lyrics

Hello, and welcome to the show!
I've got a special guest, i'm gonna ask him some questions.
It's Conscious Route, from the Urban Folk Crowd, so good evening.
Can you tell us how you see the world, now?

I see this new urban frontier is born,
the doctor's propaganda, the midwife is faith
The father is philosophy, the mother is the Earth
Another miracle entering stratosphere, mentoring this atmosphere
Of the cosmic force
Tryin' to pool the atoms while splittin' for divorce
We're all in this same space
The movement, right or wrong, striving for improvement
System among system. Old habits
Breeding insight to the wisdom for the few
While many just follow and they don't know what to do
Mimicking the TV 'cos they haven't got a clue
Not agreeing with the penalty but settle for the price
Not switchin' up the music when the record is their life
Sick of the same song, still they drop it on
Far from emotions, in the West they got it wrong
When bodies feeling dark, don't listen to your heart
Dreams turn to nightmares, insomniac sleeping
And focus on the past that you're never getting back
It may be just an interview, i hope peeps can listen and recognise some facts

So what do you think is wrong?
I think the system
Why d'you want to put it into song?
Hope people listen
What do you hope to achieve?
The soul, freed,
To put it more precise, the inner strength so peeps believe

So it sounds like you've got it all figured out,
But do you just want to climb onto the rooftops and shout
About the things you want to change or have you really got a plan?
Because i think that we all know the future's in our hands
But nobody can agree on what that future is
Is it observation, recreation, conservation or business?
Or is it the heart, the soul and the voice?
And when we get down to it do we have a choice?
Or are we cogs in an unstoppable machine,
How can we get to where we're going if we don't know where we've been?
So can you tell me, are you ready to put it to the test?
Is it all inside your head or can you make it manifest?

It's lifting me, i hear you understand
It's hard to make a choice when your destiny's laid in legislation
Although you hear my voice
It comes back to the question do we really have a choice?

So what do you think is wrong?
I think the system
Why d'you want to put it into song?
Hope people listen
What do you hope to achieve?
The soul, freed,
To put it more precise, the inner strength so peeps believe

So what do you believe?
Time's in the moment
But actually how can people use that to be more free?
Time's not a wizard, there's no tricks up the sleeve.
Just stay more present, in touch with inner needs
So what do people need?
Life in the moment
But actually, what's the change that you want to see?
Government decisions not overlooking publicly
So we can build a better future success for our seed

But what do you think is wrong?
I think the system
Why d'you want to put it into song?
Hope people listen
What do you hope to achieve?
The soul, freed,
To put it more precise, the inner strength so peeps believe

So what do you think is wrong?
I hate the system
Why d'you want to put it into song?
Hope people listen
What do you hope to achieve?
The soul, freed,
To learn to value self as better purpose than just greed
