Eyes: Words and Music by Phil Wikel and The Julian Day
I want to spend a day in your eyes,
seek shelter from my lies
safe refuge from the wise,
I want to spend a day
in your eyes.
Out on the landscape of my life
there resides a burdening darkness
such a lonely
such a lonely
empty stripped-down starkness
In your eyes I can dream
dream that I might harness
through dreams and schemes and unplanned themes
harness a corner on love.
“If you’re not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing.”
– Malcolm X
Some things never change.
Here’s a great speech set to music:
“Malcolm X & the Plymouth Myth” by the julian day
Yes, sadly, I think it’s safe to say the CIA got him too.
And just a note about Syria:
My grandfather was a boxer and settled his scores in the ring. I think it’s time that world leaders put on some gloves and settled their own scores in the ring instead of sending young kids to die because they’re too dysfunctional to work out their differences. Before we get caught up in the media propaganda, we need to take a step back and ask ourselves: Is it worth it? And who profits from war? The answers are first: no, and secondly: No one but the Military Industrial Establishment; arms dealers, war-mongers and the certifiably insane.
Find a hobby guys and stop playing with the lives of others. There’a a beautiful world out there full of opportunities to enjoy life, instead of ending it.
The only thing wrong with this movie is that it doesn’t tell you that this is an everyday affair at the White House. Screenwriters, set directors, the whole nine…

1. Acceptable levels of homelessness
2. Acceptable levels of poison in our food.
3. Acceptable levels of drug abuse
4. Acceptable levels of crime
5. Acceptable levels of mental illness
6. Acceptable levels of pollution
7. Acceptable levels of toxins in our drinking water
8. Acceptable levels of violence
9. Acceptable levels of prisoners incarcerated in our jails
10. Acceptable levels of child abuse
11. Acceptable levels of alcohol abuse
The list goes on and on and what it says about our government’s standards is that “This is what we consider the cost of doing business. Because, let’s face it, The United States is merely a large corporation designed to cater to only those who can afford to avoid these “acceptable levels” for everything. As long as it “isn’t in my backyard, screw that unfortunate scum who can’t afford to improve their lives.”
Our economy and economic stratification is such that all of these things are “Ok” with the powers-that-be. And spending money on damage control to protect these levels when they fear you’re getting wise to them is a better solution than just doing the right thing. The 78 Billion a year spent on the CIA is a testament to that since the CIA is nothing more than a hired gun to protect corporate interests and maintain control of the populace. Things don’t and won’t change unless it’s good for business.
We shouldn’t waste our time on statistics and all other other minutiae they love to throw at us to keep us confused, fearful and argumentative. These statistics and white noise are just a puppet show to keep us from seeing what’s really going on behind the scenes.
It’s not that we don’t live in a “perfect world,” it’s just that it’s THEIR “perfect world,” not OURS.
The Second Bill of Rights was a list of rights proposed by Franklin D. Roosevelt during his State of the Union Address on January 11, 1944. In his address Roosevelt suggested that the nation had come to recognize, and should now implement, a second “bill of rights“. Roosevelt’s argument was that the “political rights” guaranteed by the constitution and the Bill of Rights had “proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness.” Roosevelt’s remedy was to declare an “economic bill of rights” which would guarantee:
- Employment, with a living wage
- Freedom from unfair competition and monopolies
- Medical care
- Social security
