about

From the 12/13/11 show at Soho in Santa Barbara. Closest I will make it to a holiday song this year. More of an OWS support ditty with a seasonal reference in the chorus...
Be happy, be well,

lyrics

They've got my number down
They know how tight to twist
One day they'll claim me
'til then I'll be here
Tic-toc the hour goes
Junk food, junk TV shows
I can't remember
One thing I took in

Every day I promise
That I will change the next day
New Years came
And everybody took the same vow
We'll get it better starting now

Awakened by degrees
Information as disease
The march of progress is
Kicking me lifeless
Good God, look at what we've lost
Built on a holocaust
Gave beads and blankets
For what was priceless

Every day I promise
That I will change the next day
New Years came
And everybody took the same vow
We'll get it better starting now

Things are gonna change this time
Things are gonna change
Every empire has its day, then fades away
Things are gonna change
Things are gonna change

How come it got so bent?
The noble experiment
Maybe its all done
We'll start a new one

Every day I promise
That I will change the next day
New Years came
And everybody took the same vow
We'll get it better starting now
