Hopeful

Hopeful is a song by Psi Com.

From the liner notes of Worktape 1

One of the earliest of Psi Com songs, Hopeful has undergone several drastic transformations to reach its present quasi-final form. The music is deceptively happy, both cynical and optimistic. Perry attacks spiritual bombast and hypocrisy with a brazen, third world-style vocal, a hopeful chant in the wasteland.

Lyrics

Me take-a-me-hide away shake in de tonal imply
When me cover it over me know again it will rise

To be the one picked to go…
To be the one picked to go…

See the sun in orange flame darken as the aramite
Walks among the shadows of ourselves
We play-

Love/Demiser
Love/Demiser
Love/Demiser
Love/Demiser…

Me sin-a-me weigh-a-me supper me pay for me lie
Me see-a-me know-a-me pray now me feel purified

To be the one picked to go…
To be the one picked to go…

Follow me now take the crux profit from your suffering
Pay the tithe and wash away your sin

Love/Demiser
Love/Demiser
Love/Demiser
Love/Demiser…

I do unto you
That done unto me
Now, now that it’s done
I, I have become
