Shot, take it in. Shot of Indigo
Shot, take it in. Shot of Indigo
Shot, take it in. Shot of Indigo
Shot, take it in. Shot of Indigo
ooh, American Tale
What if we march us to the grave?
Or we make reason, an act of treason?
oi aye, ah ooooh....
Shot, take it in. Shot of Indigo
New World Scheme. Build but go slow...
(Higher life)
Shot, take it in. Shot of Indigo
New World Scheme. Build but go slow...
(Higher life)
American Tale
One hand free, one on the rail
What if we march us to the grave?
What if we make reason, an act of treason?
Fear drags Hope back to the cave...
Oi aye...take it in! Take it Indigo!
Shout, "take it out!" Shout, "the end!" and go for
Higher Life
Take it in! Take it Indigo!
New World Scheme, build, but go slow
(Higher Life)
Shot, take it in. Shot of Indigo
Shout, "take it out!" Shout, "the end!" and go for
Higher Life
Take it in! Shot of Indigo!
New World Scheme, build, but go slow
(Higher Life)

[CHORUS]

    General CommentBetter with the new lyric "What if we make freedom an act of treason?" (go Barry!), this is a Carbon Leaf classic. To me, this song is about a revolutionary attempt that went wrong, as they tend to do, and how hard it is to change a bad system into something new without being hypocritical.
