I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts Lyrics

The facts we hate: The facts we'll never meet.
walking down the road. Everybody yelling
"hurry up!" "hurry up!" But I'm waiting
for you, I must go slow. I must not
think bad thoughts. When is this
world coming to? Both sides are
right but both sides murder. I
give up; why can't they? I must
not think bad thoughts. The civil
wars and the uncivilized wars.
conflagrations leap out of every
poor furnace. The food cooks
poorly and everyone goes hungry.
from then on it's dog eat dog, dog
eat body, & body eat dog. I can't
go down there. I can't understand it.
I'm a no good coward & an American too.
a north American, that is not a south
or a central. Or a native American.
Or an alien American.
oh i must not think bad thoughts. I'm
guilty of murder of innocent men,
innocent women, innocent children,
thousands of them! My planes, my guns,
my money, my soldiers, my blood on ny
hands, it's all my fault! I must not
think bad thoughts. I must not think
bad thoughts. The facts we hate:
you'll never hear us.
"I hear the radio is finally gonna
play new music, you know, the
British invasion." But what about
The Minutemen, Flesh Eaters, DOA,
Big Boys. And XXX Black Flag? Will
XXX last American band to get played
on the radio please bring XXX flag?
please bring XXX flag! Glitter-disco-
synthesizer night school. All this
noble savage drum, drum, drum.
astronauts going back in time to hang
out with XXX cave people. It's about
time, it's about space. It's about
some people in the strangest place.
Woody Guthrie sang about b-e-e-t-s
not b-e-a-t-s. I must not think
bad thoughts, I must not think
bad thoughts, the facts we hate.

This is a song about living in the US and being responsible for poverty war and death. Those calling attention to this issue (like the punk bands listed) are absent from popular media; because the status can only be maintained with our consent. Worse yet, this ignorance is somewhat voluntary.

How does one deal with being a member of a flawed society and an often brutal, vain, and ignorant human race.
