Mushroom Cloud

There’s a mushroom cloud growing inside of my head. With so much stress that’s in the day,

I’m trying to land on my feet again.

So many things in this world seem out of control and most of the people out there have sold

out for gold.

All the saints and the sages, where have they gone? Will we ever listen to them or just watch

as things keep going wrong?

And the right wing fanatics that love Armageddon, they think we’ll all go up in smoke, with

Jesus and then off to heaven.

I think that they’re all out of their heads many of you out there do too. American family values,

money for missiles not for health or schools and being played for fools.

But things are very different now you may need to pee in a cup. Big brother is always watching

while the common man gets deeper and deeper cuts and the government’s up your butt.

I’m thinking back on better days when the youth thought they could change the world but now

can’t see through the purple haze. Thanks to prescription drugs we can all relax in a daze.

But we forgot history. It has always been the same. Push the people too far and comes

revolution so who can you blame now?

Greed and anger and foolishness bring down the world upon you and me here.

Don’t be seduced by promises that can’t be kept. There’ll be nothing left.

Why can’t we see the reality? Can you and me bring back sanity?

There’s a mushroom cloud growing inside of my head. With so

much stress that’s in the day, I’m trying to land on my feet again.

All the saints and the sages, where have they gone? Will we ever listen to them or just watch

as things keep going wrong?

Where have all the Hippies gone?

TV commercials looking like the news and the news is looking like a commercial.

I’ve got a question, what the hell are you trying to sell me? Now tell the truth. What in the

world are we going to do with this attitude. Inverted and distorted. It’s a perversion too.

Oh my.

Blinding our minds with the imposition of exaggerations. Inverted and distorted.

It’s a perversion too. Oh my.

In the name of God. In the name of liberty. Doesn’t matter what the cost, just as long as you

feel free. Can you really believe what you read and what’s on your TV? They say you gotta to

pay to play. That’s how we’ll write history. That’s history. My God’s better than your God. Don’t you know? My God’s better than your God. Don’t you

know it?

Where have all the hippies gone? The summer of love. The Berkeley students, they knew what

was going on. All the news that’s fit to print. Free speech will soon be gone. Democracy and

the Capitalists, now who’d you think has won. Looks like Exxon.

My God’s better than your God. Don’t you know? My God’s better than your God. Don’t you

know it?

Wanted to give peace a chance not live in a world of hate. But they sold the American dream.

China owns the United States.

My God’s better than your God. Don’t you know? My God’s better than your God. Don’t you

know it?

My God My God My God My God My God My God My God My God My God My God.

Oh My God!

America the beautiful, supermodel of the world, is falling asleep to reality TV. Seduced by

itself, by the aphrodisiac of power, bringing the whole wide world it’s liberty. Now freedom is

here to make you over. Freedom is here with it’s bullets and blunders spreading out like oil

upon the sea. And everyone wants a piece of the action. Deception, greed, insincerity. These

problems are too big to solve upon our knees. Now, where there’s smoke there’ll soon be fire.

You can’t smell it? This i can’t believe. Rome is burning down right in front of me. America the

beautiful, terror, fear and insanity; can you cure it all with cosmetic surgery?

 

 


 

 

We Believe

Try as we might, we are swimming against the tide. Can’t seem to release, let the illusion slip

away. And as the strength, feel it fade away. It would be better to let go. They say less is more

and you know it you’ve seen before. Can’t let the struggle, clouding our minds in the way. You

know in your heart there is a way. If we could let go things will fall in place.

Tangled up in the web of our fear. Tear through the doubt and fear disappears.

This precious life and its potential, there is a choice to see. There comes a time in the light or in

the darkness we can find a way to be free.

Tear through the doubt and fear disappears.

It’s in the heart of our confusion that we find clarity. We suffer loss and then rejuvenation and

we feel our life begin again.

Try as we might, we are swimming against the tide. Can’t seem to release, let the illusion slip

away. You know in your heart there is a way. If we could let go things will fall in place.

There is love all around the world. When will we believe? In the cage of our hearts it lives.

When will it be free? Open up show what love can do, relieving the weak. Raising the hopes

of all we can then we will believe. We believe, yes we believe. We believe, yes we believe

 

 


 

 

Sweet Dreams

Memories still fill up my head, all the good times that I used to have. Felt safe and secure. Had a good
career. Never thought there’d be trouble here. Funny, how things can change over

night. Just some

box cutters, all those poor people on the flights. Now at the station, random check my bag but the

police say it’s all right.

