My heart is always in a state of revolution, Marching amongst the masses to the square The tanks are overturned, the midnight bonfires burn Oh, how I wish you could be there There is a riot 'neath this flannel membrane, Guantanamera in my heart And when the music plays, I storm the barricades So bright and constant when it starts By land and by sea, I am marching for thee To the beat of my defiant drum My heart is always in a state of revolution, When everyone's gone back to their lives The trains they run on time, the riot's in decline But down here in a bunker, there I hide My phalanx faded, leaving me exposed, I'm Stranded on a former battlefield But if there's music here, it's still for you my dear Is this revolution real? By land and by sea, I am marching for thee To the beat of my defiant drum

Grace, it don't come easy for me Narrow as a balance beam, I'm all over the place I flail when sadness sends me off the rails There's no moral to the tale, no patterns to trace Chopping down my bodhi tree Shaking the ground right under me Well I am surrendering To gravity Grace comes far too late to rescue me Just a Pyrrhic victory, leaves me in the cold After you, I've got no sunset to ride into I'd rather make the broken new, Turn a leaden love to gold I'm going up to outer space A holiday from the human race From memories that I cannot erase Am I up to the challenge of grace? Grace, it don't come easy to me
