Get The Picture – Lyrics

They’re dying to protect and save the animal world
While humans are still killing their young

Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.
Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.

[Tabla and thavil solos by Kiribakaran and Prakash Kandasamy, with bass by David Ah Wah]

The rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm, ooooh
The rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm, ooooh

[Intro with rhythmic vocals by Kirubakaran and tabla by Prakash Kandasamy]

They are believers of the new age
Buyers and sellers of the positive way
Ambitious, over-motivated muscle man
But still suicide’s the theme of the day
How come fantasy can work out the problem
When reality the mind won’t choose
From “They lived happily ever after,”
To “Beware! It’s the evening news.”

Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.
Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.

[Electric keyboard solo by Allan Perera]

A newborn baby everybody loves
It’s the sweetest sight in the world
Distort the picture, show a starving child
You’ll see a many a heart turn cold
Hide the protectors of the innocent
Behind the scenes with praises unsung
They’re dying to protect and save the animal world
While humans are still killing their young

Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.
Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.

[Electric guitar solo by Jamie Wilson]

Everybody pities a beggar
But they complain that he’s asking too much
Higher education brought devastation
There were some things we shouldn’t have touched
Invest your money in the future son
Deal with poverty but not so soon
I guess man have tried and failed to save the earth
Now they’re trying to live on the moon!

Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.
Do you get the picture? (…get the picture …get the picture?)
It’s a living contradiction.

A violation is an often used term
By the un-involved who want to stay firm
The tongue of the diplomat has never really tasted any hunger
Procedure hasn’t taken its turn
Legislature is still ruling the world
Poetry with a passion
While the dancer is still sticking to the rhythm
Sticking to the rhythm

[Tabla and thavil solos by Kiribakaran and Prakash Kandasamy, with bass by David Ah Wah]

The rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm, ooooh
The rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm, ooooh
The rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm, ooooh
The rhythm, the rhythm, the rhythm,
From the rhythm to the blu-ueess, yeah

[Musical interlude with electric guitar solo by Jamie Wilson, electric keyboard by Allan Perera, and background vocals]
