Living Color - Cult of Personality




http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xxgRUyzgs0

Quote:Cult of Personality
Living Colour
(V Reid, C. Glover, W. Calhoun, M. Skillings)

Look into my eyes, what do you see?
Cult of Personality
I know your anger, I know your dreams
I've been everything you want to be
I'm the Cult of Personality
Like Mussolini and Kennedy
I'm the Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality

Neon lights, A Nobel Price
The mirror speaks, the reflection lies
You don't have to follow me
Only you can set me free
I sell the things you need to be
I'm the smiling face on your T.V.
I'm the Cult of Personality
I exploit you still you love me

I tell you one and one makes three
I'm the Cult of Personality
Like Joseph Stalin and Gandhi
I'm the Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality
Cult of Personality

Neon lights a Nobel Prize
A leader speaks, that leader dies
You don't have to follow me
Only you can set you free

You gave me fortune
You gave me fame
You me power in your God's name
I'm every person you need to be
I'm the Cult of Personality

Quote:A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other methods, to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise.[1] Cults of personality are usually associated with dictatorships. The sociologist Max Weber developed a tripartite classification of authority; the cult of personality holds parallels with what Weber defined as "charismatic authority". A cult of personality is similar to hero worship, except that it is established by mass media and propaganda.

Yea, that line-up had changed somewhat when we saw them. To see a Californian band who sell out over in their neck in such a small place in Wales was ace.

And dude, you posted "The Meadow"...sweeeeeet!

Pity we didn't hear old songs at the gig, but I get Jared's point that the band has moved on since then, especially as the songs contain a lot regarding Jared's own "waking" and journey. It would be like someone asking me to read some of my really old poetry... "no ta". Wink

Lyrics:
Quote:been watching for a long time
seeing the world drawing closer
to the edge of calamity
how many ever wars have
started over mankind’s opium
we call religion
too many of my children have died
in the never-ending fight for territory
are we born to violence?
can we stop in time?

they say you were warned to remain on your side
you will be starting a war now if you cross that line
turn around or face my reprisal
for i have determined that this is mine

been hurting for a long time
feeling my heart torn open
from the of lack of humanity
insanity on both sides
picking the path that
guarantees our own extinction
hate added to the stockpile
filling the world with enemies
a constant battle
in the face of violence
they omit their crime

they say you were warned to remain on your side
you will be starting a war now if you cross that line
turn around or face my reprisal
for i have determined that this is mine

you were warned to remain on your side
you’ll be starting a war now if you cross that line
turn around or face my reprisal
for i have determined that this is mine

we will not be broken this time
we will force the whole world to testify
stand your ground or face our reprisal
for we have determined that this is

A classic from a legend...





Quote:MOTORHEAD
"Just 'Cos You Got The Power"

You might be a financial wizard,
With a sack of loot,
All I see is a slimy lizard,
With an expensive suit,
Go on and run your corporation,
Go and kiss some ass,
You might buy half of the nation,
But you can't buy class.

You bastards think it's funny,
Lyin' and thieving all your life,
Think all there is money,
Got your future strapped up tight,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.

You can take my fingers babe,
You can take my eyes,
You can take my past and future,
It won't make you wise,
You can have me thrown in jail,
You can steal my booze,
You can even read my mail,
Step on my blue suede shoes.

You bastards must be clever,
Got it mapped out in black and white,
But don't forget you'll never,
Get a dog to walk upright,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.

Go on out make another deal,
Feed your big fat face,
Go on out and cop a feel,
Get on somebody's case,
You surely would be satisfied,
If you could have it all,
But time ain't on your side,
You're going to the wall.

You think that life's all dollars,
Greed and lust and spite,
But I wasn't born to follow,
Like to get my sleep at night,
Just 'Cos You Got The Power,
That don't mean you got the right.
“Today’s scientists have substituted mathematics for experiments, and they wander off through equation after
equation, and eventually build a structure which has no relation to reality. ” -Nikola Tesla

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace." -Jimi Hendrix
