Escape the Common People (2012)

Tests

Tests testing you human beings oh yeah
Work working you human beings oh yeah
What’s taught is taught
Teachers teaching children teaching teachers what they forgot  to teach about food,
And the dirt, and all the small, small insects that have been working for free to feed you and me through-out history
Thank you farmers, thank you farmers! for saving seeds to feed you and me and you, the minerals, and the water, and what that leaves
Tests testing you human beings oh yeah
Work working you human beings oh yeah
Insects insecting you human beings oh yeah

Helena Blavatsky, Rudolf Steiner, David Byrne
Hello here! And how is now? (Really good to dance around)
It’s hard to think. Release yourself!
Free your mind. Open up, internally, what you see, what you feel,
In your heart, no disguise, brighten up your lovely face nature is a wild cat!
Stand up straight, shoulders back facing forward, feeling glad.
Quit your job, it doesn’t work, move like (moonlight) water, you’re so cool.
I have sex, I still sleep, I exercise, I love to eat.
David Byrne talking heads, something Rudolf Steiner said
Helena Blavatsky, Theosophy, Philosophy, Telepathy
Try with me
It takes practice to understand, like anything you know first hand
Travel now, you’re still blind
You’re made of parts of earth, not made of money
Be creative, it’s what you’re made of

Buildings
If you’re not doing what you want, why don’t you do something else?
Habits are habits. Do habits change with you as you do?
Building up and tearing down what’s inside the new you (?)
Trees like grass: crack sidewalks, and will soon bring down all the buildings
Buildings and you don’t last long we were water all along
One might say something about it.
I hope that you do.
Some might say: “That’s not what they wanted for you”
Places change like feelings. Do you agree with that too?
Places change like feelings, look at me look at your new hair-do
People always have something to say
I hope you like what you do because today is today
If I can’t agree with my feet, I put my mouth on my shoe
I wish I could agree with my mouth, I’d try to speak something true
One might say something about it.
 I hope that you do.
Some might say: “That’s not what they wanted for you”
Places change like feelings… Do you agree with that too?

Nature
Watch out! Watch out!!
Where’s the money, at?
You got some?
Well, that’s more than most.
You got some?
Well someone wants it more than you.
Like the person beside you,
Who’s on you’re side?
NATURE
Predominantly poor neighborhoods there aren’t any places to get healthy food
No fresh fruit, no fresh vegetables, no education about these things
And the food stamps in New York City they only get you cold food, like chips
Watch out! K**ft Foods is killing you!
What’s Britain gonna do next?
Poor neighborhoods getting sicker…No Healthy food!?
And grocery stores only go up where rich people will come, like:
Choices Foods, Thrifty’s, Safeway, Save-on-foods… What other name you got Save-on-foods?
I know you’re hiding out there in a rich neighborhood
Health Science teaches: You don’t need doctors!
The doctors are just catching another body down the river…You gotta fix the pool !
You need healthy food and exercise
Ask yourself: (What is that?)
Quit your job, grow some food, save the seeds – don’t need money!
Live with the living.
 Learn to love nature
Is there anything greater??
Watch out! Where’s all the money, at? You got some? That’s more then most.
Nature wants you back.
Watch out!
Ask yourself: (What causes me to get sick?)
And
What does Britain want! ?
(Still taking you over, when you speak English)
When you speak English you are taking you over
Nature wants you back
Watch out! Where’s the money, at?
Someone wants it more than you
Like the person beside you
Who’s on your side?
NAture NaTure NatuRe
There will be no resurgence of happiness with money
It is not the answer, Nature, is the answer.
Money, won’t bring you happiness, you heard it before
Who’s on your side? Who?
       Who?
Nature


Particles
Oh, hey give me a peak into your magic eyes
You’ve got a flicker so spiritual
Peacefully listening peacefully I don’t want anything at all,
I don’t need anything either
Let’s communicate peacefully
Let’s be and let it be, really.

Hey now Hey now
Atmosphere Compound
Hey now Hey now
Practically Particles (x2)

Like a child looking around
Making sense of these weird sounds
Like a window open letting in the air, Oh,
How I want to be

Beachy Beachy
From now until forever Holiday
From no until then, what do you say?
We’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll nap
We’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll nap
We’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll laugh
And we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll swim and we’ll nap under palm trees
And we’ll wake up from our nap and we will make off with sunlight

Note book
Oh, oh, I’m gonna go to bed un-happy
With how I’ve communicated to all my note books
See the time you get is only a fraction, that’s a small amount put your finger tips on and squeeze it
That’s your lifetime,
That’s your life known if you’re lucky,
Because probably no one’s gonna know you
Except for right now.
Right now



Language
Lacking the message,
Loosing the thought,
Leading the message,
Looking for feeling,
The always seeming to be,
Lacking the masses,
Loosing the thought,
Leading the masses,
Looking for feeling,
The always seeming to be
Languages are only sounds,
Like little critters, creeks and caws
Squeaks and snaps, climbing claws
Like snow dampened sound
Imagine you are not human bound
Once thought alone, now realized
Music is a wonderful thing,
The way it moves to make you sing!
Out of rhythm of emotion
Out a signal more vast then comprehendible
Your body sings
Your body sings when you think you are undetectable
And what you can’t see, you see, it can see you,
 It can hear your heart and singing sounds,
Your breathe your bones and the steps you’re bound
Try not to move, be still be silent, don’t look around
In your skin and on the ground,
You’re moving slowly closer to it
Don’t fear it, live now and love it
Sing it, hum it; let it out the sounds from your bravest spirit

Let’s be silly, be silly
Recreational
Re-creational
Re-create it all
Let’s be silly, be silly
But most people want to play the Judas
And the whole world’s got eyes now
The whole world’s got eyes
So, I would like to have babies with my wife
And our babies will eat the worlds eyes, they’ll eat your eyes,
And our babies will be kind,
Not human, not human…kind
Let’s be silly, be silly
Recreational
Re-creational
Re-create it all
Let’s be silly, be silly

What’s my memory for?
Nature, when you coming for me?
Nature, when you gonna eat me?
And what will I become?
 And what will become of me?
And what will become of my wife?
How will I find her?
How will I be recognized?
What’s my memory for if I can’t die once and come back for more?

What’s my memory for?
Let my spirit be known
More construent than light
All my strength will be shown (x2)
What’s inside me?
Why do I bleed?
What’s inside me?
What’s my memory for?
And how will I find my wife?
