I'm not Liberal, I'm paying attention.

Waste is not moral.

oxygen - willie mason I wanna be better than oxygen So you can breath when you're drowning and weak in the knees I wanna speak louder than Ritalin for all the children who think they've got a disease I wanna be cooler than TV for all the kids that are wondering what they're going to be We can be stronger than bombs if you're singing along and you know that you really believe We can be richer than industry as long as we know there's things we don't really need We can speak louder than ignorance coz we speak in silence every time our eyes meet On and on and on it goes The world it just keeps spinning Until I'm dizzy Time to breathe So close my eyes and start again anew I wanna see through all the lies of society, to the reality, happiness is at stake I wanna hold up my head with dignity, proud of a life where to give means more than to take I wanna live beyond the modern mentality where paper is all that you're really taught to create Do you remember the forgotten America? Justice, equality, freedom to every race Just need to get past all the lies and hypocrisy, make up and hair, to the truth beyond every face Then look around to all the people you see How many of them are happy and free? I know it sounds like a dream but it's the only thing that can get me to sleep at night I know it's hard to believe but it's easy to see something here isn't right I know the future looks dark but it's there that the kids of today must carry the light On and on and on it goes The world it just keeps spinning Until I'm dizzy Time to breathe So close my eyes and start again anew If I'm afraid to catch a dream I weave you baskets and I float them down the river stream Each one I weave with words I speak To carry love to your relief I wanna be better than oxygen So you can breath when you're drowning and weak in the knees I wanna speak louder than Ritalin for all the children who think they've got a disease I wanna be cooler than TV for all the kids that are wondering what they're going to be We can be stronger than bombs if you're singing along and you know that you really believe We can be richer than industry as long as we know there's things we don't really need We can speak louder than ignorance coz we speak in silence every time our eyes meet On and on and on it goes The world it just keeps spinning Until I'm dizzy Time to breathe So close my eyes and start again anew
