Inevitable Consequence Of Progress Lyrics

Chopper standing in the clearing, fuelled and ready to ride
Captain in the doorway, telling us to step inside
last minute check, all weapons set
parachute and right 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 --
in the judgement 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 the 'ship overhead
Such a wierd 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."
Inevitable Consequence of Progress --
is what he said to me
inevitable Consequence of Progress --
in the judgement of history
inevitable Consequence of Progress --
going to change your destiny
And I felt 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 the fear to subside
and for the sun to make me warm again
"Live and let live" -- step into real life,
step into the lifeline boy
