We Will See

Written By: Adrian Davies

We Will See

I don’t believe in a war for peace
I don’t believe in the news we eat
I don’t believe in towing the line
I don’t believe that everything’s fine

When I met this world
There was so much to learn
And now I see why
The sky is blue
Everyone learns
To forget their affairs
When the sun is
Shining on you

I don’t believe the cost to survive
I don’t believe that greed is alive
I don’t believe the political man
I don’t believe we can’t turn this around

When you awake
What do you do
Do you give your love
To those near you
Or rise
To quietly stir
And get ready for work
To further drift and concur

I’ve seen my brothers and myself get high
I’ve seen my family and friends die
I’ve seen a man strangle a girl
I’ve seen the horrors of this cruel world

When will we stop
Being so meek
And learn to stand
With communal feet
I don’t have time
For vacant words
Even animals know
Rhetoric’s absurd

I’ve seen the love in your eyes
I’ve seen us wilt when in disguise
I’ve seen the magic of the natural world
I love oceans when they swell and swirl

This is our time
And we can be free
So choose wisely
What you believe
I’m only talking
Through an old guitar
But like you in me
I hope it fills your heart © Adrian Davies 2006

Peelin Potatoes

Written By: Adrian Davies

Peelin Potatoes

A peasant I be
A peasant I be
Peelin potatoes
Peelin potatoes
Peelin potatoes
A peasant I be
Peelin potatoes
Peelin potatoes
All I bin doin is peelin potatoes
Let’s go for a walk outside
It would be lovely
Oo, Oo
Let’s go make love
Under the palm tree
Oo, Oo
Peelin potatoes
I’m sick of peelin those fuckin damn potatoes
Peelin potatoes
I don’t wanna peel no more
Fuck those, fuck the potatoes
Oh, I’ve got ideas man
I can’t just sit here and peel potatoes
You know
We’ve gotta do things
I mean we only get one shot at it
And I’m sittin here
Peelin fuckin potatoes
Is this ridiculous or what
I’m just sick of it
Come on
Let’s do something
Instead of peelin potatoes
No, we can’t do it
I can’t
Peel potatoes
I’ve done it enough
Let’s stop
Let’s just stop
Peelin potatoes
We’ve gotta stop
Peelin those fucking potatoes
No more potatoes
Fry ‘em
