You once stood for something.
When they told you "NO"
you stood like a black-eyed-susan.
like the tao.
but when they beat you, betrayed you,
hogtied and pepper sprayed you,
you got angry.
You did things that soiled your good name.
I guess you just should have learned to take it,
like the tao.
like the tao, and wait.
like the tao and let the waters rise.
like the tao and overcome.
the weak overcome the tyranny of man with numbers.
as each drop of water equally starts the flood.
like each living being that has ever thought
"I will overcome."
I will overcome.
I WILL OVERCOME.
WE WILL OVERCOME.
OR AT LEAST WE'LL DIE TRYING YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!
Glances only serve as the flash and your stare
holds the entire motion picture of what
could have been a future.
Your heart seeks ending supply of
barren caves, kicking screaming
to be loved yet neither side is really
Concocted from the decades past
more scripting, stripping down another pole
wriggling, wading about like maniacal
headless, egg busting junkie.
They call it a revolution or a new tab
with in the big book of life I'm just
gonna stand here watch it tick by
fighting against your silly plight.
Maybe they got it right
the first time,
Love the earth more than
Kiss the rain as it kisses
Savor the sunlight when it
lights the sky,
Nourish the soul with
But above all love life
with bare feet.
Remember that time
at the beach.
You were the first one
with your clothes off.
I think you were already
a little drunk
but you would have
You never had anything to hide.
Because of you
I had the strength to stand
bare-breasted and unafraid
to all of the Atlantic Ocean
and sing about sunshine and having life.
You gave a number of people
the courage to take their shells off that night.
A bunch of naked hippies on the beach
like a flock of seagulls with a little
We thought we could change
the world back then,
and I guess we still can.

AB: flowers and trees,
A thousand degrees,
We screw around in the winter,
But we could never freeze,
FNB: Leaves falling,
The icy and cold wind is somewhat appalling,
AB: Lost In Translation,
Free extended vacations,
Let's perform a crisis,
FNB: Out in the dainty,
I reach for your hand and my worries are lost,
But winter will fade,
And in comes the sun,
The cold left some ice that cant be undone,
AB: summer time when the spirit of a young god
Lay to rest,
Flowers in your hair signifies,
That you're at your best,
Love music and tattoos,
And some grain of sand,
Sitting in the corn fields,
We can't lose,
To a world created by man.
