"Like a Soldier" by Live (V, 2001)

Flipping On the Off: Digital Art by Shawn Michel de Montaigne





Like a Soldier

Live



~~*~~



I just come down from the mountain

A happy man

Turned on the television

should've chewed off my hand


I'm sick of all the false glory

"In God we trust"

Show me one dollar bill that

hasn't passed through the cusp


And if you break my will

I will come back again

To destroy everything you stood for


I will go on

Like a soldier through the storms of love

And I take you back,

Take you away from here

My friend

And charge you up again


We just come down from the mountain

Where the breezes were blowin'

And everything was growin'

Like some tree in the bush


Still I gotta live my life here

With some pretty scary brethren

But now I'm a rebel on a mission baby

To live and die by my smile


And if you break my will

I will come back again

To destroy everything you stood for


I will go on

Like a soldier through the storms of love

And I take you back

Take you away from here

My friend

And charge you up again

Charge you up again

Charge you up again, yeah


Let's go to Ray's, not to Pizza Hut

Let's go to the pig, not to Starbucks

Let's vote for Nader, what're we waitin' for?

I'm gonna live to be a hundred and sixty-four

To the crib then back to the studio

To write a song so good

Make a midget grow

From the north pole, down to Mexico

If you don't know the words, fuck it!

Let's go!


I will go on

Like a soldier through the storms of love

And I take you back

Take you away from here

My friend

And charge you up again

Charge you up again

Charge you up again!

More Live will eventually appear on this playlist.

They were a quirky group,

one claimed by both the left and the right,

with this song not helping that fight at all.

I can't quite grok the message in it;

I just know I like it a great deal.


I think both the left and the right

need to stop their incessant culture wars

and just ... you know ... chill the fuck out.

Let shit be.


Yeah. Right. Like that's ever going to happen.
