In the Land of the Blind Lyrics

Submitted by level 록스타 (2017-04-11)
1. Colossus
The last years of your life slipped by
‘Till you stop and wonder where the time has
fly before you sigh goodbye
Call the president to listen to the diatribe
....And he says “I don’t have an alibi.”
Vote for him or for the other it’s the same-why?
Any motherfucker alive can tell a lie.

With sight in one eye
They know the King on high
In the Land of the Blind

There’s something inside all the water that we drink
Even if you think or don’t think
that the shots are called and fired
By the Kikes and Chinks
Killing us with Poverty, Pornography, and Sodomy,
the thought of me
Giving way my power for the fuckin’ chance
to punch in by the hour.

Home, Land of the Free
Across the sea
The masses pour, forever more to me.

Let us try to pretend you got the
balls that morals disallow
Follow me then and you can
stand up there and shake his hand and take a bow
We could do him in then,
just like a sacrifice I’ll show you how
Take a chance trust me I can show you how to start
a fuckin’ revolution there when - Now!

Now, I’ve got your attention I’ve gotta say
that I’m a little bit pissed off today
How, no one gets anywhere with all the checks
and the bands of red tape in their way
We’ll meet just this one last time
Feel street justice, know that I’m
Assassin

Home, Land of the Free
Across the sea
The masses pour, forever more to me.

Home, Land of the Free
Across the sea
The masses pour, forever more to me.

Home, Land of the Free
Across the sea
The masses pour, to me.

No laws, not a grace for me, no liberty.
No laws, not a grace for me, no liberty.
No laws, not a grace for me, no liberty.
No laws, not a grace for me, no liberty.
No Laws.
2. A Night at the Theatre
My name is Booth, “John Wilkes Booth!”
they all call.
Where is my home Dixieland that will fall?
They will all call it murder.
They cannot see it from our side.

Brutus finished Caesar as a tyrant
and he killed him in the capital.
And I did it in the theatre,
he was watching while my way of life
was dying!
I am trying for my home!
For the land I love, the brave
and proud South, land of cotton.
The evenings we were singing,
“O My home Dixieland!”

Ever will this nation suffer, union falter,
It can’t recover from this martyr,
the sacrifice upon the altar
of nigger-love!
Now through the night they
despair hunting me.
Dogs howl for blood to lament tyranny.
They still all cry out murder.
They cannot see it from my side.

Call me bloody traitor,
or a madman - I rebuke it
as I spit upon your union,
and the bastards celebrating
while my way of life is shattered.
Does nothing matter for my home?
For the land I love, the
brave and proud South, land of cotton.
The evenings we were singing,
“O My home Dixieland!”

Ever will this nation suffer, union falter,
It can’t recover from this martyr,
the sacrifice upon the altar
of Lincoln.

Now I’m waiting in this warehouse
they are coming and I’m proud
that I am dying...
3. Closer My God to Thee
My name is Charles Guiteau
this is my personal
victory rhapsody.
Here before God I stand
martyred by my own land
infamy, dignity

Now that I know
I am going to my Lord
with Him I’ll live out my destiny
and I will be remembered forever

I fired the bullet
the surgeons won’t pull it out
on the bed, now he’s dead
They say I killed the man
I followed Jesus’ plan
I’m a priest -should be released

Now I can see
it was you instead of me
if I am guilty then so is God
He won’t be judged by men
neither will I

Now that I know
I am going to my Lord
with Him I’ll live out my destiny
and I will be remembered forevermore

My name is Charles Guiteau
this is my personal
victory rhapsody.
Here before God I stand
martyred by my own land
infamy, dignity

Now that I know
I am going to my Lord
with Him I’ll live out my destiny
and I will be remembered for ever

My name is Charles Guiteau
This is my rhapsody
This is my personal victory
And I will be remembered forever
4. Enemy of the People
Enemy of the People
(Lyrics by Jesse White)
A message from Leon: I am the one.
(A message from Leon)
Here in the eye of the sun.
My name is Czolgolz, I’m gonna kill the president.
My message is simple, it is the one
Pressed in the mouth of a gun .32 calibre Iver-Johnson automatic.
The work of men built this land
A gun can change this with just one hand.
I’m waiting in a line -
so many people start to die
before they even try for a life they want, and I wonder why
it isn’t you or I
standing shaking hands and smiling
in this line…
A message from Leon to have in mind
(A message from Leon)
Built for the Land of the Blind.
My name is Czolgolz, I’m gonna kill the president.
The message is simple that we will find
(the message is simple)
here at the head of the line.
We all get a chance there,
it might be just a step away
Thoughts can change into plans
I will kill a single man, one man…
5. Presidents and Kings
I am Guiseppe Zangara
This is my story I will tell you
that I am an immigrant
that I work in a ditch and live in torment.
I lived in Italia
But I come U.S.A to change my living.

