Album:It's Still the 60's

Sixties
Remember in our college days of Vietnam and student rights,
We poured our lives into the fight.
Our hearts sang out like sirens in the night!
And, Jim, you were a leader then. You knew that we could overcome.
You spoke the words; you beat the drum.
We dreamed our dreams of what we might become.

Jim, where are you now?
Was it so hard, you just stopped believing?
Jim, I know somehow we still can take control of our own lives.

We woke up to the seventies and nothing seemed so black and white.
Our heroes didn't shine so bright.
We turned inside and you slipped out of sight.
The women's movement gathered strength and men began to work things through.
A spirit from within us grew.
And through it all, I remembered you.

Jim, where are you now?
Was it so hard, you just stopped believing?
Jim, I know somehow we still can take control of our own lives.

I heard you were a corporate man and you got married someone said.
You made it to department head; now you dream of stock reports instead.
Another rumor tells the tale how you got hooked on harder stuff.
Things blew up and it got tough.
I wish you called me-- we were close enough.

Jim, where are you now?
Was it so hard, you just stopped believing?
Jim, I know somehow we still can take control of our own lives.

A real life 1984: Big Brother's TV missile war.
Just cutbacks, if you're sick or poor.
Will you stand up the way you did before?
I know you've thought about the nukes. With one false move we'll all be killed;
No matter what we've worked to build.
We can't let this madness be fulfilled!

Jim, where are you now?
Was it so hard, you just stopped believing?
Jim, I know somehow we still can take control of our own lives.

Jim, come back, Jim. Come back, Jim. Come back, Jim. Come back, Jim!
