Turbid Freedom

Pet Shop Boys
We’re All Criminals Now

Hey, hey
Don’t ask me how
We’ve changed
We’re all criminals now
Hey, hey
Don’t ask me how
We’re blamed
We’re all criminals now

Just a routine procedure
(We’re watching you)
A sample of your DNA
(The things you do)
Queuing to be finger-printed
(You could be dangerous)
Going to the USA
Another routine procedure
(We’re on your case)
Driving in your car
(We’ve seen your face)
Stopped and searched and questioned
(Some place before)
Can you prove who you are?
Hey, hey
Don’t ask me how
We’ve changed
We’re all criminals now
Hey, hey
Don’t ask me how
We’ve been framed
We’re all criminals now

Hey, hey, hey
We’re all criminals now
Hey, hey, hey
We’re all criminals now

Got the bus to the station
Music playing in my head
Ran to get on the tube train
Police shot someone dead

Don’t ask me how We’re all criminals now

Hey, hey
Don’t ask me how
We’re blamed
We’re all criminals now
Hey, hey
Don’t ask me how
We’ve been framed
We’re all criminals now

Euphonious Song On Mankind

| October 12, 2008 12:52 pm

Great song by Pet Shop Boys called “What Keeps Mankind Alive?:

You gentlemen who think you have a mission
to purge us of the seven deadly sins
should first sort out the basic food position
then start your preaching, that’s where it begins

You lot who preach restraint and watch your waist as well
should learn for all time how the world is run
However much you twist, whatever lies you tell
food is the first thing, morals follow on
So first make sure that those who now are starving
get proper helpings when we all start carving

What keeps mankind alive? The fact that millions
are daily tortured, stifled, punished, silenced, oppressed

Mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
at keeping its humanity repressed
For once you must not try to shirk the facts
Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts

You say the girls may strip with your permission
You draw the line dividing art from sin
So first sort out the basic food position
then start your preaching, that’s where it begins

You lot who bank on your desires and our disgust
should learn for all time how the world is run
Whatever lies you tell, however much you twist
food is the first thing, morals follow on
So first make sure that those who now are starving
get proper helpings when we all start carving

What keeps mankind alive? The fact that millions
are daily tortured, stifled, punished, silenced, oppressed
Mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
at keeping its humanity repressed
For once you must not try to shirk the facts
Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts

Mankind can keep alive thanks to its brilliance
at keeping its humanity repressed
For once you must not try to shirk the facts
Mankind is kept alive by bestial acts

Laudable Singing

What a perfect week for a great biking song:

S-s-s-s A-a-a-a F-f-f-f E-e-e-e T-t-t-t Y-y-y-y
Safe, bike!

[Spoken]
We can bike if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
‘Cause your friends don’t bike and if they don’t bike
Well they’re no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can bike

[Sung]
We can bike if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
‘Cause your friends don’t bike and if they don’t bike
Well they’re no friends of mine
I say, we can go where we want to
A place where they will never find
And we can act like we come from out of this world
Leave the real one far behind
And we can bike
Bike!

We can go when we want to
Morning is young and so am I
And we can dress real neat from our helmets to our feet
And surprise ‘em with the victory cry
Say, we can act if want to
If we don’t nobody will
And you can act real rude and totally removed
And I can act like an imbecile

[Refrain]
I say, we can bike, we can bike
Everything out of control
We can bike, we can bike
We’re doing it from wall to wall
We can bike, we can bike
Everybody look at your hands
We can bike, we can bike
Everybody takin’ the cha-a-a-ance

Safety bike
Is it safe to bike
Is it safe to bike

S-s-s-s A-a-a-a F-f-f-f E-e-e-e T-t-t-t Y-y-y-y
Safe, bike!

We can bike if we want to
We’ve got all your life and mine
As long as we abuse it, never gonna lose it
Everything’ll work out right
I say, we can bike if we want to
We can leave your friends behind
‘Cause your friends don’t bike and if they don’t bike
Well they’re no friends of mine

[Refrain]

Is it safe to bike, oh is it safe to bike [6x]
Is it safe to bike

Sempiternal Song Stuck in my Head

| July 29, 2008 9:11 am

What do you do when you have a song stuck in your head? How do you get rid of it? Well, why get rid of it in the first place? Me, well, I enjoy the ride. Especially if song is as awesome song as:

Moby ~ “Dream About Me”

Babe
Oh, dream about me
Lie
On the phone to me

Tell me no truth
If it is bad
There’s enough in my life
To make me so sad

Just dream about
Colour fills our lives
Just dream about
Someone else tonight

Babe
Oh, dream about me
On the phone
Talking quietly

I wanna be yours
I want you be mine
Against red skies
For all time

So dream about us
When you’re alone
Just dream about
How I will let go

Hand
Hand

Babe
Oh, dream about me
Lie
On the phone to me

Tell me no truth
If it is bad
There’s enough in my life
To make me so sad

Just dream about
Colour fills our lives
Just dream about
Someone else tonight

Just dream about
Colour fills our song
Just dream about
How I will let go

Condign Destruction

Michael Franti – Bomb The World

Please tell me the reason
Behind the colors that you fly
Love just one nation
And the whole world we divide
You say you’re “sorry”
Say, “there is no other choice”
But god bless the people them
Who cannot raise their voice
(chorus)

We can chase down all our enemies
Bring them to their knees
We can bomb the world to pieces
But we can’t bomb it into peace
Whoa we may even find a solution
To hunger and disease
We can bomb the world to pieces
But we can’t bomb it into peace

Violence brings one thing
More more of the same
Military madness
The smell of flesh and burning pain
So i sing out to the masses
Stand up if you’re still sane!
To all of us gone crazy
I sing this one refrain
(chorus)

And i sing power to the peaceful
Love to the people y’all
Power to the peaceful
Love to the people y’all

Bomb the world (armageddon version)

I don’t understand the whole reason why
You tellin’ us all that we need to unify
Rally round the flag
And beat the drums of war
Sing the same old songs
Ya know we heard ‘em all before
You tellin’ me it’s unpatriotic
But i call it what i see it
When i see it’s idiotic
The tears of one mother
Are the same as any other
Drop food on the kids
While you’re murderin’ their fathers
But don’t bother to show it on cnn
Brothers and sisters don’t believe them
It’s not a war against evil
It’s really just revenge
Engaged on the poorest by the same rich men
Fight terrorists wherever they be found
But why you not bombing tim mcveigh’s hometown
You can say what you want propaganda television
But all bombing is terrorism
(chorus)

We can chase down all our enemies
Bring them to their knees
We can bomb the world to pieces
But we can’t bomb it into peace
Whoa we may even find a solution
To hunger and disease
We can bomb the world to pieces
But we can’t bomb it into peace

911
Fire in the skies
Many people died
And no one even really knows why
They tellin’ lies of division and fear
We yelled and cried
No one listened for years
But like, “who put us here?”
And who’s responsible?
Well, there’s no debatin’
Cause if they ask me i say
It’s big corporations
World trade organization
Tri-lateral action
International sanctions, satan
Seems like it’ll be an endless price tag
Of wars tremendous
And most disturbingly
The death toll is so horrendous
So i send this to those
Who say they defend us
Send us into harm’s way
We should all make a rememberence that
This is bigger than terrorism
Blood is blood is blood and um
Love is true vision
Who will listen?
How many songs it takes for you to see
You can bomb the world to pieces
You can’t bomb it into peace

(chorus)

Power to the peaceful
And i say, love to the people y’all
Power to the peaceful
And i say, love to the people y’all
(chorus)
