Ad Hominem

Ad Hominem

See all people in Afghanistan praying to the gods and living in the sand.
Somebody’s gonna have to set them free, nobody hears the call or command.
But it’s a long way to Harlem, and a long stretch to the king of Siam.
And if you don’t have a penny, why should I give a damn?

Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am?
Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am.

See all the suckers in the handout line living on scraps and they don’t have a dime.
Waiting for endless charity devoid of any sense of posterity.
Well there’s no Great Depression and there’s no Great Society.
And only few go to heaven, all the rest are damned and free.

Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am?
Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am.

I’m just a soft-cover version of a much harder tale. A walking resemblance of ruts in the trail.
Is it possible to divide your ideas and beliefs. Ideas and beliefs. Ideas and beliefs from the people
that you don’t like?

Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am?
Ad Hominem. You think you’re better than I am.

Where The Fun Is

Where The Fun Is

smacked back tarmac stars are scars of fame
in the place where no one knows me by my name

where tar pit drips its drilled out vein
and fashion trips on tangled skein
If you need to slake that aching in your brain

This is where the fun is
this is where the fun is

In the shadow of the valley
where the nights are warm
we will fear no evil
when we get things done

tap in - into the vain
we'll road trip & raise Cain
down on the nickel
with a flame in the rain

This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is

so jump in - into the frame
we're laughin' to hide the pain
it's not a riddle we're all a little, a little amazed

This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is
This is where the fun is

I Won't Say Anything

I Won't Say Anything

He looked just like a zookeeper in a human zoo
so I said hey man how the hell did they get to you
don't you know us animals need something to do
then I flew
that's when he said

hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won’t say anything
unless you ask it right

I took my mean machine to the sacramental post
some kid had spilled his wine on the holiest host
and I said ain’t it funny that machines need a ghost
he made a toast
that's when he said

hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won’t say anything
unless you ask it right

riding to the cemetery in a righteous limousine
I plied the grim proprietor with milk and tangerines
and I said so you're short but are you brutish and mean
then he screamed
that's when he said

hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won't say anything
hey, I can't deny it, but I won’t say anything
unless you ask it right

True North

True North

Unrepentant vagabond.
Plot the new coordinates and cast the map aside.
Now I gotta ramble on,
Navigate the pitfalls and cross the great divide.

The mapmaker's legend has direction and a key.
He set the declination, but what good is it to me?

I can't see the rationality.
The world's not my responsibility.
And happiness isn't there for me,
But maybe I'll inch closer to the source

When I find true north.
With or without a friend.
Keep searching till the end.

Testing fate and cheating death.
No one ever told me it was gonna be like this.
Contemplate the randomness.
When the mind is willing, it gets downright perilous.

Overburdened, underwhelmed, their ethical decrees.
That's your moral compass, but what good is it to me?

I can't see the rationality.
The world's not my responsibility.
And happiness isn't there for me,
But maybe I'll inch closer to the source

When I find true north.
With or without a friend.
Keep searching till the end.

When I find true north.

Past Is Dead

Past Is Dead

Solemn regret.
Transgressions fill my head.
A measure of success
Is how well to forget.
And the past is dead.
Strewn about the battlefield of life are the remainders of history.
When convenient, we exalt them and pay them such respect,
As if we're all in an equivalent trajectory.
And trash piles high in the rubble we forgot.
The angels of our nature just sit and watch it rot.
Now the past is dead.
Let's focus on tomorrow instead.
Oh, the tragic present said, the past is dead.
Who can say what constitutes the most important sector of society
When the dominant portion seek an instant gratification
And are proud of intellectual poverty?
I'd like to be empathetic but I can't.
The jeopardy, too great to make a stand.
Now the past is dead.
Good deeds won't help you get ahead.
Yeah, the modern signpost read, the past is dead.
My next great decision is just lying in wait.
The action might turn out to be the world's most grievous mistake.
Yeah, the past is dead.
More veritable words have never been read.
Oh, the tragic present said, the past is dead.

