It's no lie - we like our leaders stupid We wouldn't have it any other way Can't you tell from the way we keep repeating from the way we keep repeating keep repeating keep repeating MIckey Mouse radio telling us what to think and which scrubbing bubbles to shove down the sink The crap in our hair has made it all fall out It smashes our confidence, it scares us with doubt We lie in our boxes and stare at the wall, mind running in circles no stop from the fall Another day coming, another day gone so pick up a glass and we'll sing us a song It's no lie - we like our leaders stupid We wouldn't have it any other way Can't you tell from the way we keep repeating from the way we keep repeating keep repeating keep repeating So the fucking radio falls off of the fucking shelf and goes right into the goddamn sink so after I go with it down with the scrubbing bubbles down the drain around that goddamn u-bend and my hair starts falling out do you fucking believe it I mean jesus christ so out I come again and I'm running round and round and round in circles lies being told as the truth the truth being told me as lies the mind just runs in circles it never fucking stops each day it's another fucking mess and now I'm outta Scotch....

it's a set up you've gone set it off for the fall from the brig kick often hard and crawl it won't hurt at all it don't hurt at all it's always touch and go you're a stranger born to fight you've freed it up so go after all you will find you'll find you're not alone it don't hurt at all in a silence touch and go shaking hands we touch the ground trading sands we touch the ground it's a set up bonfide but who could blame us now we are human after all it don't hurt at all
1. the police have kicked in johnny's door for something he thought thirty years ago. johnny, more than a little paranoid by then, had departed for parts unknown the night before. 2. unable to take the madness any longer, candy has taken the vows, and for many years has dedicated her life to the poor diseased people living at and around the crackytown mission 3. bob is out of rehab again after doing celebrity time in jail. with a bus token and a new suit, he's sent out into the world he is ill equipped to deal with. 4. in time, johnny has met up with a girl who leads him down the garden path once more and introduces him to her uncle, peter the dealer. johnny falls hard for both again. 5. candy is loved by all for her tireless efforts with young and old alike. despite government program cuts and shrinking donations, candy always has time for all in need 6. bob, who never really came down, is existing in crackytown on handouts, meetings and heroin, hanging around talking to colorful non-existents and pissing himself. 7. one night johnny, in a meaningless drug haze looking for twenty dollars, had his throat cut from right to left in the third floor hecht co. bathroom on the outskirts of town by a gentleman well known but of questionable character. 8. a charity dinner in her honor and cash for the cause gave candy no good reason to say no, which she was apt to do. on the drive to the mayor's reception, candy sees a man abusing himself with a wall. she stops the limo and runs to render assistance where she is promptly dispatched by a beer truck. 9. with twenty dollars in his pocket and horror visions of the girl he once knew, bob hurls insults and acts out the brick to all who pass by. with his unholy grin and a child's mind, bob is rarely taken seriously.
The lifted lamp is guttering, near spent its fuel. Double-barred the golden door which, when it opens, opens on a chain. Where throngs poured through, police interrogate each refugee: admitting but the few who pass security and kiss the Book. Would Juarez get a visa from the State Department? Would the FBI clear Dvorak? - Deport the New World Symphony! Marti, the Cuban foe of Imperialism? Lorca, the anti-fascist poet? These men were all subversive as in earlier times Tom Payne, Pulaski, Lafayette. The authorities would surely bar such undesirables.
Looking through the blind eye You know, the middle one? Empty space where a heart once struck Ears that no longer hear A tongue so forked it doesn't ever agree Loins and groins past due for the wetlands Knees and feet barely able to keep up Flesh expanded by the fat that consumes it Taste buds that left home a long time ago Leaving a thirst, unquenched And a mind.... Mind? I don't mind.... Looking through the blind eye We are not here Looking through the blind eye We are nowhere at all
We dangled them upon the edge a week letting them savor death and then reprieved them from their jeopardy a space. The style is new. The abominations of his war moved Lincoln to unmanly tears. Perhaps he pondered scripture overmuch. We too bring God into our speeches. Fustian we spout as well to cloak our naked sword in words of righteous tone. Small matter if the skeptical are unconvinced. We have the countervailing force to make them cringe. No power makes us stoop to parley. Proud as pterodactyls in their prime are we, mighty as mammoths whose unrivaled thews the tundra binds in ice perpetual
