The title "Apathesia" is a word created from the combination of apathy and amnesia. The lessons from the past have taught us much, but the artistic and educational community has'nt done much yet to change things. We CAN help change the world and this horrible situation we're in. Listen close to to lyric and study what it's saying.

Thank you Sonny for contributing your beautiful song.[RV]
Yesterday Leroy bought himself a new toy
Thought it was a Bible but it was a Tolstoy
Started him to thinkin’ shook him to his core
For all the people dying … and what they’re dyin’ for
And all the people talking but doing not a thing
They oughta have a flag to wave or a bell to ring

People hate the enemies hiding in Afghanistan
Bush is fighting Iraq and thinking ‘bout Iran
Can’t get a break on oil even from the shiek
But all this talkin’ we do, is just our apathy
It’s the smell of blood, that turns some people on
It’s a fact lotsa wild creatures eat their young

Got apathesia?

Maybe there’s a way to figure it all out
get a crossword puzzle & a healthy dose a doubt
bring it to the preacher written on the list
not the orthodox but the fundamentalist

A message from the frontline reads like a valentine
Bush is killing our kids but he plays it … nevermind
Got a buncha new laws, civil rights, no cause
Tryin’ lyin’ tellin’ us believe in santa claus
Inquistion’s, just a bunch of silly questions
Another day is gone but we’re closer to elections

Just this side of treason is a soldier’s reason
For sittin’ in a humvee like a duck in season
Thank you lucifer the cowboy president
Gotta find a way to change his residence
Votin’ used to be the way to get it changed
From Pennsylvania Avenue to somewhere on the range

Maybe there’s a way to figure it all out
get a crossword puzzle & a healthy dose a doubt
bring it to the preacher written on the list
not the orthodox but the fundamentalist

Everybody run Cheney’s gotta gun
He may be shootin’ people but he sure is havin’ fun
Maybe he could use it on the frontline in Iraq
But he ain’t man enough cause they’d be shootin’ back

At times, feels fine just to think of givin’ in
Moral’s shot to hell, that’s a fine Republican
Gotta see the movie, it’s too late to rain
Scarecrow ain’t the only one who doesn’t have a brain
When it’s finally over, reached some resolution
Maybe we can start again and read the constitution

Maybe there’s a way to figure it all out
get a crossword puzzle & a healthy dose a doubt
bring it to the preacher written on the list
not the orthodox but the fundamentalist

Global warmings not a fallacy
It’ll be over in a century
But why should we care, what’s it worth?
After all it’s only mother earth

My dog says it’s bout time to stop and take a nap
Leanin’ on the sofa with the cat up in your lap
Listenin’ to the tv, everythings a mess
Rev’ling in, every word that simon says
Time is getting later ..we’re in this too deep
Another day is gone, time to go to sleep

Got apathesia?
