"Carry Me" as written by John Melville Lee Archer, Geoffrey Franklin Crosby, Douglas James Falconer, Robert David Miles, Mark Jeremy Seymour, Michael Bernard Waters and John Albert Howard....
When you're standing by the road side
And it's a long way to go
Oh to carry me
To carry me
Carry me
Carry me friend
Oh to carry me

And together in this mad land
Far from the truest of hands
Well I'll carry you
If you'll carry me
Carry me
Carry me friend
Oh carry me

And we'll patrol bomb the state
We blow away the hate
But we'll do it in our mind
If we can take the time
We build ourselves a road
From what we know
Each take our parts
But now's the time to start
Oh yeah it is
Oh we must be
Oh we must be
Oh we must be

But Jane is takin' heroin
And Paul is getting pissed
Steve is getting stoned
And to fucked to fight
Sara's on the acid
And Sean has blown his mind
Someone's busy hiding
To fucked to fight
Yeah some have found religion
And some have run away
And some they form a party to find a way

Yeah some they join the system
And some just look away
But some must bite their backsides
To find a way

And there is a way why
es there is a way
Yes there is a way

When you're standing by the road side
And it's a long way to go
Well I'll carry you
If you'll carry me
Carry me
Carry me friend
Well I'll carry you

    General CommentIt's about the band struggling to survive, and possibly about them and the struggle of travellers in general against the 'system' or the Government. They will pull together to get through (and maybe have a few tinnies....and some drugs also in the process). Great song, one of my fave Levellers songs.

    My InterpretationConsidering the number of people mentioned, I'd guess it's a larger group than a band. It sounds to me like an activist group finding it hard to stick to their cause. It's pretty hard to live knowing all the shit that's going on in the world, so depression and suicide are common. Some try to escape (by doing drugs). A few hope to change the system from within by forming a party (Greens?)

    It also says "mad land" (the world right now) and that there's a long way to go. We can only get there if we stick together and support each other. Cuz it's not easy to fight against a system and impossible to do it alone.
