The local hits station has been playing this quite a bit lately. I don't think I ever heard it more than twice a decade until now.

You said I'm gonna buy this place and burn it down 
I'm gonna put it six feet underground 
You said I'm gonna buy this place and watch it fall
Stand here beside me, baby, in the crumbling walls 

Oh, I'm gonna buy this place and start a fire
Stand here until I fill all your heart's desires
Because I'm gonna buy this place and see it burn
And do back the things it did to you in return

You said I'm gonna buy a gun and start a war
If you can tell me something worth fighting for
Oh, and I'm gonna buy this place is what I said
Blame it upon a rush of blood to the head

Honey, all the movements you're starting to make
See me crumble and fall on my face

Pictures of the farm before us 
Old men in a gospel Sephia 
and saddle horses easy on the reins 
'81 a motor in your mama's 17 again 
She's squinting at the dusty wind 
The anger of the plains 

You and I were almost nothing 
Pray to God that God was bluffing 
17 ain't old enough to reason with the pain 
How could we expect to stay in love 
When neither knew the meaning 
of the difference of sacred and profane 

I was riding on my mother's hip, 
she was shorter than the corn 
All the years I took from her, 
just by being born. 

Didn't mean to break the cycle 
At 17 I went by Michael 
No one ever called by my own name anyway 
Half full generations 
Living all these expectations 
Giving way to one, late to have a baby on the way 

You were riding on your mother's hip, 
she was shorter than the corn 
All the years you took from her, 
just by being born.

There's no ghosts in the graveyard
That's not where they live
They float in between us
'What is' and 'what if'
And cast our own shadows
Before our own eyes
You don't get them up here though
They don't come up high

Joy to the city
The parking lot lights
The lion of evening
With the rain in its eyes
Joy to the freeway
Joy to the cars
And joy to you baby, wherever you are
Tonight, tonight, tonight

Golden country your face is so red
With all of your money your poor can be fed
You strut around and you flirt with disaster
Never really carin' just what comes after
Well your blacks are dyin' but your back is still turned
And your freaks are cryin' but your back is still turned
You better stop your hidin' or your country will burn
The time has come for you my friend
To all this ugliness we must put an end
Before we leave we must make a stand

Richrath (c) 1972

Tell me, tell me where I'm going

I don't know where I've been
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
And then tell me again
My heart is breaking, my body's aching
And I don't know where to go
Tell me, tell me, won't you tell me
I've just got to know

Well you can bump and grind
If it's good for your mind
Well you can twist and shout
Let it all hang out

But you won't fool the children of the revolution
No you won't fool the children of the revolution
No no no

Mercy Me - Melissa Etheridge

Well I have lived ten years plus ten 

And ten and ten again 
I have seen too much to pretend 
And then you wanted to come in 
I have survived all of the lies 
They made me wise 
The locks and walls and the peace it buys 
Still when I look into your eyes 
It's a surprise when you say 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 

What do you want from me 
Mercy, mercy baby 
What do you want from me 

well I plead Mercy, mercy baby 
I do not know what this all means 
It's been awhile 
Since I've been stylin' in 
Just my jacket and my jeans 

It hurts to walk 
It hurts to talk 
It hurts to think about it 
Shout about it 
Could I be sure without a doubt 
That you could never live without 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 
Mercy baby 
What do you want from me 
Mercy, mercy, mercy baby 
What do you want from me 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 
I want to fall in you 
Crawl in you 
Surrender 
All in you now 

Could I be sure in you 
Pure in you 
Finding the cure in you 
Now I plead 
Have mercy on me 

Now I am kneeling at the altar 
In the temple of your eyes 
And I am asking for a miracle 
I have been too long paralyzed when you say 

Get up 
Stand up 
Climb the rope of hope 
and open up again 

All the peace you say is promised me 
seems too much to comprehend 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Just hold on tight 
let it all go away 
Mercy baby 
What do you want from me 
Mercy, mercy baby 
what Can this girl believe 

It's gonna be alright 
It's gonna be okay 
Honey just hold on tight 
And I'll make it all go away 
Hold on 

It's gonna be alright 
Mercy darling 
Mercy 
Let it all go away

Riding through the Black Hills, Southbound
Came upon this old ghost town
Sure looked eerie by the light of the old full moon
I was weary I got down
Thought I’d have myself a look around
Through some swinging doors came a half haunted tune
And the broken down sign read ‘The Black Hat Saloon’

Walked right through them swingin’ doors
Something like I’d never seen before
Looked like a scene from 100 years ago
A scarlet lady strode to my side
Said she’d take me on a mystic ride
All night long we danced around the moon
But the sun woke me up to an empty dusty room
With a broken down sign that read ‘The Black Hat Saloon’

Black Hat Saloon, come on and sing to me a melody
Telling me all about what a good life it used to be
Sing to me of the days of the silver and the gold
When the music and the laughter
From the whiskey warms your soul
Now it’s all grown cold

Every picture has its shadows
And it has some source of light
Blindness, blindness and sight
The perils of benefactors
The blessings of parasites
Blindness, blindness and sight
Threatened by all things
Devil of cruelty
Drawn to all things
Devil of delight
Mythical devil of the ever-present laws
Governing blindness, blindness and sight
Suntans in reservation dining rooms
Pale miners in their lantern rays
Night, night and day
Hostage smile on presidents
Freedom scribbled in the subway
It's like night, night and day
Threatened by all things
God of cruelty
Drawn to all things
God of delight
Mythical god of the everlasting laws
Governing day, day and night
Critics of all expression
Judges in black and white
Saying it's
Critics of all expression
Judges in black and white
Saying it's wrong, saying it's right
Compelled by prescribed standards
Or some ideals we fight
For wrong, wrong and right
Threatened by all things
Man of cruelty-mark of Cain
Drawn to all things
Man of delight-born again, born again
Man of the laws, the ever-broken laws
Governing wrong, wrong and right
Governing wrong, wrong and right
Wrong and right

Mm ba ba de
Um bum ba de
Um bu bu bum da de
Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you no man ask for
Under pressure that brings a building down
Splits a family in two
Puts people on streets
Um ba ba be
Um ba ba be
De day da
Ee day da - that's okay
It's the terror of knowing
What the world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming 'Let me out'
Pray tomorrow gets me higher
Pressure on people people on streets
Day day de mm hm
Da da da ba ba
Okay
Chippin' around - kick my brains around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours
Ee do ba be
Ee da ba ba ba
Um bo bo
Be lap
People on streets - ee da de da de
People on streets - ee da de da de da de da
It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming 'Let me out'
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher higher high
Pressure on people people on streets
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn
Why - why - why?
Love love love love love
Insanity laughs under pressure we're breaking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love give love give love give love
Give love give love give love give love give love
'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care for
The people on the (People on streets) edge of the night
And loves (People on streets) dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure

Who is the man who arrives at the wall?
Making the shape of his questions at asking.
Thinking the sun will fall in the evening.
Will he remember the lesson of giving?
Set the controls for the heart of the sun.
