Favorite Quote:
The vibrations on the air are the breath of God speaking to man's soul. Music is the language of God. We musicians are as close to God as man can be. We hear his voice, we read his lips, we give birth to the children of God, who sing his praise. That's what musicians are.


Take a look around you.
Tell me what you see.
Are the people happy?
Content, comfortable and free?

Take a look around you.
Do you see as I?
How many more must suffer?
How many more men must die?

Take a look around you.
Ignorance is not an excuse.
Do you know how many have suffered
From your ignorant abuse?

Take a look around you,
You pampered, spoiled ditty.
The people are starving,
Show your people some pity!

Take a look around you,
Do you know their bellies ache?
Did you really just say,
Let them eat cake?

Take a look around you,
Your people are calling for revolution
It seems that they want
Nothing more than your retribution.

Take a look around you.
Tell me what you see.
Are your people happy?
Content, comfortable and free?
