'Jet Set Ready'
"So I ask myself, are we too far gone?
Because ever since we put our hands on the mill, we’ve been cutting strong.
Blind to life and the consequences of taking life.
We’re not jet set ready. We’re sinking with the ship we built too quickly.
But we’ll shift and reshift the blame to keep it off our conscience that we helped to build it.
So long to the simple song, the balanced one that’s long gone forgotten by more than some.
Minds burned while young by pioneers gone wrong.
Who won’t cease to live without oppressing life…
And so long to the ways that we knew fit with the world that we lived in.
They didn’t generate enough wealth or power when we can take and take until we have it all.
We live in a gracious world, a forgiving world, and show our thanks with industry.
Open eyes can see while open mouths could speak to change or rearrange what should not be taken."
(Hot Water Music - No Division)
"it’s a matter of prescience but not the science fiction kind it’s all about ignorance, and greed, and miracles for the blind the media parading, disjointed politics founded on petro-chemical plunder and we’re its hostages
if you stand to reason you’re in the game the rules may be elusive but our pieces are the same and you know if one goes down we all go down as well the balance is precarious as anyone can tell this world’s going to hell
Don’t allow this mythologic hopeful monster to exact it’s price Kyoto now! We can’t do nothing and think someone else will make it right
You might not think it matters now but what if you are wrong you might not think there’s any wisdom in a fucked up punk rock song but the way it is cannot persist for long, a brutal sun is rising on our sick horizon it’s in the way we live our lives exactly like the double edge of a cold familiar knife and supremacy weighs heavy on the day it’s never really what you own but what you threw away and how much did you pay? in your dreams you saw a steady state a bounty for eternity
- silent screams –
but now the wisdom that sustains us is in full retreat
Don’t allow this mythologic hopeful monster isn’t worth the risk Kyoto now! We can’t have vision for the future if it can’t be fixed
We need a fresh and new religion to run our lives
Hand in hand
The arid torpor of our lives will be our demise"
(Bad Religion - The Process of Belief)
