I don't know what you've been told
That streets should be paved with gold
I can't know just what you read
But health is all the wealth I need

Birds and squirrels and bees and trees
All the things that ride the breeze
Money makes the world go round
Drags it down and burns it out

I am the caveman
I am the timebomb
Who's got the gameplan
This is the anthem

Fire fire
Burning higher
Making music
Like a choir

    General CommentFreaky lyrics. In the beginning it seems to simply celebrate straight-edgedness, but then it this sort of militant terrorist anthem.

    General CommentMilitant terrorism?
    This is just fucking amazing. There is no way, unless you know the artist to know what was going on in their heads when the lyrics were written. Just listen and love.

    Classic.

    General CommentYeah, I agree with dustyshoes,

    (Maybe the drummer was improvising and came up with these lyrics, who knows)

    General CommentCaptain Caveman and the Teen Angels was a cartoon in the late 70's. Perhaps the lyrics could somehow also be associated with the show?

    Anyways, I do like this song a lot, and the lyrics are pretty cool.

    My Opinionabout as overtly political as this band seems to be, with the exception of the blatant call for the assassination of the then President (in "cowboy"). it is a fine line to walk between dry subject and humourous lyricism. i really like this song.
