about

STARDUST TO DARWINSTUFF

♬ Evolve Viva La Résistance
Evolve Viva La Revolution ♬

It has been 13.8 billion years since the dawn of our observable universe; 3.7 billion years since the first life on earth burst into fruition; and millions of years in the evolutionary making for our human consciousness to fathom out that we are the stewards of the only known home of life in said universe. And yet our industrial machinery and bombs can tear up and ecosystem and visit extinction upon fellow creatures in a matter of minutes and hours. It has never been more apparent that our human condition requires something extraordinary of us if we are to survive as a species, when all the destructive powers in the world have been, by hook and by crook, invested in the power mongers that currently inhabit The US White House and the like.

In the coming months we the peoples of the planet will need to support a series of general strikes in support of the resistance of those workers who will be commissioned to make President Trump’s executive orders a daily reality. And as internationalists connected by our fragile atmosphere, in the quest for a fairer, more sustainable existence, we will need to stand with those peoples who resist and refuse to be bowed by the predator capitalismos of US planetary hegemony.

Art and science, those fraternal twin explorers of the human condition, are key tools in our collective workbox. For all our sakes, in the new world we are now attempting to make, future governments must abide by the science which is our best means of gauging the health and sustainability of our shared planet. And, our birthright of imagination and creativity will be vital in forging the art, which rallies us to the defense of our planet from those sociopaths who will continue to destroy it, if we let them.

As the concentrations of CO2 in our atmosphere have sky rocketed these past forty years under the shortsighted controls of the neo-liberal economic order, both science and human creativity tell us that capitalismos’ live experiment with ‘endless economic growth’ using us as guinea pigs, and the planet as a petri dish, has been a catastrophic failure, across all measures of basic human decency and planetary sustainability.

During this same time period a new science has emerged to explore the ultimate reasons as to why we humans came to exist in the first place and not least why we ever came to make art. This latter field of bio-poetics investigating why we create narratives, make paintings, and write songs etc. in search of artistic truth, strongly suggests that art evolved as a universal human behavior because it is adaptive, because it helped us survive as a species. And, in this humble stab at a consilience between art and science, in the themes on this record, I truly feel part of an axis of dissent to the prevailing order which ceaselessly extinguishes life for the sake of a cheap bottom dollar. As H.G Wells said: “Human history more and more becomes a race between education and catastrophe.”

Motivated by our—as far as we know—unique human capacity to wonder, in these times it remains vital that we try and shed light on the human condition and the meaning of life, in our long, and hopefully ongoing, journey from Stardust to Darwinstuff.

Track Name: Stardust to Darwinstuff
TAKE IN THE COUNTRY, INHALE THE GALAXY
ON A CLEAR WARM MELLOW AUGUST NIGHT
BRING A BLANKET, HOLD SOMEONE’S HAND
AND LET THE METEOR SHOWER WASH OUR SINS AWAY

MOUNTAINS, RIVERS, SHRUB STEPPE, THE STARS UP ABOVE
A KISS AT MIDNIGHT, THE SALTY TASTE OF LOVE
IS ALL THE SPIRTUALITY WE COULD EVER NEED
LET THE METEOR SHOWER WASH OUR SINS AWAY

SO AMAZING, ATOMS TO ATOMS
STARDUST TO DARWINSTUFF TO US
SO PRETTY BABY, EVERYTHING WE SEE
THIS UNIVERSE WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME

THE RAW NAKED WONDER, THE BEAUTY OF A MYSTERY
UNDRESSING THE MOON, REVEALING THE SUN
FOR EVERY CLUE WE PIECE TOGETHER, THERE’S A MILLION MORE TO BE DISCOVERED
BY OVA AND SPERMOZOA, YET TO GET IT ON

chorus

WISH UPON AN EXPLODING STAR, IN THE FAR ORION NEBULA
ALL AROUND US, ALL WITHIN US, ALL THAT GLITTERS, STARDUST IN US
FLYING THROUGH SPACE ON STARSHIP EARTH AT 67 000 MILES AN HOUR
ALL AROUND US, ALL WITHIN US, ALL THAT GLITTERS