I have the stomach pains,
I am sick, there is something in me rotten.
But they not listening
they no look, they no pay attention to me!
Pain it fill my day so I cannot breathe!
Pain from the rot that is in me!

First it’s pain that bring anger and madness
to mind and thinking plans I done,
then it’s way that the rich ignoring
a man who has none!
I blaming
this-a-government
says that Depression is to end, it will!
They are make-a-the plans that bringing
Depression and ill!

They call me anarchist
call me Left, call me Right I will defy this!
I kill the president
he is first, then next all the capitalists!
Send me to chair, I no afraid!
Viva Italia per sempre!

Go to Hell out of here, I go
sit down on chair all by myself
Death to rich and to king,
I curse all your selfish and wealth!

Farewell poor!
People everywhere struggling,
you remember this
I no care-a- to die,
you pull-a the switch!
6. Pandora's Box
My name is Samuel Byck. (My name is Samuel Byck)
You do not know me yet.
But, I know that if we'd had a chance to meet we could have been close friends
I would like to tell you some of my thoughts
You might be surprised at this -
I'm not a musicologist, or I'm not even a college graduate
I'm a businessman
with a very solid plan
But the corporate world doesn't care for the little person any more
But you understand me Mister Bernstein
I think that we both know that there is too much hatred in America
There's hatred between the races, there's hatred between the classes,
Why is it like this?
I don't know if you realized this when I introduced myself
my name is Byck.. B-Y-C-K
I think that you and I could have been close friends
because we both culturally know what oppression is
You are a very fine conductor, but I would like you to hear that
its your own music that made me respect you so much
You understand people, Mister Bernstein
you understand what people need
you and I know that the Unites States has been ruined
we have to change things, Mister Bernstein
I have to drop a 747 on the White House to assassinate President Nixon
You will hear about it, then you can see my face on the news
But before that I have one question for you
What kind of a world is this, where a decent, hardworking man like Sam Byck has to crash a plane into the President to make a point?
Can you answer me that, Mister Bernstein?

(I have to drop a 747 on the white house to assassinate President Nixon)
7. A Thousand Days
Has the truth of it slipped all away
what was his name what did he say?
When you looked at my face did you see
someone to blame - did you see me?
There, there in the light
hid in the dark standing in sight
I gunman alone, part of a group
all on my own...

Who plans for 1000 ways?
What ends with a scream?
Who rules for 1000 days?
What dies with a dream?

Here, here in the dark
shown by the glow lit by the spark
they, the men of the state
rejected by all to isolate.

What lasts for 1000 days?
Who lives for a dream?
What looks for 1000 ways?
Who dies with a scream?

Wasn’t he caught with a gun, wasn’t he?
Wasn’t he CIA or KGB?
Didn’t he marry a ‘Red’, didn’t he?
Didn’t he know she was still a commie?

Say when I misspoke-
“the fall of Saigon” or “I drank one Coke”?
Why am I to blame?
The mob and the state are one and the same.

And I lose control once more!
Knock Marina on the floor
And I lose control again!
This Mannlicher Carcano stands my only friend.

And I lose control once more!
Knock Marina on the floor
And I lose control again!
This Mannlicher Carcano stands my only friend.

Wasn’t I in the Marines -wasn’t I?
Wasn’t I born in the Land of the Free?

Say when you misspoke-
That I made that shot, or was that a joke?
Why do you all stare, and whisper and nod,
as if I’m not there?

And I lose control once more!
Knock this country on the floor
And I lose control again!
This Mannlicher Carcano stands my only friend.

And I lose control once more!
Throw this country on the floor
And I lose control again!
This nation’s lies and gods defend!
So it ends...
Life pretends…
8. Ballad of an Outlaw
John Hinckley is my name
I have a lust in my life.
Well I find half my mind
split between darkness and light.

Where she will go I will go.
What she will do I will know.

She makes me do things I want,
but they’re things I should not.
She knows my feelings
and twists out the blood in my thoughts.

What do you want me to do?
Anything you want me to! Jodie!

John Hinckley is my name
I have a plan don’t you see?
Well I know I’m far below this queen
that towers high over me.

Where she will go I will go.
What she will do I will know.

Throw off this mask of morality
leave it behind, crash through the
thorns and the branches
inside of my mind.

Something that stirs in my life
opens its jaws and its eyes
setting ambition released
now the beast arrives.

Where she will go I will go,
what she will do I will know.
