It was supposed to be The dawn of a new age; A new set of dialogue On a more balanced stage With better lines for The actors to deliver. It was supposed to start in The sixties and last forever.
We didn’t really know for sure What this Aquarius stuff was But it seemed to us to be A metaphysical enough cause, To change the way we acted And to shout down the rest; To face the demagogues Then put them to the test.
We stopped wearing uniforms That said we went along With the hard-assed leaders. We put a lot of it in our songs. We called them what they were Greedy warmongering ******. We protested and picketed And promised so much more.
We spoke out loudly on TV And in crowds in the streets That we were through will genocide And would not accept defeat. We cried out that our government Had assumed the role of villain And was murdering for no reason Not just men, but even children.
But, we let it all die down; We let the government slide On investigating the truth And keeping the truth inside A carefully chosen batch of Criminals in public office. We let them go on making war And making money off us.
We let them cheat and lie And re-write acceptable laws To support their bloodthirstiness And we gave up on our cause. Maybe all that protesting gave All our marching feet limps. Or maybe it’s because all along We were just a bunch of wimps.
