Oh-ooh...

Take me 2 the vineyards of Lavaux
I wanna see the mountains where the waters flow
Life back home depresses me, just another form of slavery
The cost of freedom is anything but free

I don't care if they're all covered with snow
I don't care if the road is narrow, if it is I'll know
If it was always meant 2 b, still n love I must believe
Whatever path I choose will lead me home
Lead me home
Lavaux

Take me 2 the streets of Portugal
That might b my destiny 2 see the waterfall
Tears or rain, they're all the same, the only way 2 win this game
Is 2 let everybody play and share the ball

There ain't nobody got no chains on me (They got no chains on me)
I'm flyin' higher than any mountain and deeper than any sea
A paradox is box's key, I am the why n mystery
And U're gonna unlock the secrets if U please
If U please
Oh

Come take me 2 an assembly n New York
2 speak of a brand new everlasting wonder war
2 win or lose is so absurd
And the only casualty's the Word, the Word

A revolution time has come 2day
Cuz if took a black face 2 see the same decay
Like the chocolate of Vevey, n the sun they'll melt away
But as 4 me, I'll laugh and go 2 the mountains where the waters flow
Back 2 the vineyards of Lavaux, Lavaux, Lavaux, Lavaux
Lavaux
