enjoy the genius that is…

the flight of the conchords…

you can read the lyrics on the next page

here are the lyrics to the song…

Think about it

There’s children on the street using guns and knives
Taking drugs and each other’s lives
Killing each other with knives and forks
Calling each other names like ‘dork’
There’s people on the street getting diseases from monkeys
Yeah, that’s what I said – they’re getting diseases from monkeys
Now there’s junkies with monkey disease
Who’s touching these monkeys, please
Leave these poor sick monkeys alone
They’ve got problems enough as it is.
Man’s lying on the street
Some punk’s chopped off his head
I’m the only one who stops
To see if he’s dead
Mmm…
Turns out he’s dead.
And that’s why I’m singing
What…what is wrong with the world today?
What is wrong with the world today?
(Jemaine mumbles)
What…what is wrong with the world today?
You gotta think about it
Think think about it.
Good cops been framed and put into a can.
All the money that we’re making is going to the man.
What man?
Which man?
Who’s the man?
When’s a man a man?
What makes a man a man?
Am I a man?
Yes. Technically I am.
They’re turning kids into slaves just to make cheaper sneakers.
But hat’s the real cost?
‘Cause the sneakers don’t seem that much cheaper.
Why are we still paying so much for sneakers
When you got them made by little slave kids
What are your overheads?
Well, at the end of your life, you’re lucky if die,
Sometimes I wonder why we even try.
I saw a man lying on the street half dead
With knives and forks sticking out of his leg.
And he said,
“Ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow
Can somebody get that knife and fork out of my leg, please?
Can somebody please remove these cutleries from my knees?”
And then we break it down.
This is where we break it down
Ooh
This is where we break it down
Aah
This is where we do the whoa-o-o-o
Break it down
This is where we build it up now
We build it up now
We build it up now
We build it up now
We build it up now
Build it up
And then we stop

    “genius” in the dictionary sense is a convoluted term sometimes used to refer to demon agents of change?

    Now considering the conditions described in the lyrics should we be curbing our freedoms to save us from the terrorists?
    Or are back yard pools and peanuts more dangerous.

    Patriot Act:1776 “Give me Liberty or Give me death!”

    Patriot Act: 2006 “give up yur libertae or we’re all gonna die!”

    not to mention the ever popular “they hate us for our freedoms”

    Mthope,

    Patriot Act:1776 “Give me Liberty or Give me death!”

    Patriot Act: 2006 “give up yur libertae or we’re all gonna die!”

    Can I quote those lines? I’ll credit you as Mthope (2007)
    something like:

    Patriot Act:1776 “Give me Liberty or Give me death!”
    Patriot Act: 2006 “give up yur libertae or we’re all gonna die!”
    -Mthope (2007)

    Hey Dave! I heard something on the radio about a “special” Sunday night (29 Jul 07) involving the conchords! Sorry I don’t have any more details but hopefully we can find out more.

    And Tech…same ol junk about the Patriot Act. No one (and I’ve asked a LOT of people) has been able to identify even ONE lost freedom from the Patriot Act. Can you?

    Also, in a simplified way, it IS our freedom they hate.

    I scarfed that line from a cartoon that was not attributed
    or copywrited as far as I know.
    so, quote if you want, all I changed was the spelling of libertae.

    To dhunley the patriot act just formalised or made public what
    was/has been going on for decades.

    Every phone microphone can be potentially live cellphone or not
    on the hook or not. So the stupor computers could be listening and profiling you right now, dont that make you feeeeel safe?

    The Patriots Day verses Patriot Day paradyme shift is another
    “on notice” indicator.

    Patriot day, April 19 vs Sept. 11 Patiot’s day.

    Ames strain antrax anyone?
    Howz about a little bentonite antistatic coating mmmmmm

    Now vote the way we want o.k.?
    Cause you know what happened to that reporter Gary Webb after expose’ of CIA involvement in drug smuggling. For this he was pilloried and run out of the corporate media. His life ended in a tragic “suicide” (shot himself twice no less, in the head with a shotgun?)”

    Not to mention the “book slap” that helped
    put Hunter Thomson out of our misery.
    not that he was any hero of mine, I would have
    liked to read some of the 911 stuff he was working
    on when as his son puts it he hears what he thot
    was a book slap the floor as if dropped. (silencer?)

    Mossaad “targeted killing”? Keep in mind the FBI
    on the record to a UPI reporter said “thats a policy
    matter” . . . “we only enforce federal law”
    on the matter of allies like israel announcing to carry out
    assasinations in the states in the “war on terror”.
