Early Afternoon
Outer Richmond, SF

Credits:
Eric Kuhn played guitar, kick drum and hi hat. Michael Musika played guitar, sang, and framed the shot.

Notes:
To act like an animal meaning to do what is necessary to preserve one's life and allow oneself to thrive, regardless of artificial human constructs like government, bureaucracy, paperwork, money, permits, signs, etc. The wisdom in seeing one self as an animal (a human being) has nothing to do with violence/non-violence, but rather having the bravura to respect Life Itself more than the intellectual concepts we use as a convenient organizing tool (which are all too easily corrupted). -Eric Kuhn

Lyrics:
in the churches and the circus
where the workers purchase worthless
paperwork to justify the property they purchased
I stood up at the pulpit like a shirtless mermaid versus
Listen up lovely little ones we're taking over this service

i didn't care about government schemes
until i got evil spirit dreams
dub c society trying to find me
and this is the help police provided me:
down on your knees, give us id,
your job is bleed and plead mercy
with cattle prods it's easy to see
who is the man and who is the beast

we are all animals/ people are animals
children it has always been this /way
we are all animals / let's act like animals
when the people come / to take our home /away

You only are what you eat
if you don’t have a superego
lots of people eat like sea gulls
only heathens eat other people
in the bible they eat sheep though
even though it’s really illegal
speak no evil, hear no evil
go once a week to a steeple

heretic, heretic he is a heretic,
we can't be heretics we are just farmers
we want a government who won't disarm us,
jesus is lord stop with your dharmas

but only one seed will grow where your barn is
Jesus believes he told Charles Darwin

monkeys can't write in cuneiform,
money can't make the monkeys perform
for money to monkeys is magic to mormons
and money is putting a hex on your corn
so if you grow corn or if you eat corn
or if you were born this market is cornered
you better wake up and conform every morning
or they'll put you in cages until you act normal

we are all animals/ people are animals
children it has always been this /way
we are all animals / let's act like animals
when the people come / to take our home /away

one third of myself is 100 percent
of the part of myself I should spend on the rent
and I told you I dreamed that my money was spent
at first I was scared and acted all hesitant

then something deep in my being took precedence
answered the threats of every dead president
neighbors are blaming the presence of immigrants
everyone's immigrants, who isn't an immigrant

Oh good it's him again, die for my sins again
i'll be huck finn again you can be Jim again
curse about Mexicans praise Jackie Robinson
free him he's innocent, make him a citizen!

End all this venom the ending is imminent
isn't it officer I'm a civilian how many guillotines
will we be building for capitol hillbillies
murdering child - er - en

You took my love and made a commodity
Everyone's holy my holy commodity
Isn't it odd to be sold as an oddity
Do i feel holy? oh lordy I go to be

ashes to ashes and dust to dust
you better just kill us forget about cuffs
Salvation's not something that animals trust
we'll drink your blood and that is enough!

we are all animals/ people are animals
children it has always been this /way
we are all animals / let's act like animals
when the people come / to take our home /away
