Rainbow Parade

"With the open road ahead
I stayed in your bed for a night.
With the open road ahead
Don't believe the lies we are fed.

In the background of a battle field
I can hear a synthesiser
and I can hear drums
and when I shut my eyes I can hear an orchestra playing

Wanderlust, Wanderlust
Following my feet as I keep dancing
down this endless street."

(Polly Scattergood, Wanderlust)

Finally the tables are starting to turn [@today's Turkish solidarity protests]

"Don't you know
They're talkin' bout a revolution
It sounds like a whisper

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know
You better run, run, run
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run

Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' bout a revolution"

(Tracy Chapman, Talkin' bout a revolution)