SO AMAZING, ATOMS TO ATOMS
STARDUST TO DARWINSTUFF TO US

SO PRETTY BABY, THERE’S STARLIGHT IN YOUR EYES
STARDUST IN YOUR HAIR AND IN YOUR SMILE
SO PRETTY BABY, LINGER A WHILE
KISS ME IN THE FRENCH STYLE

SO PRETTY BABY, EVERYTHING WE SEE
THIS UNIVERSE WAS MADE FOR YOU AND ME
FOR YOU AND ME
COME ON BABY YOU AND ME
Track Name: So Hot It Hurts
SCHOOL IS OUT AND WE’RE GOING SWIMMING
BUT I CAN’T STOP MY BRAIN FROM THINKING
SCIENCE MOVES IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
ON THESE LONG HOT SUMMER DAYS
I GOT A PULSE DOPPLER RADAR FEELING
AN INTERESTING BAROMETER READING
A BUTTERFLY FLAPS IT WINGS
METAMORPHOSING EVERYTHING

THE SUMMER JUST GOT HOTTER
AS YOU CROSSED MY LINE OF VISION
THE SUMMER JUST GOT HOTTER
WHEN YOU LOOK IN MY DIRECTION

DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE BLUY SKY
THERE’S ALCHEMY IN THE TROPOSPHERE
COUNTERINTUITIVELY SPEAKING
ELECTRICITY AND MOISTURE MINGLING
THE ATOMOSPHERES ARE JITTERBUG JUMPING
THE HUMIDITY IS HUMMING
THE JUICES ARE SIMMERING
THERES A STORM WITH YOUR NAME ON IT MOVING IN

SO HOT IT HURTS
SO GOOD IT BURNS
SO WET ITS BLUE
SO BAD IT’S TRUE
SO SOMETHING GOING ON?
HOW CAN IT BE WRONG?
WHEN MY HEART IS SINGING THIS SONG?

FIXING ME WITH YOUR CUMULONIMBUS EYES
YOUR THUNDER MEOW
YOU LIGHTNING SMILE …
SOMETHING SO HORNY HORMONAL
YOUR PHENEOMENA’S PHENOMENAL
SOMETHING SO PHEROMONAL
SO GORGEOLICIOUSLY ANIMAL


OH OW OH OH OH OW
OH WOW OH OH OH OW
OH ME OW OH OH OW
OH OW OW OW SO HOT IT HURTS

THE SUMMER JUST GOT BETTER
SINCE YOU GRABBED HOLD OF MY ATTENTION
AND THIS SUMMER’S GONNA GET WETTER
WHEN YOUR LIGHTNING STRIKES

SO HOT IT HURTS …
Track Name: Tricky Trickledown
Love and peace and God bless America
Love and peace and God bless America
Smart and free and secure and healthier
Smart economics making us all wealthier
Trickle trickledown
Tricky trickledown
Smart Love ™ raining down on all of us.
Track Name: Karma Won't Save Us (from Rex Tillerson)
TAKE A ROCK IN YOUR HAND
AND LET IT FALL WHEREVER YOU MAY BE
TESTABLE, REPEATABLE, DEMONSTRABLE EVIDENCE
OF OUR SITUATION AND ITS GRAVITY

BY APPLICATION OF THIS SCIENTIFIC METHOD
BY TAKING CAREFUL MEASURMENTS WE FIND
THAT THE ENDURING FALSE POSITIVE OF ENDLESS ECONOMIC GROWTH
IS A LUXURY OUR SPECIES CAN’T AFFORD

SO I’M SORRY BUT KARMA WON’T SAVE US
MEASURED BY EVERY SOUL THAT EVER DIED
SO THE RICH COULD GET AWAY WITH GETTING RICHER EVERY DAY
WITH NO PALPABLE COROLLARY CONSEQUENCE

THE C.E.O. OF EXXON MOBIL
MAKES IN EXCESS OF FORTY MILLION A YEAR
BEING GENEROUS LET’S SAY HE WORKS SIXTY HOURS A WEEK, HE MAKES MINIMUM WAGE,
IN THE TIME IT TAKES TO SAY “MINIMUM WAGE”

SO I’M SORRY BUT KARMA WON’T SAVE US
MEASURED BY EVERY SOUL THAT HAS TO DIE
SO THE RICH CAN GET AWAY WITH GETTING RICHER EVERY DAY
WITH NIL TANGIBLE COST TO THE RULING CLASS

