Songs that have been stuck in Patrick's head, and so he's going to copy and past up the lyrics here for you to read.

The Happiest Place on Earth
by: Desaparecidos (Lyrics in italics have been edited for the very young and immature)

I want to pledge allegiance to the country where I live
I don't want to be ashamed to be American
But opportunity, no it don't exist
It's the opiate of the populace
We need some harder cheese now
The truth's getting around
Each public school is a halfway house
Where the huddled masses sober up and up
Enough? There's not enough
To fatten the cows and feed all of us.
It's just a rationing of luck
What can't be bought gets raffled off.
Oh you, good you, shed greed on thee,
Your shining sea turned a dirty green
From the industry off the shores of New Jersey
I got a letter from the army so I think that I'll enlist
I'm not brave or proud of nothing I just want to kill something
Too bad that nowadays you just point and click
Swing low satellite, hot white chariot
In the computer's blue glare bombs burst in the air
There was a city once now nothing's there
Our freedom comes at their expense it makes sense does it?
Dollars and cents: they're stretching barbed wire across the picket fence
That's surrounding your housing development
In case you lack the confidence
Oh you, my you give strength to thee
These amber waves purple majesty is nothing but
Backdrops for Disney
Look up close it's superimposed
On a blank blue screen yea its fantasy
Ninja magical
The dream floats like a chemical
Through each snapped synapse
Television past that is beautiful
No more
No more
No more

I wonder if this song has anything to do with my cynical view of the state of politics? Hmmm...

p.s. On a completely random note, my wife's grandma has recent pictures of her with Willie Nelson. How rad is that? Christy posted them on her blog.
