So, was listening to Pandora

  • And the song “Mother” by Pink Floyd came on. The lyrics kinda sounded just like what the government is trying/doing to us.



    Mother, do you think they'll drop the bomb?

    Mother, do you think they'll like the song?

    Mother, do you think they'll try to break my balls?

    Ooh

    Mother, should I build the wall?

    Mother, should I run for president?

    Mother, should I trust the government?

    Mother, will they put me in the firing line?

    Ooh

    Is it just a waste of time?

    Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry

    Mama's gonna make all of your nightmares come true

    Mama's gonna put all of her fears into you

    Mama's gonna keep you right here under her wing

    She won't let you fly but she might let you sing

    Mama's gonna keep baby cosy and warm

    Ooh baby

    Ooh baby

    Ooh baby, of course mama's gonna help build the wall

    Mother do you think she's good enough?

    For me?

    Mother do you think she's dangerous

    To me?

    Mother will she tear your little boy apart?

    Ooh, ah

    Mother will she break my heart?

    Hush now baby, baby, don't you cry

    Mama's gonna check out all your girlfriends for you

    Mama won't let anyone dirty get through

    Mama's gonna wait up until you get in

    Mama will always find out where you've been

    Mama's gonna keep baby healthy and clean

    Ooh baby, ooh baby

    Ooh baby, you'll always be baby to me

    Mother, did it need to be so high?

  • I don't think Pink Floyd was trying to get a wall built...

    “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it's yours.”

    ―Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

  • The Wall is an absolute masterpiece. Roger Waters may be a moron commie but he's a goddam musical genius.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis

  • "In the Flesh/Run like Hell" predicts the Left's inevitable slide into fascism.

    "The members of Congress know, from their colleagues in Congress, that, uh, you know, the, looks like a tornado, they don't call them that anymore, that hit the crops and wetlands in the middle of the country, in Iowa and Nevada. It's just across the board,"

  • The entire album is creepily relevant after all this time.

  • Rondar, you have to listen to "The Wall" in its entirety to understand the song "Mother".



    Please do it as fast as you can.


    Better yet, watch the whole thing remastered. It's a masterpiece.

  • I think when the album and movie were made traditionalists were portrayed as fascist totalitarians. My how times have changed.


    We don't need no education

    We don't need no thought control

    No dark sarcasm in the classroom

    Teachers leave them kids alone

    Hey! teacher! leave us kids alone!

  • Indeed.


    Amazing how relevant the album is today.
