I forgot. Adam Ant did one.
Good title "The Human Beings"...
not so much going on lyrically.


The human beings, oh
The human beings, oh

Incantations * Mike Olfield

Hiawatha's Departure

Extract from "The Song of Hiawatha"
Chapter XII & XXII
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Vocals: Maddy Prior


By the shores of Gitche Gumee,
By the shining Big-Sea-Water,
At the doorway of the wigwam,
In the early Summer morning,

Hiawatha stood and waited.
All the air was full of freshness,
All the earth was bright and joyous,
And before him, through the sunshine,

Westward toward the neighboring forest
Passed in golden swarms the Ahmo,
Passed the bees, the honey-makers,
Burning, singing in the sunshine.

Bright above him shone the heavens,
Level spread the lake before him;
From its bosom leaped the sturgeon,
Sparkling, flashing in the sunshine;

On its margin the great forest
Stood reflected in the water,
Every tree-top had its shadow,
Motionless beneath the water.

From the brow of Hiawatha
Gone was every trace of sorrow,
As the fog from off the water,
As the mist from off the meadow.

With a smile of joy and gladness,
With a look of exultation,
As of one who in a vision
Sees what is to be, but is not,

Stood and waited Hiawatha.
Toward the sun his hands were lifted,
Both the palms spread out toward it,
And between the parted fingers

Fell the sunshine on his features,
Flecked with light his naked shoulders,
As it falls and flecks an oak-tree
Through the rifted leaves and branches.

O'er the water floating, flying,
Something in the hazy distance,
Something in the mists of morning,
Loomed and lifted from the water,

Now seemed floating, now seemed flying,
Coming nearer, nearer, nearer.
Was it Shingebis the diver?
Or the pelican, the Shada?

Or the heron, the Shuh-shuh-gah?
Or the white goose, Waw-be-wana,
With the water dripping, flashing,
From its glossy neck and feathers?

It was neither goose nor diver,
Neither pelican nor heron,
O'er the water floating, flying,
Through the shining mist of morning,

But a birch canoe with paddles,
Rising, sinking on the water,
Dripping, flashing in the sunshine;
And within it came a people

(The Son of the Evening Star)

Can it be the sun descending
O'er the level plain of water?
Or the Red Swan floating, flying,
Wounded by the magic arrow,

Staining all the waves with crimson,
With the crimson of its life-blood,
Filling all the air with splendor,
Filling all the air with plumage?

Yes; it is the sun descending,
Sinking down into the water;
All the sky is stained with purple,
All the water flushed with crimson!

No; it is the Red Swan floating,
Diving down beneath the water;
To the sky its wings are lifted,
With its blood the waves are reddened!

Over it the Star of Evening
Melts and trembles through the purple,
Hangs suspended in the twilight,
Walks in silence through the heavens.

Indigenous - Things We Do
(Written by Mato Nanji)

As I close my eyes
A dream comes to me
Of the wind blowing leaves
And whisper to me oh yeah

Ooh said it should've never been this way
Now we don't wanna go back
To the way we were
The way we were

Beneath her lonely soul
Her heart has turned to stone
Because of the things we do
And we don't wanna change
The things we do

Ooh said it should've never been this way
Now we don't wanna go back
To the way we were
The way we were

("Her" could refer to a physical person, or to "Mother Nature", or to a divinity that preserves Native American traditions. I've always heard this song as being about a personal relationship, being about the environment, and as being a song about Native Americans BY Native Americans.)

A little soothing flute music, native American style...

Music originating from the Shoshone people of western North America, the music being performed by flute and rattling percussion.
