"Millennium Theater" as written by and Ani Difranco....
Millennium theater
Get out there and buy that water and gas
Ramadan, orange alert
Everybody put on your gas mask
First leak it out about the president
Then stand up and shout impeachment
Pull them coattails out from under that little v.p.
Before he has a chance to get in the driver's seat

Millennium spectacle
Everybody put on a show
Slip the little prince in the back door
21st century here we go
Digital whiplash
So many formats so little time
While out in tv nation
Under darkening skies
The resistance is just waiting
To be organized

Halliburton, enron
Chief justices for sale
Yucca mountain goddesses
Their tears they form a trail
Trickle down pollution
Patriarchies realign
While the ice caps melt
And new orleans bides her time
New orleans bides her time

Ladies and gentlemen
Welcome to tonight's show
The millennium theater
Asks that you not smoke
Please turn off your cell phones
And forget what you think you know

    General CommentI love this song lyrically and musically. I especially like the dramatic announcer voice during the last verse.

    She said that the "impeachement" in the song reffered to Clinton, though, not Bush, when she performed this live. She joked that such things as "starting phony wars" were not grounds for impeachment. "Only blowjobs."

    General CommentThis has been my anthem for the last couple of days... US politics affect us in the UK differently, but still in a big way. Britain and America are so closely allied through politics & media that it's hard for the influence not to spread. Anyway, Millennium Theater, or Millennium Theatre, as we spell it over here, has been a great relief of a song at a time when I feel so tired of the war, so tired of the way the world is because we sip our coffee and listen to Ipods while the world is in a crisis situation. Even the leaders. Or maybe *especially* the leaders, and it's so ironic when those people who need to be the most vigilant are the most neglectful.
