"Primal Concrete Sledge" as written by and Vincent Paul/abbott Abbott....
There's a double standard for the way we live
If there's nothing to have, well then there's nothing to save
I'll break a sweat and I don't regret
What you'd kill to see brings out the god in me.

Come and be with me
Live my twisted dream
Pro devoted pledge
Time for primal concrete sledge

The man of a thousand retirements
Will always be the one to tell you when to quit
I won't take stock in a withered man
I'm reaching into you, I'll make you understand

Come and be with me
Live my twisted dream
Pro devoted pledge
Time for primal concrete sledge

Come and be with me
Live my twisted dream
Pro devoted pledge
Time for primal concrete sledge

Come and be with me
Live my twisted dream
Pro devoted pledge
Time for primal concrete sledge

    General Commenti cant believe no one understands what this song is about. its about standing together to revolt against a systems corruption that has us shackled and blinded. hes saying its time to get out our sledges and break down that concrete wall that our system and society has built to block us from truely living a life of freedom. he nails it in the first verse by stating the worlds biggest problem and biggest superpower- which is the capitalistic control over all of our most important survival resources by means of a monetary economic system. its a song about revoutioniving by living differently. not very many lyrics in this song- and they're not needed, cuz phil has a way of speaking a thousand words by only using a few sentences. phil is actually a very wise person. and if u want a better understanding as to what hes talking about in this song- got to the website zeitgeist.com. watch part 1 first- its free. u wont look at the world the same way. its actually quite scary- but ingnorance is far from bliss- but then again- knowledge is even further from anything bliss- but fuck it! dont put ur head in the sand- just watch it- and then spread the god damn word. if u dont believe in revolution- u must watch it! once u have- u will ache for revolution. and if u still think revolution is too radical after seeing this movie- then u seriously lack compassion for human life. primal concrete sledge should have been the theme song for zeitgeist. fuck ingsoc- fuck money, and fuck any form of government or political party and any organized belief. do what thou wilt, and do it to your hearts content so long as your freedom does not interfere with your fellow mans. the world is yours for the taking. it belongs to you. all of it.and 2+2 equals whatever the fuck you want it to- big brother has proved over and over that he is terrible w/ math because he simply has no use for it. fuck all the large bank owners hiding behind their political curtains, they need to be publicly executed. time for primal concrete sledge to break down this wall that controls us with its tight grip of induced fear, lies, manipulation and omissionizing power abusively infultrated. its time to rise. phil is most definitely a revolutionist. and he is not blatant about this- and there is good reason 4 that.. its time for the twisted dream to come true. awareness is the key.===zeitgeist.com-its no bullshit- every piece is fact. orson wells was right in his fears only it started long b4 1984 and actually about a hundred years b4 he wrote the book in 1948- he just didnt know it.

    General CommentYou got the lyrics wrong. It's "If there's nothing to have, well then there's nothing to GIVE" and it's not "Pro devoted sledge," it's "Pro devoted PLEDGE."

    Anyway, great song.

    General CommentIt's a song about unity, man. Read the lyrics again and think about it.
    Phil himself says that on the Vulgar Video when they play it at Moscow.
