D CHORD HAMMER DITTY Don’t wanna go to heaven It don’t suit me well Don’t wanna go to heaven If there is a hell Don’t want to have a job And be told what to do What time to eat and sleep And when to take a poo Don’t want no society Where profit is king I ain’t no commodity I’m a human being They talk about crime Like it’s a great big spree Biggest crime I know of Is private property

CRY ME A RAINBOW She, she was my everything But she, she did not want to try I still don’t know what I did wrong She left without saying good bye Oh, Hoa, I’m gonna cry me a rainbow Oh, Hoa, I’m gonna wash these tears away Oh, Hoa, I’m gonna cry me a rainbow Oh gonna cry me a brand new day Now it’s winter here on the bay The sky, the sky it is iron gray The trees, they are naked everywhere Like my heart they are stripped and bare Coyotes (Kye-oats), coyotes in the distance Howlingout, howling out that never again will you be mine The sky lessens into bleakness And that’s when I begin to cry Oh, Hoa, I’m gonna cry me a rainbow Oh, Hoa, I’m gonna wash these tears away Oh, Hoa, I’m gonna cry me a rainbow Oh gonna cry me a brand new day Oh, Hoa, I’m gonna cry me a rainbow (x3)

SONG FOR THE REVOLUTION Come gather round people, let me tell you a story A hundred year long story of how we won Mindless consumption; people and beauty They were opposite things, on opposite sides Hierarchy and money fuelled social injustice, Their lifestyles were made for insatiable growth. Alienation, McDonaldization Economies and markets and other such woes From little things big things grew (x 4) Well the warnings were dire, the climate was on fire Resistance was brewing all over Bloomington Profit ruled and the people were worried So they all decided they must take a stand So they took back control of their reasons for living People stopped buying unnecessary crap Now it don’t sound like much, but it sure got tongues talking Back in Indianapolis, and then in Washington They brought down the government, the markets, the money Now we’re one with ourselves, we’re one with the land All living things equal, all interconnected It started a hundred years ago, when we made our stand From little things big things grew

UH OH (Sounds Like Somebody Pissed Off Jesus) I got a letter today Saying the bank's gonna take my home I fell behind in the payments When my wife died and now I'm all alone We didn't have no insurance Bills came to a hundred grand We both worked two jobs Nobody cared, nobody gave a damn Now I'm out on the street Shelter ain't got no beds I lost my job when they took my car I'd be better off if I was dead Child welfare came and took my son I ain't seen him in over two years Now all I do is think about what I've lost And drink tequila and beer Uh oh... Sounds like somebody pissed off Jesus Sounds like somebody pissed him off real good You weren't a doin' what you were supposed to You weren't a doin' what you should

STRIP MINING MY HEART Like a virgin forest/ That’s how you look at me Something you can plunder so easily Oh, I’m so defenseless when I see your face That’s when you take my heart and lay it to waste Oh, strip mining my heart/ Digging up my mind You’re tearing me apart/ All of the time Baby you’ve got/ Somehow to stop Strip mining my heart Oh, I’m just like a vein of coal/ And you are a fire My resources are burning up/ In your desire After you’re through with me/ Nothing can grow You bulldoze through my brain/ and lay me low Oh, strip minin’ my heart/ Diggin’ up my mind You’re tearin’ me apart/ All of the time Baby you’ve got/ Somehow to stop Oh, strip minin’ my heart
