Can’t get clean in dirty water
Doves won’t fly on wings of hope
Is it time to kiss goodbye, oh lover
As the jailer stands to hang another rope
Bottled courage holds us down down down
And the carrots grab them try try try
From the bottom of your pirate’s heart
There’s a little thing that makes soul smile

Heard you callin’ on your goddess
Round the fire at the devil’s hop
Kid you better get your kicks in
Either that or grab a molotov

Gonna put your hands in
Despite of all the pain
Gonna make love standing
Oh it’s ours to gain

When you’re drunk you get so careless love
See you rollin’ on the floor
But they’re tearing down the forest outside
And they say they need it all

Gonna make love standing
Up against this wall
Of the flames they’re fanning
Gonna watch it fall

I count on all the lovers
Standing side by side
(Gonna make love standing)
To dream a dream beyond the wildest dreamt at night
On account of all our problems
(Up against the wall)
‘Count of everything that makes us cry
(Gonna make love standing)
Maybe time to be the crisis
(Til we see it fall)
Past the time to fight with all our might

Love of Land not love of country
Love for things that life sustain
In your warrior tongue singing softly
Push the seeds through the soil
And wait for rain
But they’re poisoning the water
Then they bottle it and sell you lies
They’re not doing what they oughta
Tired of barkin baby time to bite

Gonna make love standing
Gonna take good aim
It’s your choice demand it
Gonna make it plain

So many good people are waiting to live free
(Gonna make love standing)
From madness suffered by a sick society
(Up against the wall)
And on account of how you are them
Easy answer to the question why
(Of the flames they’re fanning)
Maybe lawless but not loveless
Maybe lovers but still stand and fight

And on account of how you love them
And on account of how your side by side
Know you’re friends and know your power
Know that they we can begin to fly

Ee la ee la
Ee la ee laha
Ee la ee la
Ee la ee la ha
