Reader’s Digest

Alice is a drag queen, Bowie’s somewhere in between
Other bands are looking mean, me, I’m trying to stay clean
I don’t dig the radio, I hate what the charts pick
Rock and roll may not be dead, but it’s getting sick
All over the world disc jockeys sound the same
And every town I play is like the one from where I came

The Rolling Stones are millionaires, flower children pallbearers
Beatles said All you need is love, and then they broke up
Jimi took an overdose, Janis followed so close
The whole music scene and all the bands are pretty comatose
This time last year, people didn’t wanna hear
They looked at Jesus from afar, this year he’s a superstar

Dear John, who’s more popular now?
I’ve been listening to some of Paul’s records
Sometimes I think he really is dead

It’s 1973, I wonder who we’re gonna see
Who’s in power now? Think I’ll turn on my TV
The man on the news said China’s gonna beat us
We shot all our dreamers, there’s no one left to lead us
We need a solution, we need salvation
Let’s send some people to the moon and gather information

They brought back a big bag of rocks
Only cost thirteen billion. Must be nice rocks

You think it’s such a sad thing when you see a fallen king
Then you find out they’re only princes to begin with

And everybody has to choose whether they will win or lose
Follow God or sing the blues, and who they’re gonna sin with
What a mess the world is in, I wonder who began it
Don’t ask me, I’m only visiting this planet
