    All this machinery making modern music
    Can still be open-hearted.
    Not so coldly charted, it's really just a question
    Of your honesty, yeah, your honesty.

    One likes to believe in the freedom of music,
    But glittering prizes and endless compromises
    Shatter the illusion of integrity.


    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)

    "Boy, don't you worry, you'll find yourself
    Follow your heart and nothing else
    And you can do this, oh baby, if you try
    All that I want for you, my son, is to be satisfied"

    "And be a simple kind of man
    Oh, be something you love and understand
    Baby be a simple kind of man
    Oh, won't you do this for me, son, if you can"

    Baby, be a simple, really simple man
    Oh, be something you love and understand

    Bit down on the bullet now
    I had a taste so sour
    I had to think of something sweet
    Love's like suicide
    Safe outside my gilded cage
    With an ounce of pain
    I wield a ton of rage
    Just like suicide

    This always gets blasted when I hear it on the radio. All these years later and these lyrics are still pertinent.

    If you ever need anything please don't hesitate
    to ask someone else first
    I'm too busy acting like I'm not naive.

      I was dreamin’ when I wrote this
      Forgive me if it goes astray
      But when I woke up this mornin’
      Coulda sworn it was judgment day


      The sky was all purple,
      There were people runnin’ everywhere
      Tryin’ 2 run from the destruction,
      U know I didn’t even care

      And as we wind on down the road
      Our shadows taller than our soul.
      There walks a lady we all know
      Who shines white light and wants to show
      How everything still turns to gold.
      And if you listen very hard
      The tune will come to you at last.
      When we all are one and one is all
      To be a rock and not to roll.

      How I wish, how I wish you were here.
      We're just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year,
      Running over the same old ground.
      What have we found? The same old fears.
      Wish you were here.

      La curandera is the young girl
      In a linen dress of white.
      She dances on black sand in the night
      In her linen dress of white.

      It was this voice and pen I used
      To make myself a man
      Now if you could try and reach inside
      And tear apart this sad cocoon

      This life is a monster...

      The proud broken hearted
      And close to the bone

      This life will leave you crippled

      Variously credited to Mark Twain or Edward Abbey.

      I wanna see you tonight
      Dancing in the endless moonlight
      In the parking lot in the headlights of cars
      Someplace on the moon
      Where they moved the drive-in theater
      Where I left the car that I can't find but I still got the keys to...

      A mass of promises
      Begin to rupture
      Like the pockets of the new world kings
      Like swollen stomachs in Appalachia
      Like the priest that fucks you as he whisper holy things

      The old man had a vision but it was hard for me to follow
      I do things my way and I pay a high price
      When I think back on the old man and the bus ride
      Now that I'm older I can see he was right

      Out here in the fields
      I fight for my meals
      I get my back into my living
      I don't need to fight
      To prove I'm right
      I don't need to be forgiven

      When you know that your time is close at hand,
      Maybe then you'll begin to understand
      Life down here is just a strange illusion.

      God has given you but one heart
      You are not a home for the hearts of your brothers
      And God don't care for your benevolence
      Anymore than he cares for the lack of it in others
      Nor does he care for you to sit
      At windows in judgement of the world He created
      While sorrows pile up around you
      Ugly, useless and over-inflated
