    I made sure that my kids knew the lyrics to this one.

    .
    In this proud land we grew up strong
    We were wanted all along
    I was taught to fight, taught to win
    I never thought I could fail
    No fight left or so it seems
    I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
    I've changed my name, I've changed my face
    But no one wants you when you lose

    Don't give up
    'Cause you have friends
    Don't give up
    You're not beaten yet
    Don't give up
    I know you can make it good
    Though I saw it all around
    Never thought I could be affected
    Thought that we'd be the last to go
    It is so strange the way things turn
    Drove the night toward my home
    The place that I was born, on the lakeside
    As daylight broke, I saw the earth
    The trees had burned down to the ground

    Don't give up
    You still have us
    Don't give up
    We don't need much of anything
    Don't give up
    'Cause somewhere there's a place
    Where we belong
    Rest your head
    You worry too much
    It's going to be alright
    When times get rough
    You can fall back on us
    Don't give up
    Please don't give up
    'Got to walk out of here
    I can't take anymore
    Going to stand on that bridge
    Keep my eyes down below
    Whatever may come
    And whatever may go
    That river's flowing
    That river's flowing
    Moved on to another town
    Tried hard to settle down
    For every job, so many men
    So many men no-one needs

    Don't give up
    'Cause you have friends
    Don't give up
    You're not the only one
    Don't give up
    No reason to be ashamed
    Don't give up
    You still have us
    Don't give up now
    We're proud of who you are
    Don't give up
    You know it's never been easy
    Don't give up
    'Cause I believe there's a place
    There's a place where we belong

    John got it right.

    Imagine there's no heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today... Aha-ah...

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion, too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world... You...

    You may say I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    "Liar"

    I won't ever leave
    If you want me to stay
    Nothing you could do
    That could turn me away

    Hanging on anyway
    Believing the things you say
    Being the fool

    You've taken my life
    So take my soul
    That's what you said
    And I believed it all

    I want to be with you
    Long as you want me to
    But don't move away

    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?

    Liar
    Liar, liar

    We have seen no night
    We have seen no day
    If I ever leave
    Would you want me to stay?

    You can believe in me
    I won't be leaving
    I won't let you go

    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?

    Liar
    Liar, liar
    Liar

    You've taken my life
    So take my soul
    That's what you said
    But who are we to know?

    I want to be with you
    Long as you want me to
    But don't move away

    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?
    Ain't that what you said?

    Liar
    Liar, liar

    Winter in America

    From the Indians who welcomed the pilgrims
    And to the buffalo who once ruled the plains
    Like the vultures circling beneath the dark clouds
    Looking for the rain
    Looking for the rain


    Just like the cities staggered on the coastline
    Living in a nation that just can't stand much more
    Like the forest buried beneath the highway
    Never had a chance to grow
    Never had a chance to grow


    And now it's winter
    Winter in America
    Yes and all of the healers have been killed
    Or sent away, yeah
    But the people know, the people know
    It's winter
    Winter in America
    And ain't nobody fighting
    'Cause nobody knows what to save
    Save your soul, Lord knows
    From Winter in America


    The Constitution
    A noble piece of paper
    With free society
    Struggled but it died in vain
    And now Democracy is ragtime on the corner
    Hoping for some rain
    Looks like it's hoping
    Hoping for some rain


    And I see the robins
    Perched in barren treetops
    Watching last-ditch racists marching across the floor
    But just like the peace sign that vanished in our dreams
    Never had a chance to grow
    Never had a chance to grow


    And now it's winter
    It's winter in America
    And all of the healers have been killed
    Or been betrayed
    Yeah, but the people know, people know
    It's winter, Lord knows
    It's winter in America
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows what to save
    Save your souls
    From Winter in America


    And now it's winter
    Winter in America
    And all of the healers done been killed or sent away
    Yeah, and the people know, people know
    It's winter
    Winter in America
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows what to save
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows, nobody knows
    And ain't nobody fighting
    Cause nobody knows what to save

    I am just a poor boy
    Though my story's seldom told
    I have squandered my resistance
    For a pocket full of mumbles, such are promises
    All lies and jests
    Still a man hears what he wants to hear
    And disregards the rest

    Gold Teeth II

    Who are these children
    Who scheme and run wild
    Who speak with their wings
    And the way that they smile
    What are the secrets
    They trace in the sky
    And why do you tremble
    Each time they ride by


    Throw out your gold teeth
    And see how they roll
    The answer they reveal
    Life is unreal


    Who are these strangers
    Who pass through the door
    Who cover your action
    And go you one more
    If you're feeling lucky
    You best not refuse
    It's your game the rules
    Are your own win or lose


