Quickly

Don’t you wish that you could just bail out sometimes? Just keep on going way, way, way past your subway lines? Take the wind from the streetcars and let it blow you up until you are so high, so high you don’t know where the hell you are? Wouldn’t that be nice? I don’t know what I’m doing here. There’s got to be a place for us to make it. I don’t know what I’m doing here. There’s gotta be a place, gotta be a time. We’ve just gotta find it quickly Quickly. Wouldn’t that be nice? I’ve got a lot to say but it doesn’t mean I have any say. Talk isn’t cheap anymore, you’ve gotta pay for your platform. We live in a system designed to keep us poor. Every time you think you’re ahead, you’re no further than before. And I don’t own this land on which I choose to take a stand. They’ll probably charge me more taxes and then it’s off to work while the government relaxes. The only way I’m going to make it is if I show up on their t.v. and the only way I wanna make it is if you show up beside me. Wouldn’t that be nice? I don’t know what I’m doing here…LIVING LEGENDS, ADEQUATE FUNDS, SAFE STREETS, NO GUNS, FREE PARKING, REGULAR CHEQUES, NO NEED FOR SAFE SEX –Wouldn’t that be nice? We just gotta find it Quickly.