KILLING US SOFTLY WITH ORTHODOXY
DOES IT MAKE ME ANGRY? IT MAKES ME APOPLECTIC
THAT WE’D ENABLE THE ONE PER CENT TO DRIVE THE WHOLE PICNIC OVER THE CLIFF
WITHOUT APPLYING THE SCIENCE OF BEING SCIENTIFIC

SO I’M SORRY BUT KARMA WON’T SAVE US
MEASURED BY EVERY LIVING THING THAT HAS TO DIE
SO THE RICH CAN KEEP ON, GETTING ON, GETTING RICHER EVERY DAY
TILL IT ALL FALLS APART AND WORMS INHERIT THE EARTH

AS THE PEER REVIEWED EVIDENCE CLEARLY SHOWS
PREDATOR CAPITAL IS A PSYCHOSIS BEYOND HOPE
AN ABERRATION, A ROGUE MEME, A FAILED EXPERIMENT
AND AN INSULT TO OUR MILLIONS OF YEARS OLD EVOLVED INTELLIGENCE
Track Name: East 20
GOTTA GET ME OUT OF THE CITY
SEATTLE BURNING A HOLE IN ME
I-5 IS A REAL LIVE WIRE
BUT I HAD MY FILL OF ELECTRICTY

LEFT THE MAYHEM BY ARLINGTON
FOR THE RELATIVE CALM OF THE RESERVATION
THE ENDLESS TREES BEYOND DARRINGTON
AND THE MAJESTY OF THE CASCADE MOUNTAINS

OH SO GONE, OH SO WRONG
IN THE PATH OF PANDEMONIUM
THE RAIN OF RAINS, RAINING COMES
MELTS A MOUNTAIN, OSO STRONG

A KISS OF FRESH AIR
Q.E.D. DEMONSTRABLY ETHEREAL
THE PULL OF THE MOUNTAINS
GRAVITATIONALLY IRRESISTABLE

CENTRE-ORIENTING ME SOME

TOOK A RIGHT FORK, OUTTA ROCKPORT
HEADING EAST ON EAST 20
LOOKING FOR SOMEONE I THINK
I THOUGHT I ONCE KNEW

ITS A LONG SWEET BEAUTIFUL ROAD
SOOTHING ME AND MY WEARY MIND
COMING UP TO THE SNOW LINE
IF I CAN GET MY ASS OVER WASHINTON PASS

chorus

FIND MYSELF IN COWBOY TOWN
LIKE I GONE BACK IN TIME
LOST MY WAY OR I GONE TOO FAR
BUT OWEN WISTER IS DRIVING A CAR

OUTTA WINTHROP WA
BETWEEN POORMAN CREEK AND MAZAMA
I MIGHT EVEN FIND MYSELF
DOWN AT THE MYSTERY MOTEL
WELL, WELL, LOOK WHO’S CHECKED IN AT THE MYSTERY MOTEL
Track Name: Water off a Baldy
Caught on the hop, between bus stops
Two go by at once
Caught between a rock and Newton's Laws
When it rains, it really pours
I had to be some place
I guess it was never meant to be
No use pulling out my hair
Cos everywhere i go it rains on me
But its water off a bald man's head
I said
Everywhere I go it rains on me
but it's water, just a little water off a baldy's head
Track Name: Worse in the Morning
WHERE ON EARTH DID YOU COME FROM?
I WASN'T LOOKING, YOU SNUCK UP ON ME

HOW ON EARTH, DID THIS HAPPEN?
THIS CONNECTION, WILL BE THE DEATH OF ME

AND EVERYTHING LOOKS WORSE IN THE MORNING
READING BETWEEN THE LINES ON YOUR PRETTY FACE
WE MADE OUR BED, NOW IT'S TIME TO GO
TROUBLE JUST GOT DEEPER, THAN IT WAS A FEW HOURS AGO

FLYING HIGH, LIKE AN EAGLE
LOOKING DOWN ON THE MOUNTAIN TOP

OVER RIVER VALLEYS, BLUE AND GREEN
INTO THE SUNSET, EXPLODING INTO PINK

chorus

AM I IN YOUR DREAMS? ARE YOU IN MINE?
NO TIME FOR LOVE. MORNING BREAKING DOWN THE DOOR
PLANETS COLLIDE, GALAXIES DISINTEGRATE
COLLAPSING IN, ON EACH OTHER
WHERE DOES ONE BEGIN, AND WHERE WILL THIS END?

