Never Stops

Original and similar lyrics
I'm all right Tell me you're all right Almost there Barely here I knew that this day would have to come Wailing on the wall Watching giants fall I know there's a message to receive Written in debris It's meaning's hard to see The loss of innocence Means nothing in the new world All our hands are red Everyone is guilty now I'm all right Tell me you're all right Stop my eyes... Open wide Another idiot glued to the box Frozen to the screen Scared to turn it off Quiet shock gives way to righteousness Rattle on the bars Vengeance will be ours Fanatics on their knees Pray for a swift and just revenge Become what they condemn Mirror image men Hands across America, let's catch contact hysteria Our flag erects from broken homes, July 4 for evermore Colors of democracy Fly from every SUV The misspelled bumper sticker's here Where did all the honor students go? Numbers on the news This time with familiar names This time on familiar ground This reality in your back yard So the fences fall Will you redefine them all? Will you choose shelter or empathy? The world we share has come too close With borders blown from glass We collect stones and cast them They say the party never stops But I know we cannot get off Another idiot comes on the box Breathing privileged air Preaching to the fair Rallying one muscle under God Leading on the cheer Leaning on their fears The state of ignorance means nothing to the faithful God is with us now They disregard the world beyond the wall

Sniper

HARRY CHAPIN "Sniper Other Love Songs"
It is an early Monday morning. The sun is becoming bright on the land. No one is watching as he comes a walking. Two bulky suitcases hang from his hands. He heads towards the tower that stands in the campus. He goes through the door, he starts up the stairs. The sound of his footsteps, the sound of his breathing, The sound of the silence when no one was there. I didn't really know him. He was kind of strange. Always sort of sat there. He never seemed to change. He reached the catwalk. He put done his burden. The four sided clock began to chime. Seven AM, the day is beginning. So much to do and so little time. He looks at the city where no one had known him. He looks at the sky where no one looks down. He looks at his life and what it has shown him. He looks for his shadow it cannot be found. He was such a moody child, very hard to touch. Even as a baby he never smiled too much. No no.No no. You bug me, she said. Your ugly, she said. Please hug me, I said. But she just sat there With the same flat stare That she saves for me alone When I'm home. When I'm home. Take me home. He laid out the rifles, he loaded the shotgun, He stacked up the cartridges along the wall. He knew he would need them for his conversation. If it went as it he planned, then he might use them all. He said Listen you people I've got a question You won't pay attention but I'll ask anyhow. I found a way that will get me an answer. Been waiting to ask you 'till now. Right now ! Am I ? I am a lover whose never been kissed. Am I ? I am a fighter whose not made a fist. Am I ? If I'm alive then there's so much I've missed. How do I know I exist ? Are you listening to me ? Are you listening to me ? Am I ? The first words he spoke took the town by surprise. One got Mrs. Gibbons above her right eye. It blew her through the window wedged her against the door. Reality poured from her face, staining the floor. He was kind of creepy, Sort of a dunce. I met him at the corner bar. I only dated the poor boy once, That's all. Just once, that was all. Bill Whedon was questioned as stepped from his car. Tom Scott ran across the street but he never got that far. The police were there in minutes, they set up baricades. He spoke right on over them in a half-mile circle. In a dumb struck city his pointed questions were sprayed. He knocked over Danny Tyson as he ran towards the noise. Just about then the answers started comming. Sweet, sweet joy. Thudding in the clock face, whining off the walls, Reaching up to where he sat there, answering calls. Thirty-seven people got his message so far. Yes, he was reaching them right were they are. They set up an assault team. They asked for volunteers. They had to go and get him, that much was clear. And the word spread about him on the radios and TV's. In appropriately sober tone they asked Who can it be ? He was a very dull boy, very taciturn. Not much of a joiner, he did not want to learn. No no.No no. They're coming to get me, they don't want to let me Stay in the bright light too long. It's getting on noon now, it's goin to be soon now. But oh, what a wonderful sound ! Mama, won't you nurse me ? Rain me down the sweet milk of your kindness. Mama, it's getting worse for me. Won't you please make me warm and mindless ? Mama, yes you have cursed me. I never will forgive you for your blindness. I hate you! The wires are all humming for me. And I can hear them coming for me. Soon they'll be here, but there's nothing to fear. Not any more though they've blasted the door. As the copter dropped the gas he shouted Who cares ? . They could hear him laughing as they started up the stairs. As they stormed out on the catwalk, blinking at the sun, With their final fusillade his answer had come. Am I ? There is no way that you can hide me. Am I ? Though you have put your fire inside me. Am I ? You've given me my answer can't you see ? I was ! I am ! and now I Will Be I WILL BE !!!

The Myth Of Trust

Billy Bragg "Brewing Up With Billy Bragg"
I woke up this morning To find that we have outlived the myth of trust You woke up this morning To the fact we've lost the things We took for granted between us And I grew up in awe of the girl next door And the boy that never cried And I was dreaming of those Elizabethan girls While you were eorking in the market To earn ourselves And when you found out what happened yesterday While you were away in this land of Cain We were upstairs in the bedroom Dancing disgusting And flushing our babies down the drain And the apple that don't want to get eaten Will still fall off the tree When you're in as deep as we are honey It's so easy to get washed out to sea For the facts of life are not man and wife But Man and Woman sadly And the apple that don't want to get eaten Will still fall off the tree

Orbiter

Fu ManChu "Eatin' Dust"
Man made way uknown..change course.. back to home from the scope they saw a shine.. like that.. close behind By now the controller knew..full power chased by two No one in the room could tell... a wild story yea ohwell For a moment things went calm..no need to sound the alarm The controller gave the word...planes vanish is what we heard Did it happen like he said.. better find out instead Rolling back in time..short notice.. but we'll try Will they ever show..Orbiter lays low Next morning we arrived on site.. had a feelin something aint right Soon as the car door slammed.. Hemi's keys were in my hand Blown heads on a six fifty four (654) All right now we need one more Orbiter is close at hand.. we all agreed on a skyward plan Will they ever show.. Orbiter lays low So now months passed us by.. we're sure it was all a lie Sun mirror was placed on high.. will let us know over time First step to another world..is from years gone by were sure
