barbarian lyrics – inxs

first there’s nothing
takes a long time
piece by piece
it comes together

he makes drawings
turns them into real things
simple paintings
of caves long ago

just like a game
always a winner
but he works hard
surprise to himself

a lot of people
bent on the future
set up the countries
closing all the doors

now he thinks big
thinks he’s come a long way
but we all know
long long way to go

he’s lonely
he’s the only one
