    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
    I think 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 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

    I was just thinking while reading the above that the more things change, the more they stay the same. :dunno:

    Then there's this...


    Looked in my laptop what did I see
    A flashing message said today therapy
    Rather walk through fire
    Than converse with my shrink
    But I'm getting better
    That's what some people think

    Talk about denial
    And dysfunctional things
    Head's like a bell somedays
    It dongs and it dings
    My brain playing tricks on me
    It likes to shift gears
    Spend lots of money
    But I'm tackling my fears

    Chorus
    Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost
    These are the things that terrify me the most
    No aliens, psychopaths or MTV hosts
    Scares me like vampires, mummies and the Holy Ghost
    Had a dream last night
    Took a time traveling ride
    Back to my childhood
    Where those monsters reside
    They snack on innocence
    And dine on self-esteem
    But I like to be in touch with what makes me scream

    Chorus
    I was never ever frightened
    By the murderer on our block
    He nurtured orchids and raised hamsters
    The neighborhood is still in shock
    La, la, la, la, la...

    So many dragons lurking out in the fog
    So many crazy people mumblin' monologues
    It's not the tales of Stephen King that I've read
    I need protection from the things in my head
    Chorus








    gee...guess who? :D
