Lyrics: Here are some lyrics that agent a.v.koshy wrote

Title: "pointlessism and the uselessness of art is not for saving the world through purpose but by sledging through aimlessness"

3.
do you want to save the world?
do you?
aha.
do you want to change the world?
do you?
aha.
not i. i just float on rings
of smoke
idly sit on castles of a dream
evoke

do you want to give me food?
do you?
aha.
do you want to give me drink?
do you?
aha.
not i. i just gaze on her
dream clad beauty, gold ringed curls
wring my breath across her pearls
evoke

do you want to power shift?
do you?
aha.
do you want to micro-loan?
do you?
aha.

not i. i want a poor man's meal
herbs of love and no envy
share and share both grief and pain
evoke

urgent
urgent urgent
aha.

Now there's things YOU can do!!!
Tell us what you think?
Think you can come up with a better set of lyrics that fit the song?
Create a blog post with the lyrics on it and let me know.
If you like the lyrics make a video with you singing it.

It´s so cool you posted the bpm and chords that way I can play it on my guitar and other people too in a guitar or other instruments too . That way we can all play it around the world like this song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Us-TVg40ExM or this played all around the world http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fgWFxFg7-GU we could do something similar . . .

The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
