyway, my arm's getting sore
One, two, three, four
Let's all go home
Mr P was left alone


Say what? Come again
Say what? Come again
Say what? Come again
I'm Inspiration
But I came again
But I came again
But I came again
No one want some inspiration?

(Mr P is left stranded on a coastal jut of white rock
With Jesus, Zeus and a handful of sun gods
Waiting, watching as the tide rolls in)

Going down
Into culture,
Drowning in
And under all the culture
Going down,
Going down,
Into the sea,
Drowning in
All this eternity

If the earth feels small,
Throw yourself from a high wall
And watch as the ground grows tall

We're dropping like flies,
What's the plan?
Look up boys,
See what we could've won

We're dropping like flies,
What's the plan?
Look up boys,
See what we could've won

We're dropping like flies,
What's the plan?
Look up boys,
See what we could've won

We're dropping like flies,
What's the plan?
Look up boys,
See what we could've won

As we live, so we die,
Give it time
Take the coins off your eyes,
None survive
Men are words, lives are lines,
Allay a life
As we live as we die,
No one needs us to survive
As we live so we die,
No one needs us to survive
Take the coins off your eyes,
No one needs us to survive
Men are words,
Lives are lines,
No one needs us to survive
And we live then we die,
No one needs us to survive

Inspiration! Praise the name
Inspiration! You came again
Inspiration! Praise the name
Inspiration! Don't come again
