We ain't tryin ta hear that they been sayin that for years And why they work so hard on tryin to divide us? Could it be that they're afraid of what's inside us? birds gotta sing, and wolves gotta eat we gotta rock to the beat try to get you out your seat you ain't weak or asleep or a creep or alone so when I say revolution come on let's get it on soon as we get your wings unfurled your gifts are going to change the whole world What if we turned off the tv and I touched you and you touched me and what if we just giggled for fun and run out into the sun where we all just fall into one communicate and relate demonstrate without anger flirtin with danger talkin to a stranger we could play a game everyone could win it we could eat a meal with no animals in it go out and get our groove on and dance until the dawn and remember it all in the mornin (mornin) in the mornin (mornin) in the mornin on and on and on and on and on and we're all winners here fighting to be free from fear we're all winners here to me that's just crystal clear Who's the fool that said that it was wrong to hug the trees or that we shouldn't just dangle in the breeze and who says that a woman that likes sex is a slut?

Hip hop hibby to the hibbity hip hop I was out moonwalking in flip flops (bang bang boogie said up jumps the boogie said up jumps the boogie) beyond the moon's gravity I buzzed Uranus, not your body cavity I was 12 years old I thought Pluto would be cold but it's quite warm the people got their own charm They like the wave and the windmill the winds are quite frenetic (Breakdance! Do the backspin) I thought we'd be a big hit that proved to be prophetic Broke our best moves out and we got a little rowdy Spun all around and electrified the crowd With so much electricity it left em debatin our historicity resulting in much free publicity (Historicity? Is that a word?) 15 famous minutes proved not to be the case cuz I'm still all the rage me and the breakers in space breakers in space - the breakers in space they set their own pace the breakers in space - breakers in space a superhuman race of breakers in space - breakers in space cut right to the chase the breakers in space - the breakers in space - breakers in space Things was heatin up by the time we hit Venus lot o girls there, they wanted to see my... um (Ooooo.) fancy dance and romance, fun in the sun, no doubt I saw this woman what would turn your brain inside out I didn't care if she could dance I was lookin at her pants Wanted to tell her she was gorgeous if I ever got the chance But... she looked at that with contempt and disdain Like "I don't care about my beauty. Brought me nothin but pain" As we wandered the stars she showed me inner scars and I'd been in love for light years by the time that we got back to Mars breakers in space... (No. no. no no.) (The chorus don't go there. We doin the mars part. The Mars part!) (uh-uh) Breakers in Space (continued) I met a girl there had black hair everywhere in her underwear and men who stared cared I liked how people tried to put her down and she would ignore em (Talkin bout my generation) and she was the only one what made it out of Purim with decorum I went for a high five she went for a kiss she knew all the freshest shit about follow your bliss and I was like "Hey, if you wanna be my girlfriend okay that's cool but if my girlfriend calls you can't be rude that's the only rule Oh and do unto others as you'd have done unto you (What means polyamory?) And communicate what you'd do unto others. I guess that's a rule too If that's cool we could hang out at my place but nevermind the noise from the breakers in space" breakers in space - the breakers in space they set their own pace the breakers in space - breakers in space a superhuman race of breakers in space - breakers in space cut right to the chase the breakers in space - the breakers in space - breakers in space Slung shot around the sun and did the timewarp again (Let's do the timewarp again) tried to rock for Dr. Spock but he ain't wanna be out friend his eyes was like MADNESS one step beyond (beam me up Scotty) (Our house in the middle of our street) mumbling somethin bout the 80s wrath of Khan and Mr. Mantalbahn who had some rap records and a disco ball and we didn't care what it was called we broke to it all top rockin, poppin and lockin New Degobah, North Klackabakka and Compton (comin straight outta Klackabakka is a brotha that'll cuddle your mutha... uhh, could you email me a picture of your moms?) so pop and lock while we rock for justice you don't think you see the stardust but just trust us it's here it's there it's in front of your face it's love and it's lace and it's breakers in space breakers in space - the breakers in space they set their own pace the breakers in space - breakers in space a superhuman race of breakers in space - breakers in space cut right to the chase the breakers in space - the breakers in space - breakers in space 9 planets when we started but now there's only 8 (They gonna pay for what they did to Pluto.) One got ate at a egghead debate (Not Pluto!) learn new tricks you old dog it's never too late and blend in some new styles you create build me a beat I'll bust the babble like a bubble and once we hit the tribbles with the trebble man you know they in trouble (Cuz it's 1-8-7 on ya undercover crops) no ray gun (Well) we have fun on the real leave your asteroid field and remember the feel from when breakin wasn't just showin off your body it was ladi dadi (ladi dadi) and we like to party (we didn't cause trouble, didn't bother nobody) wasn't no fans cause the circle expands till everybody could see more than just feets and hands everybody could get in with no maybes old white ladies and itty bity babies would just catch a groove and bust your move lay it to waste just like the breakers in space breakers in space - the breakers in space they set their own pace the breakers in space - breakers in space a superhuman race of breakers in space - breakers in space cut right to the chase the breakers in space - the breakers in space - breakers in space

