Muscles (free) 03:53
I know you feel like an old man Weakened by the hand unseen Its grip is tight around your throat You cannot breathe, you cannot scream But there is a grace when you're on your knees You call his name And save your life Kiwi! Speak to him, ask him how to use your muscles Kiwi! It's easy, you will gain the power you're missing To save your life You did nothing wrong And you don't deserve this I can't comfort you Other than to say: I know sometimes you feel like nothing more than a link in a chain Rusted to a tanker lost out of harbour Steered by a madness you don't understand I know that you think you're done And they've won This is when you honour the seed sown into you by your mother And deliver the blow The crown was made to fit your head Trust me... Kiwi! Speak to him, ask him how to use your muscles Kiwi! It's easy, you will gain the power To save your life Kiwi! Amazing, how you've learnt to flex those muscles Get ready to be all you are And save your life

On a fine day If Mum says 'OK' I go walking out on the hills Where I can play Singing Kylie songs My friends, they wait for me They are white quadrupeds Eating lucerne leaves But here is where I'm gonna stay This is where I'll lay my head to rest I'll go to sleep on the shoulders of the Earth This is where you'll find me if you came looking I lost my voice I couldn't find it anywhere Hoki mai Return to me my voice But it would not come Until I asked the Kiwi Oh he told me: You'll find your voice In the kohanga And right here Right here in the sky above
