    Default my thoughts since the election...

    That's great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane -
    Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn -
    world serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs. Feed it up a knock,
    speed, grunt no, strength no. Ladder structure clatter with fear of height,
    down height. Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for
    hire and a combat site. Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the furies
    breathing down your neck. Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered
    crop. Look at that low plane! Fine then. Uh oh, overflow, population,
    common group, but it'll do. Save yourself, serve yourself. World serves its
    own needs, listen to your heart bleed. Tell me with the rapture and the
    reverent in the right - right. You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright
    light, feeling pretty psyched.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    Six o'clock - TV hour. Don't get caught in foreign tower. Slash and burn,
    return, listen to yourself churn. Lock him in uniform and book burning,
    blood letting. Every motive escalate. Automotive incinerate. Light a candle,
    light a motive. Step down, step down. Watch a heel crush, crush. Uh oh,
    this means no fear - cavalier. Renegade and steer clear! A tournament,
    a tournament, a tournament of lies. Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives
    and I decline.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide. Mount St. Edelite.
    Leonard Bernstein. Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.
    Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean, boom! You symbiotic, patriotic,
    slam, but neck, right? Right.

    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it.
    It's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine...fine...

    That's Cold War. It doesn't apply to now. The song which I believe greater serves our election goes like this...

    Ring around the rosy
    Pocket full of posy
    Ashes, ashes,
    We all fall down...

    There's never a bad time for Barry McGuire, this is Vietnam Era but most of it is translatable.

    The Eastern World
    It is explodin'
    Violence flarin'
    Bullets loadin'
    You're old enough to kill
    But not for votin'
    You don't believe in war
    But what's that gun you're totin'
    And even the Jordan River has bodies floatin'


    But you tell me over, and over, and over again my friend
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction


    Don't you understand what I'm tryin' to say
    And can't you feel the fears I'm feelin' today
    If the button is pushed, there's no runnin' away
    There'll be no one to save
    With the whole world in a grave
    Take a look around you boy,
    It's bound to scare you boy


    And you tell me over, and over, and over again my friend
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction


    Yeah, my blood's so mad
    Feels like coagulatin'
    I'm sittin' here, just contemplatin'
    I can't twist the truth
    It knows no regulation
    Handful of senators don't pass legislation
    And marches alone can't bring integration
    When human respect is disintegratin'
    This whole crazy world
    Is just too frustratin'


    And you tell me over, and over, and over again my friend
    Ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction


    And think of all the hate there is in Red China
    Then take a look around to Selma, Alabama
    Ah you may leave here for four days in space
    But when you return it's the same old place
    The poundin' of the drums
    The pride and disgrace
    You can bury your dead, but don't leave a trace
    Hate your next door neighbor, but don't forget to say grace


    But you tell me over, and over, and over, and over again my friend
    You don't believe we're on the eve of destruction
    No, no, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction

    HAHA I downloaded that song on Wensday. Let's just hoe Michael Stipe doesnt sue you for using his words. He was against Bush, too, so I don't think he will.

    I thought about re-writting most of the verses to fit the current events...like Dexter did with Feelings...I wonder if Michael Stipe would care if I did that..ha

    of course he would. Michael Stipe is 10x times the writer Dexter is.
