Radio (2005)

19 05 2008

Why should I write a melody that’ll bring you joy and make you free,
Talkin’ about the way you love, the ups and downs and all thereof,
Usin’ my voice to tell you tales, or try to describe the oceans gales,
or makin’ a plea for sanity, in a fucked up world of vanity,
(Chorus)

What is the point of something new, apart from the fact it’s just for you,
And you can be sure you’ll never know, or hear it on the radio,
Out of your mind to let them say what you want to hear be played today,
Why don’t you let them know that you’re dismayed.

Why should I make myself a jerk, and keep on doing this arduous work,
Writin’ the songs that no one will hear, unless they are in the room so near,
I never did what I thought was soap, a graph on a chart with an upward slope,
to make some attorney think he’s real, gotta go through him to make the deal,

(Chorus)

What is the point of something new, apart from the fact it’s just for you,
And you can be sure you’ll never know, or hear it on the radio,
Out of your mind to let them say what you want to hear be played today,
Why don’t you let them know that you’re dismayed.

A song is a work that will last for time, it’s more than a chant, or just a rhyme,
You have to be able to learn to sing, and that takes years of practicing,
I don’t give a shit, and I’ll be blunt, a turntables not an instrument,
Controllable idiots all in a row, fakin’ you out with their playback show,

(Chorus)

What is the point of something new, apart from the fact it’s just for you,
And you can be sure you’ll never know, or hear it on the radio,
Out of your mind to let them say what you want to hear be played today,
Why don’t you let them know that you’re dismayed.

Corporate greed has made your cage, you gotta break out and act your age,
Listen to music that’s only true, or you’ll never know what it does for you,
Givin’ your money for nothing of worth, to shallower people of dubious birth,
Who don’t give a damn for human minds, just linin’ their pockets is all that’s right,

(Chorus)

What is the point of something new, apart from the fact it’s just for you,
And you can be sure you’ll never know, or hear it on the radio,
Out of your mind to let them say what you want to hear be played today,
Why don’t you let them know that you’re dismayed.
