"Old Man Government" as written by and Mitchell....
Hey old man what you got in your hand,
could I have a bite of your pie?
I think you’re too old for this game my friend,
I believe it is time to die.

Hey there old man well your ways are no good
they are ancient philosophies yours.
Your grandfathers fathers great grandfathers wars don’t pertain to this world anymore.

Hey old man what you got in your hand,
could I have a bite of your pie?
Hey there young man why don’t you speak out your mind,
theres a cause to be fighting for sure.
Yesterdays views are always filled with abuse
and its time to be closing those doors.

Hey there young man well your news is truth
and its vision is fresh for today.
Don’t be afraid to to put on a parade and don’t you be afraid to say;

Hey old man what you got in your hand
can I have a bite of your pie?
I think you’re too old for this game my friend,
and I believe it is time to die.

Government man you are a weary old fool
and the dollars you seek are no use.
To a new generation grown immune to your school
of a progressive rape of the earth.

Government man why cant you just understand
your corporate sponsors will kill.
Nothing is sacred not even a life
against the cause of a mighty dollar bill.

Hey there old man well I can see that your hand
will not lose its grip without strength.
But im here to tell you that theres faith in our youth,
and if they’ve gotta fight fire they will.

Fight it with a fire not seen since the time
of the mythical creatures of old.
Long before the advent of this crazy way of life
was another way that also grew cold.

Yes now its time we relieve you,
you’re a relic at best,
and its time we seek modern advice.
Now come, come old man give us what you’ve got
in your hand,
you give us a bite of that pie.
