about

This song is a PSA for the modern world filled with conflict, and financial inequality. The setting is a public speaking event, like a rally, march, protest or even a political compaign; the audience is very diverse and engaged. The message is "we are all one but the illusion of difference has made us all accept the belief that war and inequality are inevitable conditions of life. If we unified we could literally create an incredibly bountiful future for everyone."

lyrics

Verse 1
Keep it moving not observant public servant out of service
Out of order get in line don’t deserve this that’s absurd its
Best practice is Sunday masses nightly news feeds the masses
Mass extinction on the brink of human evolution magic
Cult like culture distribution independent music matters
Human trafficking is sadder human trafficking is sadder
Collective consciousness could raise the bar with our purchase power
Most are cowards disavow me or condemn and call me sour
I can take it I been called every name but fake
To my friends I am ThatsGoodness to my enemies I’m strange
To myself I’m just a nightmare sleep is something I can spare
Burn the wick at both ends work and research because I care
Prayer and meditation are my forms of medication
Super saturated anti-biotic resistant nation
Passive in the face of injustice watching waiting
Chorus 2x
Do I have your attention now?
Throw your fear and apprehension out
While you waiting for the sun to come down
You missing everything that life is about
Verse 2
They’re not like me their God’s frightening
They don’t like me they’re so right wing
War’s the right thing thunder lightning
More and bigger buy brand new things
I want options I need choices
Take my freedoms ignore our voices
Safety’s got its price and I’m ready to pay it
Take me to the heights of the dragon so I can slay him
With the lives of our soldiers lost we’ll never know the true cost
Leave me in the depths to decay where I can’t shake it off
The make ups caked up for the cameras I can’t take it off
For fifteen I sold my soul so what’s the loss
They’re not like me their God’s frightening
They don’t like me they’re not right wing
War’s the right thing thunder lightning
More and bigger buy brand new things
We are the greatest they are all evil
They are the axis we are the people
They are the other created unequal
We want justice they need democracy
It is their right so says our plutocracy
And they’ll embrace us or we’ll erase em
Off the face of the earth in this war on terrorism
This war will never end this war will never end
This war will never end this war will never end
(Silence – 1 measure)
Chorus 2x
Do I have your attention now?
Throw your fear and apprehension out
While you waiting for the sun to come down
You missing everything that life is about
