Music for Taking Back Our Planet!

Hey, Earthlings!  Hey, Adventurers!  Hey, Pioneers!

March 19th, 2014

There’s a new game in town.  It’s called: Let’s Take Back Our Planet!

Does it seem like civilization is headed in the wrong direction?  Do you work harder only to find you enjoy it less?  Is there something in the back of your mind that is telling you something isn’t right, even if you can’t put a finger on what it is?  Are you frustrated to find out that it ain’t what you know, it’s WHO you know, time and again?

Good!  Thanks for noticing.

So who took our planet?  Let’s see, he’s ranged from the boogeyman to boss man to The Establishment.  For simplicity, let’s call him The Man.  He’s benefited from two huge taxpayer funded bailouts.  You remember, the ones that were supposed to help out Mom and Pop businesses on Main Street?  I don’t remember that so much.

What I do remember is The Man got his bonuses, and we got the bill.  Again.  The problem for The Man is that his days are numbered.  Everyday we learn anew how we’re being cheated and tricked.  The cat is out of the bag, and it’s not going back in!  Which is to say, the Wizard’s status changed once Dorothy and gang pulled back the curtain.

The game of taking back our planet involves all of us being the highest version of ourselves, shining our lights, playfully and creatively exposing The Man’s follies.

My first offering is a song I wrote and tinkered with for a couple of years.  Here goes:

Did You Hear about The Man?

By Steve McNeal

Did you hear about The Man? No, what?

The Man’s going down

 Yeah, yeah

 Love Revolution

 Yeah, yeah, yeah

 I can feel it spreadin’ round

 Yeah, yeah

 People rising up

 Yeah, yeah, yeah

 And that’s what’s going down

 Yeah, yeah

You thought you spelled out Doomsday

When you wrecked those planes into the towers

 You thought you had us all fooled

 Yeah, this would be your finest hour

 

You snuffed out all opposition

 Like JFK and Dr. King

 You thought when John Lennon joined them

                                       That we’d never notice a thing                

 

 Doing dirty deeds in the shadows

 Spraying chemtrails while we sleep

 You want to lead people to your FEMA camps

 You want to line us up like sheep

 

 You declared the War on Terror

 “They” could be anywhere, who knows?

 But now we can see our error:

 Not noticing your sheep’s clothes

 

 When we don’t believe your stories

 We’re conspiracy theorists and quacks

 But your alibis can’t hide the truth

 ‘cuz it’s shining out thru the cracks

 

 There’s one thing you hadn’t counted on

 We woke up and saw your plan

 There’s one thing you hadn’t counted on

 That’s when the truth hit the fan

 

 Did you hear about The Man?  No, what?

 The Man’s going down

 Yeah, yeah

 Love Revolution

 Yeah, yeah, yeah

 I can feel it spreadin’ round

 Yeah, yeah

 People rising up

 Yeah, yeah, yeah

 And that’s what’s going down

Yeah, yeah
