Elevator Song
The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. Terwilliker
5,000 Fingers of Dr. Terwilliker
FIRST FLOOR DUNGEON
Assorted simple tortures.
Molten lead, chopping blocks
And hot boiling oil.
 
SECOND FLOOR DUNGEON
Jewelry department.
Leg chains, ankle chains,
Neck chains, wrist chains, thumb screws
And nooses of the very finest rope.
 
THIRD FLOOR DUNGEON
Household appliances.
Spike beds, electric chairs,
gas chambers, roasting pots,
and scalping devices.
 
BASEMENT DUNGEON
Ev'ry body out!
Goodbye Horses
by Q Lazzarus
Q Lazzarus You told me, I see you rise
But, it always falls
I see you come, I see you go
You say, "All things pass into the night"
And I say, "Oh no sir I must say you're wrong
I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
Won't you listen to me

You told me, I've seen it all before
Been there, I've seen my hopes and dreams
A lying on the ground

I've seen the sky just begin to fall
And you say, "All things pass into the night"
And I say, "Oh no sir, I must say you're wrong
I must disagree, oh no sir, I must say you're wrong"
Won't you listen to me

Good-bye horses I'm flying over you
Good-bye horses I'm flying over you

What do these lyrics mean? Apparently, in a certain Eastern philosophy "horses" are
symbolic/representative of the five senses - the things that keep us tied to the
physical/material plane of existence. When you can transcend the limitations of
these senses, and achieve a higher level of consciousness, you are leaving the
"horses" behind - "flying over them." This song is about somebody who was so
affected by a loss that they decided to give up the things that keep them attached
to this world through emotion...

Mark Graham Have a Nice Day
Mark Graham
(From his Natural Selections album)
Come all you good Americans, the loyal brave and true.
Let's rap ourselves completely in the old red white and blue.
For Jesus and free enterprise, we must prepare the way.
And anyone who does not heed must be prepared to pay.


	Have a nice day, have a nice day.
	Don't heed those words of wickedness that might lead you astray.
	See hear and speak no evil, just work real hard and pray.
	God loves you and he hopes you'll have a nice day.


We can't abide with welfare, or believe in poverty.
Because this nation is the land of opportunity.
If you're lazy weak or stupid, you might not make the grade.
But why should we support you with the money we have made.


	Have a nice day, have a nice day.
	Don't heed those words of wickedness that might lead you astray.
	See hear and speak no evil, just work real hard and pray.
	God loves you and he hopes you'll have a nice day.


We believe in conservation, and will do all that we can.
To manage our resources for the benefit of man.
And we believe that judgment day is coming with all haste,
and anything that we don't use will then have gone to waste.


	Have a nice day, have a nice day.
	Don't heed those words of wickedness that might lead you astray.
	See hear and speak no evil, just work real hard and pray.
	God loves you and he hopes you'll have a nice day.


We believe in the creation, evolution is a sham.
And for you awful humanists we do not give a dam.
'Cuz we believe in science when the word of god agrees,
And we believe in science that destroys our enemies.


	Have a nice day, have a nice day.
	Don't heed those words of wickedness that might lead you astray.
	See hear and speak no evil, just work real hard and pray.
	God loves you and he hopes you'll have a nice day.

The Inner Light (1968)

Without going out of my door
I can know all things on Earth
Without looking out of my window
I could know the ways of Heaven             

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Without going out of your door
You can know all things on Earth
Without looking out of your window
You could know the ways of Heaven

The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows

Arrive without traveling
See all without looking
Do all without doing
 
 

Beware of Darkness (1970)
Watch out now, Take care 
Beware of falling swingers 
Falling all around you 
The pain that often Lingers 
In your fingertips 
Beware of darkness

Watch out now, Take care 
beware the thoughts that linger,       
Winding up inside your head. 
The hopelessness around you 
in the dead of night, 
Beware of Sadness.

It can hit you, 
It will hurt you, 
Aching more 
and make you sore 
And that is not 
what you are here for.

