Robert Plant – Takamba lyrics

Sing a song of freedom - write it in the sky
A pocket full of secrets - a belly full of lies
A fiction to believe in, created then denied

Tricks and mirror - sleight of hand
Hula hula - promised land
Rhyme and reason - smoke and fire
Hula hula - truth and lie

Hail the gift of memory in this fifty-second state
Who sold me down the river and shafts me while he waits
Outside the gates of Eden, star-spangled and so late

Tricks and mirror [etc repeated]
