XXXTRAORDINARY RENDITION

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION EXCEPT ON THE ANOTHERPROTESTSONG.ORG WEBSITE

XXXtraordinary rendition © von robinson 2005

All in the name of love!

XXXtraordinary Rendition

Gal,
Don’t you know I love my gal?
She’s the flag I wave
From high up on the heap of humanity
In the private world war for my family.
Man,
Don’t you know I love my man?
He’s so driven
We just ride in the sidecar and wave and grin
If there’s meaning to be found
It resides in him.
Dad,
(never present in the spectator’s gallery)
Don’t you know I love my dad?
got a bunker with his government salary)
He’s the finest provider materially
Without a doubt I’m going to be Ivy League.
We’ve redefined the terms of engagement, drastically
When I spill blood I sometimes see
Something is shared between the masses and me

Turning names in, valuing numbers
I know the empty shells of shorthand labels
That decorate my day.
It isn’t ugly avarice or greed
Sure we’re all one
But it’s a living taking care of my daily needs

Gang,
(blood is thicker than the mercury waters are)
We’re one flipping lovely gang
(cleaning house with the newly-named Torture Czar)
Eating velvet and we
Write it off as business or charity
If we happen to discuss God or poverty
Beware the mote around our circle of empathy
When I spill blood I sometimes see
Something is shared between the masses and me

Fear’s possessed me, and forced a declaration of truth
That can’t be spoken
But in the vested interest of the very ones I love
Divide, but don’t show your work
And while I’m split in 2
I still know that I’m luckier than you
And you know it too.
All in the name of love. Yep.

Not my darlings, nor my victims,
Just doing my part to save the part,
Preservation’s always in season
If you see love as a non-renewable resource
You’ll understand greed.
When you understand greed
You’ll spend your best days satisfying that need
Oh! The thrill of it all!
Life’s one big ball
I’ll kick you in.

ANOTHER 4 YEARS

Another 4 Years

Another4years

Do you know me I was on your block
In the rubble of an abandoned lot
I was in a suit it was so damm hot
I promised a jellybean in every pot
Well I’m here again in the same old spot
Decay is what I tried to stop
I knock down buildings on every block
Ranch houses on top of lots
It’s time for my nap I just forgot
I’m a White House cowboy
the future shock

Gonna talk about the future shock
Another 4 years we’d rather not

John Fekner & Richard Admiral

BREAKIN’ DOWN MY MIND

02 Breakin Down My Mind

Grew up on promise of American dreams
I’m a perfect example of a broken routine
Well I found shortcuts and secrets and shame
but I can’t beat the game

(And all I know is)
I could never compete with the over ambitious
Couldn’t lie to your face, babe I can’t be that vicious
And I am breakin’ down, watch my country but I don’t understand

They say there’s that nothing you can’t do…

You can’t say that things have never been better
But it ain’t that bad when the worst you can do is you die
You can’t say that things have never been sweeter
There’s a war down here that should die its been killing all my time.
So I’m breakin down my mind.
Yeah I’m breakin down my mind.

What ever happened to the stories we would tell
When a yard was the world and a phone call was a yell
And cigarettes were gold and drinkin’ was for the day

(And all I know is)
I could drive all week on a twenty dollar tank
I had too many lovers, too much money in the bank
I had too much faith in it all or not nearly enough

And they say that you couldn’t be so strong and I said HA! babe I’m long long gone…

You can’t say that things have never been better
But it ain’t that bad when the worst you can do is you die
You can’t say that things have never been sweeter
There’s a war down here that should die its been killing all my time.
So I’m breakin down my mind.
Yeah I’m breakin down my mind.

Can you plug me in?
oh no no
Can you plug me in?
oh no no

You can’t say that things have never been better
but it ain’t that bad when the worst you can do is you die
You can’t say that things have never been sweeter
There’s a war down here that should die its been killing all my time.
So I’m breakin down my mind.
Yeah I’m breakin down my mind.

BLOOD WHEREVER – LEANNE BROAS

Blood Wherever – LeAnne Broas 2004

blood wherever

V1) Waiting out all the sticks they threw at us
In a sense of new resolve of an old ideal
The peaceful seem to always need to shout

Looking past, will we ever learn the way
Can our eyes stay open to acknowledge violence
Here and always was

Lying press that will never spill it all
Keep the masses idle while their children die for
Someone, someone else’s greed

Ch) Blood wherever you go
Follows, flows
Promises that need to be met
Tell us when it carries over

V2) Those who write the book always keeping score
Based on fathers’ sins
Fail to write enough
Keep us hateful and unsure

Even so now here we all are
Someone has to say it
Silence is complacent
They fail to ever write enough

Ch) Blood wherever you go
Follows, flows
Promises that need to be met
Tell us when it carries over

It carries it carries over
It carries, it caries over

I wrote this before the current war, thinking it’d never be relevant so long after it was written….

THE BUSHES – DANIAL NORD

TheBushes_mix

This is a mixdown of a six track audio piece called “The Bushes”. In its original setting (in Long Beach California), a public ‘plant’ of sidewalk bushes enclosed audio speakers broadcasting this remixed rhetoric from the speeches of six Bush family members (1 bush each for Jeb, Laura, W, the Twins, Barbara, and George the father) – which escalated into a rhythmic singsong frenzy of Bushisms. Passers-by danced and squirmed to the cheeky horrors of the First Family of Terror’s ensemble.

