Truth in Music
    #4270468 - 06/08/05 03:15 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I recently reheard a song (after 20 years) that really speaks to me. Frank Zappa wrote it. I will share it with you.

The Meek Shall Inherit Nothing

Some take the bible
For what it's worth
When it says that the meek
Shall inherit the earth
Well, i heard that some sheik
Has bought new jersey last week
'n you suckers ain't gettin' nothin'
Is hare rama really wrong
If you wander around
With a napkin on
With a bell on a stick
And your hair is all gone...
the meek shall inherit nothing

You say your life's a bum deal
And your up against the wall...
Well, people, you ain't even got no
Deal at all
'cause what they do
In Washington
They just takes care
Of number one
And number one ain't you
You ain't even number two

Those jesus freaks
Well, they're friendly but
The shit they believe
Has got their minds all shut
And they don't even care
When the church takes a cut
Ain't it bleak when you got so much
(so whaddya do)
Eat that pork
Eat that ham
Laugh till ya choke
On Billy Graham
Moses, Aaron and Abraham...
They're all a waste of time
and it's your ass that's on the line
(it's your ass that's on the line)

Do what you wanna
Do what you will
Just don't mess up
Your neighbor's thrill
and when you pay the bill
Kindly leave a little tip
And help the next poor sucker
On his one way trip...

"A warrior is a hunter. He calculates everything. That's control. Once his calculations are over, he acts. He lets go. That's abandon. A warrior is not a leaf at the mercy of the wind. No one can push him; no one can make him do things against himself or against his better judgment. A warrior is tuned to survive, and he survives in the best of all possible fashions." ― Carlos Castaneda

Money doesn't grow on trees, but deficits do grow under Bushes.

You can accept, reject, or examine and test any new idea that comes to you. The wise man chooses the third way.

I am a huge fan of Zappa, Thanks for the reminder Hue. :thumbup: :heart:
