Put Our Hearts Together - Bruce Cockburn

    Don't need the everlasting trade expansion
    Don't need the cold white heroin breath
    Don't need Pizzarro or the Inquisition
    No berserk worship of a hero's death
    Don't need reactionary politicians
    Don't need the gunfight at the O.K.
    Don't need no Reverend Paisley hate-masturbation
    Don't need no Jihad or no IRA

    We need to put our hearts together
    Set up a rhythm in combination
    And if we put our hearts together
    We get a rhythm that will shake creation

    Who needs supremacy of pink people
    There's no such thing as a pure racial strain
    It takes all colours to make a rainbow
    Takes every part to make a working brain
    The whole of history is a growing together
    If you want pure, you're gonna have caves again
    Anyway who needs a geek like the Grand Dragon
    So full of shit his breath makes acid rain

    We need to...

    Woman-in-kitchen, man-in-palace
    Worshipping the performance of the phallus
    Gaming for power till their hearts grow callous
    As if a human's just an animal with malice
    Limp lance, phallocrat, finger on the trigger
    God ahead and stay small while everything gets bigger
    It's a bully's game and I don't want to play
    Why don't you think about the better way

    We need to...

    (St. Vincent  3/1/83)
