10. AD INFINITUM - Marching on Versailles

This was your final chance
A chance you didn’t take
Like the lightning we will fall on your golden world
This was your final dance
Your final reverence
Now on the horizon you can see our torches burning
No turning back, our army will attack
Your dynasty ends tonight
We are the army of silent cries
Marching on your denial
We are the justice for those who died
For the glory of Versailles

37. Ani DiFranco's new one, "Do Or Die"



"Do Or Die"

Do you ever just wanna give up
Well, me too
Are you shocked by what people get
Get used to
Do you wake up in a cold sweat?
Well, that's sane
Least you got a little brain left
You've got a little brain

'Cause there's foxes in the hen house
And bad news every day
And right there on Pennsylvania Avenue
The sheetless KKK
And there's models wielding microphones
Chasing maniacs around
And everything's on fire
And there's twisters touching down

And I know you got to fight your adrenaline
Just to be a gentleman
And you know I got to fight my amygdala
Just to keep hearing ya

But we can do this if we try
Yeah, if we do this like it's do or die
And we can do this if we try
If we do this like it's do or die

So let's pause
Let us regroup
Let us recover
Let us recoup
Let us remember
That we are charmed
Let us look down at our hands
And remember we're armed

'Cause Yankee Doodle Dandy didn't feel free once
So he used his pen to pick the locks
And Yankee Doodle Dandy did some doozy kind of carpentry
When he fashioned that ballot box

And if you think your vote doesn't matter
Then you're not paying attention
Yeah, everything they do they do to
Keep you from their invention
Yeah, so if you think your vote doesn't matter
Then you're not paying attention
Yeah, everything they do they do to
Keep you from their invention

But we can do this if we try
Yeah, if we do this like it's do or die
And we can do this if we try
If we do this like it's do or die

Do you ever just wanna give up?
Well, me too
Are you shocked by what people get
Get used to?

Do you wake up in a cold sweat?
Well, that's sane
Least you got a little brain left
You've got a little brain

And I know you got to fight your adrenaline
Just to be a gentleman
And I know I got to fight my amygdala
Just to keep hearing ya

But we can do this if we try
If we do this like it's do or die
We can do this if we try
If we do this like it's do or die

55. I blasted this at 12 AM when Obama won.

Blasted it outside in my Republican neighborhood through a PA speaker running 200 watts.
The whole neighborhood's lights went on & some cheered. A police officer showed up right when it was over & fined me pretty big. He was Black. I didn't know that that police force had a Black officer.
He let the song play out first.
The fine was worth every penny!

53. Nada Surf - Always Love

Front man Matthew Caws is as eager for a big blue wave as any of us.



To make a mountain of your life
Is just a choice
But I never learned enough
To listen to the voice that told me
Always love
Hate will get you every time
Always love
Don't wait til the finish line
Slow demands come 'round
Squeeze the air and keep the rest out
It helps to write it down
Even when you then cross it out
But Always Love
Hate will get you every time
Always Love
Even when you wanna fight
Self-directed lives
I want to know what it'd be like to
Aim so high above
Any card that you've been dealt, you...
Always Love
Hate will get you every time
Always Love
Hate will get you...
I've been held back by something
Yeah. You said to me quietly on the stairs,
I've been held back by something
Yeah. You said to me quietly on the stairs.
You said
Hey, you good ones.
Hey, you…
