Lyrics

Cool Calm Co-Existence

Splints and black stitches?
Casts of white plaster?
There's nothing would repair
This man's personal disaster
Over-and-above fair wear and tear
Wretched pain in his heart
Deep dark doubts in his mind
He shook his head and asked me
Why has life been so unkind?

He confided his philosophy of life
Was compromise and steering clear of strife
With nothing black, nothing white
No totally wrong, no totally right
In a peaceful world of cool calm co-existence
Equality from end to end
With life delivering what we send
In a gracious space of cool calm co-existence
A precious place of cool calm co-existence


Walking frames and sticks?
Electric wheel-chairs?
There's nothing could restore
This man's dream to scale those stairs
That lift you off ground floor
Wretched pain in his heart
Deep dark doubts in his mind
He shook his head and asked me
Why should life be so unkind?

Bridge:
The philosophy of life he expressed to me
With humble passion
Dawned on me how cool calm co-existence
Is out of fashion
Too old-fashioned
And opinions locked on being clear black or white
Is why our modern world today's
A mad arena, stadium for a fight
All over, all about us
No in-between
No settling-scene
No compromise to totally wrong and right

Splints and black stitches?
Casts of white plaster?
There's nothing would repair
This man's personal disaster
Over-and-above fair wear and tear
Wretched pain in his heart
Deep dark doubts in his mind
He shook his head and asked me
Why has life been so unkind?
Yeah yeah, he shook his head and asked me
Why has life been so unkind

Yeah, yeah
He confided his philosophy of life
Was compromise and steering clear of strife
Where nothing's black, nothing's white
No totally wrong, no totally right
In a peaceful world of cool calm co-existence
Equality from end to end
With life delivering what we send
In a gracious space of cool calm co-existence
A precious place of cool calm co-existence
Cool and calm yeah yeah
Cool and calm yeah yeah
Cool and calm yeah
Cool
Calm
Co-existence
