I swear I took it yesterday But not for all the pseudo righteous standing aside as I write this Brad Will would be turning 45 Rachel Corrie 38 and Berta 44 instead we stew in the festering brew of walls and wars what's it take to shake complacence? man you can't have that much patience. how much wisdom do we want to unlearn from the ancients I was a non rolling stone the rage had to come get me Now I'm a fire in the master's house and you set me L. Ron Hubbard tryin'a make you see a bone up in the cupbord t-VEE steady tryin'a make you flee out to the suburbs that's why I give their newsdesk anchor zero respect what partial fantasy they wantin me to fear next happy to pay the highest cost to live the land of the lost you're still dreamin you a boss. Alarm's BEEN goin off. Wake Up! whether we gotta get more boats or more votes or more coats there ain't been a wall that can lick us yet so whether you hate tax, hate blacks or hate facts standin for a fallin wall is a call you might regret Don't want your walls or your borders or your attitude or your orders You'll see! When all your walls fall and first peoples stand tall Cameras line up to depict an angry mob Fat cats upstairs laugh 'Let's see em unionize without a job' Reporters grit they teeth, 'Damn! No violence, no story' Responsible Citizens fed up with injustices is boring and they got umpty hump hundred military bases to make sure all the time, material and resources of this world get wasted try to find me a better definition of evil so I must percieve your pentagon as the enemy of the people but just like Apartheid or that wall in Berlin some day it's all gonna stall and fall and we gon' win whether we gotta get more boats or more votes or more coats there ain't been a wall that can lick us yet so whether you hate tax, hate blacks or hate facts standin for a fallin wall is a call you might regret Don't want your walls or your borders or your attitude or your orders You'll see!

And even when it ain't... Still gotta be done. Fighting fascism can be fun. And even when it ain't... Still gotta be done. Fighting fascism can be fun. And even when it ain't...

a lot of moles don't have eyes but if they did they could look deep into you and dig up what you hid your fools gold, your old soul, you're giving up controll to some genocidal aaaa.... choo You. Yes you. Are not a fish But if you were a fish I can tell you what you probably would wish not to be swimming in plastic, growing tumors making you spastic to continue a neverending cycle of life formerly so fantastic it's like 1-2-3 for Solidarity it's like A-B- see what we're doing to the trees if you were a non human would someone advocate for you? you have to power to advocate. Great. So what you gonna do? you're probably not a cow but if you were we wouldn't care about your rights you'd probably never get heard you'd live among miles and miles of your own species standing in piles and piles of each others feces eating monotanous food, spending monotanous days subjected to hundreds of abuses in thousands of ways on your way someday to your corporate sanctioned murder all for the sake of a "happy" McHamburger staring sideeyed at the humans hoping their compassion will kick in and the only thing to be grateful for is not being a chicken it's like 1-2-3 for Solidarity it's like A-B- see what we're doing to the trees if you were a non human would someone advocate for you? you have to power to advocate. Great. So what you gonna do? I am not a tree, but if I was a tree you would hack me all to bits and then blow your nose on me I tell ya, I'd get no respect by the time you get around to protecting me, nothing left to protect so I couldn't do for you what I used to do I care that you need air but yeah I do too killin me for the cows, killin cows for the dough and the wheat flour all has round-up in it now thanks to Monsan... Oh. Almost said the M word. My bad. But as you can see life for trees is gettin pretty sad it's like 1-2-3 for Solidarity it's like A-B- see what we're doing to the trees if you were a non human would someone advocate for you? you have to power to advocate. Great. So what you gonna do? You're not a planktonic organism, but as you probably have guessed a microorganism's life's not faring much better than the rest we're gonna have a decades long debate about consumption in the west while at every scale life on Earth is put to the test And even when an advocate dares to do their best THEY get criminalized and labeled a terrorist? For what? For documenting actual depravity, torture & terror She just took a picture of abuse and somehow SHE's in error? Gimmie a break. For pigs' sake. Our morality's at stake We've got mamoth changes to make. So what's it gonna take? if you were a non human would someone advocate for you? you have to power to advocate. Great. So what you gonna do? if you were a non human would someone advocate for you? you have to power to advocate. Great. So what you gonna do? What you gonna do? What you gonna do?

