    Just some words that we blast on the stereo every time we wonder if this government is working for us..........

    Silent Running by Mike and the Mechanics

    Take the children and yourself
    And hide out in the cellar
    By now the fighting will be close at hand
    Don't believe the church and state
    And everything they tell you
    Believe in me, I'm with the high command

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    There's a gun and ammunition
    Just inside the doorway
    Use it only in emergency
    Better you should pray to God
    The Father and the Spirit
    Will guide you and protect from up here

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Swear allegiance to the flag
    Whatever flag they offer
    Never hint at what you really feel
    Teach the children quietly
    For some day sons and daughters
    Will rise up and fight while we stood still

    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
    Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
    Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

    Can you hear me running (can you hear me calling you?)
    (Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
    (Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
    (Can you hear me running) hear me running?
    Calling you, calling you

    The video wasn't what I expected after reading the words of the song. Interesting.

    haha that was trippy, and very irrelevant...found out it's from the movie Choke Canyon about a cowboy scientist getting kicked off his land so they can dump nuclear waste there and the film follows him around committing acts of "ecotage"

    YEAH ECOTAGE! YEAH 1986!

    but the clips in that music video have nothing to do with the plot in the movie...

    The point was the song and words and not the context of the movie. I was also disappointed when I saw the movie context. If we go on context, I would use Henery the Eighth I am by Hermans Hermits for Obama.

    If we need to argue context, how about the Lulaby Rock a Bye Bady. Let's see, we need to put an infant in a tree, then the bough has to break and the baby hits the ground. I sure hope the cradle is approved and licensed and that the company has tested it with a real infant. NO>>>>> Wait.... Some times one thing does not have to relate to another. Opps........ sorry.

    I thought the words to the song "Silent Running" were exellent! I was just surprised that the video was a little different than I figured it would be. The video wasn't bad, and I guess it's a good lesson not to have preconceived notions about someone else's ideas. The song was good, the lyrics were good.

    Thanks for shaing them with us all.

    NaeKId- Thanks for the comment. I relate to the song lyrics and not the movie content. Good to know people like you keep things in perspective........

    As soon as I read the chorus, I remembered the song. When I watched the video, I could still sing along (knew all the words). But seeing the lyrics....wow. I never even thought about the words and what it was really saying. Thanks for the eye opener!

    mdprepper-
    For me it was just the realization that I might not be where I need to be to protect who I need to. Even tho I am focused that way. I have not thought about that song in years and one day it hit me. I remembered the song focus but not a group or what it was about. Just came out of nowhere. Then, I decided to get prepared.
