"The Conflict" as written by Rupert Hine and Jeanette Therese Obstoj....
You can't deal with the problem on the surface anymore
Go for the root -
And put your boot in the door
Knock down the walls

And get right to the core
Go for the root
Brush off the dust when you find it
Now's the time to explore

Go for the root
It's the conflict between fact and meaning
I'm living proof
And you can't scale the walls

'Cause there's an armed guard on the roof
Go for the root
Just found a crack in the foundations
We'll drill ourselves a way

Right to the root
Brush off the dust when you find it
Now's the time to explore
Go for the root

You can't deal with the problem on the surface anymore
Go for the root
It's the conflict between fact and meaning
I'm living proof

When you watch the starving thousands
On the channel of your choice my friend
You're an audience for war
But you're always switching sides

It's like looking at a landscape
Through a microscope in the middle of the night -
Even half a revolution
Would only bring you light

Go for the root
You're so messed up by politics lady
There's nothing exotic in poverty
Go for the root

Where do you get your information
From a dream or a twenty four inch screen
Brush off the dust when you find it
Now's the time to explore

Go for the root
You can't deal with the problem on the surface anymore
Go for the root
