Take the long train to Bombay
Duck as the tunnels came
Tune in your crystal set
You've won the freedom to forget
You've won the freedom to forget

Feeling good migrations
Tuned in to the mother nation
Taking her aim
Changing your name

Now we're nomads that stay in one place
Not a country, not a face
Standing out but we're like ghosts
Long-term guests, ungracious hosts

Re-written history, a sleepy slavery
Those sweet sweet sweet machines
Sniffling, selling

Good migrations
Tuned in to the mother nation
Taking her aim
Changing your name

Taking her aim
Changing your name

The nine year old boy who had wanted to be white
Set out on the journey from loneliness to pride
Hostile environments along the way
A slowly changing landscape

But a steady stream of consciousness rising
A steady stream of consciousness rising
This is the journey from loneliness to pride
No longer any need to hide

Struggle to live and we cry struggle to survive
Struggla, struggla, struggla, struggla just to stay alive
'Cause inside the jungle [Incomprehensible] you do or you die
And you got to be aware, you got to have the jungle eye

Oh man, you got to have the jungle eye
Struggla, struggla, struggla just to stay alive
Inside the jungle [Incomprehensible] you do or you die
Just to stay alive, oh man, just to stay alive

Struggle to live and we cry struggle to survive
Struggla, struggla, struggla, struggla just to stay alive
'Cause inside the jungle [Incomprehensible] you do or you die
Man, you got to be aware, you got to have the jungle eye
Oh man, you got to have the jungle eye

Struggla, struggla, struggla, struggla just to stay alive
Inside the jungle [Incomprehensible] you do or you die
Oh man, you got to be aware
You got to have the jungle eye

Steady stream of consciousness rising
Steady stream of consciousness rising
Steady stream of consciousness rising
This is the journey from loneliness to pride
Nomads can stay in loneliness
Standing out still like ghost
No longer any need to hide
