Johnny Hobo And The Freight Trains – The Politics Of Holy Shit I Just Cut My Hand On A Bottle Lyrics 10 years ago
A few corrections:

"She acts the rage which is most of her problem" should be
"She acts her age which is most of her problem"
and I'm pretty sure
"Than the words of Kurt Vonnegut ever could
And all the works of Karl Marx ever fucking could" should be
"Than all the works of Kropotkin ever could
Than all the works of Karl Marx ever fucking could"

One Reason – Song We Sing Lyrics 10 years ago
From the CD booklet:

"There's a popular misconception that the world of High Art is ahead of mass culture but everything in our research shows that, instead of being avant garde, it's derriere. Look at our poster that compares the number of women in jobs traditionally held by men to the number of women showing in major art galleries. The art world is a lot more macho than the post office."

One Reason – Rest Stop Lyrics 10 years ago
From the CD booklet:

"But I won't keep a count of people I have killed as though it were a trophy record or a distinguishing business like notches in a gun, he told himself. I have a right to not keep count and I have a right to forget them.
No himself said. You have no right to forget anything. You have no right to shut your eyes to any of it nor any right to forget any of it nor soften it nor to change it."

*Hemingway - For Whom the Bell Tolls

One Reason – Dead End Roads Lyrics 10 years ago
From the CD booklet:

"Violence and passion were everywhere, bred in its endlessly flat earth. Standing on cleared land one saw all sky, and a man had to stand straight and tall, had to feel his own pride intruding upon the sky, or he would sink into the mud. One did not turn the other cheek in Delta."

*John Barry - Rising Tide

One Reason – Legacy of Empty Buildings Lyrics 10 years ago
From the CD booklet:

"The doctor was thinking: All this fantastic effort - giant machines, road networks, strip mines, conveyor belt, pipelines, slurry lines, loading towers, railway and electric train, hundred-million-dollar coal burning power plant, ten thousand miles of high tension towers and high-voltage power lines; the devastation of the landscape, the destruction of Indian grazing lands, Indian shrines, and Indian burial grounds; the poisoning of the last big clean air reservoir in the forty-eight contiguous United States, the exhaustion of precious water supplies- all that ball-breaking labor and all that backbreaking expense and all that heartbreaking insult to land and sky and human heart for what? Why, to light the lamps of Phoenix suburbs not yet built, to run the air conditioners of San Diego and Los Angeles, to illuminate shopping-center parking lots at two in the morning, to power aluminum plants, magnesium plants, vinyl-chloride factories and copper smelters, to charge the neon tubing that makes the meaning (all the meaning there is) of Las Vegas, Albuquerque, Tucson, Salt Lake City, the amalgamated metropoli of southern California, to keep alive that phosphorescent putrefying glory (all the glory there is left) called Down Town, Night Time, Wonderville, U.S.A."

*Edward Abbey - Monkey Wrench Gang

One Reason – The Black and the Red Lyrics 10 years ago
From the CD booklet:

"But they danced down the street like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!""

*Kerouac - On the Road

One Reason – Sometimes We Bleed Lyrics 10 years ago
From the CD booklet:

"America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves... Every other nation has folk traditions of men who were poor but extremely wise and virtuous, and therefore more estimable than anyone with power or gold. No such tales are told by the American poor."
