Traffic

Traffic were an English rock band, formed in Birmingham. The group was formed in April 1967 by Steve Winwood, Jim Capaldi, Chris Wood and Dave Mason. They began as a psychedelic rock group and diversified their sound through the use of instruments such as keyboards like the Mellotron and harpsichord, sitar, and various reed instruments, and by incorporating jazz and improvisational techniques in their music. Their first three singles were "Paper Sun", "Hole in My Shoe", and "Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush". more »

Well, you told me you were sorry, when I needed your advice
And I was too confused to see the meaning
Like Peter, you disowned me with a voice as cold as ice
And before the fire died and they were leaving.

I'm a means to an end and everybody's friend
To a rich man, poor man, beggar man or thief
From my heart I send a messenger to bend
And take your mind from agony and grief.

Oh, sweet silence without kings and queens
No one here has ever reached your centre
Better to be quiet than to speak without a thought
Or you may lose the meaning of your venture.

I'm a means to an end and everybody's friend
To a rich man, poor man, beggar man or thief
From my heart I send a messenger to bend
And take your mind from agony and grief.
