Roy Harper - I Hate The White Man Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • Far across the ocean
  • In the land of look and see
  • There once was a time
  • For you and me
  • Where the winds blow sweetly
  • And the easy seas flow still
  • And where the barefoot dream of life
  • Can laugh and cry its fill
  • Where slot machine confusions
  • And the plastic universe
  • Are objects of amusement
  • In the fiction of their curse
  • And where the crazy whiteman
  • And his teargas happiness
  • Lies dead and long since buried
  • By his own fantastic mess
  • For I hate the whiteman
  • And his plastic excuse
  • For I hate the whiteman
  • And the man who turned him loose...
  • And the reins of coloured thunder
  • Of the stallion of the dawn
  • Ride the coalfire morning
  • On the beach where all is born
  • Where the emperor of meaning
  • Is burning up his forts
  • And sits to warm his toes around
  • A fire made up of useless thoughts
  • And when the children tempt him
  • With the riddles of their trance
  • He flings the flames of solstice
  • Casting laughs into their dance
  • And while a crazy whiteman
  • In the desert of his bones
  • Lies as bleached as the paradise
  • He likes to think he owns
  • And I hate the whiteman
  • In his evergreen excuse
  • Oh I hate the whiteman
  • And the man who turned him loose...
  • And far across the reaches
  • Of the drifting yellow sands
  • The living carpet wilderness
  • Forever joins its hands
  • With heaven hell's attainment
  • In a surging crest of fire
  • Where more than all is thrown upon
  • The ever lasting pyre
  • And through the countless canticles
  • Of Jason's charcoal fleece
  • Are sung the songs of nothing
  • In the timeless masterpiece
  • And there stood in the middle
  • Guess who?
  • It's the everlasting burst
  • Built by god's very own whiteman
  • As he tries to rule the dust
  • And I hate the whiteman
  • In his doctrinaire abuse
  • Oh I hate the whiteman
  • And the man who turned you all loose...
  • And the bowels of his city
  • Have been locked into a safe
  • Where the spew stains on the sidewalks
  • Are defenders of his faith
  • While back inside his kitchen
  • The bowler hatted, long haired saint
  • Cleans with soap and water
  • But it's really just white paint
  • While his golden headed scandal sheets
  • Present their daily bite
  • To give their righteous news-bleeders
  • Drugs to keep them white
  • While outside in the whitewash
  • Where the guns are always, always right
  • A shooting star has summoned
  • Its dark angel from his night
  • And I hate the whiteman
  • And his evergreen excuse
  • Oh I hate the whiteman
  • And the man who turned you all loose
  • And the man who turned him loose...