Robin Hood In Reverse

Robin Hood In Reverse

Here's the church; there's the steeple.
Open up the door; corporations are people.
Wait, what did he say?
What the fuck did he say?
It couldn't last; they had to crash.
Some parties are just made that way.
But when the bell rings, the boys will sing,
Swing low sweet precariat.
Let's say we try to get this right,
Said the plutocrat to Jesus Christ.
And when the old fox, fearing the worst,
Made his entrance in a hearse,
Then the nine in black robes all went berserk.
Oh yeah.
This is a tale of Robin Hood in reverse.
Citizens united. I was excited.
(When the kids are united, they can never be divided.)
But that was yesterday.
There's a brand new sham today.
Let's say we try to get this right,
Said the plutocrat to Jesus Christ.
And when the old fox, fearing the worst,
Made his entrance in a hearse,
Then the nine in black robes all went berserk.
Oh yeah.
This is a tale of Robin Hood in reverse.
Oh yeah.
Let's say we try to get this right,

Land Of Endless Greed

Land Of Endless Greed

I don't really care what other people may say.
I've gotta go on living my life anyway.
Everything is golden; everything's for sale.
I'm done with unsubstantiated fairytales.

But out here in the lap of luxury,
Unlimited guarantee for your insatiable need,
In the land of endless greed.

In the emerald forest, hear a nasty sound.
The big rigs and the miners come and shake the ground.
On the field of plenty, the grazers gather round
To watch the game of supply and demand go down.

But out here in the lap of luxury,
Unlimited guarantee for your insatiable need,
In the land of endless greed.

I don't really care what other people may say.
I've gotta go on living my life anyway.
The poor don't have to struggle in dismal poverty.
Anyone can be the way they wanna be.

Out here in the lap of luxury,
Fortune bears no scrutiny.
What you want is all you need
In the land of endless greed.

Fuck You

Fuck You

Everybody needs a slogan in their pocket or two.
It never hurts to have a strategy you can go to.
Sometimes I have no sense at all.
As most flawed men are won't to do,

Just say fuck you. Pavlovian rude.
A menace too. Pay homage to
Your bad attitude.

You can even get cerebral if you want to.
Make a radical assessment that sticks like glue.
Sometimes it takes no thought at all.
The easiest thing to do

Is say fuck you. Pavlovian rude.
A menace too. Pay homage to
Your bad attitude.

The reaction it brings, just one of those things.
Your friends might not want you around.
If the impulse is right, you might get in a fight,
Even though you can't hold your ground.

But all rest assured; sometimes just a word
Is the most satisfying sound, yeah.

Sometimes it makes no sense at all.
The easiest thing to do

Is say fuck you. Pavlovian rude.
A menace too. Pay homage to
Your bad attitude.

Just say fuck you. Whatcha gonna do
With that attitude? Just say fuck you.

Dharma And The Bomb

Dharma And The Bomb

Wasted days and cigarettes.
Cracked cement and palms.
Bodhidharma has gone fission
With your vedic mom.

Yeah, the Sergeant Major is dreamin' of genie
And she's armed with a borrowed polka-dot bikini, oh yeah.
Tomorrow's coming down
Like dharma and the bomb.

Falling down, falling down.
Like dharma and the bomb.
Falling down, falling down.
Like dharma and the bomb.

The shallows seem evangelical
When you're slammed up against a wall.
And you're stoked to watch all creation
Go over the falls.

Yeah, Kali is coming and you'd better believe it.
That girl's got the atom and the bhagavad ghita, oh yeah.
Samsara's coming down
Like dharma and the bomb.

Falling down, falling down.
Like dharma and the bomb.
Falling down, falling down.
Like dharma and the bomb.

Hello Cruel World

Hello Cruel World

I can't stop the way I feel,
But I can penetrate your religion with a nail.
You are mine and we are twine.
When we radiate in waves together, everything is fine.

Hello cruel world.
Do you know that you're killing me?
I don't mind,
But I could use a little sympathy.

I've been blind
As a fool can be.
My dear cruel world,
Do you ever think about me?

I can feel so alone with you right here.
And yet, I turn to you for comfort in my despair.
You are dust and I am bone.
And I will love your endless gaze of madness until I turn to stone.

Hello cruel world.
Do you know that you're killing me?
I don't mind,
But I could use a little sympathy.

I've been blind
As a fool can be.
My dear cruel world,
Now I know you are my everything.

Please forgive me.

Hello cruel world.
Do you know that you're killing me?
I don't mind,
But I could use a little sympathy.

I've been blind
As a fool can be.
My dear cruel world,
Now I've made a mess of everything.
