The Lyrics

The inspiration for this reworking of The Association's 1968 hit came by way of an "Engrish" label on Xianfeng brand facial tissue (from China, BTW) as proclaims "Paradise & Hell Are In You." (You can see it for yourself here if you don't believe me on this one.)
It's reaching that moment when you start to realise
What destiny may have in store
For Our Dear Lovely United States,
Notwithstanding the Fox News mindset;
Perhaps it's time
That you realised
That paradise
And hell are in you....

The final battle for our identity,
National and sovereign as well,
Could too easily be exploited by the weird and unwholesome,
So choose of your side carefully,
Especially when
You realise
That paradise
And hell are in you....

Whose side, pray, are you on?
Who, pray, do you represent?
The forces of compacency
Or those of the progressive?
Hell....
Hell....
Hell....
Paradise and hell....

Though the pitchfork brigades who wave the Gadsden Flag
Fear resistance from the "jackbooted thugs,"
It's time that we ask ourselves "whose side are YOU on?!"
For tomorrow may be too late
For you and I
To recognise
That paradise
And hell are in you....

Hell...
Hell--
Hell...
Hell--
Paradise and hell....
Have you seen the blog "too cool and beautiful to develop and motivate, build up character"--otherwise known as The Blog That Am!? (Be sure also to consider the online mall there; part of the proceeds therefrom going to help in reduction of the American National Debt.)

Richard Gere once had a pair o' dice in him. He sent a hamster in to retrieve 'em.
