Lyrics to Someday (August 29, 1968):

Would you look around you now
And tell me what you see
Faces full of hate and fear
Faces full of me
Do you feel the rumblings
As your head comes crumbling down
Do you know what I mean
Run, you better, run you know
The End is getting near
Feel the wind of something hard
Come whistling past your ear
As they try to get you
Where it will upset you
Down
Now you know what I mean
Someday you will see how long
We've waited for the time
To show you how we've died
To get together with you all
Twist and turn your head around
'Till everything's unclear
Twist and turn your arm around
Until it is not there
And they'd love to burn you
Or at least to turn you around
Now you know what I mean
Can you look around you now
And tell us what's to be
Can you look inside yourself
And tell us what you see
As you feel the rumblings
As your head comes crumbling down
And you know what I mean
Someday you will see how long
We've been waiting for the time
To show you how we've died
To get together with you all

1. Well, some of us are, anyway.
Probably none of the Republicans.
Or the tea party people.

2. Everyone has been making fun of us "boomer/hippies" for years
Making fun of our 60s protests, dismissing what we did back then, calling us selfish. And now they're stealing all of our old chants. Go figure. The kids eventually come around, I guess.

Have you tried this one yet: Out of the buildings and into the streets!

4. If we're recalling the times ...
this was the real thing. These were the guys who were in the thick of it. I have seen the FBI footage of them singing in Grant Park in 68, but I'm afraid it got pulled off the market. But this will do. Ladies and gentlemen, the MC5
