    millionaires for kerry 

    in a vitual gangbang of rock six seperate big name concerts went down in pennsylvania last night to help elect john kerry.

    the benefit shows starred such classic rockers as jackson browne, john melloncamp, and james taylor, as well as younger acts like death cab for cutie, bright eyes, keb mo, and ben harper.

    the biggest concert last night was held in philadelpia when bruce springsteen and the e street band joined john fogerty and r.e.m’s michael stipe

    “As Springsteen played Philadelphia, five other concerts starring such artists as Bonnie Raitt, the Dave Matthews Band, the Dixie Chicks and Pearl Jam played in other cities across Pennsylvania, one of the nation’s so-called battleground states seen as possibly swinging to either Bush or Kerry” reuters reported today.

    dont feel left out Ohio, Florida and Missouri, the Vote for Change artists have agreed to nearly forty benefit concerts in other “swing states” states including yours,

    so dig around your couch cushions for lighters and brush up on your r.e.m. lyrics.

    heres one you might need some practice with

    That’s great, it starts with an earthquake,

    birds and snakes, an aeroplane –

    Lenny Bruce is not afraid.

    Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn

    world serves its own needs, don’t misserve your own needs.

    Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt no, strength no.

    Ladder structure clatter with fear of height, down height.

    Wire in a fire, represent the seven games in a government for hire

    and a combat site.

    Left her, wasn’t coming in a hurry with the furies breathing

    down

    your

    neck.

    Team by team reporters baffled, trump, tethered crop.

    Look at that low plane!

    Fine. then.

    Uh oh, overflow, population, common group, but it’ll do. Save yourself, serve yourself.

    World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed.

    Tell me with the rapture and the

    reverent in the right

    right.

    You vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light,

    feeling pretty psyched.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    Six o’clock – TV hour.

    Don’t get caught in foreign tower.

    Slash and burn, return, listen to yourself churn.

    Lock him in uniform and book burning, blood letting.

    Every motive escalate.

    Automotive incinerate.

    Light a candle, light a motive.

    Step down, step down.

    Watch a heel crush, crush.

    Uh oh, this means

    no fear – cavalier.

    Renegade and steer clear!

    A tournament,

    a tournament,

    a tournament

    of lies.

    Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives

    and I

    decline.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.

    The other night I tripped a nice continental drift divide.

    Mountains sit in a line.

    Leonard Bernstein.

    Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs.

    Birthday party, cheesecake, jelly bean,

    boom!

    You symbiotic, patriotic, slam, but neck,

    right?

    Right.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine…fine…

    It’s time I had some time alone

    r.e.m.

    “it’s the end of the world as we know it

    (and i feel fine)”
