Of fleas and men

Story

Story behind the song:

As you might have guessed from the intro bit, this song is about some fleas who are about to challenge and defy the belief system of the masses and attempt to jump out of the false ceiling that's contained them their entire lives.  It's a blatant metaphor on the human race and a social commentary on how the majority of people in this country just live in their little bubble worlds and rarely take the time to question what we're being told by our politicians and the corporate controlled propaganda machine commonly known as the mainstream media. The earth is flat.  The sun revolves around the earth. The US government is a beacon of peace, freedom and democracy.  How many of these myths do you believe and what will it take for you to jump beyond the glass and start seeking the truth?  Are we fleas or are we men?

Lyrics

So glad you made it are you hungry

grab a beer some chips and join the party

don’t you ever feel your life is hollow

well come and jump through the sky with me tomorrow

‘cause it’s all I can do to just get by

it’s just too easy to stay high

we sit and watch the world just spin

what are we fleas or are we men

don’t you ever wonder what is out there

aren’t you sick and tired of wearing your fear

we could spend our lives in this illusion

I’ve got a better plan it’s called revolution

(chorus)
