    When a person is born, A sorrow is also born.
    When War fiercely rages, The bloodshed is immeasurably
     I'm burning, I'm burning, Throw more oil on the fire
    I'm drowning, I'm drowning, Throw me in a sea that's deep.

    If I could afford a breakfast
    Of bacon, toast and scrambled eggs
    If I hadn't been so reckless
    When I lost my other leg

    If there was an open doorway
    Where I could be warm and dry
    And visit with some memories
    I made once upon a time..

    Life would be wonderful..

    Now Tom said "Mom, wherever there's a cop beatin' a guy 
    Wherever a hungry newborn baby cries
    Where there's a fight against the blood and hatred in the air
    Look for me mom I'll be there
    Wherever there's somebody fightin' for a place to stand
    Or a decent job or a helpin' hand
    Wherever somebody's strugglin' to be free
    Look in their eyes Mom you'll see me."

    ''It's the rainy season where I'm living
    Death comes leaping out of every doorway
    Wasting you for money, for your clothes
    And for your nothing
    Entire towns being washed away
    Favelas exploding on inflammable spillways
    Lynch-mobs, death squads, babies being born without brains
    The mad heat and the relentless rains
    Well if you stick your arm into that hole
    It comes out shit up to the bone
    And with her kisses bubbling on my lips
    I swiped the rain and nearly missed
    And then I went on down the road
    He went on down that road''

    Mona tried to tell me
    To stay away from the train line
    She said that all the railroad men
    Just drink up your blood like wine
    An' I said, "Oh, I didn't know that
    But then again, there's only one I've met
    An' he just smoked my eyelids
    An' punched my cigarette"

    Once again...

    ''He let himself scream, he let himself cry
    let himself reach the other side
    there was no christ, there was no cross
    just forgiveness, allowed himself
    accepted the past, then set it free
    oh and it ran off like an animal with ease
    he holds the bruise?, he holds their star
    in his pure arms, in his clear heart
    He's safe now, he's back in her breast
    he saw his path, and changed it, chased it, at last''

    A modern day musical warrior on percussion lost a year ago today Neil Pear-t. A master, The Professor and to me the GREATEST lyricist/drummer ever in rock music. He is gone from this life, but his music will live on forever.....2112.

    A modern-day warrior

    Mean mean stride
    Today’s Tom Sawyer
    Mean mean pride

    Though his mind is not for rent
    Don’t put him down as arrogant
    His reserve, a quiet defense
    Riding out the day’s events –
    The river

    What you say about his company
    Is what you say about society
    -Catch the mist – Catch the myth
    -Catch the mystery – Catch the drift.....


    Peace

    *We CAN bomb the World to pieces, but we CAN'T bomb it into PEACE*...Michael Franti

    *MUSIC IS the expression of EMOTION.....and that POLITICS IS merely the DECOY of PERCEPTION*
    .....song_Music & Politics....Michael Franti

    *The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite INSANE*....Nikola Tesla(a man who shaped our world of electricity with his futuristic inventions)

     His reserve is a quiet defense, riding out the days events. The river.

    So cool for the 1000s of times I heard that song never knew what they were.

    Sometimes I could tune in a little more, but those lyrics suit me fine.

    Nothing that you say will release you
    Nothing that you pray would forgive you
    Nothing's what your words mean to me
    Something that you did will destroy me
    Something that you said will stay with me
    Long after you're dead and gone

    If flesh could crawl
    My skin would fall
    From off my bones
    And run away from here
    As far from God
    As heaven is wide
    As far from God
    As angels can fly

    If holy is as holy does
    This house will burn straight down to hell
    And take its conscience with it as it falls
    Nothing said could change the fact
    My trust was blind, you broke the pact
    If God's my witness, God must be blind

    If flesh could crawl
    My skin would fall
    From off my bones
    And run away from here
    As far from God
    As heaven is wide
    As far from God
    As angels can fly

    I wish, I wish
    I wish, I wish

    Take it back, I dare you, take it back
    No, you can't, you should have thought of that
    What's inside a man that goes so wrong?
    Choke on guilt, that's far too good for you
    Say one word, I'll laugh and bury you
    And leave you in the place where you left me

    If flesh could crawl
    My skin would fall
    From off my bones
    And run away from here
    As far from God
    As heaven is wide
    As far from God
    As angels can fly

    I wish I could fly
    As angels can fly

    I wish, I wish

    ''I see you standing on the other side
    I don't know how the river got so wide
    I loved you baby, way back when
    And all the bridges are burning that we might have crossed
    But I feel so close to everything that we lost
    We'll never, we'll never have to lose it again''
