Viva Beta Band

Lyrics to Beta Band, "Eclipse"

The people asking questions to the people with the answers -
The people with the answers are the people with the questions -
So the people with the questions ask the people with the answers,
But the people with the answers won't tell the people with the questions the answers.

So the people with the questions, they ask the people with the answers,
but the people with the answers won't speak to them.

Because the people with the answers deem the people with the questions just a little bit too hoity-toity to speak to.

I'm a man who likes to be alone
I'm a man who likes to think alone
I don't have too many answers but I've got a whole heap of questions
I've got a whole heap of questions that I won't hide from you

(So long, don't smile, you can't hide)???

So, the people with the books, they went and stood upon the mountain to get away from the people with no books.
The people with the books, they started reading on the mountain but they couldn't see a thing because the sky went dark.

I don't know where the cloud cover came from;
I'm just sitting here rocking on the station.
I don't want to be the type of guy who lives alone, reading books and never eats a pizza pie.
Ahh....

(don't wanna be the type of person to sit alone with a book on my own

with a book on my own
with a book on my own)

The people with the questions got together with the people with the books and left the people with the answers out.

So the people with the answers started to mingle up the hill to meet with the people with the questions and the people with the books.

And we all live together on a little round ball
We all sing together when the cuckoo calls
We all live together on a little round ball
We all sing together when the cuckoo calls

I'm not the type who's living alone
You and me live together? Well, I don't know...

I'm not sitting here giving you a lesson
So I'll just keep my mouth shut in just a few minutes...

Can't keep quiet for long, I'm a human being
Can't help singing this song, I'm a human being

You wanna listen to me? I'm not in authority.

So the people with the answers met the people with the questions and the people with the books sat down.
And they finally decided to sit around and talk about their problems, to see if they could come up with some answers to meet the questions and the questions to meet the answers...

Well the leaves on the trees are green (Yeah, we agree on that)
And the roads are not very clean (OK, we agree on that)
And the food we eat is not very healthy (OK, we're agreed on that)
And the music we make is not particularly good (...OK, we're agreed on that)
And the planets sort of revolve around the sun (Ok, we got that)
And the moon is a big ball with nothing on it, and I don't think anyone's ever been there (OK, so I kind of agree with that, so what are we arguing about?)(Um, I don't know)(OK, so let's get together and smoke a pizza pie!)

So with the people with the pizza pie made me very high...
The people with the questions smiled, and the people with the answers lied...
They lied...
So no pizza for them.
