The Crime of the Century
« on: September 09, 2011, 00:24:11 AM »
(By the band "Supertramp")

Now they're planning the crime of the century.
Well, what will it be?
Read all about their schemes and adventuring:
Yes, it's well worth the fee.

So roll up and see:
How they've raped the universe,
How they've gone from bad to worse.

Who are these men, of lust, greed and glory?
Rip off the masks and let's see.
But that's not right - oh no! What's they story?
There's you, and there's me.

That can't be right...

Just thought this seemed so relevant to our sordid little world's current political climate  ;)

Yes, well written. Powerlessness is just a perception, and we're all responsible, until a bullet hit one's head.  :-\

Love Supertramp!! 

I was about 8 years old when I started listenning to them.  Probably the beginnings of my current political temperament, now that I think about it...

Are there any current bands that challenge authority so eloquently & mellifluously??
