‘Every revolution needs a soundtrack.’

‘Every revolution needs a soundtrack.’

 

Sugar Man, America rejected you, six copies sold or so.

Fame laughed and left as your dreams shattered, playing

face-hidden, back-turned, in down-town bars and discos.

Just one of the six carried your voice to free our country.

 

Searching, it took a fan to reveal your struggle - hard days!

Once we taste your passion, ingest the word...

Coup

The people's voice is not a choice

The people's voice is out of fear

But even then you'll start to hear

Our message loud and clear

 

Show them that we have no fear

Show them that we have a choice

Come down all come down rejoice

To that ever soothing voice

The Digital Frontier - Bullshit Two Point Zero

We get our news in headlines and trending quotes

Despotic Tyrants hack computers to sway our votes

Egomaniacs trump their worth from their ivory towers

Politicians line their pockets with money that is ours

Whilst the fat cat bankers and the Global Corporation

Ruin our economies and sell our personal information

 

It seems the Arab Spring has sprung and broken

And Twits and...

Memories

The best role played on screen aint on screen

And life aint as pretty as it seems a beautiful dream of a ghetto where the grass aint that green 

But the life of a few young me with a pistol that they want to bang 

And they still think a black man hangs.. in the balance no it hangs in what if's and what of's

What if he picked up that book instead of that gun that teach bullets to fly an...

Come the Revolution

Come the revolution

there’ll be bullet holes in the wall

and stains of brains that mattered

but didn't matter to us all

 

We’ll fly our flags

and burn the rich

and sing our songs

and burn the rich

and right their wrongs

and burn the rich

and take their wealth

and launder it

and to the poor 

might give a bit

but they wont know 

how much of it

we’ll...

brain burp

A riddle of temporal instructions

Could Walk me towards Wilde's gaol
A man on each arm or 
Lear's pangs advise I hold the lens 
That destroys industrious ants but instead
I have allowed imbecilic strangers to call on
Disassociated maniacs,
Linked through meanness, to
Deluge the starving with the busy
Etiquette of disastrous investigation
They might fly kites overhead
To read six milli...

revolution

revolution runs better on stolen gasoline

every curtain will be stolen from

entitlement

each grain of dirt will raise

it’s raucous voice above

and over manners

 

while atoms bond

air will ignite for

blood is fuel enough

as gravity exists

believable in it’s force

 

secure each ideal

under fire from

truthful lies repeated

within freedom’s

monopoly of slaves
