Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will.
I sure could use a vacation from this
Bull# three ring circus sideshow of

Freaks here in this hopeless #ing hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any #ing time. Any #ing day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Fret for your figure and
Fret for your latte and
Fret for your hairpiece and
Fret for your lawsuit and
Fret for your prozac and
Fret for your pilot and
Fret for your contract and
Fret for your car.

It's a Bull# three ring circus sideshow of

Freaks here in this hopeless #ing hole we call LA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away.
Any #ing time. Any #ing day.
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Arizona bay.

Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip#s.

Some say the end is near.
Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this

Silly #, stupid #...

One great big festering neon distraction,
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied.

Learn to swim.

Mom's gonna fix it all soon.
Mom's comin' round to put it back the way it ought to be.

Learn to swim.

# L Ron Hubbard and
# all his clones.
# all those gun-toting
Hip gangster wannabes.

Learn to swim.

# retro anything.
# your tattoos.
# all you junkies and
# your short memory.

Learn to swim.

# smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas.
# these dysfunctional,
Insecure actresses.

Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way.
I wanna watch it all go down.
Mom please flush it all away.
I wanna watch it go right in and down.
I wanna watch it go right in.
Watch you flush it all away.

Time to bring it down again.
Don't just call me pessimist.
Try and read between the lines.

I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend.

I wanna see it all come down.
suck it down.
flush it down.

It has to be UPRISING by MUSE......



Paranoia is in bloom,

The PR transmissions will resume,

They'll try to push drugs that keep us all dumbed down,

And hope that we will never see the truth around

(So come on)

Another promise, another scene,

Another packaged lie to keep us trapped in greed,

And all the green belts wrapped around our minds,

And endless red tape to keep the truth confined

(So come on)



They will not force us,

They will stop degrading us,

They will not control us,

We will be victorious

(So come on)



Interchanging mind control,
[ Uprising lyrics from
www.lyricsyoulove.com... ]
Come let the revolution take it's toll,

If you could flick a switch and open your third eye,

You'd see that

We should never be afraid to die

(So come on)



Rise up and take the power back,

It's time the fat cats had a heart attack,

You know that their time's coming to an end,

We have to unify and watch our flag ascend



They will not force us,

They will stop degrading us,

They will not control us,

We will be victorious

Society - Eddie Vedder

Oh it's a mystery to me
We have a greed with which we have agreed
And you think you have to want more than you need
Until you have it all you won't be free

Society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me

When you want more than you have
You think you need
And when you think more then you want
Your thoughts begin to bleed
I think I need to find a bigger place
'Cause when you have more than you think
You need more space

Society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me
Society, crazy indeed
I hope you're not lonely without me

There's those thinkin' more or less, less is more
But if less is more how you keepin' score?
It means for every point you make your level drops
Kinda like you're startin' from the top
And you can't do that

Society, you're a crazy breed
I hope you're not lonely without me
Society, crazy indeed
I hope you're not lonely without me
Society, have mercy on me
I hope you're not angry if I disagree
Society, crazy indeed
I hope you're not lonely without me

Chariots clashed in the dead of nights
Subversiveness, clouds the clearest of minds
Blink of an eye
We're collateralized
Raised up in arms never knowing why

Bridge:
We give, What we take
When we take nothing
(pull the helmet from your eyes)
We're erased, and betrayed by mistakes

Chorus:
Does your god
Know my god
This is how the world will end

Verse:
And it begs the question
When bullets cloud the sky
Taking away the pain of
Thinking for ourselves
Demons beat down, they beat down our doors
And it begs the question
Could this scene be real
Stealing away our children
Taking away our dreams

Bridge:
We give, What we take
When we take nothing
(pull the helmet from your eyes)
We're erased, and betrayed by mistakes

Chorus:
Does your god
Know my god
This is how the world will end

Circle Jerks: When the ---- hits the fan.

In a sluggish Economy
Inflation, Recession
Hits the land of the free
Standing in unemployment lines
blame the government
for hard times

we just get by
however we can
we all gotta duck when the ---- hits the fan

10 kids in a cadillac
stand in line for welfare checks
let's all leach off the state
gee! the money is really great!

soup lines
free loaves of bread
5lb blocks of cheese
bags of groceries
social security
has run out on you and me
we do whatever we can
gotta duck when the ---- hits the fan

Can't believe nobody posted this one:

To everyone who has replied so far: a sincere THANK YOU! There's so many amazing songs, some I've heard and some not, but I do plan to listen to every one. In particular thanks to the user who recommended 'The Last Man' by Clint Mansell- I used to have The Fountain OS and it was one of the most beautiful and powerful scores I've ever heard, but it never occured to me to possibly use in a video, now it definitely has.......!

So many good classic rock choices as well, rock on!

And thanks to those who posted rap lyrics, I feel like a lot of times rap music is overlooked by 'music snobs' when in reality the lyrics can be very deep and thought-provoking. Another suggestion along those lines would be 'It's Like That' by Run DMC...classic.

GOOLS- AWESOME choice.
Haven't heard that one in a long time.
You could choose many songs and pick out an element that applies to the world today.
It's all in how the music and lyrics apply to your experience.
One of my favs-


To me, the state of the world is each person's individual experience, as it is added to the collective that makes up the world.

And They Don't Really Care About Us, of course (mentioned previously).



Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead
Everybody's gone mad

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
You're rapin' me of my pride
Oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...
Set me free

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can't believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don't wanna see
But if Roosevelt was livin'
He wouldn't let this be, no, no

All I wanna say is that
They don't really care about us
