Tell me more
about your situation
Evil men
who are coming for your nation
evil forces
who are coming for your freedom
secret congress
nobody ever see them

it's propaganda
it's just like Mr. bush
everywhere I look
hey, mister
tell me what you know
hey, mister
tell me what you know

since somebody wants
to make a confrontation
they wont get no play
on your radio stations
they won't get no time
on your television
the word come down
from the owner corporation
it's propaganda
now it's everywhere I go
it's propagnda
it's on your tv show
everywhere I go
hey, mister
won't you tell me what you know
hey, mister
oh, tell me what you know

on 9-11
the tv showed me arabs cheering
it's supposed to be live television
but over there they're sleeping
street-side posters
that encourage me deepen
to report my local terrorist
and the company they're keeping
tell me what I know
it's just like mr. bush
hey mister
won't you tell me what you know

and who are they?
in Guantanamo Bay
there ain't no crimes and no names
written in my paper
political prisoner
wandering what his charge is
secret beatings
in taxi-cab garages
now tell me where I go
it's propaganda
it's on your radio
everywhere I go
hey, mister
can you tell me what you know
hey, mister
tell me what you really know

Song For the Asking
2004-03-04 19:59:54 ET

this is my song for the asking
ask me and I'll play
so sweetly I'll make you smile

here is my tune for the taking
take it don't turn away
I've been waiting all my life

thinking it over I've been sad
thinking it over I'd be more than glad
to change my ways
for the asking

ask me and I'll play
all the love that I hold inside...

- Paul Simon

Something Old, Something New

Bird on the Ledge

a cold winter chill brings
a tiny brown thrush,
looking for warmth.

a bird just sitting,
flakes falling down
seeking a way
out of the storm

he taps at my window
I want to let him in
but it's not something you do.

there's something inside
he wants it so bad
the window's standing strong.
he must find another way

he takes flight
dodges the flakes
and the wind takes him
where it may.


We're all looking for love
we all need someone to hug
someone to kiss
someone to miss

Is it instinct
or some basic need to feel?
is it culture
We're told it so it's real?

Loneliness is tough
And after awhile
you'll find your love
seperated by miles

happiness comes quick
and fills you both
happiness is weak
and needs work.

so is it love
or just killing the lonely?
is this love
or just settling?

and in the end
where is this going
and in the end
does it matter?
