THE RACE OF TAN


I think I look at you
I think you’re looking back you’re looking back at me
What do you see
The light is falling differently upon the things
The things we think we think we think we see
The way we see
The way in which we think we see
The way we think we see
We think that we can read into each other’s play


Today you say today you say is just like any other day
Like any other day we oh so often oh too often say
Like any other day for you
Any other day for me
That’s as may that’s as may
That’s as may well be
But that’s not quite the same as any
Any any any any any any any any other day
Whatever way you choose to say
Whichever way you try to sway
Any other day for me or you or anybody anywhere
Anybody anywhere another day for me for you
That’s not the same as any other day
For anybody else anybody anywhere
In any given any given
Any given hemisphere


What is it we see you and me
Seemingly together why is it that we
We don’t see eye to eye
Our fathers and our mothers
Those before them all felt just the same
No matter where I look it seems that all that we can ever do is blame


In every corner every corner of this sad and tired earth
No matter what our colour no matter what we feel that we are worth
Exactly who’s to say just where just where
Just where there is a dearth


One day all this will merge into an even tan
One shade one colour for the race the race
The race of man
One shade one colour
The race the race
The race of tan
One shade one colour the race the race
The race of tan


Who is to say who is to say just which just which is worse
To live indifferently or judge another man upon the contents of his purse
And just on what
Just on what can we in truth agree
As yet not on a common meaning
Common definition of just what it means here to be free


We shall be forced to look into the souls of all our fellow men
With no discrepancy of colour
No excuse the race of tan
Only one shade
Only one shade one shade of man
One shade the race
One shade the race
One shade the race of tan


One day all this will merge into an even tan
One shade one colour for the race the race
The race of man
One shade one colour
The race of tan


In every corner every corner of this sad and tired earth
No matter what our colour no matter what we feel that we are worth
Just where just where is there a dearth

One day all this will merge into an even tan
One shade one colour for the race of man
One shade one colour
The race of tan
The race of tan
The race of man
One shade one colour
The race of tan
