    I Can't See Your Face In My Mind ,The Doors

    I can't seem to find the right lie
    I can't seem to find the right lie
    Insanity's horse
    Adorns the sky
    Can't seem to find the right lie

    Carnival dogs
    Consume the lines
    Can't see your face
    In my mind

    dedicated to the daily news cycle.
    “If you think that’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard,
    just wait a couple minutes!”

    Death Of a Clown by Dave Davies

    My makeup is dry and it cracks 'round my chin
    I'm drowning my sorrows in whisky and gin
    The lion tamer's whip doesn't crack anymore
    The lions won't bite and the tigers won't roar

    So let's go and drink to the death of a clown

    Won't someone help me to break up this crown?
    Let's all drink to the death of a clown

    The old fortune teller lies dead on the floor
    Nobody needs fortunes told anymore
    The trainer of insects is crouched on his knees
    And frantically looking for runaway fleas

    Let's all drink to the death of a clown

    So won't someone help me to break up this crown?
    Let's all drink to the death of a clown

    Harold Land with a wave of his hand
    said goodbye to all that
    He paid his bills, stopped the milk
    And then put on his hat
    He tried to say his last farewells
    As quickly as he could
    Promising that he would return
    But doubted that he would

    Now he's marching soldiers in the rain
    As on to war they rode
    A long thin line of human mind
    Damnation as their load
    In the mud in coldness dark
    He'd shiver out his fear
    What disappointing sights he'd seen
    Instead of one's so dear

    He's going home to the land he loved so well
    He fought for two whole years he never fell
    He's going home

    Harold Land with a wave of his hand
    Stood sadly on the stage
    Clutching red ribbons from a badge
    But he didn't look his age
    Only two years had passed between
    His leaving home and back
    He had lost his love and youth
    While leading the attack

    In conversation it could be said
    Well after war your heart is dead
    And it's not hard to understand
    There is no heart in Harold Land.

    The Who

    "Behind Blue Eyes"

    No one knows what it's like
    To be the bad man
    To be the sad man
    Behind blue eyes

    No one knows what it's like
    To be hated
    To be fated
    To telling only lies

    But my dreams
    They aren't as empty
    As my conscience seems to be

    I have hours, only lonely
    My love is vengeance
    That's never free

    No one knows what it's like
    To feel these feelings
    Like I do
    And I blame you

    No one bites back as hard
    On their anger
    None of my pain and woe
    Can show through

    But my dreams
    They aren't as empty
    As my conscience seems to be

    I have hours, only lonely
    My love is vengeance
    That's never free

    When my fist clenches, crack it open
    Before I use it and lose my cool
    When I smile, tell me some bad news
    Before I laugh and act like a fool

    And if I swallow anything evil
    Put your finger down my throat
    And if I shiver, please give me a blanket
    Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

    No one knows what it's like
    To be the bad man
    To be the sad man
    Behind blue eyes
    “If you think that’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard,
    just wait a couple minutes!”

    Jackson Browne Lyrics
    "Lives In The Balance"

    I've been waiting for something to happen
    For a week or a month or a year
    With the blood in the ink of the headlines
    And the sound of the crowd in my ear
    You might ask what it takes to remember
    When you know that you've seen it before
    Where a government lies to a people
    And a country is drifting to war

    And there's a shadow on the faces
    Of the men who send the guns
    To the wars that are fought in places
    Where their business interest runs

    On the radio talk shows and the T.V.
    You hear one thing again and again
    How the U.S.A. stands for freedom
    And we come to the aid of a friend
    But who are the ones that we call our friends
    These governments killing their own?
    Or the people who finally can't take any more
    And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone
    There are lives in the balance
    There are people under fire
    There are children at the cannons
    And there is blood on the wire

    There's a shadow on the faces
    Of the men who fan the flames
    Of the wars that are fought in places
    Where we can't even say the names

    They sell us the President the same way
    They sell us our clothes and our cars
    They sell us every thing from youth to religion
    The same time they sell us our wars
    I want to know who the men in the shadows are
    I want to hear somebody asking them why
    They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
    But they're never the ones to fight or to die
    And there are lives in the balance
    There are people under fire
    There are children at the cannons
    And there is blood on the wire
    “If you think that’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard,
    just wait a couple minutes!”

    My first rifle was a .243
    Papa gave Daddy and Daddy gave to me
    And they taught me how to shoot with a steady hand
    I guess that's something you don't understand

    Now I grew up on a prison farm
    Sneaking pulls of shine from a mason jar
    Used to go fishing out pickle creek dam
    But I guess that's something you don't understand

    Grandmas in the kitchen
    Papas drunk past dawn
    We sit out on the front porch
    Just a pickin' on the songs
    And there's blood on the table
    'Cause we work for what we have
    And I was raised in this land
    I guess that's something you don't understand

    I still fly that southern flag
    Whistling Dixieland enough to brag
    And I know all the words to simple man
    I guess that's something you don't understand

    I pledge my allegiance the original way
    Say Merry Christmas not Happy Holidays
    I can't change my ways I know who I am
    I guess that's something you don't understand

    Grandmas in the kitchen
    Papas drunk past dawn
    We sit out on the front porch
    Just a pickin' on the songs
    And there's blood on the table
    'Cause we work for what we have
    And I was raised in this land
    I guess that's something you don't understand

    They'll grind us up in a big machine
    They'll feed us all on the same beliefs
    Holy dollar and a credit card
    But we got a way of doing things
    And no bankers gonna steal from me
    They wanna tear it all apart

    Grandmas in the kitchen
    Papas drunk past dawn
    We sit out on the front porch
    Just a pickin' on the songs
    And there's a bible on the table
    'Cause he bleed for what we have
    And that's the ballad of a southern man
    I guess that's something you don't understand

    My first rifle was a .243
    Papa gave Daddy and Daddy gave to me
    If we knew what the hell we were doing, we wouldn't call it research would we.
