These are the lessons that we learn every day
Life is an uphill battle that we have to chase
The will to survive, to persevere
They say the promised land is drawing near

The petty tasks of daily being
The American Dream isn't what we hoped for, is it worth the fight?
How do I carry on when no love is lost?
There is no future, we're out of time

I want the life I was promised, I want a place to call my own
There is so much to work with, but it seems so far away

The Andrea Doria - "Planet Problems (Land Distress)"

Don't wanna be an American idiot!
Don't want a nation under the new mania
And can you hear the sound of hysteria?
The subliminal mind f#%% America!

Welcome to a new kind of tension,
All across the alien-nation,
Where everything isn't meant to be okay!
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
For that's enough to argue.

Well maybe I'm the f+!*&* America.
I'm not a part of a redneck agenda.
Now everybody do the propaganda!
And sing along to the age of paranoia!

Welcome to a new kind of tension,
All across the alien-nation,
Where everything isn't meant to be okay!
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
For that's enough to argue.

Don't want to be an American idiot!
One nation controlled by the media.
Information Age of hysteria.
It's calling out to idiot America.

Welcome to a new kind of tension,
All across the alien-nation,
Where everything isn't meant to be okay!
Television dreams of tomorrow.
We're not the ones who're meant to follow.
For that's enough to argue.


An outlandish knight from the Northlands came
He came a-courting me
He rode until he came to my father's own door
And said he would marry me
And said he would marry me

"Take up, take up, your father's gold
Take up your mother's fee
And the two best horses in your father's hall
Where they stand thirty and three
Where they stand thirty and three"

So she rode off on the milk white steed
He on the dappled grey
And they rode 'til they came unto the lake side
Three hours before it was day
Three hours before it way day

"Take off, take off, your gown so fine
Take off your gown for me
For six pretty maids have I drowned here
And the seventh you shall be
And the seventh you shall be"

"But first cut down those nettles so sharp
That grow so close to the brim
For fear they should catch my tresses of gold
And tear my milk white skin
And tear my milk white skin"

So he's took his sword and he's cut those nettles
That grew so close to the brim
And as he turned his back to her
She's gone and she's pushed him in
She's gone and she's pushed him in

"Stand off, stand off, you knavish knight
Stand off and hearken to me
Six pretty maids have you drowned here
But the seventh has drowned thee
But the seventh has drowned thee"

You'll have to call again, I'm just leaving.
I'm ah, not dressed properly.

My love is a fever,
Longing still for that which longer nurseth the disease.
Tell me more.
You'll have to call again.

In faith, I do not love thee, with mine eyes.
They thee, a thousand errors see.
But 'tis my heart, that loves, what they despise.
Whom you despise.

If you, are pleased to go,
Shall I compare thee, to a summer's day?
Tell me more.
You'll have to call again.

Listen girl to what I say
about the man from Gallifrey
He can show you the planets
he can show you the stars
he can love you more because
he's got two hearts

Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, whatcha gonna do
Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, whatcha gonna do

From the nearest world to
the farthest, he'll take you
there in his TARDIS
who will you find, are you
a risk-taker, will it be David
Tennant or Colin Baker

Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, whatcha gonna do
Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, whatcha gonna do

As you travel through the void
your adventures will be great
but as you experience the freedom
of time, there's no escaping your
ultimate fate

For though you fly from the
galaxies at supersonic speeds
you lie and wait to hear the word
to hear the word, to hear the word
Exterminate

Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, Doctor Who, who, who
Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, Doctor Who, who, who
Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, Doctor Who, who, who
Doctor Who, Doctor Who,
Doctor Who, Doctor Who, who, who

Tuli kokko, iliman lintu,
Havukka, tuolt' tuulten päältä,
Litti lintu, syöksy sääksi,
Sinitaivon selänteiltä.

Siivet sil' ol' suuremmoiset,
Hövhenkarvat hurjanlaiset,
Nokkanuoli kovin kopra,
Silmäpari salamoiva.

Kuni kokonkaunis kaatos,
Kuni havukan luova lento,
Niin on mieli miunki ylväs,
Niin on aatos miunki vappaa.

