"Healing Festival" as written by and Tim Buckley....
Black tan brown and white
Repeat the order and we've tried
All the lovely little steps
That hope turn the eyes

And footsteps of you
Friend to lend for once
Behold that healing festival
Complete for an instant
The dance figure pure constellation

    General CommentI think this song is about the power of music to resolve conflict.

    Black and tan represent the conflict between Brits and Irish, while brown and white represent the obvious racial conflict. The "steps" help turn people's heads, and create the hope of others getting along. Ideally, humanity may come together in perfect form, as shown by the final line.
