  1. The problem with most protest songs is that they are often corny, cheesy often with excruciating, sanctimonious lyrics that make you want to draw your fingernails down an old fashioned blackboard. Then of course there's the nauseating computer graphic video. Some, like many here are comedic but they never last. Written and penned in less than 60 minutes, normally to recognizable 3 or 4 chord tunes that were hits from the past, they are just as instantly forgettable. The good lasting protest songs were done by the likes of Woodie Guthrie, Bob Dylan, John Lee Hooker, Howlin' Wolf, Elmore James etc. - powerful as fuck but probably lost on most people nowadays. I doubt most people here would know what I was talking about. My dad taught me a lot about music. My fave ever protest song for explosive lyrics, atmosphere, originality was by a guy called Country Joe singing The Vietnam Song, sung in front of thousands of people. I realize people my age don't listen to lyrics much but if anyone can point me in the direction of a better protest song than this, please do so. Nothing I've seen on this thread comes close. Give me an 'F', give me a 'U' give me a 'C' , give me a 'K' ...what's that spell. Just brilliant.
  2. In all honesty, the lyrics could have been written by a 5 year old child such is the simplicity. Explain real lyrics like this : They're selling postcards of the hanging, they're painting the passports brown The beauty parlor is filled with sailors, the circus is in town Here comes the blind commissioner, they've got him in a trance One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker, the other is in his pants And the riot squad they're restless, they need somewhere to go As Lady and I look out tonight, from Desolation Row Cinderella, she seems so easy, "It takes one to know one, " she smiles And puts her hands in her back pockets Bette Davis style And in comes Romeo, he's moaning. "You Belong to Me I Believe" And someone says, "You're in the wrong place, my friend, you'd better leave" And the only sound that's left after the ambulances go Is Cinderella sweeping up on Desolation Row Now the moon is almost hidden, the stars are beginning to hide The fortune telling lady has even taken all her things inside All except for Cain and Abel and the hunchback of Notre Dame Everybody is making love or else expecting rain And the Good Samaritan, he's dressing, he's getting ready for the show He's going to the carnival tonight on Desolation Row Ophelia, she's 'neath the window for her I feel so afraid On her twenty-second birthday she already is an old maid To her, death is quite romantic she wears an iron vest Her profession's her religion, her sin is her lifelessness And though her eyes are fixed upon Noah's great rainbow She spends her time peeking into Desolation Row Einstein, disguised as Robin Hood with his memories in a trunk Passed this way an hour ago with his friend, a jealous monk Now he looked so immaculately frightful as he bummed a cigarette And he when off sniffing drainpipes and reciting the alphabet You would not think to look at him, but he was famous long ago For playing the electric violin on Desolation Row Dr. Filth, he keeps his world inside of a leather cup But all his sexless patients, they're trying to blow it up Now his nurse, some local loser, she's in charge of the cyanide hole And she also keeps the cards that read, "Have Mercy on His Soul" They all play on the penny whistles, you can hear them blow If you lean your head out far enough from Desolation Row Across the street they've nailed the curtains, they're getting ready for the feast The Phantom of the Opera in a perfect image of a priest They are spoon feeding Casanova to get him to feel more assured Then they'll kill him with self-confidence after poisoning him with words And the Phantom's shouting to skinny girls, "Get outta here if you don't know" Casanova is just being punished for going to Desolation Row" At midnight all the agents and the superhuman crew Come out and round up everyone that knows more than they do Then they bring them to the factory where the heart-attack machine Is strapped across their shoulders and then the kerosene Is brought down from the castles by insurance men who go Check to see that nobody is escaping to Desolation Row Praise be to Nero's Neptune, the Titanic sails at dawn Everybody's shouting, "Which side are you on?!" And Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot fighting in the captain's tower While calypso singers laugh at them and fishermen hold flowers Between the windows of the sea where lovely mermaids flow And nobody has to think too much about Desolation Row Yes, I received your letter yesterday, about the time the doorknob broke When you asked me how I was doing, was that some kind of joke All these people that you mention, yes, I know them, they're quite lame I had to rearrange their faces and give them all another name Right now, I can't read too good, don't send me no more letters no Not unless you mail them from Desolation Row
  3. This is roughly what's happening in India and the relationship between Big Pharma, governments, hospitals, mainstream media and profits. Pfizer have a very strong relationship with Israel and had tried twice to get into the 1.2 billion population Indian market but prime minister Modi had refused them twice based on the fact that the injections (not vaccines) had not gone through all the clinical trials. Pfizer even tried bribing Modi with free inhibitors, statins, medicines country wide for other ailments but the government still wouldn't budge. Then the MSM, who are controlled and owned now by just SIX American companies - and who control 95% of the global media launched their propaganda war to terrify the entire nation via TV, radio, newspapers and social media. At the same time they closed down major parts of hospitals and dedicated beds to Covid (which remained empty) as well as locking up oxygen tanks used for normal medical cases. This, together with the food supply being cut in certain locations meant some people were starving, others who needed oxygen from serious illnesses were dying in the streets while life saving operations were cancelled. As you may or may not know, The Gates Foundation funds every relevant institution and university in the UK and the West. I'm pretty sure you will know where many doctors, psychiatrists and epidemiologists salaries are coming from but many doctors and professors remain completely ignorant. (We'll see them on the streets again pretty soon supporting Climate Change.) Gates and his cronies also fund the pharmaceutical companies and Pfizer were under pressure to vaccinate at least 30% of the Indian population which would have brought in $6 billion, obviously boosting the share price. The world wide target is $40 billion (per annum I assume.) The returns from having the world vaccinated easily eclipses the amount of university and Pharma investing.
