"What Are Their Names" as written by and David Crosby....
[Instrumental (Electric Guitars)]
I wonder who they are
The men who really run this land
And I wonder why they run it
With such a thoughtless hand
What are their names
And on what streets do they live
I'd like to ride right over
This afternoon and give
Them a piece of my mind
About peace for mankind
Peace is not an awful lot to ask
[Instrumental Ending (Electric Guitars)]

    General CommentSadly, this lyric makes as much sense today, as it did in the seventies when it came.
    Crosby speculated who was the REAL power behind behind the scenes in our glorious White House. The lyric questions our democracy, in a way that was necessary in the seventies, and, SADLY, is still necessary today.

    If I can comment the music, then I have to say it's fantastic. The way the song builds up, and in the end deliver the all-powerful verse; great! :)
