Lyrics

- SAMPLE -Howard Beale: “This is not a psychotic episode. This is a cleansing moment of clarity. I'm imbued, Max. I'm imbued with some special spirit. It's not a religious feeling at all. It's a shocking eruption of great electrical energy. I feel vivid and flashing, as if suddenly I'd been plugged into some great electromagnetic field. I feel connected to all living things. To flowers, birds, all the animals of the world. And even to some great, unseen, living force. What I think the Hindus call prana. But it's not a breakdown. I've never felt more orderly in my life. It is a shattering and beautiful sensation. It is the exalted flow of the space-time continuum, save that it is spaceless and timeless and... of such loveliness. I feel on the verge of some great, ultimate truth.”- VERSE -This one goes out to Howard Beale, may he rest in peace/he never lived, he never died, but he reflects in me/and he reflects in all of y’all most definitely/you’re feeling vivid and flashing with Howard’s energy/feel the clash of this titan, you’ve upset the beast/release the Kraken, I might just disconnect the leash/talking straight from the heart - that’s my specialty/you wanna holler? all u gotta do is message me/I know you’re sick of the lies, I know you’re sick of the fear/all this misinformation that’s getting in to your ears/you had hope for some change and now it’s been a few years/and just look how far we’ve come, and now you’re giving up here?/you’re fed up, I’m fed up - but we got work to do still/you’ve got the power to destroy, but I encourage you build/spread information through the matrix, feed your brains/and then get up off your ass so we can see some change/going back, going back, going back to schoolcuz the reality of you is you don’t have a cluegoing back, going back, going back to schoolcuz the reality of you is you don’t have a clue- VERSE -This one goes out to Howard Beale, this one goes out to you/you’re mad as hell, wishing you strength so you can power through/wish we could take this sick culture and somehow erase it/screaming “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it!”/This one goes out to refugees just trying to survive/who want a regular life like yours or kinda like mine/crossing six thousand miles not knowing if they’ll make it/screaming “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it!”/This one goes out to all the kids who still hungry tonight/Poppa can’t find a job and now money is tight/it’s either starve or steal groceries and make an escape quick/he’s mad as hell and he’s not gonna take it!/This one goes out to everybody still glued to the tube/they’re trying to take away your brain, get back to doing what you do/and say no more to these machine men, break out the matrix/and scream “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it!”/- END SAMPLE -Howard Beale: “And you will not take me off the air for now or for any other spaceless time!”