IF I’D SAID, ABANDON ALL HOPE
YE WHO ENTER HERE, WOULD IT HAVE MADE A DIFFERENCE

CAUTION GOT THE LAST TRAIN, OUTTA HERE
WORDS CAN’T HELP US NOW, WE’RE IN WAY TOO DEEP

chorus

NOW GO
Track Name: Supervolcano
SO BEAUTIFUL, SO IT HURTS
SO IMPERFECTLY PERFECT, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

SO DAMAGED, SO DEEP INSIDE
OOOO BUT WHEN YOU SMILE, LOVE FINDING ITS’ WAY

SO I KNOW, DON’T ASK ME HOW, BUT I KNOW
LOVE FINDING ITS’ WAY, AND THEN YOU PUSHED ME AWAY

I CAN’T FIX YOU BABY, EVEN IF I WANTED TO (WHICH I DON’T)
SO I WILL HOLD YOUR HAND, AND BE YOUR MAN

BE MY BABY, MY LANDMINE
MY SUICIDE BOMBSHELL, JUST DON’T PUSH ME AWAY

COME HERE, LET IT ALL OUT
LET ME HOLD YOU, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

STRANGE AND UNUSUAL, AS YOU CHANGE, MORE BEAUTIFUL
SO DIFFERENT, BUT SO YOU, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE

BE MY BABY, MY LANDMINE
MY SUICIDE BOMBSHELL, JUST DON’T PUSH ME AWAY

BE MY BABY, MY SUPERVOLCANO
MY INCOMING METEORITE, BABY IT’S ALRIGHT
Track Name: Trip Trapping
I ONCE WAS A FICTIVE SCIENTIST
TILL I FELL OFF THE WAGON AND INTO THE DITCH
WHO’D HAVE THOUHGT IT? THIS METAMORPHOSIS
I’M THE KEEPER OF THE BRIDGE

I COME FROM OUT UNDER, ‘SEE THE THAT LOOK OF HORROR?
BEFORE I GRANT THEM THEIR WISH,
SO DON’T LINGER, DON’T LOITER, DON’T TALK TO STRANGERS
IF YOU WANT TO BE CROSSING MY BRIDGE

BUT ONCE UPON A TUNE IN ONE OF NEPTUNES’S BLUE MOONS
COMES A GAWKER GIVING ME ATTITUDE
PONTIFICATING, DOWNRIGHT IMPLOLITE
I JUST THROW ‘EM OVER THE SIDE

QUITE RIGHT KIND SIR, SO I PRAY, I WONDER
AND I KNOW IT’S A SMIDGEN IRREGULAR
I MEAN IF I MAY, IF I MIGHT CROSS THAT WAY
I’LL BE GONE BEFORE YOU CAN SAY …

WHO GOES THERE TRIP TRAPPING?
TRIP TRAPPING ACROSS THE BRIDGE
LET’S BE CLEAR THERE’S NO DANCING HERE
NE TRIP TRAPPING, TRAP TRIPPING PAS

DEFYING PHYSICS, SHE LEAVES ME GOBSMACKED
YOU JUST COME FROM THERE, THERE’S NO GOING BACK
IT WAS, AND IT IS, AND IT ALWAYS WILL BE
A ONE WAY TICKET FROM ME

BUT I DON’T COME FROM THERE, THERE’S WHERE I WANT TO GET
DIDN’T YOU GET THE MEMO, OR DID YOU FORGET?
SO NICE CHATTING, NOW I REALLY MUST GO
I HAVE A DATE WITH THE EARTH BELOW


LOOK I SUPPOSE, IF YOU REALLY MUST KNOW
I WAS CAST OUT OF HEAVEN … SO IT GOES
STRIPPED OF MY WINGS FOR CRIMES OF THE MIND
BY MY OWN ANGEL KIND