    Throw out your gold teeth
    And see how they roll
    The answer they reveal
    Life is unreal

    Behind Blue Eyes

    No one knows what it's like
    To be the bad man
    To be the sad man
    Behind blue eyes
    And no one knows what it's like
    To be hated
    To be faded 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 its 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 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
    No one knows what its like
    To be mistreated, to be defeated
    Behind blue eyes

    No one know how to say
    That they're sorry and don't worry
    I'm not telling 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 its like
    To be the bad man, to be the sad man
    Behind blue eyes

    In the clouds
    All the graves
    I'll stay if you
    Go away
    Concrete
    Tall as the sky
    Movement passi'n me by
    When you blush
    What a rush
    Reminisce
    Cold crush
    Next door ear to the wall
    All the tension on me for the call
    I wish I wish
    I wish it was all that easy
    I wish I wish
    I wish it was all that easy

    Violence Is Golden
    John Fogerty

    Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
    Ah!
    Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
    Ah!
    Pass another plate of shrapnel,
    Sprinkle it with TNT,
    Gotta have another grenade salad,
    Split it with your enemy.
    Gotta sell another Uzi,
    Maybe couple 44 Mags,
    Got a wife and a kid to support,
    And a payment on the Jag.
    Won't you try this personal bazooka,
    Make you feel like a man,
    Show the little girls what's what
    By the size of the thunder in your hands.
    Take a pocketful of Teflon bullets,
    Maybe 'nother Tommy gun,
    Gotta keep stuff movin' out the door,
    Got a business to run.
    Take it from me, son
    You can have a lot of fun!
    Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
    Ah!
    Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
    Ah!
    Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
    Ah!
    Violence, (oh no!) is golden.
    Ah!
    Pass another fleet of B-L bombers,
    Grab an M-16,
    Buildin' Chevy's was never the fun
    Of buildin' up the war machine.
    Got a rocket in my pocket and it's ready,
    Do you think we can deal?
    Got a year-end sale goin' on,
    You can see the appeal,
    'Cause I'm sellin' both sides of the fence,
    That be the name of the game,
    I don't care about your silly little struggle,
    Money's colored all the same.
    Take a handful of Star Wars missiles,
    Maybe super laser gun,
    Gotta keep stuff movin' out the door,
    Got a business to run.
    Take it from me, son
    We can have a lot of fun!
    Violence, (oh no!) is golden.

    The Road to Hell Pt.II

    Well I'm standing by a river
    But the water doesn't flow
    It boils with every poison you can think of
    And I'm underneath the streetlights
    But the light of joy I know
    Scared beyond belief way down in the shadows
    And the perverted fear of violence
    Chokes a smile on every face
    And common sense is ringing out the bells
    This ain't no technological breakdown
    Oh no , this is the road to hell

    And all the roads jam up with credit
    And there's nothing you can do
    It's just all bits of paper
    Flying away from you
    Look out world take a good look
    What comes down here
    You must learn this lesson fast
    And learn it well
    This ain't no upwardly mobile freeway
    Oh no , this is the road to hell

    Chris Rea

    something for everybody

    It's Alright, Ma
    Bob Dylan

    Darkness at the break of noon
    Shadows even the silver spoon
    The handmade blade, the child's balloon
    Eclipses both the sun and moon
    To understand you know too soon
    There is no sense in trying

    Pointed threats, they bluff with scorn
    Suicide remarks are torn
    From the fool's gold mouthpiece
    The hollow horn plays wasted words
    Proves to warn that he not busy being born
    Is busy dying

    Temptation's page flies out the door
    You follow, find yourself at war
    Watch waterfalls of pity roar
    You feel to moan but unlike before
    You discover that you'd just be
    One more person crying

    So don't fear if you hear
    A foreign sound to your ear
    It's alright, Ma, I'm only sighing
    As some warn victory, some downfall
    Private reasons great or small
    Can be seen in the eyes of those that call
    To make all that should be killed to crawl
    While others say don't hate nothing at all
    Except hatred

    Disillusioned words like bullets bark
    As human gods aim for their mark
    Made everything from toy guns that spark
    To flesh-colored Christs that glow in the dark
    It's easy to see without looking too far
    That not much is really sacred
    While preachers preach of evil fates
    Teachers teach that knowledge waits
    Can lead to hundred-dollar plates
    Goodness hides behind its gates

    But even the president of the United States
    Sometimes must have to stand naked
    An' though the rules of the road have been lodged
    It's only people's games that you got to dodge
    And it's alright, Ma, I can make it

    Advertising signs that con you
    Into thinking you're the one
    That can do what's never been done
    That can win what's never been won
    Meantime life outside goes on
    All around you