Toinen siipi maata viisti,
Toinen taivon kantta raapi,
Nokka koukki kuusiloit,
Silmät näki tähtein' päähän.

Kuli halki kolmen kosken,
Kolmen kosken, neljän virran,
Kaunoisehen metsänmaahan,
Suloisehen Suomenmaahan.

Kuni kokon kaunis kaarros,
Kuni havukan luova lento,
Niin on mieli miunki ylväs,
Niin on aatos miunki vappaa.

In ancient times...
Hundreds of years before the dawn of history
Lived a strange race of people... the Druids

No one knows who they were or what they were doing
But their legacy remains
Hewn into the living rock... Of Stonehenge

Stonehenge! Where the demons dwell
Where the banshees live and they do live well
Stonehenge! Where a man's a man
And the children dance to the Pipes of Pan

Hey!

Stonehenge! 'Tis a magic place
Where the moon doth rise with a dragon's face
Stonehenge! Where the virgins lie
And the prayers of devils fill the midnight sky

And you my love, won't you take my hand?
We'll go back in time to that mystic land
Where the dew drops cry and the cats meow
I will take you there, I will show you how

Oh!

And oh how they danced
The little children of Stonehenge
Beneath the haunted moon
For fear that daybreak might come too soon

And where are they now?
The little children of Stonehenge
And what would they say to us?
If we were here... tonight


I've been having a horrible time
Pulling myself together
I've been closing my eyes to find
The old familiar failures

I've been having a horrible time
Pulling myself together
I've been closing my eyes to find
Why all good things should fall apart
Why all good things should fall apart
Why all good things should fall apart
Why all good things should fall apart

I've been having a horrible time
Pulling myself together
I've been closing my eyes to find
Why all good things should fall apart
Why all good things should fall apart
Why all good things should fall apart
Why all good things should fall apart

Like when we would take rides
In your American muscle car
I felt American for once in my life
I never felt it again

So all good things should fall apart
So all good things should fall apart
So all good things should fall apart
So all good things should fall apart


Let's go where the cool kids go
Let's go where the cool kids go
Let's go where the cool kids go

Let's go where the cool kids go
Let's go where the cool kids go
Let's go where the cool kids go

Meet me down at the rock crusher
Meet me down at the rock crusher
Meet me down at the rock crusher

Let's go where the cool kids go
Let's go where the cool kids go
Let's go where the cool kids go

Meet me down at the rock crusher
Meet me down at the rock crusher
Meet me down at the rock crusher


Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong, when I thought I was right
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell it's black when I know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

I could leave but I won't go
Though my heart might tell me so
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
So why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

Turning me on, turning me off
Making me feel like I want too much
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time
Running around, staying out all night
Taking it all instead of taking one bite
Living with you's just putting me through it all of the time

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all

Truth is I love you
More than I wanted to
There's no point in trying to pretend
There's been no-one who
Makes me feel like you do
Say we'll be together til the end

I could leave but I won't go
It'd be easier I know
I can't feel a thing from my head down to my toes
But why does it always seem to be
Me looking at you, you looking at me
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all

Just as I thought it was going alright
I find out I'm wrong when I thought I was right
S'always the same, just a shame, that's all
I could say day, you'd say night
Tell me it's black when I know that it's white
S'always the same, it's just a shame, that's all

That's all

The Stranger
Billy Joel

Well, we all have a face
That we hide away forever
And we take them out
And show ourselves when everyone has gone
Some are satin, some are steel
Some are silk and some are leather
They're the faces of a stranger
But we'd love to try them on

Well, we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger
Did you ever let your lover
See the stranger in yourself

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south every now and then
You've done it
Why can't someone else
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

Once I used to believe
I was such a great romancer
Then I came home to a woman
That I could not recognize
When I pressed her for a reason
She refused to even answer
It was then I felt the stranger
Kick me right between the eyes

Well, we all fall in love
But we disregard the danger
Though we share so many secrets
There are some we never tell
Why were you so surprised
That you never saw the stranger
Did you ever let your lover
See the stranger in yourself

Don't be afraid to try again
Everyone goes south every now and then
You've done it
Why can't someone else
You should know by now
You've been there yourself

You may never understand
How the stranger is inspired
But he isn't always evil
And he is not always wrong
Though you drown in good intentions
You will never quench the fire
You'll give in to your desire
When the stranger comes along

Scarab Sages

I hold your hand in mine, dear,
I press it to my lips.
I take a healthy bite
From your dainty fingertips.