WELL THE MORE SHE CONFIDED THE STRANGER IT SEEMED
LIKE AN EARWORM SHE BURROWED INSIDE OF MY DREAMS
SOMEHOW SHE GOT ME ALL TURNED AROUND
BAMBOOZLED AND SOMEWHAT UNBOUND



COME WITH ME THEN, YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO?
TAKE A RISK, THROW CAUTION TO THE BRIDGE
WHAT I WOULDN’T GIVE FOR A NICE COMFY BED
AND SOMEONE TO SHARE IT WITH

NOT ONE TO DISSAPOINT, AFTER ALL I’M ONLY HUMAN
WELL SORT OF, NOT REALLY BUT THAT’S ANOTHER STORY
I WASN’T EVEN LOOKING BUT I GOT THIS FEELING
FALLING FOR THE FALLENING

HERE WE GO TRIP TRAPPING
TRIP TRAPPING ACROSS THE BRIDGE
THERE’S NO DANCING HERE, UNTIL WE APPEARED
TRIP TRAPPING ACROSS THE BRIDGE
Track Name: Autonomic Stress
ANXIETY,
GOT IT’S CLAWS IN ME
AND THIS IS MORE THAN A FLESH WOUND
IT CUTS RIGHT TO THE BONE
A CLAUSTROPHOBIC KNOT
CHURNING IN MY GUT
EVERYTHING I KNOW
TURNING INSIDE UP

GET READY TO GO,
GET READY TO GO
AT A HAIR’S BREADTH OF A MOMENT’S NOTICE
GET READY TO GO


NERVOUS SYSTEM BEEP-BEEP BEEPING
HEARTBEAT, BEAT-BEAT BEATING
NEURONS FIRING SEQUENTIALLY
MY BRAIN LIGHTING UP LIKE A CHRISTMAS TREE
MILLIONS OF YEARS OF EVOLUTION
BOILED RIGHT DOWN INTO THIS MOMENT
FIGHT OR FLIGHT SIMULATOR
SWITCHING OVER TO ANIMAL RADAR


GET READY TO GO
GET READY TO GO
AT A HAIR’S BREADTH OF A MOMENT’S NOTICE
GET READY TO GO

THE POWER’S OUT AND THE PHONES ARE DOWN
THE FIRE GUYS WORKING DOUBLE OVERTIME
IT’S COMING DOWN FAST AND IT’S COMING DOWN QUICK
IT’S COMING DOWN FAST AND IT’S COMING TO THIS
IF IT’S NOT IN THE TRUCK, IT’S NOT COMING
IF YOU’RE NOT IN THE TRUCK, START RUNNING
IF IT’S NOT IN THE TRUCK, IT’S NOT COMING
IF YOU’RE NOT IN THE TRUCK, START RUNNING

AUTONOMIC STRESS RESPONSE, ALL SYSTEMS GO
ONLY GONNA TELL YOU ONCE, GOTTA GO-GO-GO
AN AUTONOMIC STRESS RESPONSE, ALL SYSTEMS GO
KICK OUT THE JAMS AND THE BANJO, GOTTA GO-GO-GO

GO HOMO LUDENS GO
GO HOMO THESPIANS GO
GO HOMO FABULISTS GO
Track Name: Revolution 9.01
HOW DID IT COME TO THIS? WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
WHEN THE OLIGARCH KNOWS BETTER THAN ALL THE WORLD’S SCIENTISTS
AS IF PHENOMENA WILL BOW DOWN TO LOGGORRHEA
AS IF THE REST OF US WILL TAKE THIS LYING DOWN

SO I PROPOSE A TOAST TO CHARLES DARWIN,
ELLEN DISSANAYAKE, BRIAN BOYD, AND E.O. WILSON et al
FOR GIVING US THE TOOLS TO COMPREHEND,
WHERE WE CAME FROM, HOW WE GOT HERE AND WHERE WE’RE BOUND

I CURSE THE RETURN OF THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN
WITH EVERY ADAPTIVE FIBRE IN MY BREATHING BODY
NOW TO SEARCH ALL OF GENE-CULTURE CO-EVOLUTION
FOR THE NEURONS THAT UNLOCK OUR REVOLUTION