Back before your father was born I used to go online and search for porn and I had magazines, DVDs Miseducating me with their non-stop misogyny I had misinformation on treating women properly Maxim magazine advice that I executed sloppily To fill the void left by parents who never talked to me I was a little tiny man with a big world on top of me And to be quite honest, I was afraid of girls I arrested my development in a cartoon world To the point where I'd fantasize about cartoon boobs In a catatonic state with my cathode ray feeding tube I didn't have the hottest car but at least I had employment I had a college education and a pay day for enjoyment you know: rent a few movies, take a few back fill empty spaces in my life with department store crap I used to try to socialize but that was always a chore women didn't need men anymore so what was I even there for? until one day when I was blurring my reality At an office party open bar downing liquid personality When your grandma appeared as if in a dream and she was high society, and low self-esteem She was the daughter of the boss of my boss' boss surprisingly easy to talk to with how she hit the sauce we hit it off started seeing a lot of each other still never would I have imagined she would become your father's mother seems I was enough of a looser to be revenge on mister Cleaver the way her family used to touch her made her an eager leaver so next thing you know I'm on the outskirts of town in some big house on a hill they had laying around to assuage their guilty conscience this was something they could give her a safe distance from the homeless, dangerously close to the river and some kind of alphabet soup, I dunno, PCBs? that was being pumped and dumped by a couple of crazy companies Ah yes, but I digress, I get ahead of myself let's see... my life... my new wife... Your father's failing mental health Safe to say he wasn't born into the greatest of situations two newlywed nincompoops, BAM! baby. No preparation See, your grandma was a lush, and I was a freak and she would pass out and I would work out my technique Nine months later your father appeared She was still drunk, I was still weird In a manicured chem-lawn world surrounded by EM fields and plastic you have the illusion of serenity while your cells are going spastic and we didn't even know the question, let alone have any answer your aunt Ruth was born half eaten by cancer DOA sad to say, that's why you never knew your aunt seems the one thing your grandma never got was about the only thing she would want after that it was just me you see taking care of your father it hit your grandma pretty hard, so she hit the bottle even harder I should have got your grandma help, but I wasn't man enough So your uncle Ron was born with that fetal alcohol stuff that's why he's not quite right, he's not quite wrong Your father helped us get along and before you know his childhood's gone you see, this stupid system screwed your family in stages they locked your father in cages and that's the reason for his violent rages Oh, you didn't know? He's probably never mentioned When your dad was a teenager he took things to get attention He wound up in and out of juvenile detention We were raising two lost boys with lives full of apprehension Your dad was less and less in school, more and more on the street getting harder and harder to hire with his really ramshackle rap sheet it's not always what you've done, sometimes it's who you know gramma's family tried to get him jobs but half the time he wouldn't go So, next thing you know he signs up for the corps In our United State of perpetual war Quickly married your mamma for the military benefit left half his mind behind and now we never hear the end of it He's always popping off at protesters and their 'peace is patriotic' I don't know who's right or wrong, but half the time he's idiotic I suppose peace is possible, preferable at the heart of it but that's for braver folks to decide, me and grandma wanted no part of it we just paid our taxes... but didn't vote It was all we could do to cope; we didn't have time for hope We just watched the nightly news, blah, blah, blah, what wars we're winning and all this left wing right wing left my head spinning I stopped watching around the time they switched that chick for Peter Jennings There was a Mets game on, that was headed for extra innings tv talked about times being better, but that was a big bunch of crap and Perhaps, I'm talked out, I should probably take a nap Why don't you call your friend Jeff, go play outside And if the sun comes out remember how I showed you where to hide Hey! Don't hit your grandpa! You sure are your father's daughter Later when I awaken, go with grandpa, we'll get you a loan for water Just remember not to strap your oxygen helmet on too tight last time your face turned white and it stayed that way all night I wish you had a better future, so it goes... so it goes I probably could have done better, I suppose... I suppose

One thing about music is when it's real they won't play it too much truth they can't even say it Say Revolution then they'll delay it In the real world see people know they had enough sick and tired of livin so fed up but they try to act and they get stuck In the real world it's hard to plot a good strategy workin part time j-o-b number 3 coming home to a hungry family make some tea out in the sea I see GNP as my enemy cause see my inner voice says to me get on up it's time to get free yeah, get on up it's time to get free Disseminate Information (na na na) Time to contemplate your liberation (na na na) Disseminate Information (na na na) Time to contemplate your liberation (na na na) One thing about love is when it's real they get scared one thing for which they are not prepared is if people all knew the truth and they cared cause if you really loved the living, I mean enough to give of your life GE simply could not survive, McDonald's could not talk their jive You'd shout em down. Again and again and again every time they come around With their tail between their legs they'd leave out your town When they couldn't make a penny, pence or a pound get down for real, make sure your friends also all know the deal google up Dave Morris, Helen Steel, cause that's how you act when you love for real would you rather be a realist or idealist just have faith or really feel this Is it all about welfare and healthcare or FREEDOM Would you rather have the truth or tv cause see my inner voice says to me get on up it's time to get free get on up it's time to get free Disseminate Information (na na na) Time to contemplate your liberation (na na na) Disseminate Information (na na na) Time to contemplate your liberation (na na na) One thing about courage when it's real they get mad they want their sheeple not to be bad, sit alone in the dark and watch some more ads Everywhere you look there's prisons, every day they buildin more That's the real plan for housin the poor, what the hell you think they built them all for? A brother like me I just stay awake Get in where you fit in for the Earth's sake And it's still one love with no time to hate But get on up you control your own fate get on up you control your own fate get on up you control your own fate Disseminate Information (na na na) Time to contemplate your liberation (na na na) Disseminate Information (na na na) Time to contemplate your liberation (na na na)

