about

This track is about the contrast between the feelings of freedom and love in the south compared to the feelings of control and coldness in the north

lyrics

The radio is quiet
the blender just jumped back on the shelf
The phones will not be ringing
unless they take to talking to themselves

I know I'd come this way again
but now it seems to soon
And anyone with any sense
would be howling at the moon

Machines have taken over
and my love for life is living in Cancun

Winding up the streets
the anaconda buses slither past
Staring through the sheets of rain
I wonder where I've come
and why so fast

I know I'd come this way again
but now it seems to soon
And anyone with any sense
would be howling at the moon

Machines have taken over
and my love for life is living in Cancum

Our love was oh so quiet
on the beach where the children
came to play
There we signed a truce in sand
that you would be the first
to go away
I loved your being perfectly
but the city was all that I knew
I asked that you would wait for me
But waiting was never for you

Machines have taken over
and my love for life is living in Cancun

The strength of the land and the water that connects us all depends on how well we are able to "sing in this land"- and how well we can respect the whole. ... more
