Afternoon Prophecies

We were all going / that crazy / old Saturday
Taking the reins with our teeth
Global economy dancing and weaving
Laughing the answers to air
Reaching for everything spiraling to the death mindless of anything else
We have the answers and we are still dancing
Faultlessly chasing our dreams
Reaction'ry corporate government throws up a
Wall and a fence and a bomb
Reading and writing and friendships are reeling
Media push all the lies
Within all the rubble live rats and the bugs and the greedy invincible leaders
Those who play lustily thinking and galloping
Cope in the best way we can
We are still dancing and we are still dreaming