Watch out now, 
Take care 
beware of soft shoe shufflers, 
Dancing down the sidewalks. 
Pushing you in puddles
in the dead of night, 
Beware of ABKCO.

Watch out now, 
Take care 
beware of falling swingers, 
Crashing all around you 
The pain that often lingers
in your fingertips, 
Beware of Darkness

Greg Keeler What's Left of the West
Greg Keeler
Manifest destiny ain't had a rest
Ever since Horace Greeley said, "Young man go west."
So we've chewed up the mountain and spit out the plains
While we get indigestion from acid rain.
It's gotten so bad, the West ain't any place.
I'll ask ya "How are ya?" and you'll stare into space.
What's left of the West's where we've already been,
So Alaska Hawaii again.


	And Honolulu's no lulu. Fairbanks ain't so fair.
	Take a sip of the water; take a whiff of the air.
	Take some pictures of the wildlife: take a leak in the stream.
	Take a jet back to Cleveland and dream.


If trees went to congress and forests could vote,
Our chances of survival might not be so remote.
But since we don't give a damn as to who they'd elect,
Their absentee ballots are the greenhouse effect.
What's a boatload of timer? What's the whole human race?
I'll ask ya, "How are ya?" and you'll stare into space.
What's left of the West's where we've already been,
So Alaska Hawaii again.



	And Honolulu's no lulu. Fairbanks ain't so fair.
	Take a sip of the water; take a whiff of the air.
	Take some pictures of the wildlife: take a leak in the stream.
	Take a jet back to Cleveland and dream.



We scrub up with phosphates then flush down the suds
Till the banks of our rivers is bubbles and mud.
Just to stay sanitary, we've gone to these lengths.
Now our whole ecosystem's industrial strength.
It's so simple to screw up what can't be replaced.
I'll ask ya "How are ya?" and you'll stare into space.
What's left of the West's where we've already been,
So Alaska Hawaii again.



	And Honolulu's no lulu. Fairbanks ain't so fair.
	Take a sip of the water; take a whiff of the air.
	Take some pictures of the wildlife: take a leak in the stream.
	Take a jet back to Cleveland and dream.

Pentagram Burning Times
by Charles Murphy
In the cool of the evening, they used to gather, 'neath stars in the meadow, circled near an old oak tree.
At the times appointed by the seasons of the Earth, and the phases of the moon.
In the center of them stood a woman, equal with the others, and respected for her worth.
One of the many we call the Witches, the teachers and the keepers of the wisdom of the Earth
The people grew through the knowledge she gave them, herbs to heal their bodies, spells to make their spirits whole.
Hear them chanting healing incantations, calling forth the Wise Ones, celebrating in dance and song

    Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna
    Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna
    Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna

There were those who came to power through domination, and they bonded in the worship of a dead man on a cross.
They sought control of the common people by demanding allegiance to the church of Rome.
And the Pope declared the Inquisition, it was a war against the women whose power they feared.
In this Holocaust against the nature peoples, a million European women died.

And the tales are told of those who, by the hundreds, holding together, chose their deaths in the sea.
Chanting the praises of the Mother Goddess, a refusal of betrayal, women were dying to be free.

    Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna
    Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna
    Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna

Now the Earth is a witch, and the men still burn her! Stripping her down with mining and the poisons of their wars.
While to us the Earth is a healer, a teacher, a mother.
She's the weaver of the web of life that keeps us all alive.

She gives us the vision to see through the chaos.
She gives us the courage, it is our will to survive!

    Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecate, Demeter, Kali, Inanna...

What's up
4 Non Blondes


25 years of my life and still
I'm trying to get up that great big hill of hope
For a destination
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this
Brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
So I cry somethimes when I'm lying in bed
To get it all out what's in my head
Then I start feeling a little peculiar
So I wake in the morning and I step
Outside I take deep breath
I get real high
Then I scream from the top of my lungs
What's goin' on
And I say hey...
And I say hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
I said hey what's goin' on
And I try, oh my God do I try
I try all the time
In this institution
And I pray, oh my God do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution
So I cry sometimes when I'm lying in my bed
To get it all out what's in my head
Then I start feeling a little peculiar
So I wake in the morning and I step outside
I take a deep breaththen I get real high
Then I scream from the top of my lungs
What's goin' on
And I say hey...
And I say hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
I said hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
And I say hey what's goin' on
And I say hey...
I said hey what's goin' on
25 years of my life and still
I'm trying to get up that great big hill of hope

Monty Python's Galaxy Song Galaxy Song
Artist: Monty Python
Album: The Meaning Of Life

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.