Something Wild stirs in me congeals and then I come to be I sniff, i reach I start to see a world comprised of Wonder Something wild still calls to me it knows not how to be unfree remembers what I've never seen amidst the lowing thunder Something Wild escapes from me flies the skies so boundlessly perceives a vast eternity in one droplet of water Something Wild hides with me panicked breath and weary heaves and knows where every floorboard creaks so not to rouse a daughter And I will not forget to be something wild we are still free from here straight through eternity Something Wild With something wild we are still free

Can somebody explain to me what life will be worth After we change the chemical composition of the surface of the Earth? Can somebody explain to me what life will be worth After we change the chemical composition of the surface of the Earth? We've taken radioactivity from deep underground and dragged a bit into our towns. Now how that sound? We've added a lot of carbon to our atmosphere Sean Hannity don't wanna hear, but Bill McKibbin's been livin in fear Al Gore tried to tell us before but Inconvenient Truths are the easiest ones to ignore Maybe oceans should be acidified? Maybe it's time all marine life died And maybe our kids will be fine with no bees Maybe they won't miss the trees Can somebody explain to me what life will be worth After we change the chemical composition of the surface of the Earth? Can somebody explain to me what life will be worth After we change the chemical composition of the surface of the Earth? Let's go for a ride on some Sulphur dioxide dioxins for you all, they got toxins at the mall they took the murcury out, cuz some blogger had some doubts Public Relations is on it, they'll help confuse what it's about I don't think that Floride levels in our water ARE maxed out we could put MORE in. Our bodies are great places for storin the byproducts of industry let's get some PCBs into me through chemistry this life can be the best we've ever had was Fukushima really all that bad? Can somebody explain to me what life will be worth After we change the chemical composition of the surface of the Earth? Can somebody explain to me what life will be worth After we change the chemical composition of the surface of the Earth?

if you kill some time you find that it's forever gone and I have a million thoughts in the queue waiting to be put on never bored! I just let my mind be still wander as it will. and don't stress until it serves the situation maybe have a conversation with a babbling brook, or a shady nook with a good book I need ferns and flowers more than cell phone towers I'm out of range for hours? That just increases my powers no shoes no service? no way c'mon, I got all kinds of service all day And anyway / I see some Raspberries for free in aisle three right next to the mulberry tree we showin up just as we intended to be, we BOHEMIAN FABULOUS see most materialism just bounces off me see BOHEMIAN FABULOUS be the change you wanna be by changing the way you see be BOHEMIAN FABULOUS the weather can be whatever we're together BOHEMIAN FABULOUS there's no parking downtown? Well then why would I go there? where there're too many people and not enough air Though me I can park my bike anywhere I like I got a bike trailer and a portable mic so you tell Questlove he can tell Jimmy Fallon my bike gets 50 million miles to the gallon then your roots can pass it around round robin till my mic gets 50 giggle smiles from a goblin mobbin with honey bees smellin like wet wood and pine trees point and stare when I baby wear I ain't gonna care. plus my manbun works for me don't you have your own hair? for my next amazing trick: Eye contact when I chat Wait. you say you tried to text me? Well I don't know why you did dat. we showin up just as we intended to be, we BOHEMIAN FABULOUS see most materialism just bounces off me see BOHEMIAN FABULOUS be the change you wanna be by changing the way you see be BOHEMIAN FABULOUS the weather can be whatever we're together BOHEMIAN FABULOUS we got a tribe and good songs to sing we connect in respect so we ain't missin a thing we're unpredictable even though our pace is slow we got it done on the go and you wouldn't even know and then we congregate with close friends by fire light and every time you laugh with love you did it right BOHEMIAN FABULOUS