My joy would be complete, dear,
If you were only here,
But still I keep your hand
As a precious souvenir.

The night you died I cut it off.
I really don't know why.
For now each time I kiss it
I get bloodstains on my tie.

I'm sorry now I killed you,
For our love was something fine,
Until they come to get me,
I shall hold your hand in mine.


"My Sacrifice"

Hello my friend, we meet again
It's been awhile, where should we begin?
Feels like forever
Within my heart are memories
Of perfect love that you gave to me
Oh, I remember

When you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

We've seen our share of ups and downs
Oh how quickly life can turn around
In an instant
It feels so good to reunite
Within yourself and within your mind
Let's find peace there

When you are with me, I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice

I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again

When you are with me I'm free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
Cause when you are with me I am free
I'm careless, I believe
Above all the others we'll fly
This brings tears to my eyes
My sacrifice, My sacrifice

I just want to say hello again
I just want to say hello again

My sacrifice.

He wants a shoehorn, the kind with teeth
People should get beat up for statin' their beliefs
He wants a shoehorn, the kind with teeth
'Cause he knows there's no such thing

He asks a girl
If they can both sit in a chair
But he doesn't get nervous
She's not really there

He wants a shoehorn, the kind with teeth
'Cause he knows there's no such thing

Tour the world
In a heavy metal band
But they run out of gas
The plane can never land

He wants a shoehorn, the kind with teeth
People should get beat up for statin' their beliefs
He wants a shoehorn, the kind with teeth
'Cause he knows there's no such thing

What's the sense in
Ever thinking about the tomb?
When you're much too busy
Returning to the womb?

He wants a shoehorn, the kind with teeth
People should get beat up for statin' their beliefs
He wants a shoehorn, the kind with teeth

Groucho Marx Hello, I Must Be Going Lyrics
Hello, I Must Be Going

First I would like to take a bow for Harpo and Chico.

Hello, I must be going.
I cannot stay,
I came to say
I must be going.
I'm glad I came
but just the same
I must be going.

For my sake you must stay,
for if you go away,
you'll spoil this party
I am throwing.

I'll stay a week or two,
I'll stay the summer through,
but I am telling you,
I must be going.

And he's fighting on the planet side

Gonna help him put asunder,
Bad guys who like to loot and plunder

"You'll pay for this, Captain Planet!"

"We're the Planeteers,
You can be one too!
'Cause saving our planet is the thing to do,
Looting and polluting is not the way,
Hear what Captain Planet has to say:"

Are you insane like me? Been in pain like me?
Bought a hundred dollar bottle of champagne like me?
Just to pour that mother#$%^er down the drain like me?
Would you use your water bill to dry the stain like me?

Are you high enough without the Mary Jane like me?
Do you tear yourself apart to entertain like me?
Do the people whisper 'bout you on the train like me?
Saying that you shouldn't waste your pretty face like me?

And all the people say,

"You can't wake up, this is not a dream,
You're part of a machine, you are not a human being,
With your face all made up, living on a screen,
Low on self esteem, so you run on gasoline."

Oh, oh, oh, oh,

Oh, oh, oh, oh,
These voices won't leave me alone,

Well my heart is gold, and my hands are cold,

Are you deranged like me? Are you strange like me?
Lighting matches just to swallow up the flame like me?
Do you call yourself a #$@@ing hurricane like me?
Pointing fingers cause you'll never take the blame like me?

The scene... a sleepy little village where everyone is waking up. The sun rises, songbirds sing, and a cackling goblin shoots one with a sling. Out of nowhere, an orchestra starts up, but oddly no one sets fire to it. Yet.

A skinny female goblin leading a giant vulture walks into the center of town, yawning as she meets her team.

Licktoad town; It's a raucous village.
Ev'ry day
Like the one before
Licktoad town
Full of Licktoad Goblins
Waking up to start...