GEORGE BUSH IS THE ANTI-CHRIST – DANIEL CIOPER

10-George Bush is the Anti-Christ

Gather around people
of consequence.
I’ll tell you a story
of some despotic kings.
Yes mankind has made
much of these things
over and over again.
But none of them take
the proverbial cake
like George Bush the Anti-Christ.

Nero of Rome the first century
he murdered his mother
a scoundrel indeed.
He burned down Rome
over some six days
then savagely killed many
young Christians for blame.
Most agree that he did it
some still say he didn’t know
like Greorge Bush the Anti-Christ.
He must’ve been to busy
reading “MY Pet Goat”
like George Bush the Anti-Christ.

We turn now to Hitler,
Adolph the fuhrer.
Many many Jews did he murder.
But did you know before that
he pulled this old trick
he burned down the Reichstag
and blamed it on the communists.
Most agree it was a plot
some still say it was not
like George Bush the Anti-Christ.
But those dictator powers
he sure got a lot
like George Bush the Anti-Christ.

George Bush is the Anti-Christ
George Bush is the Anti-Christ
George Bush is the Anti-Christ
George Bush is the Anti-Christ

And I’ll tell you why
I’m not laughing at this guy.
They’re forming your future.

Indefinite detention,
military tribunals,
mother against son?!

Leaving no stone unturned
no bridge unburned
and divided we fall.

All topics exploited
anyone is a pawn,
don’t be a force of evil.

Your either with or against
and if your against you’re a terrorist.
Again George Bush is the Anti-Christ.

Now we know what they’ve done
And they’re just having fun.
Do you think they’ll get tried?

And oh just you wait
it aint over in 08
Because George Bush is the Anti-Christ.

LOVE IS REVOLUTION – DANIEL CIOPER

Loveisrevolution

Usurpation Demonstration
half the nation ill-integrated
and inflation a con’s creation
making fares for nonsense-craving
light-less foes with
rightful roads and
revolution a real solution.

Nothing is no consolation
no real attraction
could be distraction.
Comfortable’s a front
for full of shit
the road of yellow-brick
is slathered sludge some feel the nudge one out of ten
I’ll say it again.

Criminally subliminal
you build a soul
to break the mold
a hand-over’s a hand to hold
speaking with a
cross-hair pen.
Strangers spy, salvation stalls
a miracle the sky don’t fall.

Lackadaisical smacks of slavery
sends you off
to suck your cells.
The brightness blinds
you pay your mind
to freeway stops
that toll the road.
They stick inside
your private ride
co-operation is desperation.

Warrior Utopians
speaking with a cross-hair pen.
Sword of truth slicing skin.
Simple thoughts for simple men.

You sacrifice you roll the dice
the worlds still here
yea, thinking twice
but double-speak a tool
for weak and mindful fools
with money-seeking
masters of you day and plan
and once you go
you’re back again.

Despise the lies and
stay outside.
Strong and true you’ll
never hide.
Wanting kills and wanting shrugs the shoulders of a movements men.
Zeitgeist chimes
a note sublime
if not opposition,
when is the time?

Worldly is as worldly does
fate waits then it’s too late.
Lynchings mob on Bush’s nod
whilst moderates mediate
the false prophet
a false debate
you wait for what,
a charity plate?!

Warrior Utopians
speaking with a cross-hair pen.
Sword of truth slicing skin.
Simple thoughts for simple men.
Sends you off to paradise
a sword in hand a man up high.
Chime the bell now tell it
love is revolution.

WE ARE THE ONES (WE’VE BEEN WAITING FOR) – THE LOVERS

Wearetheones(lovers)

There isn’t a song
that hasn’t been sung.
There are no new words
in any old tongue
that haven’t been uttered, save the one
of world unity
from sea to shining sea.
There isn’t a world
in ever-loving space
that isn’t on edge
that doesn’t a-wait
for that shiny blue jewel
in the white milky way
to rise from the dust
and finally say:

We are the ones,
we are the ones,
we are the ones
we’ve been waiting for. (repeat)

Don’t look in back, no,
stand your ground.
The green light has
surely already been found.
Ain’t no one deprived,
so don’t be depraved.
The time to arrive
was yesterday
and it’s really very true,
hear me when I say
for the glory evolution
it’s never too late,
though the story is old
it’s relevant see
that the answer to deaths riddle is to be.

(Chorus)

And brother the future
is what you make of the past.
There is no other time
sister to shine shine shine.
Ooh like the rising moon,
or a flower that blooms.
We’re hatching an egg
let’s make it today.
(Chorus)

GOOD SHEPERD – DANIEL CIOPER

Goodshepherd

There’s no peace in war
no truth in lies.
And oh the good shepherd
don’t wear a disguise.
There’s no freedom in arms
no good comes from evil.
But that’s no what they’ll
have you think, though.

The value of you is
in the deeds you do.
Your worth should be
more than your money.
Change don’t come
from nothing,
and good don’t from dumbing.
So why are there things
they can’t tell us?

The kingdom of heaven
is a woman, her name,
Mother Earth,
quenching in full
a man’s ravenous thirst.
The heavens will settle
and she’ll help us feel good.
If and when
we’re good to her.

There’s no happy little slaves
we’re all created equal.
So get off your high horse
‘fore it topples.
I know it’s not me
I’d always share my blessings
and two-fold when
love is hard to find.

Let it out, let it out.
The people who care, oh
they should beware.
And, oh, they don’t see
they only worry.
You are as you as can be.

A song always lifts
no greed ever gives.
So to what are we giving
them power.
There’s no love in fear,
no right in might.
So you know
the good shepherd don’t
wear a disguise.
