Luddite lover
Forgiving father
Unhappy forever
Live it to where you can
Those skies must drive you wild
This earth around you
This silence around you
Be with the sky tonight

You've ruined more than you'll gain
Know what you mean, but not what you do
Nature will take care of itself
Your ego will destroy itself

Montana Autumn 78

Your life into the future
Maybe forty years
A life worth saving or lonesome ever more
The nothingness of truth
Or everlasting youth
Ideology or the ultimate thrill

You've ruined more than you'll gain
Know what you mean, but not what you do
Nature will take care of itself
Your ego will destroy itself

Montana Autumn 78

You've ruined more than you'll gain
Know what you mean, but not what you do
Nature will take care of itself
Your ego will destroy itself

Montana Autumn 78
78

78

Montana

    General CommentThis is about Theodore John "Ted" Kaczynski, otherwise known as the Unabomber. He embarked on a mail-bombing spree from 1978-1995, killing sevearl people and injuring many more. He lived as a recluse in a cabin in Montana.

    "Luddite lover" refers to a group of industrial workers who protested against automation of factories in the 19th century, going as far as to sabotage factory equipment. Kaczynski beleived that modern industrial practises were destroying people's freedom and happiness, and also sobotaged industrial developments that were taking place near his cabin.

    I have to admit I don't understand all of this song. I wonder if "Know what you mean, but not what you do" suggests that the MSP agree with his beliefs, but not his bombings.