TOWNSFOLK

Bonfires! Bonfires! Bonfires! Bonfires! Bonfires!

TWITCHY

There goes Magga with her stick, like always
Waiting to thwack poor Ronk again
Ev'ry morning just the same
Since the Gobfest where we came
To compete in this poor goblin town

MAGGA

Morning, Twitchy!

TWITCHY

Morning, Magga.

MAGGA

And where are you off to, today?

TWITCHY

The contest!
We just finished traversing the earbiter
With nasty wires and cutting bits and mud and -

MAGGA

That's nice. Hey kids!
The tinder!
Hurry up!

TOWNSFOLK

Look there she goes that gob is strange, no question
Plotting and planning, can't you tell?

FEMALE GOBLIN

'Cause her bombs are quite loud

MALE GOBLIN

And her bird's up on some cloud

TOWNSFOLK

No denying she's a pyro gob as well

MALE GOBLIN I

MALE GOB 1

We're ready for the next part of the contest.

GRACK

Finished already?

TWITCHY

Oh, we couldn't stop ourselves!
Have you got anything new?

GRACK

Not since yesterday.

TWITCHY (to team):

Nothing new?
Let's blow up. . . . . Grack's house!

MEDGE

That one?
But you've burned it twice!

TWITCHY

Well, it's my favorite!
Far off distance, sneaking around, screaming Grack, chaos everywhere -

RONK

If you like it all that much, let's go!

TWITCHY

For reals?!

GURP

Heh, heh. We insist.

TWITCHY

Thank you.
Thank you very much!

TOWNSFOLK

Look there they go that team is so obsessive
(As the goblin chorus we can tell)
With a cunning, sneaking look
And all the tinder that they took
They're off to burn Grack's house to hell

TWITCHY

Oh, isn't this amazing?
It's my fav'rite part because --- you'll see
Here's where Twitchy fires the thatching
But Grack won't discover that it's all been done by me!

FEMALE GOB

Now it's no wonder that her name means "fireworks"
Her bombs have got no parallel

MEDGE

But behind poor Grack's facade
Twitchy's tossed a smoking wad

MALE GOB

Much more pyro than the rest of us

TOWNSFOLK

They're pyro like the rest of us
Yes, pyro like the rest of us -- do tell!

GRACK

Your Mighty Girthness!
I'm readying the next challenge, Chief Gutwad!
We'll have the greatest contest in the whole world!

CHIEF GUTWAD

I know.

GRACK

No gob alive stands a chance against you. ---
And no team, for that matter.

CHIEF GUTWAD

It's true, Grack.
And I've got my sights set on that one.

GRACK

The team that killed Squealy?

CHIEF GUTWAD

That's the one - the lucky team I'll be hiring.

GRACK

But they're -

CHIEF GUTWAD

The most pyro team in town.

GRACK

I know, but -

CHIEF GUTWAD

That makes them the best.
And don't I deserve the best?

GRACK

They're burning my house!

CHIEF GUTWAD

Right from the moment when I met them, saw them
I said they're ruthless and I fell
Here in town there's only they
In their pyrotechnic way
So I'm making plans to send them and their beasts as well!

GOBLIN PREGENS

Look there he goes -- Isn't he obese?
Chieftain Gutwad
Oh he's immense!
With all that weight, he's hardly breathing
He's such a short, green, fat and gruesome brute!

FEMALE GOB 1

Bonfire!

CHIEF GUTWAD

It smokes!

FLAMEFINGER

Great day

RONK

The fires!

FEMALE GOB 3

You call this bacon?

FEMALE GOB 4

What lovely flames!

MEDGE

There goes

GURP

The house!

MALE GOB 1

A fire!

GRACK

'scuse me!

FLAMEFINGER

I'll get more fuel

GRACK

Please let me through!

FEMALE GOB 6

Those flames -

FEMALE GOB 7

That smoke -

GRACK

My house!

FEMALE GOB

Ablaze!

MALE GOBS

We're not mistaken.

FEMALE GOBS

Is there more bacon?

TOWNSFOLK

It's burning!
Really burning!

