Lou Reed - Strawman
« Reply #795 on: July 16, 2012, 01:32:52 PM »
Shout-outs to Froderik and RTP!  I've posted this before about another asswipe  who was involved with Bain Capital, but this time I'd like to dedicate it to Bain's main man Mitthead Romney and anyone else who smells like him...

Lou Reed - "Strawman" from the New York album

We who have so much to you who have so little
to you who don't have anything at all
We who have so much more than any one man does need
and you who don't have anything at all, ah
Does anybody need another million dollar movie
does anybody need another million dollar star
Does anybody need to be told over and over
spitting in the wind comes back at you twice as hard

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, Strawman
Strawman, Strawman, yes

Does anyone really need a billion dollar rocket
does anyone need a $60,000 car
Does anyone need another President
or the sins of Swaggart parts 6, 7, 8, and 9, ah
Does anyone need another politician
caught with his pants down money sticking in his hole
Does anyone need another racist preacher
spittin' in the wind can only do you harm, wow

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, Strawman
Strawman, Strawman

Does anyone need another faulty shuttle
blasting off to the Moon, Venus or Mars
Does anyone need another self-righteous rock and roll singer
whose nose he says has led him straight to God
Does anyone need yet another blank skyscraper
If you're like me I'm sure a minor miracle will do
A flaming sword or maybe a gold ark floating up the Hudson
When you spit in the wind it comes right back at you

Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, going straight to hell
Strawman, going straight to the devil
Strawman, Strawman, Strawman
Strawman, Strawman...

YOU'RE GOING STRAIGHT TO HELL, MITT!  Hopefully after a stretch in prison...I can hear the Morgan Freeman voice-over now:  "I wish I could tell you that Mitt fought the good fight, and the Sisters let him be. I wish I could tell you that, but prison is no fairy-tale world.  His asshole was wide as a wagon wheel after they were done".

If you would have justice in this world, then begin to see that a human being is not a means to some end.  People are not commodities.  When human beings are just to one another government becomes obsolete and real freedom is born; SPIRITUAL ANARCHY.

Yeah, but I sing it my own way cause I think I'm better....LOL...

...and the way I sing it goes:

By the dark 'a' the moon, I planted, but there came an early snow...
There's been a hoot owl callin by my window now, for 6 long nights in a row...
She's comin for me I know... and on Wildfire, we're both gonna go...

Yeah, man !

Funny, I listened to that album a day or two before this post, and hadn't in a long while, either.

Spoiled children soon to fall
Freedom is the lie we live
We will wait for tragedy
And scatter helpless to the fire
Sorry for ourselves
Sorry for the things we've seen
No one cries for help
Waiting for the fire

When all our toys are burning
All these empty urges must be satisfied
Acted outside
Precious strength to turn the game to history

Giving up, I'm blown away
He said all I had to say
The final days have come and gone
Safe inside; there's nothing wrong
Nothing in these words
Sorry force of habit
Could it be way over my head?
Helpless to describe it
Could it be way over my head?
Helpless to describe it
Could it be way over my head?
Helpless to describe it
Dumb & cruel
Cut before it's grown
Lies so forced in bored control
It learned all that it cares to know

This is the 2nd song I noticed written by Sting about the way people are so manipulated by words, which is sorta an obvious insight, and yet still also seems so profound anyway.  I respect the Police and Sting.
