"Banned (by the Man)" as written by John Robert Cardwell, Philip Abram Dickey and William Lincoln Knauer....
They'll say, my son,
How come you never called?
It's easy 'nough,
so move up and get on with your life

Don't stall
Just come down off the wall and leave behind the corrections

She'll say unto the forces that surround her
Don't get blue and leap into a fire of coke and hash
Some elemental trash
And leave behind the directions

How many days will it take 'til you know the plan?
And how many suns will pass before you understand
You were banned, banned by the man

They'll say, my son,
How come you never call?
It's easy 'nough
You'll feel a little taller
Time cuts slow, but you'll miss it now
You'll know it's me and mine when I make you

How many days will it take 'til you know the plan?
And how many suns will pass before you understand
You were banned, banned, banned
You were banned, banned, banned
By the man, the man, the man