TWITCHY

There must be more than this combustive life!

CHIEF GUTWAD

Just watch,
I'll give that team my knife!

TOWNSFOLK

Look there they go
The team is strange and pyro
A most peculiar set of gobs!

FEMALE GOBS

It's a pity and a sin

MALE GOBS

That they fit right in

TOWNSFOLK

'Cause they really are a pyro team
A bombing, scheming pyro team
They really are a pyro team
Those gobs!

What rolls down stairs
alone or in pairs,
and over your neighbor's dog?
What's great for a snack,
And fits on your back?
It's log, log, log

It's log, it's log,
It's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
It's log, it's log, it's better than bad, it's good."

Everyone wants a log
You're gonna love it, log
Come on and get your log
Everyone needs a log

Scarab Sages

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
‘Neath the halo of a streetlamp
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs that voices never share
No one dare
Disturb the sound of silence

“Fools” said I, “You do not know
Silence like a cancer grow
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you”
But my words like silent raindrops fell
And echoed in the wells of silence

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon god they made
And the sign flashed out its warning
In the words that it was forming
And the sign said “The words of the prophets
Are written on subway walls
And tenement halls
And whispered in the sounds of silence”

I never thought I'd die alone
I laughed the loudest who'd have known?
I traced the cord back to the wall
No wonder it was never plugged in at all
I took my time, I hurried up
The choice was mine I didn't think enough
I'm too depressed to go on
You'll be sorry when I'm gone

I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside
The world was wide, too late to try
The tour was over we'd survived
I couldn't wait till I got home
To pass the time in my room alone

I never thought I'd die alone
Another six months I'll be unknown
Give all my things to all my friends
You'll never step foot in my room again
You'll close it off, board it up
Remember the time that I spilled the cup
Of apple juice in the hall
Please tell mom this is not her fault

I never conquered, rarely came
16 just held such better days
Days when I still felt alive
We couldn't wait to get outside
The world was wide, too late to try
The tour was over we'd survived
I couldn't wait till I got home
To pass the time in my room alone

I never conquered, rarely came
Tomorrow holds such better days
Days when I can still feel alive
When I can't wait to get outside
The world is wide, the time goes by
The tour is over, I've survived
I can't wait till I get home
To pass the time in my room alone

Cheated and lied, broken so bad
You made a vow, never get mad
You play the game, though it's unfair
They're all the same, who can compare?
First you lose trust, then you get worried

Night after night, bar after club
Dropping like flies, who woke you up
On the front lawn, sprinklers turned on
It's not your house, where'd you go wrong?
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

There comes a time, in a short life
Turn it around, get a rewrite
Call it a dark, night of the soul
Ticking of clocks, gravity’s pull
First you get close, then you get worried

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first
First you get hurt, then you feel sorry

You're going silent, the silent treatment
It's not inviting now, don't deny what you meant
You get excited, you get excited
You got a feel it, oh, at least you can pretend
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You get excited, you get excited

Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first
Flying like a cannonball, falling to the earth
Heavy as a feather when, you hit the dirt
How am I the lucky one?, I do not deserve
To wait around forever when, you were there first

First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried
First you get close, then you get worried

You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends
You wanna light it, you wanna light it
You wanna light it now, the candle from both ends

War! HUH! Yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Uh-huh
War! HUH! Yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Say it again, y'all

War! HUH! Good God
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Listen to me

Ohhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives

War means tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

I said, WAR! HUH!
Good God, y'all
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Say it again

WAR! Whoa, Lord
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing
But a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Ooooh, war
It's an enemy to all Mankind
The point of war blows my mind
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die
Aaaaah, WAR-HUH!
Good God y'all!
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Say it, say it, say it
War! HUH!
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Listen to me

War! HUH! Yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Uh-huh
War! HUH! Yeah
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Say it again y'all
War! Huh! Good God
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
War, it's got one friend
That's the undertaker
Ooooh, war, has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much to short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can't give life
It can only take it away

Ooooh, war! HUH!
Good God y'all
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Say it again

War! Whoa, Lord
What is it good for?
Absolutely NOTHING!
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there's got to be a better way

Ooooooh, war! HUH!
Good God y'all
What is it good for?
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it

War! HUH!
Good God y'all
What is it good for?
Stand up and shout it
NOTHING!

