See The Dawn



In the land of your father's father's father's father's father's father's home
I scaled this peak for you
I sailed the seven seas for you

I lay upon my back and let the sunshine pour all over me
I lay upon my back and let the sunshine pour all over me
I lay upon my back and let the sunshine pour all over me

In the land of the chosen lie the reasons
Your time will come, your river it will run
Summer skies will light your eyes

As some would say
It's apartheid in the USA
I know because I've seen it

Who's the best Nintendo player in the west ?
Now he's on his knees
But can't get blessed
Salman Rushdie only said it for the fame
Bring out your dead ones

Salman Rushdie "only said it for the fame" ? What's moving Dan Brown to put pen to paper ? The good of his heart ?

Salman Rushdie (1947 - ) is a British-Indian novelist and essayist. He achieved notability with his second novel, 'Midnight's Children', which won the Booker Prize in 1981. Much of his fiction is set on the Indian subcontinent, with a style often classified as magical realism mixed with historical fiction. A dominant theme of his work is the story of the many connections, disruptions and migrations between the Eastern and Western worlds. His fourth novel, 'The Satanic Verses' (1988), was the centre of a major controversy for its irreverent depiction of the prophet Muhammad, drawing protests from Muslims in several countries. Some of the protests were violent, in which death threats were issued to Rushdie, including a fatwa against him by Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the Supreme Leader of Iran, on 24th February 1989.

Following an Indian lead break, live versions would close with Goldfinger mimicking John Lennon's vocal from the end of 'Borrowed Time'.
