    coming of age during the plague
    of reagan and bush
    watching capitalism gun down democracy
    it had this funny effect on me
    i guess

    i am cancer
    i am HIV
    and i am down at the blue jesus
    blue cross hospital
    just lookin' up from my pillow
    feeling blessed

    and the mighty multinationals
    have monopolized the oxygen
    so it's as easy as breathing
    for us all to participate

    yes they're buying and selling
    off shares of air
    and you know it's all around you
    but it's hard to point and say "there"
    so you just sit on your hands
    and quietly contemplate

    your next bold move
    the next thing you're gonna have to prove
    to yourself

    what a waste of thumbs that are opposable
    to make machines that are disposable
    and sell them to seagulls flying in circles
    around one big right wing

    yes, the left wing was broken long ago
    by the slingshot of cointelpro
    and now it's so hard to have faith in

    especially your next bold move
    or the next thing you're gonna need to prove
    to yourself

    you want to track each trickle
    back to its source
    and then scream up the faucet
    'til your face is hoarse
    cuz you're surrounded by a world's worth
    of things you just can't excuse

    but you've got the hard cough of a chain smoker
    and you're at the arctic circle playing strip poker
    and it's getting colder and colder
    everytime you lose

    so go ahead
    make your next bold move
    tell us
    what's the next thing you're gonna have to prove
    to yourself
