The Sowing The Seeds of Love Songfacts says: Written by Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith, the lyrics in this song are a byproduct of Orzabal's interest in psychology and philosophy - he cites Sartre's Les Mains Sales and Arthur Janov's Primal Scream as literary influences. The song is a call to action, asking us to reject the status quo: "High time we made a stand and shook up the views of the common man."
High time we made a stand
And shook up the views of the common man
The love train rides from coast to coast
D.J.'s the man we love the most
