The careers of Morrison pere et fils will be an interesting footnote in some latter-day "Decline Of The West". A fascinating sound - but the sound of collapsing pillars, of destruction not creation. Will anyone be listening to it in fifty years ?
"Love Power" sounds as if it was inspired by "When The Music's Over" - but it has to be said young Jim was better-looking than Lorenzo. See what you think.
What have we done to the earth?
What have we done to our fair sister?
Ravaged and plundered and ripped her and bit her
Stuck her with knives in the side of the dawn
And tied her with fences and ...
Dragged her down
And I give a flower to the big fat cop
He takes his club and he beats me up
I give a flower to the garbage man
He stuffs my girl in the garbage can
And I give it to the landlord when the rent comes round
He throws it in the toilet and he flush it down
It goes into the sewer
Where the yuck running through her
And it runs into the river that we drink
Hey world you stink !
Man it's later than you think !
You don't think about the little flowers
On no, all you think about is guns
If everybody in the world today had a flower instead of a gun
There would be no wars.
