Suicidal Tendencies – Cyco Speak lyrics
Mike Clark: Ladies and gentlemen, sorry to interrupt you from your listening pleasure… I’d like to have your undivided attention please… and please welcome the honorable Cyco Miko to the podium thank you.
Mike Miur: Thank you very much I’d like to thank brother Clark from the Suicidal Family for that fine greeting. Anyhow, I wanna jump in real quick so we can get back to the music; it’s jammin’ and I know you know it and I know it too. But sometimes you got to go to that extra level, take another step, step back, and get a running start on it. See right now I have to get to a point, a point most people won’t go because it’s a little bit to close to the truth, and the truth isn’t somethin’ that’s gonna benefit them in the way that the want it to be. See my dad taught me a long time ago, it’s not what someone does it’s why they do it that really matters. And that’s what you should judge’em for. People can be the nicest person in the world, but that’s only to get you to think they’re nice, so they can let down the guard a little bit in your door and then you go in there door and they mess with your mind. Anyhow, too many people tryin’ to get you to think the way they want you to think; what we say, is trying to get you to think, whatever way that may be, but to realize the way you’re thinkin’ may not be the right way and give it a little extra thought. So with that in mind, the question is, what do we do why we do? Everyone’s got a motivation and sometimes you got to judge that to see where their power’s comin’ from or where they’re tryin’ to throw it. See our motivation, bein’ in the band, what we’re tryin’ to get across, is this right here, that little extra level. You see most people think they think but they’re not really thinkin’ so they start thinkin’ cause they thought they already thought, but they never did in the first place so it’s their own little safety level. So I sit down and said, if there’s all these people so smart thinkin’ so good, how come every day of my life there’s so many damn stupid people doin’ stupid things. See a wise man once told me, he said, “Mike, there’s two clubs, there’s the stupid people and the smart people. There ain’t nobody blockin’ the door at the stupid people entrance, anyone can go there. But the smart entrance, it’s a little more exclusive.” So what you wanna belong to? The country club, or the cardboard shack? The penthouse or the outhouse? Seems like an easy decision to me. So what we’re all thinkin’ about right now is what we’re talkin’ about, what we’re talkin’ about is what we’re thinkin’ about, and that’s the whole point: you should think before you talk. So where we’re at right now is a place that we want to go: a little bit of help. See: everyday, everywhere you go, people do stupid things. Three hundred and sixty five days out of the year, people not thinkin’. People that have the ability to think, that aren’t thinkin’. So what we want to do is nominate one day. Call it International Don’t Be Stupid Day. Now what this is gonna do is be a little reminder, maybe we could wear a pin, maybe you could send a tape to somebody, and when they start to do somethin’ you say, “whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on there partner. Today is Don’t Be Stupid Day, so you can’t do that.” So what we want you to do is just take a twenty four hours out of your life, think about all them dumb things that you just go right ahead and do, when you know damn well you wouldn’t want anyone else to do it, if you really cared about’em. So start carin’ about yourself, start usin’ your mind, and as we say, start your brain.
