This Is The Noise

(lyrics Karl Allison/music Alvin Allison & Simon Herbert)

 

 

Like chastised schoolboys hiding our freedom

Keep your arms down by your side.

Conservatismís what we came for

Youíre saying Jesus far too loud !

But we are sure we have the answer

This is how you join the dancer...

 

This is the noise that heralds a new creation

This is the noise of a gradual revolution

This is the noise - grannies dancing in the street

This is the noise - Scrooge shaking hands with all he meets

This is the noise - Police obeying the Highway Code

This is the noise - Mods helping ladies across the road

Full grown men with toys

This is the noise !

 

With rules no man has ever written

We act like robots - all the same.

Chains of fear and inhibition

Heís got to find our worship tame.

Weíve got to offer Him emotion

A formula for a magic potion...

 

This is the noise that heralds a new creation

This is the noise of a gradual revolution

This is the noise - grannies dancing in the street

This is the noise - Scrooge shaking hands with all he meets

This is the noise - Police obeying the Highway Code

This is the noise - Mods helping ladies across the road

Full grown men with toys

This is the noise !

 

Tradition seeks to hide the story

FREEDOM is the Gospel story

I hear them laugh and call my name

Just because Iím not the same.

Labels can destroy each other

Share my joy - be my brother...

 

This is the noise that heralds a new creation

This is the noise of a gradual revolution

This is the noise - grannies dancing in the street

This is the noise - Scrooge shaking hands with all he meets

This is the noise - Police obeying the Highway Code

This is the noise - Mods helping ladies across the road

Full grown men with toys

This is the noise !
