Here is another one by one of my favorite bands named, the appropriate, Rise Against

This song is called-

"Re-Education (Through Labor)"

 
To the sound of a heartbeat pounding away
To the rhythm of the awful rusted machines
We toss and turn but don't sleep
Each breath we take makes us thieves
Like causes without rebels
Just talk but promise nothing else

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
'Cause sometimes dreams just don't come true
We wait to reap what we are due

To the rhythm of a time bomb ticking away
And the blare of the sirens combing the streets
Chased down like dogs we run from
Your grasp until the sun comes up

We crawl on our knees for you
Under a sky no longer blue
We sweat all day long for you
But we sow seeds to see us through
'Cause sometimes dreams just don't come true
Look now at what they've done to you

White needles buried in the red
The engine roars and then it gives
But never dies
'Cause we don't live
We just survive
On the scraps that you throw away

I won't crawl on my knees for you
I won't believe the lies that hide the truth
I won't sweat one more drop for you
'Cause we are the rust upon your gears
We are the insect in your ears
We crawl
We crawl
We crawl... all over you

We sow the seeds to see us through
Our days are precious and so few
We all reap what we are due
Under this sky no longer blue
We bring the dawn long over-due
We crawl
We crawl
We crawl... all over you

a PM in my box
from reepotomac,  Provisional
on music

music thread: go to

http://mycountrymyass.com

So, I went...

Project Overview:  Can you say "Psychological Warfare?"
    I have a project and I need the help of like minded people. I will try to be brief.
    I have recorded a protest song. The style is country-rock, and the song is pretty direct.
    I need people to request it on radio stations.

I saw that too. Decent song, but the singer sucks. The video sucked too.

Dad's Gonna Kill Me by Richard Thompson
(Introduced by him in concert as an anti-pro war song.)
Out in the desert there's a soldier lying dead
Vultures pecking the eyes out of his head
Another day that could have been me there instead
Nobody loves me here
Nobody loves me here

Dad's Gonna Kill Me
Dad's Gonna Kill Me

You hit the booby trap and you're in pieces
With every bullet your risk increases
Old Ali Baba, he's a different species
Nobody loves me here
Nobody loves me here

Dad's Gonna Kill Me
Dad's Gonna Kill Me

I'm dead meat in my HumV Frankenstein
I hit the road block, God knows I never hit the mine
The dice rolled and I got lucky this time

Dad's Gonna Kill Me
Dad's Gonna Kill Me

I've got a wife, a kid, another on the way
I might get home if I can live through today
Before I came out here I never used to pray
Nobody loves me here
Nobody loves me here

Dad's Gonna Kill Me

Dad's in a bad mood, Dad's got the blues
It's someone else's mess that I didn't choose
At least we're winning on the Fox Evening News
Nobody loves me here

Dad's Gonna Kill Me
Dad's Gonna Kill Me

Dawn Patrol went out and didn't come back
Hug the wire and pray like I told you, Mac
Or they'll be shovelling bits of you into a sack

Dad's Gonna Kill Me.

And who's that stranger walking in my dreams
And whose that stranger cast a shadow 'cross my heart
And who's that stranger, I dare speak his name
Must be old Death a-walking
Must be old Death a-walking

Dad's Gonna Kill Me

7 muzzle monkeys standing in a row
Standing waiting for The Sandbox to blow
Sitting targets in the wild west show

Nobody loves me here

Dad's Gonna Kill Me

Another angel got his wings this week
Charbroiled with his own Willie Pete
Nobody's dying if you speak double-speak

Dad's Gonna Kill Me

Another one:
Orgasmatron by Motorhead

....(Don't look for the first verse if you're Christian.)

I twist the truth, I rule the world, my crown is called deceit
I am the emperor of lies, you grovel at my feet
I rob you and I slaughter you, your downfall is my gain
And still you play the sycophant and revel in your pain
And all my promises are lies, all my love is hate
I am the politician, and I decide your fate

I march before a martyred world, an army for the fight
I speak of great heroic days, of victory and might
I hold a banner drenched in blood, I urge you to be brave
I lead you to your destiny, I lead you to your grave
Your bones will build my palaces, your eyes will stud my crown
For I am Mars, the god of war, and I will cut you down.



I debated about the second song, being new but I think the last two verses would go over here.

http://blog.mikebilly.com/2011/04/fight-of-the-century-keynes-vs-hayek-round-two/
Quote
INTRO: John Maynard Keynes. F. A. Hayek Round Two. Round 2.0. Same economists. Same beliefs. New microphones. New Mustaches. Let’s go. Let’s go. Let’s go.

KEYNES:

Here we are. Peace out, Great Recession.
Thanks to me – as you see – we’re not in a depression.
Recovery. Destiny. If you follow my lesson.
Lord Keynes. Here I come. Line up for the procession.

