Take your psychic airplane
High above the city
Look down on the black veins
With their clots of steel
Look down on the money man
Thinks that he gets there faster
Poor Mr Commuter Man
Stuck behind a wheel

Is there a sweeter feeling hidden in the heart of it
Suppressed in case the water level rose
Is there a deeper healing charity no part of it
Somewhere Where The Dirty Flows

Take your psychic airplane
Take it high up above this country
Look down on the farmland
On the bitter fields
Look down on the farming man
Ploughing endless furrows
Poor old agricultural
Worrying over yields

Is there a deeper healing, hidden in the heart of it ...

Take your psychic airplane
Take it high up above this planet
Look down on the rivers
Flowing into seas
And look down on the short love
That we give to the poor and the needy
Given out like wire
To the down at heel

Is there a sweeter feeling ...
