Song Meanings: “The Pretender” by Foo Fighters

Powerful motivational song to stand up to the liars; though, Dave Grohl seems to have swallowed some of their lies; is being used to help promote the deep state’s tyranny: RNA vaccine mandates, ‘save the planet’ tyranny.


“The Pretender” reveals the activities of people in authority who in a bid to stay in power use all forms of lies and pretense to control the beliefs and emotions of citizens. The speaker explains that these Pretenders, due to their thirst for power make sure that they keep their followers in the dark so they can continually control them.

As the narrator reveals the destruction these bad people cause by keeping most people stuck, he distinguishes himself by stating that he will no longer be controlled by them. In the chorus, the writer further presents himself as a person who is willing to speak against them, expose them and fight for change while doing what is right. Despite the fact that these pretenders in authority may have not faced any opposition for a long time, he is ready to challenge them. And in doing so, he will reveal their deceptive secrets and start a revolution which will open the eyes of the majority. (source)

Rick Beato: Why JEFF BECK is UNCOPYABLE

I TOTALLY agree with what Rick says here. I heard a song on the radio a few days ago, and immediately knew it was Jeff Beck on guitar. Rick is a master at explaining the technical, but doesn’t talk about the heart, where this comes from, and then the technical makes it possible.

Beck is now 78. And I don’t know what’s going on with his heart spiritually, but what comes out of him is often amazing.

How in the world do people actually claim that any of us just happened by chance, created by no one?

Start at minute-2:45, if you’re pressed for time.

 

Van Morrison – Where Have All The Rebels Gone? — “Were they really all that tough? Or was it just a PR stunt?”

Where have all the rebels gone?
Hiding behind computer screens
Where’s the spirit, where’s the soul?
Where have all the rebels gone?

Why don’t they come out of the woodwork now?
One for the money, two for the show
It’s not very rock and roll
Where have all the rebels gone?

Where have all the rebels gone?
Waiting for someone else to make a move
Why are they sitting on the fence?
Well, it’s some kind of pretence
They’re not saying much at all
Where have all the rebels gone?

Were they really all that tough?
Or was it just a PR stunt?
One for the money, two for the show
Where have all the rebels gone?

“This Just In” by Five Times August

This just in
Another liar on the news
Standing at the pulpit
Ready to abuse

This just in
Another coward in control
Scared by the sounds
So he hides in a hole

He’ll call on the guards
To trample the crowd
‘Cause the louder they get
They silence his power

Shame, blame, no matter what they say
Don’t let the bastard get to you
He’s going to try to shut us down
But we’ll stand our ground
Hey, this just in, he’ll lose

This just in
Another villain on the screen
Acting like a hero
For all the drama queens

This just in
Another black painted face
Lathered in his virtue
Enslaving every race

He’ll send out the troops
And freeze the accounts
Says the freedom you get
Is what he makes allowed

Shame, blame, no matter what they say
Don’t let the bastard get to you
He’s going to try to shut us down
But we’ll stand our ground
Hey, this just in, he’ll lose

If you look in his eyes
You can see he’s afraid
So fragile inside
While the town’s on parade

Shame, blame, no matter what they say
Don’t let the bastard get to you
He’s going to try to shut us down
But we’ll stand our ground
Hey, this just in, he’ll lose

No he’ll never shut us down
‘Cause we’ll stand our ground
Hey, this just in, you lose

“Anti-Fascist Blues” by Five Times August | Lyric Video 2022

Lots of truth here; so accurate!

Deep lyrics go by so fast. May help to slow it down to .75x speed; or an amazing read!

I put in quotes: ‘stop all the hate.’

– –

Everybody head down, pick yourself a pronoun
Join the resistance on government assistance
‘Stop all the hate’ as you advocate violence
Block and suppress anyone you want silenced
Take what you want ‘cause what you want is what you’re owed
Call everyone a fascist ’til they’re all controlled

Preach in the street for the communist party
Pro choice, no voice, never mind the heart beat
Dictate, race bait, agitate, mandate
Dress in drag and burn the flag then run to find a safe space
Tell us how you feel until we give you what you need
Call everyone oppressive ’til they’re on their knees

Impeach free speech, better dye your hair pink
TV, phone screen, it’s better if you don’t think
Debt to university, segregate diversity
Give yourself a ribbon every time you face adversity
Find another problem, tell yourself you’re not alone
Tell everyone who’s straight that they’re all transphobe

Defund police. No guns, oh please
Fight for your right to start a war until there’s no peace
Take it down, tear it up, it’s in the name of progress
Make the rule you never lose ’til everything is lawless
Tell me what to think, and how to feel, and where to go
‘Cause everyone’s a fascist ’til they’re all controlled

Find your path in life but make it socio or psycho
Nonsense, wokeness, you’re gonna lose your mind though
Bigotry, insanity, an ally, or an enemy
There’s too much masculinity so wave goodbye to family
Represent the one percent who want to overthrow
’Til everybody lives to an autonomous zone

Act tough, steel stuff, smash another window
Loot store, get more, grab another brick, throw
She/Her/He/Him/They/Them/Xe/Xem
Women are the men now and the men are now the women
Make yourself a slave until you feel like you are free
Dig yourself a grave for The American Dream

Neil Young’s “The Needle and the Damage Done” performed by Five Times August

I’ve seen the needle and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie’s like a settin’ sun

Ooh, ooh, the damage done …
I watched the needle take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done
