A Man for No Season (©2004 Anders/Reyes) Sir Thomas More Did Henry the eighth Ever test your faith? Oh Sir Thomas More Our royal line Would change your mind When it falls, falls away Let's celebrate the day A man for no season Our head of state A time of no reason Oh the folly of our wayward day Since he's so false As head of state To treason equate Since he is so false It's a fool's brand Of "united" stand When he falls, falls away Let's celebrate the day A man for no season Our head of state A time of no reason Oh the folly of our corporate ways Oh Sir Thomas More Administer a way Though our state seems too far gone to save? A man for no season Our head of state A time of no reason Oh the folly of our wayward day A man for no season Our head of state A time of real treason Oh the folly of that beltway A man for no season Our headless stain A chauvinist's treason United we'll fall With these travesties of state

How Low and Why (©2004 Anders/O'Bitz) How low and why How low before we open our eyes How low and why How low before we can't ask why How low d'we go with slavery then How low our aboriginal sin How low against the Vietminh How low before it ends How low and why How low our wanton luxury ride How low and why How low before we can't ask why How low d'we go with slavery then How low our aboriginal sin How low against the Vietminh How low before it ends So high we started for the times So high the high for men who were white So high these freedoms, and rights So high so many held them up in awe and began the fight Eyes on the prize How low and why How low so we can turn off the fight How low and why How low now that we can't ask why How low d'we go with slavery then How low our aboriginal sin How low against the Vietminh How low before it ends How low before it ends For it ends ... for it ends

Warrior Kin 04:30
Warrior Kin (©2004 Anders/O'Bitz) Bombs away The warring century You saw so much Born in 1903 And living to the new millennium You thought I was wrong So wrong to ask why Your warrior's way Always ready to fight To strong ideals you were wed Wish you'd taken more time Questioning them The world was burning in your eyes You didn't cry My father's father Warrior kin Hope you found peace In the end There were cold war flames And a MAD policy You've seen so much Born in 1933 To strong ideals you are wed Wish you'd take more time Questioning them The world's been burning in your eyes You haven't cried You are my father Warrior kin Hope you find peace In the end It's no Just Cause Securing hegemony You've seen so much my brother Born in 1963 The world is burning in your eyes You won't cry You are my brother Warrior kin Hope we make peace Before our end The world is burning in your eyes You won't cry You are my brother Warrior kin Hope we make peace Before our end
