When the rhythm calls the government falls Here come the cops
From Tokyo to Soweto viva la musica pop We are black & white
and we dance all night down at the hop and the letters were tall
on the Berlin Wall viva la musica pop so if you're feeling low
stuck in some bardo I, even I know the solution
love, music, wine and revolution love, love, love music, wine and revolution
This too shall pass so raise your glass to change and chance
and freedom is the only law shall we dance...

    My InterpretationPretty sure its about the endless existence of love... something chemical that has existed for all time and has driven virtually all live to keep existing (in this case humans)

    White and black as an allusion to yin and yang, which if you think about it... is just basically a glorified 69, I put these dots together some point looking at the album cover

    Another angel of this is how the world itself can mirror love/ relationships "love music wine and revolution" especially in revolutions.. hella people die, hella change is so instantaneously sort of like changing/dying relationships but they are only transitions and love (as some unspoken force that drives humanity forward) remains and the majority after succeeding are a bit happier(?)

    Who knows
