This Guy

You believe this guy?

I know.That was scary. I never seen that many people in Central Park before. You?

No. Unreal. He’s like a damn cult hero. Play the video. I want to watch it again.

Ev’rybody’s talking about
Revolution, evolution, masturbation,
Flagellation, regulation, integrations,
Meditations, United Nations,

So what the fuck is that? You know what he’s even talking about?

Beats me. Go to the next part.

Ev’rybody’s talking about Ministers,
Sinisters, Banisters and canisters
Bishops and Fishops and Rabbis and Pop eyes,
And bye bye, bye byes.

I don’t get it. The words don’t even make sense.
I can’t even hear them good either; just the peace part.

The kids are eating it up though.

But it’s not just the kids. That’s the problem. It’s everybody. The guy’s got a big following – because of his music – people all over the world. He’s like some kind of fucking Pied Piper.

Yeah, I never really even liked his music that much. Not since he went hippie anyway.
Come on – play the rest.

Ev’rybody’s talking about
Bagism, Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism
This-ism, that-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m.

You get it? What’s he trying to say?

I don’t know. It’s like some kind a bullshit code.Doesn’t make any sense. But that’s not even the bad part. It’s the peace part. Play that, where everyone’s chanting.

All we are saying is give peace a chance.
All we are saying is give peace a chance.

That’s it. One line. You see what’s happening, right? It’s a courage thing. Like the people found it; he’s leading ‘em, giving a voice they didn’t even know they had. When people start chanting together like that, that’s not good.

You’re right. Here’s the rest of it.

Ev’rybody’s talking about
John and Yoko, Timmy Leary, Rosemary,
Tommy Smothers, Bobby Dylan, Tommy Cooper,
Derek Taylor, Norman Mailer,
Alan Ginsberg, Hare Krishna,
Hare, Hare Krishna
All we are saying is give peace a chance.
All we are saying is give peace a chance.

Look at that crowd? Must a been a half a million of ‘em. All ages. Waving candles and singing along. They love ‘em – really listening, like thinking together.

I know. But they don’t allow that. You know how they roll. Have to keep everyone separate and fighting wars and shit. That’s how they control things. It was one thing when this guy was just selling records, or making out with that slant eye- getting all naked and shit. But now he’s hit some nerve with the people. And everyone knows him- all over the world. No telling where this could go. Doesn’t matter. They’re not gonna let him go around singing that shit for long. When someone comes along and rocks the boat like this guy; raising thoughts getting in peoples’ heads-teaching them – problems start. Bad situation. They get ‘em.

Yeah, once people stop acting like sheep and doing what they want, thinking like they’ve been trained, it’s over. They’re not gonna let things get out of hand. They’ll shut him up before it gets worse. Just like the Kennedys and King. And plenty more before them – all the way back.

No shit. I already got the call.

Oh yeah, what’d they say?

Take care of it. And gave me a number to call.
Said they got this guy.
