the age of self

the age of self They say the working class is dead , we're all consumers now They say that we have moved ahead – we're all just people now There's people doing 'frightfully well' there's others on the shelf But never mind the second kind this is the age of self They say we need new images to help our movement grow They say that life is broader based as if we didn't know While Martin J. and Robert M. play with printer's ink The workers 'round the world still die for Rio Tinto Zinc And it seems to me if we forget our roots and where we stand The movement will disintegrate like castles built on sand ...

everything and nothing

everything and nothing I met a guy one night who came up to me with his hand out, I said, “oh, no, no.” He said, “yeah, yeah, listen, man, it’s not what you think. I don’t want any money. I just want to be your friend.” He said, “my name is Charlie. What’s your name? How you doing?” He said, “that’s all I wanted, see.” He went all the way around the block, came all the way back, and then when he came around the corner, he saw me, he said, “hey, Tom, it’s your old buddy Charlie. Could you loan me a couple of bucks?” I got a kick out of that. - Tom Waits ...

dead man theme

dead man theme The ancient tradition that the world will be consumed in fire at the end of six thousand years is true, as I have heard from Hell. The whole creation will be consumed and appear infinite and holy whereas it now appears finite, and corrupt. This will come to pass by an improvement of sensual enjoyment. If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is - infinite. "Theme From Dead Man" is a song by Neil Young. ...

Why are you so captivating? Why are you so aggravating? And for me must I keep on waiting patiently?