HAYEK:

We brought out the shovels and we’re still in a ditch.
And still digging. Don’t you think it’s time for a switch
from that hair of the dog? Friend the party is over,
the long run is here, it’s time to get sober.

KEYNES:

Are you kidding? My cure works perfectly fine.
Have a look, the Great Recession ended back in ’09.
I deserve credit. Things would have been worse.
All the estimates prove it. I’ll quote chapter and verse.

HAYEK:

Econometricians, they’re ever so pious.
Are they doing real science or confirming their bias?
Their Keynesian models are tidy and neat.
But that top down approach is a fatal conceit.

CHORUS:

Which way should we choose?
More bottom-up or more top-down?
The fight continues.
Keynes and Hayek second round.
It’s time to weigh in.
More from the top or from the ground?
Let’s listen to the basics
Keynes and Hayek throwin’ down

KEYNES:

We could have done better had only spent more.
Too bad that only happens when there’s a world war.
You can carp all you want about stats and regressions.
Do you deny that world war cut short the Depression?

HAYEK:

Wow. One data point and you’re jumping for joy.
The last time I checked wars only destroy.
There was no multiplier. Consumption just shrank
as we used scarce resources for every new tank.
Pretty perverse to call that prosperity.
Ration meat. Ration butter. A life of austerity.
When that war spending ended, your friends cried disaster.
Yet, the economy thrived and grew faster.

KEYNES:

You too only see what you want to see.
The spending on war clearly goosed GDP.
Unemployment was over, almost down to zero.
That’s why I’m the master. That’s why I’m the hero.

HAYEK:

Creating employment is a straight forward craft
when the nation’s at war and there’s a draft.
If every worker were staffed in the army and fleet
we’d have full employment and nothing to eat.

[CHORUS]

HAYEK:

Jobs are a means, not the ends in themselves.
People work to live better, to put food on the shelves.
Real growth means production of what people demand.
That’s entrepreneurship, not your central plan.

KEYNES:

My solution is simple and easy to handle.
It’s spending that matters. Why’s that such a scandal?
Money sloshes through the pipes and the sluices.
Revitalizing the economy’s juices.
It’s just like an engine that’s stalled and gone dark.
To bring it to life we need a quick spark.
Spending’s the life blood that gets the flow going.
Were it goes doesn’t matter. Just Get Spending Flowing.

HAYEK:

You see slack in some sectors as a general glut.
But some sectors are healthy only some are in a rut.
So spending’s not free, that’s the heart of the matter.
Too much is wasted as cronies get fatter.
The economy’s not a car. There’s no engine to stall.
No expert can fix it. There’s no “it” at all.
The economy is us. We don’t need a mechanic
Put away the wrenches, the economy is organic.

[CHORUS]

KEYNES:

So what would you do to help those unemployed?
This is the question you seem to avoid.
When we’re in a mess, would you have us just wait,
doing nothing until markets equilibrate?

HAYEK:

I don’t wanna do nothing, there’s plenty to do.
The question I ponder is who plans for whom.
Do I plan for myself or leave it to you?
I want plans by the many, not by the few.
Let’s not repeat what created our troubles.
I want real growth not a series of bubbles.
Stop bailing out losers, let prices work.
If we don’t try to steer them they won’t go berserk.

KEYNES:

Come on are you kidding? Don’t Wall Street gyrations
challenge your world view of self regulation?
Even you must admit that lesson we’ve learned
is more oversight is needed or else we’ll get burned.

HAYEK:

Oversight? The government’s long been in bed
with those Wall Street execs and the firms that they’ve bled.
Capitalism is about profit and loss.
You bail out the losers there is no end to the cost.
The lesson I’ve learned is how little we know.
The world is complex, not some circular flow.
The economy is not a class you master in college,
to think otherwise is the pretense of knowledge.

[CHORUS]

KEYNES:

You’ve get on your high horse and you are off to the the races.
I look at the world on a case-by-case basis.
When people are suffering I roll up my sleeves
and do what I can to cure our disease.
The future’s uncertain, our outlooks are frail.
That’s why free markets are so prone to fail.
In a volatile world we need more discretion
so state intervention can counter depression.

HAYEK:

People aren’t chess men you move on a board
at your whim, their dreams and desires ignored.
With political incentives, discretion’s a joke.
Those dials are twisting; just mirrors and smoke.
We need stable rules and real market prices
so prosperity emerges and cuts short the crisis.
Give us a chance so we can discover
the most valuable ways to serve one another.

The entire Nightcore meme flies in the face of IP bullshit. It's a meme made up of thousands of "Nightcored" songs. You take a song you like and tweak it a little by raising pitch and tempo. Sometimes other effects are added. The resulting music is difficult for the Music industry to find since their searches look for sound bytes and one significantly altered as this one won't trigger it:
