Let me tell you something. All the kids I know say theres no one who will deal with the problems that are closing in around them they turn on the radio, it's some regurgitated pop or some thirty year old love song that was written for their parents don't come singing bout her hair by the window or her eyes in the moonlight or her kisses in the morning I don't need another song about the ocean of your love for a sweater that you gave to your boyfriend These these are desperate times pay attention look up and read the signs believe these are desperate times. All the big boys say that all the best music was written 20 years ago in their generation well, we've had another 20 years of devistation on the planet made real by a nation being lulled into submission Shut Up I don't care about the dress that she wore when she walked through the forest on a cool summer evening I've had it up to here with all these feel good ditties about how life would be much better if we ignored all the problems These these are desperate times pay attention look up and read the signs believe these are desperate times. All around the world the guns are being kokked and they're pointed at the others caught staring at our table well sing up Americans cause the time may be running out before the picture gets flipped and we're all looking down the barrel These these are desperate times pay attention look up and read the signs believe these are desperate times

Lionel Say Hey Lionel Say Hey woke up this morning wasn't feeling too well so I went into my bathroom and after I'd given my Self a nice quick looking over in the mirror I decided it was about time to take a shower so I scrubbed my Self down and I washed my Self off and I got my Self nice and clean went into my bedroom and read a magazine Lionel Say Hey Lionel Say Hey they say you can get anything you want if you're in the mood they say the world is just a stage you're on or going through you can go anywhere in India and ask someone for the time because the world is made of doughnuts and you're a lemon rind Lionel Say Hey Lionel Say Hey Last night I had a dream and in this dream America came right into my home knocked on my door walked on my rug sat me down and said "Well I know it's not too funny but money makes money and money willl keep you alive and it may not make you happy but at least it makes money the best thing for which you can strive well the world is like a symbol and it's money in the middle and it's money will keep it go round and if it makes you crazy well just think of all that money and throwing all that money around" Lionel Say Hey Lionel Say Hey

Fred from accounting making wishes trash in the fountain silvery fishes tuna fish sandwitch six fifty the Atrium clock one thirty already MacBeth at the Xerox he's a player pretending he's fighting a forest of paper and lovely Ophilia she's frowning typing for money and drowning Taxi cab dance near misses passenger lovers near kisses the Atrium garden is glowing she's locked outside it's snowing...

At night they go out and paint the town a doorway, a stairway, a hall in the heart of the city when there's no body else around Dream writes dream on a big blank wall and Progress has got his face in a magazine and Stress has got a bucket of blue when the cops come, man they're gonna split the scene they inline down the alley away from view and Dream dreams of the future and Progress dreams of clean and Stress only dreams about stress all over everything and who would sing about a couple of vandals Progress and Stress and Dream dream Stress has got a kind of brush says it's japanese brags that he can tag about the size of a bus and Progress has got a pen in a pocket leaves a neat mark on a call-box and when it's dawn Progress says 'I've got to get some sleep' mmm-mmm-mmm says 'I never get enough I'm in school I want to be an architect' Stress says 'Man, you're just like the rest of us' and Dream dreams of the future and Progress dreams of clean and Stress only dreams about stress all over everything and who would sing about a couple of vandals Progress and Stress and Dream dream Dream goes home and she dreams a dream in color, red, yellow and blue on the biggest blank wall that you've ever seen up there with the billboards just like the big boys and Dream dreams of the future and Progress dreams of clean and Stress only dreams about stress all over everything and who would sing about a couple of vandals Progress and Stress and Dream dream