the world could be such a beauitiful place we could grow back all of the trees take all the madness out of the air make it safe for the birds and the bees reduce our need for energy and get it all straight from the sun and build a brighter more beautiful world for sharing with everyone except for the horny people we could take our kids and fill them up with premium self esteem teach them lots of everything to help them live out their dreams love everything about them right down to their imperfections and teach them to share everything with everyone no exceptions except for the horny people because the horny people should die All of the horny people should die there's one little fact in this great big world which nobody can deny and that's that horny people should die All of the horny people should die they should die... die... die... there's beauty everywhere you look be grateful to be in your skin love yourself but do not touch for that kind of love is a sin don't trade your soul for tactile gold that fades while heaven would last and remember God loves everyone because God don't-a make-a no trash except for horny people old people should not be horny that's just so obviously wrong young people need aversion therapy to help them in gettin along horny people internment camps are needed all over the Earth where we could send them straight to hell after we strip them and spank them first oh my, my, somebody kill me because the horny people should die All of the horny people should die there's one little fact in this great big world which nobody can deny and that's that the horny people should die All of the horny people should die they should die, they should die, they should die, etc.

You remember being young with coloring books? Wanting every grown up to look? They didn't care about your artistic expression or even how much time it took They just wanted to know... Hey! Way to go I like how you stayed inside the lines My crayon ranged all over they tried to say I was out of my mind You gotta color inside those lines or else your picture will be sloppy You need to learn to live inside of a world of orthodoxy Don't do this. Don't do that. Don't talk back Matter o fact, why don't you lay your head down on the mat and take a nap Don't talk without raising your hand. Don't stand so close to me when you breathe Don't touch hot stoves and GO BLOW YOUR NOSE! don't whipe that on your sleeve! don't hit. Don't throw a fit. Don't ask why. Don't cry out loud. Don't break that! Don't take that! Don't daydream. You still seem to have your head up in the CLOUDS Don't be all loud. And don't ever disrespect other people's property And don't color outside the lines. you gotta color pictures properly. Now as I began to sprout I figured out what that was all about We don't shout shout let it all out, just be inactive when it doubt Don't rock the boat or the vote. Don't miss work without a note and if things get to tough to cope... give up hope You have to have faith in this here system and just accept that it's all there is The valuable things is just that which brings that cha-ching to big businesses let it be understood that old growth woods don't take out ads in our publications Amber waves of grain won't train to sustain our campaigns on misbehavin nations That's why I can't stand these tree huggin types, like picture two trees fixin to fight where one been in the other's light and they been gettin drunk all night right like, "Evergreen you bein mean synthesizin all that junk! Throw your branches up I'm bout to knock your canopy off your trunk" "Poplar please, put up your leaves, you always in my breeze that's why your mom's a sleaze, opened her knees and got the Dutch Elm disease" Yeah that would be real whack, but it's human beings that act like that Like a tree is just paychecks for lumberjacks If you divide the guilt into millionths you ain't gotta pay it no mind You just gotta pick up that next crayon and color inside those lines Don't forget, don't fret, don't let that stinkin doorknob hit you Don't you agree that tree would probably look better as toilet tissue? Don't you see I'm busy? Don't bother me with this today Don't be in the loggers' way! Hey, don't you think air is overrated anyway? Don't give me no egg-head Mr. Wizard's World about "carbon sequestration" Don't you ever stop to consider that maybe deforestation is just a product of your overactive imagination? Don't always go blaming corporations for all of your so called "problems" with pollution Don't be absurd and use dirty words. I heard somebody said Revolu... ooops. How are you supposed to protect the planet? Don't axe me man. I'on't know. You'll figure sumpn out. Color inside the lines as you go So now we're all like what the heck I don't mean no disrespect I'm just sayin it seems we ain't allowed to do nothin unless it won't have much effect Jimmy Carter can't even tell peeps to turn down the heat and put on a sweater And a thousand clever letters to the editor never made my air quality any better I spoze I'm supposed to write to my congressman he claimed to be an environmentalist when he ran Oh except now he's on K street gettin somethin to eat with his lobbyist friend: the man. and savin these precious trees ain't really a part of HIS plan but that's fine, you just color inside those lines while you still can So that's the end of my song, my ramblin, scramblin and carryin on But, ah, Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone?
