about

My friend and KUNM DJ asked me if I had any political songs for him to play on the Afternoon Freeform. So... I wrote him ÜberStank.

lyrics

ÜberStank
Music & Lyric by Stavros


Aw Shucks, ya'll, Gettin' bent over this wall
Don't you know that the puppet needs his play?
To keep our minds trapped, stuck in the grind
Of a normal day to day.
So the Peeps in the Tower, the ones with real power
Pulling the strings like the wizard Oz
Can do what they want, this ain't some Lefty taunt
You're a slave; what else is there to say.
... Yeah, That's an ÜberStank

Ladies & Gentlemen, put your hands together
for the one and only beat Poet 168
In this groove master debate, spittin' fate
Can you dig it?
Yeah!
Can you dig it?
Yeah!

Big Orange is boring, a Twitter Nazi snoring
Flippin' the script like a Grand Wazoo
But what's really going on, the secret in this song
Is that Power is gonna do what they do
Like casino poker, the cards are fixed
The house is gonna win
America rises on Godzilla thighs
A whore and an addict to boot
We're all slaves to cash; Need a cable fix fast
To give Power more time
And sew it up, hem us all in
With some new commercial rhyme

Big Money - Big Money
Big Money - Big Money
Big Money - Big Money
Woe-O!

Big Money - Big Money
Big Money - Big Money
Big Money - Big Money
Woe-O!

Big Money - Big Money
Big Money - Big Money
Big Money - We Sold Our Souls!

Big Money - Big Money
Big Money - Big Money
Oh, Hell No!

This Godzilla super-power is gettin' dumber by the hour
Like plants need electrolytes
So, we gotta stay focused, teach truth not hocus pocus
Or listen to the gospel news
We gotta shape our minds while we're doin' soft time
Or else this world might explode
Forget the guns, that's a setting sun
On the shadows of our tombs
We gotta rise with knowledge; Kill the Electoral Collage
One Voice, One Vote, One Kill
Do what's right! We, The People, Have gotta fight
Or else we die by our ills

A government "for the people by the people"
can not, and will not, be represented by an oligarchic body
that usurped democracy by a slave-minded hegemony.
We don't need Bread & Circus!
We need truth - YEAH!
We don't need Bread & Circus!
We need truth - YEAH!
We Need.... Truth
We Need... Truth
We Need...

All you fat cat bastards in Congress & the House
To represent the American people, instead of yourselves.

about

Cherokee Starlight Albuquerque, New Mexico

Music is! It's the language of my heart, my mind, and Spirit. It is the language of our Earth, the stars; it is life. Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
