Others Step in When Songster Goes Silent

My roomate has a show next week but what my roomate doesn't have is a voice. Therefore, my roomate has a dilemma.

As a creative individual he's decided to get some sidekicks to form a small choir and sing for him. I thought that was a neat idea. We'll see how it turns out on stage next Thursday at the Ebar, in Guelph. In the meantime, I've gotten his permission to publish one of his song lyrics.

"Hide and go seek

terrorism's good at hiding
we're really good at finding it
little game of hide and go seek
never hurt anybody

terrorism's easy to define
terrorism’s easy to define
anyone who hates the homeland

force us focus on your anti-christ
chasing wild geese so we divert our eyes
what will you do while we count to ten
how many more of us will have seen your face by then

when all the guns are gone
when all the wars are fought and won
when all the nukes are none
when there's nothing left to rebuild on

when all the guns are gone x4

force us focus on your anti-christ
chasing wild geese so we divert our eyes
what will you do while we count to ten
how many more of us will have seen your face by then"
-Richard Laviolette

Quasar -Yes, this song appears to be begging the question of how we are (not) defeating terrorism in the current strategy and hinting at how ridiculous it is.