The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

Imagine there's no Heaven

No hell below us 
Above us only sky 
Imagine all the people 
Living for today 

Imagine there's no countries 
It isn't hard to do 
Nothing to kill or die for 
And no religion too 
Imagine all the people 
Living life in peace 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will be as one 

Imagine no possessions 
I wonder if you can 
No need for greed or hunger 
A brotherhood of man 
Imagine all the people 
Sharing all the world 

You may say that I'm a dreamer 
But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will live as one

Mr. Wendal
by Arrested Development

Homeless in San Francisco by Roger J. Wendell - 05-01-2005
Here, have a dollar,
in fact no brotherman here, have two
Two dollars means a snack for me,
but it means a big deal to you
Be strong, serve God only,
know that if you do, beautiful heaven awaits
That's the poem I wrote for the first time
I saw a man with no clothes, no money, no plate
Mr.Wendal, that's his name,
no one ever knew his name cause he's a no-one
Never thought twice about spending on a ol' bum,
until I had the chance to really get to know one
Now that I know him, to give him money isn't charity
He gives me some knowledge, I buy him some shoes
And to think blacks spend all that money on big colleges,
still most of y'all come out confused


[CHORUS:] Go ahead, Mr.Wendal (2x)
Mr.Wendal has freedom,
a free that you and I think is dumb
Free to be without the worries of a quick to diss society
for Mr.Wendal's a bum
His only worries are sickness
and an occasional harassment by the police and their chase
Uncivilized we call him,
but I just saw him eat off the food we waste
Civilization, are we really civilized, yes or no ?
Who are we to judge ?
When thousands of innocent men could be brutally enslaved
and killed over a racist grudge
Mr.Wendal has tried to warn us about our ways
but we don't hear him talk
Is it his fault when we've gone too far,
and we got too far, cause on him we walk
Mr.Wendal, a man, a human in flesh,
but not by law
I feed you dignity to stand with pride,
realize that all in all you stand tall

Mr.Wendal, yeah yeah yeah, Lord, Mr.Wendal

A introspective sensitive singer songwriter song by Casey Neill
We're dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
Dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations

Say goodbye to plastic & goodbye to cars
No more convenience stores Hello to stars
No more Wall Street & no more Pentagon
Thinking about these things makes me happy

We're dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
Dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
Dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations

Goodbye to Polystyrene we'll put an end to the waste
There's no time for debating we have to make haste
If we're going to survive without computer program minds
We're going to have to can pop culture
& Say hello to campfires and stomping barefeet
& Naked amoebas hungry to eat
Hello to primal consciousness & love for the land
Now that coyotes are running the country

We're dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
Dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
Dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
 - Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.

Sayonara to suburbia & well manicured lawns
Bye bye Barbie and Ken doll pawns
No more developers or slimeball execs
Your condos are on fire

We're dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
Dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
Dancing on the ruins of multinational corporations
 - Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.

No more a Christian country we'll have Pagan dieties
& When we've destroyed technology we all will be free
The pavement will be ripped up & skyscrapers cut down
Yes! We are coming for your children

Secret Places
by Casey Neill  
The light of this campfire is seen across the fields
Where we sit talking of childhood
Warm wine in the cup & the stories of friends
All we know right now is that this is good
& The outside world cannot come in here
Our hallow safe place
Safe from the blades & the cold bayonets & the sunken 
                                          angry faces

Hey hey we can play
Through the backyards of our innocence
The sandobx & the swings & the ladder & the slide
The secret places where we used to hide

