Rebellious Youth

Things is scary
Down at the white ranchero
It seem like nineteen
sixty four

Hope yer not thinkin'
That it's time for revolution
We all been down that
road before

Don't believe, everything you see.
See the Truth
Rebellious youth

Don't believe, everything you hear.
Hear the Truth
Rebellious youth.

Hope yer not thinkin'
That we'll have a revolution
Like back in nineteen
sixty five

We all knew then that
There was only one solution
No one gets outta' here
Alive.

Don't believe, everything you see.
See the Truth
Rebellious youth

Don't believe, everything you hear.
Hear the Truth
Rebellious youth.

Fever blisters
Scratch the hot sands
Flowing down the stairs

Time stops
And the clocks waver
Seconds stammer by

And we fear
Like our ancient brothers
And we freeze in eternal wail

And we cry
And the dogs are barking
But there are no dogs
There are no dogs here.

Oh, brother! Better pay attention. Better listen to this guy.

In the shade
Of our sweet oasis
We sip our natural herb tea

We left the camels
By a strange old shrine
To some long dead deity

Ooh, ooh
Around the fire
We rest and tell our tales

And the phantom hounds
We hear them howling
But there are no dogs
But there are no dogs here.

Track Name: You Better Not Cry
You Better Not Cry - Music and Lyrics by Rich La Bonté. Copyright © 2017 Rich La Bonté (BMI). All Rights Reserved.

(No you better not)
Cry for sympathy, for victims of the might
Cry for all of those denied their basic right.

(No you better not)
Cry for ignorance, for leaving some behind.
Cry for diligence and of a single mind.

No you better not
Cry.

(No you better not)
Cry for philistines, for liars and for frauds
Cry for politicians and their loyal dogs.

No you better not
Cry.

No you better not
Cry.

(No you better not)
Cry for all that die in battle
Fought for what was fair
Cry for suffering emphysemics
Cannot breathe our air
Cry for displaced, misplaced persons
Starving and ignored
Cry for military peacocks
Marching into war

(No you better not)
Cry for alabaster fields of waving grain
Cry for burning absolution in the rain.
Track Name: Masters of Skulduggery (It's All A Lot of Jive)
Masters of Skulduggery (It's All A Lot of Jive)

Don't inflate your expectations
You might be surprised
When your heroes let you down
You find out that they lied
Kept the money for themselves
Your future plans are fried
So readjust your attitude
It's all a lot of Jive.

She is still a-wonderin'
And wishin' life was free
But it seems so obvious
Ain't how it's gonna be.

Prayin' to the politicians
And their slimy friends
Worship bullshit sacrifices
Justify their ends
Let's count out the profits
One for you and they get five
Masters of Skulduggery
It's all a lot of jive.

Voting for the fabricated
Fraudulent and fake
Promising the universe
With every buck they take
Buying you with plastic
They're paid to take a dive
Cayman Island bank accounts
It's all a lot of jive.
Track Name: The Rising Magoo

Magoo
It's just the rising Magoo

You say it's over, it's all over now
I say please give me a break
You say we're finished it's all done and gone
Just 'cause I made one mistake

I say aw honey, you know that ain't true
My heart belongs to you.

You say I cheated and you say I lied
But she meant nothin' to me
I may have strayed to the other side
But baby we were meant to be

I say aw honey, you know that it's true
My heart belongs to you.

Magoo
It's just the rising Magoo

You say you've had it, can't take it no more
I'm singin' Home On The Range
You say forget it, heard it all before
I say a man can change

Aw, come on honey, you know that it's true
My heart belongs to you.

Magoo
It's just that rising Magoo
