    Prophetic lyrics

    Was just working out in Madison, Wisconson where I am here for the Crossfit Games and this song came on.
    Remember for those who can, how wonderful and easy it was in 1988. Reagan was finishing up a good run where Americans were proud, nobody was fucking with us and surviving (Operation Preying Mantis) and steroids were not only not a controlled drug, they were all real, even the counterfeits.

    So if they wrote this then, imagine the anger now.

    Skip the first verse. It’s just used as a lyrical license to tell the story.
    The rest? Wow!

    Queensr˙che-“Revolution Calling” from the album, Operation: Mindcrime

    “For a price I'd do about anything
    Except pull the trigger
    For that I'd need a pretty good cause
    Then I heard of Dr. X
    The man with the cure
    Just watch the television
    Yeah, you'll see there's something going on

    Got no love for politicians
    Or that crazy scene in D.C.
    It's just a power mad town
    But the time is ripe for changes
    There's a growing feeling
    That taking a chance on a new kind of vision is due

    I used to trust the media
    To tell me the truth, tell us the truth
    But now I've seen the payoffs
    Everywhere I look
    Who do you trust when everyone's a crook?

    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling you
    There's a revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Gotta make a change
    Gotta push, gotta push it on through

    Well, I'm tired of all this bullshit
    They keep selling me on T.V.
    About the communist plan
    And all the shady preachers
    Begging for my cash
    Swiss bank accounts while giving their secretaries the slam

    They're all in Penthouse now
    Or Playboy magazine, million dollar stories to tell
    I guess Warhol wasn't wrong
    Fame fifteen minutes long
    Everyone's using everybody, making the sale

    I used to think
    That only America's way, way was right
    But now the holy dollar rules everybody's lives
    Gotta make a million, doesn't matter who dies

    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling you
    There's a revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Gotta make a change
    Gotta push, gotta push it on through

    I used to trust the media
    To tell me the truth, tell us the truth
    But now I've seen the payoffs
    Everywhere I look
    Who do you trust when everyone's a crook?

    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling you
    There's a revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Gotta make a change
    Gotta push, gotta push it on through

    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Revolution calling you
    There's a revolution calling
    Revolution calling
    Gotta make a change
    Gotta push, gotta push it on through

    There's something going on
    There's a revolution, there's a revolution, there's a revolution“


    Fantastic album btw.

    And I was just fucking around about Crossfit. I didn’t bring my spandex and Capri pants.