What we didn’t know. What we didn’t know. We wanted cheaper clothes. And where they

came from we really didn’t want to know. Brown and yellow people sweat and toil while we

make demands forever less expensive oil. Living in the past. We can’t go back. What we did

not know. How governments were over thrown.

Just go to sleep and dream. While things fall apart at the seams.

Sweet summer breeze, sunlight streams through the leaves. While things fall apart at the

seams, come and talk with me. In the distance we could hear a bomb. We may be gone before

too long. There should always be a chance for peace. Just let go. You can believe it. Sweet

dreams. They are so, so sweet. Dreams of peace.

 

 


 

 

The Expansion Equation

What are your civil rights and Paul McCartney says, “You’ve got the right to fight.” When all

you needed once was love, now an iron fist is inside that kid glove. Can’t believe what I’m

seeing, ex-hippie freaks retreating, holding on to their millions. And I see on all the TV

stations, they’re saluting the military of our nation. But this is the time of misinformation and the

ever-expanding American dominion. Just sit back, wait and see what’s gonna happen to you

and me. Waiting here for that dirty bomb, but there’s no solution to retaliation. I’m getting

real nervous, it’s so complicated. I really feel like being self-medicated. Multinational

globalization, the “maulification” of the United Nations. And white Anglo-Saxon preservation

of colonial racist domination. The hidden reasons and ramifications are keeping the people

from the realization that the endless, needless expansion equation leads to nothing less than

global devastation.

Do you know the difference between good and evil? Can you tell what is real? Look in the

mirror now, how does it make you feel and who are you and what can you do? Read in

papers and magazines when the President speaks on the TV screen. Does it make you want to

want to scream? Go right ahead and scream.

Dare yah, dare yah to be, be the light. Come on, dare yah, all right. Dare yah. Come on, I

dare yah, dare yah to be, be the light, come on. Dare yah, come on, I dare yah all right.

So many people fighting each other because of a politician’s sick twisted dream. All for the

power. Gonna make you think what is wrong is right and right is wrong. That’s not right. And

things are not what they seem. You can be the one and you can make a difference. You can

be the light and know what’s right. We gotta learn how to fight, yeah. Now that the time has

come to get off of our ass and get on with it.

Dare yah, dare yah to be, be the light. Come on, dare yah all right. Dare yah. Come on, I

dare yah, dare yah to be, be the light, come on. Dare yah, come on, I dare yah all right.

Part of the solution or part of the problem, ask yourself the question how we gonna stop them

from doin’ what they’re doin’, they just keep on polutin’.

Our minds and our bodies and souls.

It’s plain to see it’s you and me to do the troubleshootin’ fighting hip-hopocrisies and casting

our votes to change the policies.

In our minds and our bodies and souls.

‘Cause they’re doin’ what they’re doin’, they’re doin’ what they’re doin’ they just keep on d d d

d d d doin’ it to yah. So ask yourself a question.

In your mind and your body and soul.

Am I part of the solution or just a part of the problem? Yeah, come on now, be the light.

Dare yah, dare yah to be, be the light, come on, dare yah all right. Dare yah, come on, I

dare yah, dare yah to be the light, come on, dare yah, come on I dare yah all right.

 

 

 


 

Moon Dust

The things that remind me of who I am keep me going on and on like the moon and stars

radiation from the sun and Tokyo. Where will we all go when it all becomes too much. When

the earth and sea we love so much refuse to nourish us. Will there be clean air and water,

shelter in the aftermath of what we have done for so very long. On and on nature tells us what

is right and what is wrong with us we can not seem to hear the voice of reason as it sings this

song. Maybe I’ve said too much. All things must pass. I hope you know the song and I’m not

boring you or being preachy I hate it just like you. So many things we’ve got to change as the

piper waits to be paid so future generations will have something of their own. The things that

remind me of who I am keep me going on and on like the moon and stars radiation from the

sun and Tokyo. Where will we all go when it all becomes too much. When the earth and sea

we love so much refuse to nourish us.

Moon dust, when the earth she becomes just like the moon. The sea, sea of tranquility can you

remember me? One step for man, one giant leap for mankind. It seems to me we’re cracking

up and don’t have a spine. Lost our minds. Moon dust, when the earth becomes just like the

moon. No news is good news. Is no news really good? With misinformation and

sensationalism. Slant the stories. Make up heroes and their glories. As long as we’re winnin’

the world keeps on spinnin’.

BP spills and doesn’t have to care. So beware. Eat the fish it’s still so good for you and tasty

too yum yum. How can you believe this shit? Be so dumb. Are you numb, dumb dumb! The

aliens wouldn’t land here if you paid, paid them to oh no! Smoke and mirrors can’t hide the

truth from some. ‘Cause they see clearly.

