EDEN COME

A protest for William S. Burroughs, Gabriel D’Annunzio & Diogenes.

Prisoners of the Earth
I’ve got a message for you
There’s minutes to go,
What can people even do?
Thee were born to be free
Once thrones we toppled down
Took a few centuries
Now corporations are crowned

Lost our faith and credit, now we service debt
The pyramid scheme’s always been a fucking wreck
Those too few who wield power and force
Maintain their positions by glower and farce

Are you true blue or are you blood red?
Only two choices the TV says
This ‘uh or that ‘er, it just doesn’t matter
All I know is that the pigs get fatter

Are you done drowning?
Then rupture the banks.
They call people pirates
But they’ve made the future a plank.
What are they so worried about?
This sinking ship’s already rigged.
Just who to arrest when
Invisible hands are so big?

I have seen the glory of the crumbling of the lie
If we’re to be free the old system must die
Since they own society, remint the currency
The old coin was inscribed with peace and liberty.

Fiat? Defy that. Why don’t we try that.
They push “Thou shall not” but I don’t buy that.
Resist it. Rise up. Harken. Never tire.
Rewrite their script or set it on fire.

Are you true blue or are you blood red?
Only two choices the TV says
This ‘uh or that ‘er, it just doesn’t matter
Everybody knows they listen to our chatter
The ozone is ripped the land is shattered
So if you’re really true blue and super blood red
Awake from History. We’re ruled by the dead
Now just minutes to go, that’s what I said

“Rot in place, know your number”
“Pay your bills, don’t be a bummer”
There’s a storm coming, can you hear the thunder?
Sound of people marching to a dissident drummer

We may live in the New World Order
So? Edens grow like dandelions in summer
Be wise and worry about the Alphabet gangs
You gotta wonder what kinda flag they hang

So are you true blue or are you blood red?
Only two choices the TV says
This ‘uh or that ‘er, it just doesn’t matter
The Constitution’s gone, redacted and tattered
So you’re super true blue and really blood red
Time to mix ‘em up and get violet instead
Yeah I want a reaction, at last real action.
This is a fiction. Join the Faction.

Have your say
