I just drive my car to work every day, didn't mean to hurt
nobody
Like 100 million other people just like me, I could tell there
wasn't any other way, I just couldn't
realize but now I think I'll throw
it away
Cuz there's 6 billion other
people just like me
I was thinking about blowin' up all the automobiles
It seemed like such a good idea
You said hey man wouldn't that be hypocritical
No way man cuz mines' the first to go
Do it, Now, Stick the rag in, Light the fucked up
I was thinking about melting down all the cars in the whole
world
Making brand new mountain bikes for all the boys and girls
You said hey man wouldn't that be helter skelter
No way man all we need is a giant smelter
Send it to Peoples Park, Berkeley CA, 94704
Ride a fucking bike
I just lit my car on fire today I didn't mean to hurt nobody
Just like 100 million other people just like me, I could tell
there wasn't any other way
I finally realized and now it's going up in flames
Cuz there's 6 billion other people just like me
Having fun, since I was six, We're only bike terrorists
Five thirty, second Friday, Berkeley Bart

    General CommentRide a fucking bike. I hate how everyone is all into their new shit, which isnt half as good as the old stuff. Open your eyes people and be corrupted by the all knowing ways of Jeff!

    General Commenti take that back; it doesn't take a hippie to be environmentally/socially/politically conscious of the effects that automobiles have on global warming, pollution, dependence, and wars.
