youth awakes from the dead
shakes off the leaves
brushes off the dirt
the light of joy has ignited in the eyes
and the dancing starts
‘cause love is real and not fade away, yo
bringing the swingin’ sixties into the mid teens
is perfect, don’t ya’ think?
think about it, ‘cause it’s yo’ thing, man
I say revive the breakaway
the break from stodgy zombie school
farming minds out to tend well the bullshit
“farm out” took on a new meaning, didn’t it, bro?
as the fucking great music took over
there was every good reason to be high
the generations don’t matter
love and spirits do
we walked outside and welcomed immortality
something stirred from misplaced dreams
we rehabbed the artist
and were as children eternal
now decades later we revive freedom!
with younger generations all on board
they feel it and we feel them
youth and wonder rule
brotherhood, philosophy, spirituality, art
as we celebrate the music masters
Stevie, Dylan, Beatles, Stones
Cream, Zeppelin, CSNY,
Joni, Jimi, Janis, Doors, Sweet Baby James
music of the gods
hail hail rock and roll
poetry harmony color galore
so get naked if you want
swear like a sailor, go hug strangers
we’re all on the same wild ride
we can remember
we can live, y’all!
we can BE here now
