lyrics

Plan For Peace (W.Sony)

I shook the water from my hands
Ran my fingers through your hair.
We put our towels on the sand,
The sun was hot,
your hands were everywhere.
Aeroplanes fall from the sky,
like hungry gulls they dive into the sea.
Memories erased by drugs,
I lost my voice amongst the flood debris.
Friends and lovers move away
In times of war, they go overseas
Like flying fish they spring to mind
Let's make a pipe for peace

I read some books and write a song
but some people asked me to change a verse
About how God and Jesus Christ
were with Verwoerd and teaching him how to surf.
Offending covers torn away
In times of war censorship increase
Soldier boy cleans his gun and says
This is my plan for peace

Friends and lovers move away
In times of war they go overseas
Like flying fish they spring to mind
Let's make a pipe for peace

Even angels fall from grace
in this wasted land.
God, I love her so,
I can’t relax without a drink.
Give me excess give me more
and more and more...

I drove the Jag from Cowies Hill
while my folks were away in Greece.
We had a party on the lawn
but the neighbours called the police.
My Stalin shirt and Che beret
bought in London in the wild West End
Were high fashion over there
but the boere weren’t impressed

Friends and lovers move away
In times of war they go overseas
Like flying fish they spring to mind
Let's make a pipe for peace
Soldier boy cleans his gun and says
This is my plan for peace
