I got a coin in your palm I can make it disappear I got a card up my sleeve Name it and I'll pull it out your ear
I got a rabbit in the hat If you wanna come and see This is what will be This is what will be
I got shackles on my wrists Soon I'll slip and I'll be gone Chain me in a box in the river And rising in the sun
Trust none of what you hear And less of what you see This is what will be (This is what will be) This is what will be
(I'll cut you in half)
I got a shiny saw blade (a shiny saw blade) All I need's a volunteer I'll cut you in half While you're smilin' ear to ear
And the freedom that you sought Driftin' like a ghost amongst the trees This is what will be This is what will be (This is what will be)
Now there's a fire down below But it's coming up here So leave everything you know Carry only what you fear
On the road the sun is sinkin' low Bodies hanging in the trees This is what will be (This is what will be) This is what will be

Sarah from Kennewick, WaBrilliant. Just listen to the lyrics; hauntingly poetic, forget the war stuff when you listen to it & apply it to your own personal past.
Gene from San Diego, CaPeople like the previous person claims that it is against the War in Iraq. While it was possibly inspired by such times, it is actually a song about how war is formed and how it happens. Honestly, this song makes me shiver because of it's truthfulness. It maintains that cold, evil (can I say "evil"), shady feel that is real. It can apply to the current war, but it is mostly about all wars that occur.
13scarecrows from Sallisaw, OkIts juz a protest song about the Bush Administration. C'mon bruce get over it! :)
"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
The TV show Cheers was nearly canceled after its first season, but the theme song, "Where Everybody Knows Your Name," was very popular. To satisfy viewer demand, the theme was made into a full song and released as a single.
Angus Young created the distinctive opening guitar part for "Thuderstruck" by playing with all the strings taped up, except the B. He learned the studio trick from his older brother George Young, who was the rhythm guitarist for The Easybeats.
Mike Campbell from Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers played the slide guitar on "Sixth Avenue Heartache." There is a connection here - Wallflowers lead singer Jakob's dad, Bob Dylan, played with Tom Petty in The Traveling Wilburys.