Laughter old friend it's good to see your face again
It's been so long since I heard your voice
Sometimes we forget when the grey gets us down
We are young and still have a choice
& The serious scenes & responsibilities weigh our minds 
                                til we are walking dead
But to joy I raise a glass & let the time roll past
All that matters is we're together here you said

Hey hey we can play
Through the backyards of our innocence
The sandobx & the swings & the ladder & the slide
The secret places where we used to hide

As we share in rememberance of a lighter hour we bring 
                                   the playground back
All the romping & the whistling & the crying & the kissing
& Our whole lives inside a backpack
Going through the boxes & the rooms of my mind
Digging out the cobwebs on the wall
Oh the bittersweet taste of the man I have become fades and 
                                          a young boy calls

Hey hey we can play
Through the backyards of our innocence
The sandobx & the swings & the ladder & the slide
The secret places where we used to hide

Hey hey we can play
Through the backyards of our innocence
The sandobx & the swings & the ladder & the slide
The secret places where we used to hide

The light of this campfire is seen across the fields
Where we sit talking of childhood
Warm wine in the cup & the stories of friends
All we know right now is that this is good

Dollar and a Quarter
Danny Dolinger
 by Danny Dolinger
If I had a dollar and if I had a quarter
I would buy for you a bottle of the very best malt liquor
A big ol' forty ouncer with a note that needs an answer
Look me in the eye and tell me how you can say no to love

We'll move out on the highway
And see the whole world my way, eat out of dumpsters
Out behind the health food stores
We'll eat lots of sprouts and berries that are just a little scary
Sleep beneath the bridges on the freeway of dreams

My karma is to good for you to worry 'bout the crazies
I love everybody and there's nothing that I own
And all of the axe murderes who like to pick up hitchhikers
Will take us where were goin' and then just leave us alone

So leave your daddy's mansion which has suffered from expansion
So many times he can no longer find his way around
Say goodbye to the high life and say hello to my life
Look me in the eye and tell me how can you say no to love

Well, If I had a dollar and if I had a quarter
I would buy for you a bottle of the very best malt liquor.

Snake River Salmon Red River
by Robert Hoyt
(from his Mind's Eye CD)
Since time immemorial they'd come from the
      sea
The thousands of miles then they'd end their
      journey
At the same place they began as small fry
They'd spill their loads then they'd die

A feast for the creatures and the humans too
But even then plenty got through
They found their birthplace, no one knows
      how
All we know is they don't come now

How did the Red River come by its name
Did it run red with salmon when the salmon
      runs came
But now all that has come to an end
Will the Red River run red again

Then the white humans came like some fatal
      disease
Built dams, brought in cows, and they cut
      down the trees
The salmon eggs died from the washed away
      land
Smothered by the mud and the sand

How did the Red River come by its name
Did it run red with salmon when the salmon
      runs came
But now all that has come to an end
Will the Red River run red again
 

By an Idaho river, I sing of the same
Lies a forest ranger station that bears its
      name
And if you ever should pass by that way
Stop, ask them, see what they say

How did the Red River come by its name
Did it run red with salmon when the salmon
      runs came
But now all that has come to an end
Will the Red River run red again

How did the Red River come by its name
Did it run red with salmon when the salmon
      runs came
But now all that has come to an end
Will the Red River run red again
Will the Red River run red again
Will the Red River ever run red again

Beds Are Buring
by Midnight Oil (Australia)

Midnight Oil Out where the river broke
The blood wood and the desert oak
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair's fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact's a fact
It belongs to them
Let's give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?
How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?

The time has come
To say fair's fair
To pay the rent, now
To pay our share

Four wheels scare the cockatoos
From Kintore East to Yuendemu
The western desert lives and breathes
In forty five degrees

The time has come
To say fair's fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact's a fact
It belongs to them
Let's give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?
How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?

The time has come
To say fair's fair
To pay the rent, now
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact's a fact
It belongs to them
We're gonna give it back

How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?

Wish You Were Here
by Pink Floyd

Wish You Were Here
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

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.
