Track Name: World Starvation
I can add apples and oranges, but I can't grow a damn thing
I know the history of the whole world, but I can't seem to shape my own destiny
I know 86,000 words, but I can't express what I'm feeling
I could fly a rocket ship to the sun but that won't help me fix world starvation
If I could give away enough apples and oranges, maybe I could build a community
Maybe if I knew some real history, I could make myself free
Maybe if we made our own words, I could express what I'm feeling
Maybe if we stopped trying to fly to the sun
Maybe we could find god here inside of everyone
Track Name: Helter Smelter
I just drive my car to work every day, didn't mean to hurt nobody
Like 100 million other people just like me, I couldn't tell there
wasn't any other way, I just couldn't realize but now I think I'll throw it away
Cuz there's 6 billion other people just like me
I was thinking about blowin' up all the automobiles
It seemed like such a good idea
You said hey man wouldn't that be hypocritical
No way man cuz mines' the first to go
Do it, Now, Stick the rag in, Light the fucked up
I was thinking about melting down all the cars in the whole world
Making brand new mountain bikes for all the boys and girls
You said hey man wouldn't that be helter skelter
No way man all we need is a giant smelter
Send it to Peoples Park, Berkeley CA, 94704
Ride a fucking bike
I just lit my car on fire today I didn't mean to hurt nobody
Just like 100 million other people just like me, I could tell there wasn't any other way
I finally realized and now it's going up in flames
Cuz there's 6 billion other people just like me
Having fun, since I was six, We're only bike terrorists
Five thirty, second Friday, Berkeley Bart
Track Name: Notion
It used to be that I knew exactly where I stood with you
To tell the truth it wasn't all that bad
But recently there's been change, and my whole life is rearranged
Now I wonder what the hell we had
To say it was nothing would be a lie
At least that's how it looks from where I stand
But how you feel, has been concealed
I'm falling and I don't know where I'll land
Did I mean anything to you
Did I mean anything to you, maybe not but I thought
That I meant something too
So I was A fool to spend all my time with you
Is that the way you see me now
But you won't tell me how you feel so I don't know what the deal is
Just let me know somehow
To say it was nothing would be a lie
At least that's how it looks from where I stand
But how you feel, has been concealed,
I'm falling and I don't know where I'll land
Did I mean anything to you
Did I mean anything to you, maybe not but I thought
That I meant something too
Track Name: Situations
I look at you and say that I love you
But it means much more than it seems
See you've been a friend to me, in so many different ways
I'll never forget how it feels to hold your hand
It's these things that we share that'll keep our dreams alive
Even though we seem so far away
You look at me and say that you love me
But it means much more than it seems
See we get so caught up in what everyone thinks is right
We sacrifice what we need
It's so easy to run but so hard not to look back
Situations are always open to change
Can you spare some change so I can ride Bart?
Track Name: I Keep On Tryin'
I don't care much for being a rich man, I want more for myself than that
And nothing's gonna keep me from my dreams
Momma I'm tired of trying to adjust, to your circumstantial love
Because on and on and on,
I wasn't good enough
But I keep on trying', I keep on tryin'
I hope someday you believe in me like I believe in you
Maybe I'll find what I'm looking for, maybe I'll always want more
I don't care too much for being a poor man, desperation don't suit me well
But I can't find a fair way of succeeding
Momma can you tell me why, the world is such a lonely place?