    You lose yourself, you reappear
    You suddenly find you got nothing to fear
    Alone you stand with nobody near
    When a trembling distant voice, unclear
    Startles your sleeping ears to hear
    That somebody thinks they really found you
    A question in your nerves is lit
    Yet you know there is no answer fit to satisfy
    Insure you not to quit

    To keep it in your mind and not fergit
    That it is not he or she or them or it
    That you belong to
    Although the masters make the rules
    For the wise men and the fools
    I got nothing, Ma, to live up to
    For them that must obey authority
    That they do not respect in any degree
    Who despise their jobs, their destinies
    Speak jealously of them that are free
    Do what they do just to be nothing more than something they invest in
    While some on principles baptized
    To strict party platform ties
    Social clubs in drag disguise
    Outsiders they can freely criticize
    Tell nothing except who to idolize
    And then say God bless him
    While one who sings with his tongue on fire
    Gargles in the rat race choir
    Bent out of shape from society's pliers
    Cares not to come up any higher
    But rather get you down in the hole that he's in
    But I mean no harm nor put fault
    On anyone that lives in a vault
    But it's alright, Ma, if I can't please him
    Old lady judges watch people in pairs
    Limited in sex, they dare
    To push fake morals, insult and stare
    While money doesn't talk, it swears
    Obscenity, who really cares
    Propaganda, all is phony
    While them that defend what they cannot see
    With a killer's pride, security
    It blows the minds most bitterly
    For them that think death's honesty
    Won't fall upon them naturally
    Life sometimes must get lonely
    My eyes collide head-on with stuffed graveyards
    False gods, I scuff
    At pettiness which plays so rough
    Walk upside-down inside handcuffs
    Kick my legs to crash it off
    Say okay, I have had enough
    What else can you show me
    And if my thought-dreams could be seen
    They'd probably put my head in a guillotine
    But it's alright, Ma, it's life, and life only

    Bob Dylan Lyrics
    "Not Dark Yet"

    Shadows are fallin' and I've been here all day
    It's too hot to sleep and time is runnin' away
    Feel like my soul has turned into steel
    I've still got the scars that the sun didn't heal
    There's not even room enough to be anywhere
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    Well, my sense of humanity has gone down the drain
    Behind every beautiful thing there's been some kind of pain
    She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind
    She put down in writin' what was in her mind
    I just don't see why I should even care
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    Well, I've been to London and I been to gay Paris
    I've followed the river and I got to the sea
    I've been down on the bottom of the world full of lies
    I ain't lookin' for nothin' in anyone's eyes
    Sometimes my burden is more than I can bear
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    I was born here and I'll die here against my will
    I know it looks like I'm movin' but I'm standin' still
    Every nerve in my body is so naked and numb
    I can't even remember what it was I came here to get away from
    Don't even hear the murmur of a prayer
    It's not dark yet but it's gettin' there.

    We starve, look at one another, short of breath
    Walking proudly in our winter coats
    Wearing smells from laboratories
    Facing a dying nation of moving paper fantasy
    Listening for the new told lies
    With supreme visions of lonely tunes
    Singing our space songs on a spider web sitar
    Life is around you and in you

    Tales of Turmoil and Strife

    Neil Young, Mideast Vacation Album: Life Released: July 6, 1987

    I used to watch Highway Patrol, whittling with my knife
    But the thought never struck me I'd be black and white for life

    I was raised on law and order in a community of strife
    Became a restless boarder and I never took a wife

    I went looking for Khadafi aboard Air Force One
    But I never did find him, and the CIA said "Son"

    You'll never be a hero, your flying days are done
    It's time for you to go home now, quit sniffing that smoking gun

    I was travelling with my family in the Mideast late one night
    In the hotel all was quiet, the kids were out like little lights

    Then the streets were filled with jeeps, there was an explosion to the right
    They shouted "Death to America", I was feelin' like a fight

    So I ran down the stairs, and out into the street
    Someone kicked me in the belly, someone else kissed my feet

    I was Rambo in the disco, I was shootin' to the beat
    When the burned me in effigy, my vacation was complete
    "Why don't you Mine your own Bismuth, so you won't be mining mine?"

    Another Brick in the Wall Lyrics - Part 2
    (Waters)

    We don't need no education
    We dont need no thought control
    No dark sarcasm in the classroom
    Teachers leave them kids alone
    Hey! Teachers! Leave them kids alone!
    All in all it's just another brick in the wall.
    All in all you're just another brick in the wall.

    "Wrong, Do it again!"
    "If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding. How can you
    have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?"

    this could easily be modded for today's political situation.
    “If you think that’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard,
    just wait a couple minutes!”
