Black Man Ray Lyrics

Are we believing
Black man ray
Are we not happy
In our own way
And we the people
Who reason why
Forever change
As time goes by

Yes, yes, I could be wrong
Why, why, should I pretend
'Cause God only knows in the end

Are we believing
The heavenly survive
Faith the future
Big life on their side
And we the people
Who can but try
Forever learn
As time goes by Yes, yes, I could be wrong
Why, why, should I pretend
'Cause God only knows in the end

Are we believing
Black man ray
Persuasive danger
In everything you say
And we the people
Who answer you why
Forever doubt
As time goes by

Yes, yes, I could be wrong
Why, why, should I pretend
Yes, yes, I could be wrong
Why, why, should I pretend
'Cause God only knows in the end

Thoughts & Meanings

I read somewhere that "Man Ray was a surrealist photographer in the 20's - He did some cool stuff with photo-montage" but I can't see the connection to this song. Anther site says "Ray was a Liverpool man of Nigerian descent who managed an Arts Based Youth Training Scheme in the late 70’s to mid 80’s. The premises he ran offered young groups – China Crisis among them – the chance to rehearse and record. However, petulant youth quite often conflicted with authority, which helped set up more than one crisis." Who knows. But it seems to me that they are questioning the value of "Faith" in an afterlife. Are they perhaps saying that religious doctrine is "Persuasive danger in everything you say"?
