Default So Long, Farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye!

MANIFESTO
(Ferry/Manzanera)

Iím for a life around the corner
That takes you by surprise
That comes leaves all you need
And more besides

I am for a life and time by numbers
Blast in fast 'n' low
Add ím up, account for luck
You never know

I am into friendship and plain sailing
Through frenzied ports o' call
O shake the hand to beat the band
With love is all

Or nothing to the man who wants tomorrow
There's one in every town
A crazy guy, he'd rather die
Than be tied down

I am for the man who drives the hammer
To rock you 'til the grave
His power drill shocks
A million miles away

I am for the revolution's coming
I don't know where she's been
For those who dare because it's there
I know I've seen

Now and then I've suffered imperfection
I've studied marble flaws
And faces drawn pale and worn
By many tears

I am that I am from out of nowhere
to fight without a cause
Roots strain against the grain
With brute force you'd better

Hold out when you're in doubt
Question what you see
And when you find an answer
Bring it home to me.

(As I have no idea from when on PA1 will switch on 'read only', I take the opportunity to say "So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye!")
