  • The partisans not the artisans
    Are doing their dirty show
    But I ripped my pants
    Doing some dance
    That I learned in France
    And they think there ain't
    Nothin' to know
    Used, abused
    Locked up, beaten and fined
    But I got free
    Copped a plea
    And I can see
    That there ain't no freedom
    Bell gonna chime
    This time

    Truth and love
    Are my law and worship
    Form and conscience
    My manifestation and guide
    Nature and peace are
    My shelter and companion
    Order is my attitude
    Beauty and perfection
    Are my attack
    False faces
    Fast company
    A night of thrills
    With no jealousy, no poison

    Nobody's tool
    Will be a public fool
    To manipulate the masses
    Who lie and cheat
    And eat their meat
    And think it's sweet
    While the rest all clean their glasses
    In status classes Writer/s: WAYNE KRAMER
