Prescript: I'm looking for someone to go 50/50 with me and move to either Ecuador, Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, or Mexico where we can make a very low income go much further with a lower cost, and higher standard, of living (than living in the States on such a low income). This includes an only income of Social Security Disability (SSDI) and/or Retirement benefits. The Social Security Administration most definitely DOES allow SSDI and/or Retirement benefits, but not Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, to be sent to recipients in most other countries! There are many books about moving and living abroad available at the public library and/or at Amazon.com . Naturally, I realize we would probably have to spend some time getting to know eachother, and finding out if we're compatible, before moving abroad together. We could even have our own separate "spaces" by choosing to rent or purchase a house or apartment with separate quarters, and still save considerable money in monthly costs compared to living in the States on the same income. If you might be interested, want to ask me some questions, and/or want to discuss it, please e-mail me at the address below.

THE FOLLOWING IS A COLLECTION OF THE LYRICS OF JACKSON BROWNE'S GREAT "PROTEST" SONGS, THAT I HOPE YOU WILL FIND EDIFYING, ADDED TO THE SITE ON 10-16-03 AND 2-2-04:




"ABOUT MY IMAGINATION"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
More songs from his album,
"The Naked Ride Home"
[Copyright (c) 2002 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"I kept my eyes open and tried to see
The point of what went on in front of me
I kept what moved me, forgot about the rest
And took my young imagination to the acid test

"And it was easy then to say what love could do
It's so easy when your world is new

"It's been so hard sometimes to find my way
I let my pleasure lead my little world astray
And if I'm truthful I'll say that I was blind
To everything about this life but what I had in mind

"And it was easy then to say where love could go
It's so easy when there's so much you don't know

"About my imagination, it got me through somehow
Without my imagination, I wouldn't be here now

"And it was easy then when love was guaranteed
It's so easy when love is all you need

"About my imagination
I'm making this investigation
Into my imagination
According to the computations
We're overdue for a transformation
Or is it my imagination?

"I keep my eyes open and try to see
This life in terms of possibility
With so much changing, and changing for the worse
You got to keep your head up, Baby
From the cradle to the hearse

"And it was easy then to say where love could go
It's so easy when love is all you know

"About my imagination
I'm getting ready for the celebration
I'm bringing my imagination
Taking charge of my elevation
No fear, no trepidation
Register my affirmation
No doubt, no hesitation
People get ready for the embarkation

"About my imagination
Calling out across the nation
It's time for some kind of re-dedication
Not talking 'bout just my generation
I'm sending out this invocation
I keep getting these excitations
More (L)ight, more (L)ove
More (T)ruth, and more (I)nnovation"





"SERGIO LEONE"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
Another song from his album,
"The Naked Ride Home"
[Copyright (c) 2002 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"He came 'round there with his camera and some of his American friends
Where the money is immortal and the killing never ends
He set out from Cinecitta through the ruined streets of Rome
To shoot in Almeria and bring the bodies home

"He said,
"I'll be rich or I'll be dead
I've got it all here in my head"

"He could see the killers' faces and he heard the song they sang
Where he waited in the darkness with the Viale Glorioso gang
He could see the blood approaching and he knew what he would be
Since the days when he was first assisting the The Force of Destiny

"He worked for Walsh and Wyler with the chariot and sword
When he rode out in the desert he was quoting the Hawks and Ford
He came to see the masters and he left with what he saw
What he stole from Kurosawa he bequeathed to Peckinpah

"From the Via Tusolana to the view from Miller Drive
He shot the eyes of bad men and kept their deaths alive
With the darkness and the anguish of a Goya or Van Cleef
He rescued truth from beauty and meaning from belief"





"DON'T YOU WANT TO BE THERE(?)"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
One more song from his album,
"The Naked Ride Home"
[Copyright (c) 2002 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"Don't you want to be there, dont you want to go?
Where the (L)ight is breaking and the cold clear winds blow
Don't you want to be there in the golden glow(?)

"Don't you want to be there, don't you want to fly?
With your arms out, let a shout take you across the sky(?)
Don't you want to be there when the time's gone by(?)