TO H.G. WELLS, WHO ONCE WROTE
WHEN THE LIGHTS WERE GOING OUT ALL OVER EUROPE
THAT HUMAN HISTORY IS A RACE BETWEEN EDUCATION
AND THE CATASTROPHE THAT EMBRACES US NOW

I CURSE THE RETURN OF THE LAUGHING POLICEMAN
WITH EVERY ADAPTIVE FIBRE IN MY BREATHING BODY
NOW TO MUSTER EVERY OUNCE OF HUMAN EMPATHY
TO OVERTHROW THIS DEMAGOGUERY

THE WORLD IS UPSIDE DOWN AND COMING UNGLUED
‘PRESIDENT COULDN’T EVEN GET A JOB IN A PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL
UPDATING SHELLEY, ‘WE ARE MANY … THEY ARE FEW’
AND WE WILL DO WHATEVER WE HAVE TO DO

CONNECTED AS WE ARE BY THE ATMOSPHERE
OUR ANIMAL-CHEMICAL-WARNING RINGS AROUND THE ECOSPHERE
THIS IS OUR WAKE UP CALL, THIS IS GAME ON
EVOLVE VIVA LA RÉSISTANCE

SHAKE, RATTLE AND ROLL AND BREAK OUR BONDS
AND IN SO DOING TAKING DOWN, THE CARBON ROBBER BARONS
BECAUSE 3.7 BILLION … PLUS YEARS OF LIFE ON EARTH
IS SOMETHING WORTH FIGHTING FOR
EVOLVE VIVA LA RÉSISTANCE,
EVOLVE VIVA LA REVOLUTION
Track Name: Dark Matter
AS RANDOM AS THE ATOMS CAST, FROM THE BELLY OF AN EXPLODING STAR
COMINGLING INTO A SOLAR SYSTEM WITH A GOLDILOCKS PLANET JUST LIKE OURS
SO A METEOR COULD WIPE OUT THE DINOSAURS
AND ADVANCE THE INFINTESIMALLY SMALL CHANCE THAT YOU AND I WOULD EVER BE BORN

FROM ALL THE SPERM AND EGGS, THAT EVER EXISTED, SINCE MAMMALS FIRST WALKED THE EARTH
PERCHANCE TO EVOLVE SO THAT WE MIGHT BREATHE THIS VERY SAME AIR
AND FIND EACH OTHER IN ORBIT, WHERE WE COULD FALL MADLY IN LOVE …
ONLY TO FALL OUT OF LOVE … IT DOESN’T COMPUTE … AND IT NEVER WILL

BLUE, BLUE, MY BRAIN LIGHTS UP BLUE
TRIGGERED BY A MEMORY OF YOU
IN SPACE YOU CANT SEE IT, YOU CAN’T HEAR IT … BUT IT’S BLUE
DARKER THAN THE DARKEST … DARK MATTER BLUE

OUR HOMO SAPIENS’ BRAIN, CRAVING PATTERN, MAKING MEANING
ONLY ABLE TO FUNCTION, WHEREIN EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON
GIVING LIE TO THIS FEELING THAT LOVE EXISTS OUTSIDE THE MOMENT
LEADING ON, LEAD ME ON … TO THE NEXT MOMENT

chorus

THIS IS LOVE FORGED FROM A BILLION JUPITERS
CUPID’S ARROW, BOURNE BY NEURO-TRANSMITTERS
A SPIRALLING CHAIN OF MOLECULES, THE DOUBLE HELIX OF EMOTIONS
UNLEASHING UNKNOWN SIDE EFFECTS, ON THE UNSUSPECTING

BLUE, BLUE, MY BRAIN LIGHTS UP BLUE
TRIGGERED BY A MEMORY OF YOU
IN SPACE YOU CANT SEE IT, YOU CAN’T HEAR IT … BUT IT’S BLUE
DARKER THAN THE DARKEST, DARK MATTER … BLUE
ALL THAT REMAINS OF ME AND YOU
Track Name: To Be or Not To Be?
TO BE OR NOT TO BE? TO BE OR NOT TO BE?

