Chopper standing in the clearing, fuelled and ready to ride
Captain in the doorway, telling us to step inside
Last minute check, all weapons set, parachute and right sight
Going to drop in on the jungle and grease some stone age tribe
The 'sarge jokes about taking out the last link to his troubled past
As we hit the canopy. I feel a shadow across my heart

Chorus :
Inevitable consequence of progress
Is what he said to me
Inevitable consequence of progress
In the judgement of history
Inevitable consequence of progress
Going (to) change your destiny
Inevitable consequence of progress
And I felt the sun, sun, sun
The sun, sun, sun going down on me

The pilot pulled the chopper around and we got into position
We made all the right moves, And there wasn't any real opposition
Crazy tribesmen shooting arrows at the 'ship overhead
Such a wierd spectacle the 'sarge he smiled and he said
"There's a new world coming and there ain't no place for them
Don't feel sad, son, for what history has condemned."

Chorus :
Inevitable consequence of progress
Is what he said to me
Inevitable consequence of progress
In the judgement of history
Inevitable consequence of progress
Going (to) change your destiny
Inevitable consequence of progress
And I knew the sun, sun, sun
The sun, sun, sun had gone down on me

I've been waiting for the clouds to clear
I've been waiting for the dawn
I've been waiting for the fear to subside
waiting for the sun to make me warm again

Live and let live
Live and let live a little
Step into real life,
Eh ya - Eh vilada
Step into real life, into the lifeline boy
Into real life, step the lifeline boy
Come on, come on, come on, step into the real life
Come on, come on, step in true life
Come on, come on, step or you die