But... but I like Wayne Reynolds' art...


She may hurt me, but
Won't desert me
'Cause I love her so much, so much, so much

She brings softness to me
Oh, such sweetness, can't you see
That I love her so much, so much, so much

I love her in every single way
I love her no matter what you say
For when I kiss her
I love to kiss her
Oh, oh, oh; oh, oh, oh, oh
So I whisper,

Hold me, darling, in your arms
How I love you for your charms
Oh, I love you so much, so much, so much

I love her in every single way
I love her no matter what you say
For when I kiss her
I love to kiss her
Oh, oh, oh; oh, oh, oh, oh
So I whisper,

Hold me, darling, in your arms
How I love you for your charms
Oh, I love you so much, so much, so much
So much, so much.


For What It's Worth
Buffalo Springfield

There's something happening here
What it is ain't exactly clear
There's a man with a gun over there
Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn
Nobody's right if everybody's wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It's s time we stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep
Into your life it will creep
It starts when you're always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, hey, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, now, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down
Stop, children, what's that sound
Everybody look what's going down


Mama's got a squeeze box
She wears on her chest
And when Daddy comes home
He never gets no rest

'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

Well the kids don't eat
And the dog can't sleep
There's no escape from the music
In the whole damn street

'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out

She's playing all night
And the music's all tight
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes, squeeze me, come on and squeeze me
Come on and tease me like you do
I'm so in love with you
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

She goes in and out and in and out and in and out and in and out

'Cause she's playing all night
And the music's all right
Mama's got a squeeze box
Daddy never sleeps at night

Yeah, well, if that's what that's all about, I think he needs to take a number and get in line behind Sun Tzu.

There is a difference between expressing an opinion and insulting someone.

It's perfectly OK for someone to say; "I don't like this artwork." That's their opinion. I don't necessarily have to agree with it, or like it. But it is just an opinion.

Making a comment along the lines of; "This artist/person is good for nothing" is a derogatory remark - Regardless of their profession or creative contribution. Even if it is your opinion.
Remarks like this breach Paizo's forum etiquette.

This has GOT to be a joke...aaand speaking as someone known for talent with comic timing, you're carrying it a bit far by now.


I take it not too many folks here are familiar with the song War by Edwin Starr.

Scarab Sages

I feel like they have to be pulling my leg, because how can anyone here NOT have heard of one of the most iconic protest songs of the modern age? It's way before my time, and I was never into rock n' roll, but it's just something people...know, you know? It's like "Stairway to Heaven," and "I'm not a crook!"


Looks like a big misunderstanding to me.

Scarab Sages

I thought that might be the case, but...I just had a hard time fully believing it. I feel like one of those 1930s Popeye comic-strip characters where all you can see of them in the last frame is their feet flipping into mid-air from stunned disbelief.


See, you posted the song lyrics then Rysky said this:

Which confused me until I realized that war must be Mr. Reynolds initials, yes?

But even knowing that, I still don't see why people are upset with you (IHIYC). It's Rysky that created a connection between the song and the initials.

Initials? I never thought of that (since I don't know his middle initial) - and only after that did I learn about his "Visions of War" collection-books.

Hence I was inclined to assume they were doing a gag together.

Looking through your art now, Mr. Reynolds, I'd say it's just fine and dandy (I like the Cavalier, the Barbarian, the unfamiliar Oriental Swashbuckler-ish girl, the Necropolitan, the Incarnum Knight, and the dear old Gondian Techsmith all in particular, and now at last I know who we can blame for "The Elder Gods' Gift to Women", which I always thought was kind of hilarious 8E), but with all due respect, when most people think of the word "war," the images that first come to mind are unlikely to be anything of yours, and more likely to be images of those sorts that it would risk violating community guidelines to provide links to.

Even so, seems a bit disingenuous to claim you were attacking someone when clearly you were not. I mean really, how does anyone logically go from song lyrics to "you were attacking me"

I know it's the Internet and all, but still it irritates me to no end.
