I Think I'll Stay Home and Get Centered

©1992 Dan Scanlan (Cool Hand Uke)

There's a two-faced, back-peddling, non-inhaling cult-killing World Bank shill in the White House
Sold-out donkies and treacherous Newts populate the Senate and the House
The cops in LA with a straight of four clubs beat on a King on his back
While media-made dullards yahoo with their flags the massacre of Iraq.

I think I'll stay home
I think I'll stay home
I think I'll stay home and get centered.

The Kuwaiti emir cried a fat tear when his gold bathroom faucet was plundered
I know how he feels--I had a few bucks in a savings and loan that went under.
My Dad's pension plan went belly-up on the whim of a legislative dolt
While Army storm troopers dropped from the sky in Panama, Iraq and Humboldt.

(chorus)

I'll hide my head in the sand to my fill and in private take stock of my karma
I'll stall my demise with a homeopath pill and stake out a plot in Nirvanna.
The couch potato hugs a beer in his hand, numb in his New World Confusion,
But I've taken workshops all over this land, I've got a good hold on illusion.

(chorus)

Cop cars screech U-turns at Broad Street and Pine
While garbage-slinging supervisors make skate boards a crime.
Puttin' the jail at the top of the old sewer line--that's pushing our luck--
Kind of like hauling our health and our wealth on a Robinson Timber truck.

I think I'll stay home
I think I'll stay home
I think I'll stay home and get centered.

I think I'll say o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-m-m-m-m-m-m-m
