Going to the Desert

Going to the desert
Trying to remember your name
Pondering your gift
Was it all in vain


The three wise monkey's
Light up their spliff's
Human beings turn into lemmings
And gather at the cliff's


Going to the desert
Trying to remember your name
Pondering your gift
Was it all in Vain


Economists play a hot tune
As the blind mice dance
As the beat builds
Everyone is caught in a trance


Going to the desert
Trying to remember your name
Pondering your gift
Was it all in vain


The bankers want a pound of flesh
But they say they don't want blood
Tell that to the poor
When they gentrify their neighbourhood


Going to the desert
Trying to remember your name 
Pondering your gift
Was it all in vain


Lord above forgive  us
For our considerable  shame
We know not , what , we do
We just play the game


Going to the desert
Trying to remember your name
Pondering your gift
Was it all in vain