Thank The Daily Show and Steven Colbert ‘cause they care.

Worship Me

When there are no more idylls when all the statues of so-called heroes have fallen the common

man rises to see all are one and equal no difference between us, all rejoice and dance. Yes

dance!

Maybe it’s time, now that the time is right for the people to rise up and become their own

rulers. All of the talk of a Democracy that has been in the past, let’s make freedom ring out

and equality turnin’ it into a real thing. As so many prophets said. Now the many only

interested in power schemes.

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always

bad men.

Worship me. I told you how to be in testimonials on your TV. Now worship me. I am on TV that

makes me more important than you can ever see. I tell you how to live and all the things to

buy, how to dress express yourself and you don’t reason why. I am here to lead you so you

will never try. If you ever wake up you will prefer to die. I am your government controller of

your life, all the advertising propagating in your mind. You really have no choices but you

think you do and it’s my job to make all these dreams come true.

If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Free your self and see that the principles and moral standards of the world are not what they

appear to be. These stereotypes are but shackles upon your mind. Be free, you can if you want

to be. The price is high illusions are the cost. You will feel more pain but you will never be lost.

Seeing a matrix of fallacies and its control over people like you and me. Taking your first steps

as a free man, life as you knew it will never be the same but with this new awareness comes an

inner transformation so joyful and so very strong. You will know divinity and defend it. We are

all the same. Yes, we are all the same.

When all here is done and the supernova engulfs all around nothing but the near invisible

particles of dust from which all has come will then remain. Then the cycle will begin again as it

has always done from the infinite past and into the infinite future.

 

 


 

 

The Ostrich Effect

You got to be rich to save the world and it helps to be a famous rock star or nobody will listen

to you. Either that or a film star or a television personality, that gives credibility. Sometimes it

helps to be funny.

Andy’s 15 minutes of fame is now available to anybody, anybody at all for doing nothing,

absolutely nothing at all. Better to be a star or nobody will listen to you if you want to save the

world from itself. But then again you’re already a part of the problem. Stardom.

Frank Zappa was right the universe is not made out of matter it’s stupidity there’s so much of it.

But don’t listen me because I’m not famous or rich or beautiful and posing for playboy magazine.

George Carlin’s seven dirty words got him into trouble but it’s not the words that are dirty it’s

your mind it’s so very small. People like us scare the shit, piss, fuck, cunt, cocksucker

motherfucker and tits out of you!!!

It’s a disaster isn’t it? You just can’t take it, the truth that is. If you could you might try to do

something about it even if you weren’t blessed with stardom. Key syllable dom if only stardom

were spelled properly s t a r d u m b. Dumb!

Oh yeah, speaking of dumb, eminent domain, colonization, deep sea drilling, dispersants and

other man made marvels. Mother nature burps and Japan slides over 8-12 feet. Now who was

the genius who built a nuclear power plant on fault line? Well that progress for you. What’s a

few hundred million lives, the food chain and the natural order of things worth anyway?

Man has just got to play. Discover America destroy the world what’s the difference. Just put your

head in the sand you’re going nowhere. All is in flux and sometimes we’re just fucked. It’s in

the history books and repeats itself. You want Disney where we all live happily ever after. But

that ain’t the way it is kids. If you just look the other way the whole fucking show goes right

down the toilet. So many heads in the sand. The ostrich effect.

 

 


 

 

The Real Thing

Now let’s take it easy. Ooh it’s sunny and breezy. Everyone’s pretty and you. But don’t look

in the mirror. You won’t see any clearer. No, not if you don’t want to see the real thing. This

world is full of hate. Think maybe God’s made a mistake but with a little faith there’s a way

out. Still I think there is hope but you’d rather just smoke some dope. There’s no way around

reality.

The melting polar icecaps the world will be sinking fast. Maybe we should buy a boat. I sure

hope that boat will float. We better learn how to fish though we know they’re toxic. Think

there’s nothing to this? Watch the news they’re full of it.

Now you’re feeling sleepy. So sorry the story ain’t dreamy but just take a look around at the

world. Man can change his fate but will it be too late. Things set in motion can they be

changed?

Power, the lights are turning off. Here comes the mass hysteria that it will cause. No one will be

safe, except the ones who, who dug our graves. The owners of politicians who put them in

positions puppets with out a conscience. And we put up with all of it. We bailed out the global

banks and corporations that ran into ruin most of the world’s great nations. John Lennon sang

power to the people and revolution. It’s time to set the wheels in motion. Do you see any other

solution? Guillotine these power mad off with their corporate heads or would you just like to

try to sleep it off just go to bed?
