    Jethro Tull - Wind Up

    When I was young and they packed me off to school
    and taught me how not to play the game,
    I didn't mind if they groomed me for success,
    or if they said that I was a fool.
    So I left there in the morning
    with their God tucked underneath my arm --
    their half-assed smiles and the book of rules.
    So I asked this God a question
    and by way of firm reply,
    He said -- I'm not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays.
    So to my old headmaster (and to anyone who cares):
    before I'm through I'd like to say my prayers --
    I don't believe you:
    you had the whole damn thing all wrong --
    He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays.
    Well you can excomunicate me on my way to Sunday school
    and have all the bishops harmonize these lines --
    how do you dare tell me that I'm my Father's son
    when that was just an accident of Birth.
    I'd rather look around me -- compose a better song
    `cos that's the honest measure of my worth.
    In your pomp and all your glory you're a poorer man than me,
    as you lick the boots of death born out of fear.
    I don't believe you:
    you had the whole damn thing all wrong --
    He's not the kind you have to wind up on Sundays.

    So Did We

    By Isis - From Panopticon

    Our skin worn thin
    Our bones exposed
    Life reduced to ticks'


    From forest caves and azure skies
    We crash upon this earth
    The years they passed so did we
    But resistance would be brought

    I wish I was in de land ob cotton,
    Old times dar am not forgotten,
    Look away! Look away!
    Look away! Dixie Land.
    In Dixie Land whar I was born in
    Early on one frosty mornin'.
    Look away! Look away!
    Look away! Dixie Land.

    Refrain:
    Den I wish I was in Dixie,
    Hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie Land I'll took my stand,
    To lib an' die in Dixie,
    |: Away, away,
    Away down south in Dixie. :|

    Pretty slick stuff and the first thing I've gotten into since the downloading of music illegally has resumed.

    Buffalo Springfield - Nowadays Clancy Can't Even Sing

    Who's that stomping all over my face?
    Where's that silhouette I'm trying to trace?
    Who's putting sponge in the bells I once rung
    And taking my gypsy before she's begun
    To singing the meaning of what's in my mind
    Before I can take home what's rightfully mine.
    Joinin' and listenin' and talkin' in rhymes
    Stoppin' the feeling to wait for the times.

    Who's saying baby, that don't mean a thing,
    'Cause nowadays Clancy can't even sing.

    And who's all hung-up on that happiness thing?
    Who's trying to tune all the bells that he rings?
    And who's in the corner and down on the floor
    With pencil and paper just counting the score?
    And who's trying to act like he's just in between?
    The line isn't black, if you know that it's green.
    Don't bother looking, you're too blind to see
    Who's coming on like he wanted to be.

    Who's saying baby, that don't mean a thing,
    'Cause nowadays Clancy can't even sing.

    And who's coming home on the old nine-to-five?
    Who's got the feeling that he came alive,
    Though havin' it, sharin' it ain't quite the same
    It ain't no gold nugget, you can't lay a claim
    Who's seeing eyes through the crack in the floor
    There it is baby, don't you worry no more
    Who should be sleepin', but is writing this song
    Wishin' and a-hopin' he weren't so damned wrong.

    Who's saying baby, that don't mean a thing,
    'Cause nowadays Clancy can't even sing.

    The Rolling Stones - Salt of the Earth

    Let’s drink to the hard working people
    Let’s drink to the lowly of birth
    Raise your glass to the good and the evil
    Let’s drink to the salt of the earth

    Say a prayer for the common foot soldier
    Spare a thought for his back breaking work
    Say a prayer for his wife and his children
    Who burn the fires and who still till the earth

    And when I search a faceless crowd
    A swirling mass of gray and
    Black and white
    They don’t look real to me
    In fact, they look so strange

    Raise your glass to the hard working people
    Let’s drink to the uncounted heads
    Let’s think of the wavering millions
    Who need leaders but get gamblers instead

    Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
    His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
    And a parade of the gray suited grafters
    A choice of cancer or polio

    And when I look in the faceless crowd
    A swirling mass of grays and
    Black and white
    They don’t look real to me
    Or don’t they look so strange

    Let’s drink to the hard working people
    Let’s think of the lowly of birth
    Spare a thought for the rag taggy people
    Let’s drink to the salt of the earth

    Let’s drink to the hard working people
    Let’s drink to the salt of the earth
    Let’s drink to the two thousand million
    Let’s think of the humble of birth
