The Earth Dies Screaming (V)




A warm dry wind is all that breaks the silence
Highways quiet, scars across the land
People lie, eyes closed, no longer dreaming
The earth dies screaming

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Your country needs you
Let's strike up the band

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Despite all odds
We must defend our land

Like scattered pebbles, cars lie silent waiting
Oil less engines seized by dirt and sand
Bodies hanging limp, no longer bleeding
The earth dies screaming

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Your country needs you
Let's strike up the band

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Despite all odds
We must defend our land

Half eaten meals lie rotting on the tables
Money clutched within a bony hand
Shutters down, the banks are not receiving
The earth dies screaming

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Your country needs you
Let's strike up the band

The earth dies screaming
The earth dies screaming
Despite all odds
We must defend our land

As Always You Were Wrong Again (V)



Raise the price of parking fines
Boost for the economy
If that don't work, we close the mines
Starve the poor of industry

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

We proved again, we rule the waves
Blow for white democracy
That Britains never shall be slaves
Long as they agree with me

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
We can see how much you've got

We'll close the roads, divide the land
Put out the rage that burns within
Break the link of dirty hands
At any cost we've got to win

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
We can see how much you've got

Keep them poor and wanting more
Deprive them of their basic rights
Hunger banging at their door
Take away their will to fight

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seem a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

As always you were wrong again
To us a little seems a lot
Don't turn your back on desperate men
'Cause we can see how much you've got

I Wont Close My Eyes (V)



(chorus)
I won`t close my eyes
To the sufferers plight.
In a world full of sadness
I won`t turn off my light.

Our cries for justice are shots in the dark
But our strength`s in our bite
And not in our bark
It`s time to stand
And shout it out loud
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

(chorus)

I won`t close my eyes
When I know that i`m right
When i`m drowning in tears
I won`t turn off my light.

We`re shown no respect
But that can`t break our pride,
When our backs to the wall
We won`t run and we won`t hide
It`s time to stand, face the oncoming crowd
And the louder we scream
The sweeter the sound.

(chorus)

I wont`t close my eyes
When the future don`t look bright
Though the road seems too long
I won`t turn off my light
In a world full of darkness,
I won`t turn off my light

Can't Stand Losing You (V)

The Police - So Lonely (V)

Voices Inside My Head (V)

Pet Buzz

I have this strange craving for fruit cake, sugar cookies and egg nog...

What does this all mean?

It's not about cigarette taxes...

You know what's funny?

When I was in my late teens and earlier twenties, I didn't have such the negative opinion of cops in general that I do today as a man in my fifties.

In my late teens and twenties I was never harassed by cops for no reason, the ones that I did interact... (with the exception of two racist suburban white cop motherfuckers who tried to arrest me for "stealing" my own bike) weren't insulting or abusive to me.

My opinion of the police began to change in the aftermath of the Rodney King incident and the exposť surround more suburban (Maryland) cops, this time around DC.

Then I went to Germany for four years. I considered it a palate cleanser. When I got back in 1999, I watched the TV show "COPS" with new eyes. I asked, "Why are these cops fucking with people for no good reason at all?"

Then the incidents with absusive police killings all over the country started pouring in. To the point today, where misconduct seems to be all too common and expected.

The kicker was checking out the PoliceOne.com website, where cops talk amongst themselves.

Today my opinion of the police in general has been completely poisoned. And I totally blame the police for this.

I know that this isn't about me. It never had to be about me. However, I do have empathy for others, for the victims of police abuse. I don't fear for myself today, as a man in my fifties. But I do fear for those young people in their teens and twenties today, who only know of the police as abusive and violent.
