    Relevent Song Lyrics w/o comment

    .

    I never knew a man
    could tell so many lies
    He had a different story
    for every set of eyes.
    How can he remember
    who he's talkin' to?
    'Cause I know it ain't me,
    and I hope it isn't you.

    -Neil Young

    Epitaph By King Crimson

    The wall on which the prophets wrote
    Is cracking at the seams
    Upon the instruments of death
    The sunlight brightly gleams
    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams,
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    When silence drowns the screams

    Confusion will be my epitaph
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    And laugh
    But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying

    Between the iron gates of fate,
    The seeds of time were sown,
    And watered by the deeds of those
    Who know and who are known;
    Knowledge is a deadly friend
    If no one sets the rules
    The fate of all mankind I see
    Is in the hands of fools

    The wall on which the prophets wrote
    Is cracking at the seams
    Upon the instruments of death
    The sunlight brightly gleams
    When every man is torn apart
    With nightmares and with dreams,
    Will no one lay the laurel wreath
    When silence drowns the screams

    Confusion will be my epitaph
    As I crawl a cracked and broken path
    If we make it we can all sit back
    And laugh
    But I fear tomorrow I'll be crying,
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
    Crying
    Crying
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying
    Yes I fear tomorrow I'll be crying

    "Strange Days"

    Strange days have found us
    Strange days have tracked us down
    They're going to destroy
    Our casual joys
    We shall go on playing
    Or find a new town

    Yeah!

    Strange eyes fill strange rooms
    Voices will signal their tired end
    The hostess is grinning
    Her guests sleep from sinning
    Hear me talk of sin
    And you know this is it

    Yeah!

    Strange days have found us
    And through their strange hours
    We linger alone
    Bodies confused
    Memories misused
    As we run from the day
    To a strange night of stone
    “If you think that’s the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard,
    just wait a couple minutes!”

    I believe the lyrics for "Epitaph" were written by Pete Sinfield.

    People movin' out, people movin' in.
    Why, because of the color of their skin.
    Run, run, run, but you sho' can't hide
    An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.
    Vote for me and I'll set you free
    Rap on, brother, rap on.
    Well, the only person talkin' 'bout love thy brother is the preacher
    And it seems nobody's interested in learning but the teacher
    Segregation, determination, demonstration, integration, aggravation,
    humiliation, obligation to our nation
    Ball Of Confusion that's what the world is today (yeah, yeah)
    The sale of pills is at an all time high
    young folks walkin' 'round with their heads in the sky
    Cities aflame in the summer time, and oh the beat goes on
    Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
    City inspectors, bill collectors,
    Evolution, revolution, gun control, the sound of soul,
    Shootin' rockets to the moon, kids growin' up too soon
    Politicians say more taxes will solve ev'rything, and the band played on.
    Round and round and around we go, where the world's headed nobody knows.
    Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talkin' to you, just a
    Ball of Confusion that's what the world is today. (yeah, yeah)
    Fear in the air, tension ev'rywhere
    Unemployment rising fast, the Beatle's new record's a gas,
    and the only safe place to live is on an Indian reservation,
    and the band played on
    Eve of destruction, tax deduction,
    City inspectors, bill collectors, mod clothes in demand,
    population out of hand, suicide too many bills, hippies movin' to the hills
    People all over the world are shouting end the war and the band played on.
    Round and round and around we go, where the world's headed nobody knows.
    Great googa mooga, can't you hear me talkin' to you, just a
    Ball of Confusion that's what the world is today
    Let me hear you, let me hear you, let me hear you
    Ball Of Confusion that's what the world is today

    Awake and arise, O ye slumbering nations!
    The heavens have opened their portals again.
    The last and the greatest of all dispensations
    Has burst like a dawn o’er the children of men!


    The dream of the poet, the crown of the ages,
    The time which the prophets of Israel foretold,
    That glorious day only dreamed by the sages
    Is yours, O ye slumbering nations; behold!


    Oh, lift up your voices in song and in story.
    Let banners of peace in all lands be unfurled,
    For truth, heaven-born, in its beauty and glory
    Is marching triumphantly over the world.

    Theodore E Curtis

    That would make for quite a photo op! I’m rooting for ya!

    Then as it was, then again it will be
    And though the course may change sometimes
    Rivers always reach the sea
    Blind stars of fortune, each have several rays
    On the wings of maybe, down in birds of prey
    Kind of makes me feel sometimes, didn't have to grow
    But as the eagle leaves the nest, it's got so far to go

    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.

    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,

    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