The revolution may not be live streamed but then again it might as it all goes down you use the tools around to shed some light the revolution will not guarantee that your opinion tweets will be seen by who they say you won't own your social networks or your facebook feed on revolution day you will not be able to download the revolution from itunes or google plays you will not be able to hulu the revolution and binge watch to catch up on missed days they wont have a copy of the revolution at game stop for play station or xbox it will not come with 4 billion distinct planets to explore or even 4 just one. Just one big one. And it will be under the gun so let it be known the revolution could be bombarded by drones whether abroad or at home we had more than a decade for outrage while they did it to other people but now they can just hang up the phone you will be televised during the revolution on closed circut tv they'll scan your licence plates, your face, your phone or whatever the case may be will black mothers matter during the revolution, black daughters, black wives I don't know you tell me how far have you ever seen a revolution in America get without black lives? black is beautiful black cell phones and the evidence they gather must matter a whole lot because before when we tried to tell you cops shoot and fear black people you told us we must be smoking pot so let Sandra Bland's mother participate in the revolution in whatever way suits her best revolutions get a lot more forward momentum if everyone's not sitting around second guessed the revolution is not likely to weigh in on whether it's could or couldn't care less the revolution probably won't be assisted much by perfect grammar or any of that mess the revolution could not care any less what your genetals were at birth the revolution won't be checking bathroom stalls or the contents of your purse the revolution will not care to which God you pray or whether or not you're gay the revolution will care much more about what you do than what you say Ay! the revolution will not and can not just forget Fukushima or oil plumes in the gulf of Mexico or mile high mountains where it no longer snows no. The revolution does not just want to write off low lying islands and coastal cities the revolution may not be pretty the revolution will ever value the quality of life over the quantity of money the revolution may read your 9/11 commision report but only when it's in the mood to read something funny the revolution will not fear the man, will not work with the man, or even refer to the man the revolution will be too busy working on its restoration plan so fix your gaze and give some praise to our new mixed-use, green code community center it used to be called the pentagon but it finally got to be time we were moving on and while you're at it shutter capitol hill and safety wrap all your most precious buildings the revolution may emergency land on Manhattan island like occupy wall street times a billion the revolution may not be live streamed it may not be distinguishable from dreams it may provide proper perspective on sports teams united we may yet stand divided we surely all fall the revolution may be so hard to spark because through long division they've stupified us all the revolution may return us to the bay and see to it that we do some swimming and hey the revolution talks about patriarchy so much because it knows the value of women and as the sands of time slide through the bottleneck things get really really real the revolution may need free thinkers but not as much as it needs those who are free to feel the revolution may not be feuled by apathy or hopelessness it just absolutely can not so we need to feel something and feel it fast the revolution may be all we got

Boats, Coats, Commands in throats clear cut the new world for cows and goats gotta build more colts and tame more heathens they gonna learn capitulation if they wanna keep breathin Oklahoma oh it'll be JUST like Virginia Fire Water will help you, now your lives can continue we bear gifts, Small Pox, cause we're civilized watch tribe after tribe vanish right before your eyes Mississippi and Amazon brought life to the land now they bring horses and gunshots Conquistador & white man old world too crowded? Here's a new place to stay but these People are in the way Hay but these People are in the way Hay Build a bigger boat, sail to Africa and tell them these trees are worth some money But that money is for Belgium text tbooks teach me: it's good what we do Cecil Rhodes and King Leopold II DeBeers and Anglo they're entitled to a cash flow built by brown bodied babies working down in a deep hole Gimmie the Gold, gimmie the jewels, Give me everything I say and do not be in my way Hay best not be in the way Hay A man, sand, ancient lands where carivans traveled in narrow bands near to far east, they all came through A center of culture and commerce too now what they do? The hanging garden grows a column of smoke father, son, searching, trying hard not to choke no joke, you lived a little to close to the gas plantations so now it's goodbye nation hello radiation there's the shell of their old home so little is left An invading army that liberates you to death A foot an ear here to bury this day of the family that was in the way Hay family was in the way Hay

Sounds like the show's already started Rog. Let's get in there. They're not going to let us in. Why wouldn't they let in? They won't like us. What's not to like? We're paying the same money everybody else is. We'll see. Hey, where do you think you're going? Inside to see the show. We have a dress code I'm wearing almost the exact same thing as that fuchsia fellow with the big bulgey eyes Almost doesn't count. Now get out of here! If you're still in smelling range the next time I have to inhale you're going to get to see me get angry. And you won't like it. Is it because he's a robot? [anger] We're leaving now. We won't trouble you again. I think I might know another way in. When we get to this corner duck around it with me. Alright? What was that guy's problem anyway? I was trying to tell you. There is a strong bias against Earthers in this system. What d' they got againt Earthers? In analyzing their chat points I compiled in excess of 36,000 comments relating to Earthers. More than 80% of them could be considered negative comments. Of those almost half referenced your smell. I'm actually smellin alright tonight Rog. More than a third of the comments took a dim view of your species' brutality. And went on to cite things like wide-spread genital mutilation. I wouldn't exactly say it's widespread...I mean Have you taken a look at your ween lately? Oh you mean? and included things like senseless abuse and slaughter of the other species in your food production systems and the amount of time and energy spent in maiming and slaughtering one another within your own species with a large speculative overlap of comments suggesting these may contribute to your smell. Okay Rog. Nevermind! Do you think you could maybe walk a little quieter? I weigh 486 kilograms. How exactly do you propose I walk quieter? I dunno. Tip toe or something. Here gimmie a hand with this You should not touch that. I know what I'm doing Rog C'mon You should definitely not touch that! On second though... Maybe you're right. Let's get out of here. Strongly agree. Bunch of overplaying Deltoid jam bandish sound snobs anyway
