Revolution Blues

(Written: t.b.d.)


Well, we live in a trailer
    at the edge of town
You never see us
    'cause we don't come around.
We got twenty five rifles
    just to keep
        the population down.
But we need you now,
    and that's why
        I'm hangin' 'round.
So you be good to me
    and I'll be good to you,
And in this land of conditions
    I'm not above suspicion
I won't attack you,
    but I won't back you.

Well, it's so good to be here,
    asleep on your lawn.
Remember your guard dog?
    Well, I'm afraid
        that he's gone.
It was such a drag
    to hear him
        whining all night long.
Yes, that was me with the doves,
    setting them free
        near the factory
Where you built your computer,
I hope you get the connection,
    'cause I can't take
        the rejection
I won't deceive you,
    I just don't believe you.

Well, I'm a barrel of laughs,
    with my carbine on
I keep 'em hoppin',
    till my ammunition's gone.
But I'm still not happy,
    I feel like
        there's something wrong.
I got the revolution blues,
    I see bloody fountains,
And ten million dune buggies
    comin' down the mountains.
Well, I hear that Laurel Canyon
    is full of famous stars,
But I hate them worse than lepers
    and I'll kill them
        in their cars.
