Jello Biafra – Enchanted Thoughtfist lyrics

I am a product of the television age
Zoom in on what's important
Get the point right away

A modern lack of patience
Is it a virtue?
Hardly ever read books
Devour 'zines and reviews

I'll say it again
We all believe
What we want to believe
Don't question authority -Question everything

Felt I had to confess
In Ginsberg's apartment
My literary background's mostly songs and cartoons

He said, "Oh, that's just fine"
I sort of felt relieved
But when I hurt my word bombs
How much should be believed

Say it again
We all believe
What we want to believe
Don't just question authority -Don't forget to question me

That's right
Take flight
Use In-sight

The pressure of being taken seriously
Breathing down on me, to keep up with my extremes
And keep on plantin' seeds
The joy of sabotage
So far so good

Now where do we go from here? It always feels weird
When people come up to me, and say I've changed their lives
I say, Now it's your turn
To start a fire fire fire
Start your own fire
Bring the world fire