WHETHER TIS NOBLER IN THE MIND TO SUFFER
THE SLINGS AND ARROWS AND REAPER DRONES
OF THOSE WHO MAKE OUTRAGEOUS FORTUNES
FROM THE SUCIDE BOMB OF OUR FOSSIL FUEL

TO BE OR NOT TO BE, TO BE OR NOT TO BE

NOWHERE TO RUN,
NOWHERE TO HIDE
WHEN THE WHOLE PLANET IS A SACRIFICE ZONE
FOR THE ONE PER CENT IN THEIR GREEN ZONES

TO BE OR NOT TO BE, TO BE OR NOT TO BE


TO BE OR NOT TO BE
TO BE ENGAGED IN THIS EXISTENTIAL STRUGGLE?
TO BE OR NOT TO BE
BETWEEN LIFE ON EARTH AND AN ECONOMIC MODEL
OR TO TAKE ARMS?
AGAINST A RISING SEA OF TROUBLES

AND BY OPPOSING THEM FROM THE GROUND UP
END THEM … END THEM

DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE … DIE CAPITALISMOS DIE
DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE DIE … DIE CAPITALISMOS DIE


WE’LL TAKE OUR POWER FROM THE WIND AND SUN
AND LEAVE THE OIL IN THE GROUND
DEMAND CLEAN AIR AND FRESH CLEAN WATER
AND LEAVE THE OIL IN THE GROUND

STANDING AGINST ALL THE PRESIDENT’S MEN …
ALL ALONG THE BARRICADES
SINGING, PIPELINES NO PASARAN
ALL ALONG THE BARRICADES
THE EMPIRE OF FOSSIL FUEL, HAS HAD IT AFR TOO GOOD,
FOR FAR TOO LONG
BUT ALL THINGS DECEASE, ALL THING DECAY
STARING TODAY THA LACK OF SEPARATION BETWEEN STATE AND CORPORATION
IS WAY PAST ITS SELL-BY DATE
SO DIE NEO-LIBERALISM. DE-REGULATORY RAPISM DIE

DIE CAPITALISMOS DIE …AND LEAVE THE OIL IN THE GROUND
DIE CAPITALISMOS DIE … AND LEAVE THE COAL IN THE GROUND
DIE CAPITALISMOS DIE … AND LEAVE THE GAS IN THE GROUND
DIE CAPITALISMOS DIE … AND LEAVE THE ARCTIC SOUND …

DIE CAPITALISMOS DIE … AND IN DEATH FERTILIZE
POWER THAT IS LOCAL COMMUNITY-SIZED
AND A HUMAN CONDITION THAT CAN EMPATHSIZE
WITH SUSTAINABILITY
AND AN END TO THIS INSANITY
AND AN ANSWER TO THE QUESTION

TO BE … IT’S GOTTA BE TO BE

COME ON COME ON, COME ON COME ON,
YOU KNOW WE NEED A REVOLUTION
COME ON COME ON, COME ON COME ON,
WE GONNA BE A PART OF THE SOULTION

TO BE … IT’S GOTTA BE TO BE!
Track Name: Brain Plasticity
KNOWING THAT I’M TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH YOU
AND BEING ABANDONED BY YOU
THE NEURONS THAT FIRED TOGETHER, WIRED TOGETHER, WHEN WE WERE TOGETHER
AND CANNOT SIMPLY BE UNDONE BY AN ULTIMATUM

LIKE TRYING TO MAKE MYSELF FORGET HOW TO RIDE A BIKE
OR TRYING TO STOP MY FINGERS PLAYING THIS G CHORD

I DIVED WAY TOO DEEP, HOW COULD I NOT?
AS A HOMO SAPIENS MALE STARING DOWN THE UNIVERSE
LEFT TO WRESTLE WITH THE WONDER OF MY BRAIN’S PLASTICITY
TRYING TO FORCE MYSELF NOT TO BE IN LOVE WITH YOU

LIKE TRYING TO MAKE MYSELF FORGET HOW TO RIDE A BIKE
OR TRYING TO STOP MY FINGERS PLAYING THIS G CHORD

WHEN ALL I WANNA DO, IS HOLD YOU WHEN YOU’RE LONELY
WHEN ALL I WANNA DO, IS FEED YOU WHEN YOU’RE HUNGRY
AND ALL I WANNA DO, IS FUCK YOU WHEN YOU’RE HORNY
AND ALL I REALLY WANTED WAS TO HAVE YOU IN MY LIFE SOME