If every one is searching for peace and happiness
But I keep on tryin', I keep on tryin'
I hope someday you believe in my like I believe in you
Maybe I'll never understand, maybe I'll keep doing the best I can
The best I can
Track Name: Question
When I see the gleam in your eyes, I hesitate run and hide
Keep all the good things I'm thinkin' to myself
Should be no reason to hide cuz I know you'd be flattered
It's just that I'm afraid that you'd turn away
If I saw we can share some time, please keep in mind the importance is in two people reaching out
If you question my motives, just let down your walls
I will look at you and you'll see what's in me
It's just a fantasy I have of being with you, so I can show you how much you mean to me
Can you see me smilin' at you I can see you smilin' at me or is it just that I'm living in a dream
Track Name: Violation
In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, for love of god and me and you
In 1941 we intervened to stop the spread of world fascism
Listen up boys and girls it's the history of the whole world, and you know it's true
6 million Jews they call it genocide, 100 million Native Americans, what an unfortunate
price for today's quality of life
All people, Every person experiences violation
When told what is right and told what is wrong and told what
to do under the threat of violent intimidation
Virus kills us now virus kills us then over and over and again and again
Sun goes down in my town, Berkeley California sold me on too many dreams
Of justice and brotherhood
Sun goes down in my town, Berkeley California sold me on too many dreams
Of peace on the earth in our time
In 1969 my forefathers said stop! this land is hers and his and yours and mine
In 1992 Rosebud sailed the sky so blue, she gave her life for me and you
All people, every person experiences violation
When told what is right and told what is wrong
And told what to do under the threat of violent intimidation
Bullets kill us now bullets kill us then over and over and again and again
Sun goes down in my town
I believe in me
I make my dreams real
Track Name: Fifteen
Lookin' through the rain to see where the love has gone
But it will shower us again
I wish there was somethin' I could have done
To keep the love I had for you
Fifteen is lookin' for some answers she says, she'll risk it all to find the truth
But in the long run she's got nothin' to lose, only her dreams can come true
So I send her on her way she hesitates, not too sure it's the right thing to do
She wants to compare me to the others, but our love won't carry through
Fifteens' looking for somethin' she's not too sure maybe it's what she left behind
She just turns her back on the past, spreads her wings she's free at last
Fifteen is lookin' for some answers she says, she'll risk it all to find the truth
But in the long run she's got nothin' to lose, only her dreams can come true
Free at Last.
Track Name: Food Not Bombs
I was trying to kick speed, so I followed my friend Steve
We went to the chateau, we cut up so many vegetables
We proceeded to get high, and to my surprise
I had achieved an appetite, all my paranoia dissolved into the sunlight
I was looking for a change
I was looking for a plan
I was looking for some kind of healing, I was looking for peace of mind
I found peace of mind,
I found healing of body
I found a way to kill the money demon, I found rest in my soul
Believe me when I found out, what sleep is all about
Believe me I found out what SOUP is all about
Food not Bombs, bikes not bombs, community not bombs, heal the world
Free the Land, free the weed, free our bodies free our minds.
Track Name: Predisposition
I met a girl who was 15 years old, she seemed so on top of the whole world
But I was blind to the facts, she had a predisposition towards being attacked
I met a girl who was 15 years old, she seemed free to roam the whole world
But I couldn't realize, she was running for her life
See, mama taught me how to take it, and I guess it's important to survive
But now my only wish is to extract the poison from my mind
Some people have abused me so bad, that now I do it to myself
And now my only wish is to kill the poison and find some kind of health
I met a boy who was 15 years old, he just wanted someone he could always hold
Which turned into control, which turned into paranoid narcoleptic vision
I met a boy who was 15 years old, he was so hell bent on control
He took the offered gender role, he had a sickness right down to his soul
See, mama taught me to live in a Rage, Dad taught me how to live in a cage
And now my only wish is to remove the poison from my mind
Can you hear me brother
We got so much work to do
We're as fascist towards some of us
As the pigs who try to keep down me and you
We Need an army of equals
Track Name: Abel's Song
I was a lonely kid I use to read dictionaries
Compared to things I've done since it seems quite ordinary
I can hear her outside spitting up her blood
She's crying in the parking lot it hurts it really hurts a lot
To lave this lonely living hell behind
And now I know I'm not the only one
And I know that you can hear me just as sure as there's a sun
Now I'm outside tapping on your door
You pretend like it doesn't matter alone in bed but there's my shadow carpeting your walkway to my mind
Could've been me could've been you it had to be one of us
But heck I'd like to think that we had much more to discuss
Someone came and punched her in the face
Was he drunk was he insane I held him there till the cops came
And drove him off somewhere to sleep it off
Lady it's just your band luck the men just want to fuck and fuck and leave you nowhere on a cold November night
Track Name: In Our World
In our world, we got six billion
And some might say, conflict is unavoidable
But I think we got choices, so I'll say everything will be alright
Don't you know, it's just a simple choice we can choose to
get along with each other, or go down, bow down to your hate
and ours fears, bow down to our fists and our guns, but I think
we know what that gets us, don't you know
Violence is suicide
In the name of love-lay down your pride and your ego
In the name of love-lay down your gangs and your guns
In the name of love-lay down your law and your order
In the name of love-lay down your countries, your borders
In the name of love-lay down your sword and shield, down by the river side
In our world, we got all we need
So I say conflict is insanity
And I know we got choices
And so I saw, everything will be alright
Peace on Earth
