INEVITABLE CONSEQUENCE OF PROGRESS

 

Chopper standing in the clearing, fueled and ready to ride

Captain in the doorway, telling us to step inside

last minute check, all weapons set,

parachute and night sight

going to drop in on the jungle

and grease some stone age tribe

The ‘sarge jokes about taking out the last link

to his troubled past

as we hit the canopy, I feel a shadow across my heart

 

CHORUS:

Inevitable consequence of progress -

is what he said to me

Inevitable consequence of progress -

is the judgment of history

Inevitable consequence of progress -

going to change your destiny

And I felt the sun, sun, sun, the Son, Son, Son

going down on me.

 

The pilot pulled the chopper around

and we got into position

we made all the right moves and

there wasn’t any real opposition

Crazy tribesmen, shooting arrows at ship overhead

Such a weird spectacle -

the ‘sarge, he smiled and he said:

“There’s a new world coming and

there ain’t no place for them -

Don’t feel sad son, for what history has condemned.”

 

CHORUS:

Inevitable consequence of progress -

is what he said to me

Inevitable consequence of progress -

is the judgment of history

Inevitable consequence of progress -

going to change your destiny

And I knew the sun, sun, sun, the Son, Son, Son

had gone down on me.

 

BRIDGE:

I’ve been waiting for the clouds to clear

I’ve been waiting for the dawn

I’ve been waiting for this fear to subside

and for the sun to make me warm again

 

“Live ‘n let live” - step into real life

step into the lifeline boy!