"Times there was love all around you
Times you were strong and alone
Times you believed love had found you
And you fell through time like a stone

"And those you have wronged, you know
You need to let them know some way
And those who have wronged you, know
You'll have to let them go someday

"Don't you want to be there? Don't you want to cry when you see how far
You've got to go to be where forgiveness rules
Instead of where you are(?)

"Don't you want to be there, don't you want to know?
Where the grace and simple truth of childhood go(?)
Don't you want to be there when the trumpets blow(?)

"Blow for those born into hunger
Blow for those lost 'neath the train
Blow for those choking in anger
Blow for those driven insane

"And those you have wronged, you know
You need to let them know some way
And those who have wronged you, know
You'll have to let them go someday

"Don't you want to be there?
Don't you want to see where the angels appear(?)
Don't you want to be where there's (S)trength and (L)ove
In the place of fear(?)"





"LOOKING EAST"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne, Jeff Young,
Kevin McCormick, Scott Thurston,
Mark Goldenberg, Mauricio Lewak,
and Luis Conte
A great protest song from their great
collaborative album, "Looking East"
[Copyright (c) 1996 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne, et al.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"Standing in the ocean with the sun burning low in the west
Like a fire in the cavernous darkness at the heart of the beast
With my beliefs and possessions, stopped at the frontier in my chest
At the edge of my country, my back to the sea, looking east

"Where the search for the truth is conducted with a wink and a nod
And where power and position are equated with the grace of God
These times are famine for the soul while for the senses it's a feast
From the edge of my country, as far as you see, looking east
(towards Washington, D.C.)

"Hunger in the midnight, hunger at the stroke of noon
Hunger in the mansion, hunger in the rented room
Hunger on the TV, hunger on the printed page
And there's a God(-)sized hunger underneath the laughing and the rage
In the absence of (L)ight
And the deepening night
Where I wait for the sun
Looking east

"How long have I left my mind to the powers that be?
How long will it take to find the higher power moving in me?

"Power in the insect
Power in the sea
Power in the snow falling silently
Power in the blossom
Power in the stone
Power in the song being sung alone
Power in the wheatfield
Power in the rain
Power in the sunlight and the hurricane
Power in the silence
Power in the flame
Power in the sound of the lover's name
The power of the sunrise and power of a prayer released
On the edge of my country, I pray for the ones with the least

"Hunger in the midnight, hunger at the stroke of noon
Hunger in the banquet, hunger in the bride and groom
Hunger on the TV, hunger on the printed page
And there's a God(-)sized hunger underneath the questions of the age
And an absence of (L)ight
In the deepening night
Where I wait for the sun (Son?)
Looking east"





"SOME BRIDGES"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne, Jeff Young,
Kevin McCormick, Scott Thurston,
Mark Goldenberg, Mauricio Lewak,
and Luis Conte
Another great protest song from their great
collaborative album, "Looking East"
[Copyright (c) 1996 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne, et al.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"Every day I walk out in this torn up world
And I fight to survive
I'm laughing when I make it to Saturday
And I'm (still) alive

"Carrying your smile with me
Carrying your smile with me

"Everywhere I look I see this world slipping down
That low road, day by day
And I just go on working for the things I need
And making my own way
Carrying your smile with me
Carrying your smile with me
Take a walk on the troubled side of this old town
Take a walk on the broken streets and the buildings falling down
Look at all these kids with nothing but trouble in their eyes
Trouble in their future(s), trouble in their lives
Some bridges are falling down
Some bridges are still around

"Take a walk on the shaded uptown avenue
Some people are doing well no matter how they do
And I know there's more to life than what you own
But I see so many good things, things I've never known
Some bridges are falling down
Some bridges are still around
Every night I listen to the sound of the street
Lying in my bed
I love to see the dreams that are dancing there
In the light above your head
Sometimes I get so weary
And when hope is caving in
You fill me with your loving and laughter, Baby Until I get back up again
Carrying your smile with me
Take a walk on the streets of this divided town
Carrying your smile with me
Take a walk on the smoking edge of the battleground

"Carrying your smile with me
Take a look at the situation
The poverty and the desperation
Take the time for a realization
Every day I'm....
Take a walk in the daylight
Carrying your smile with me
Some bridges are falling down
Carrying your smile with me
Some bridges are still around"





"INFORMATION WARS"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne, Jeff Cohen, Jeff Young
Kevin McCormick, Scott Thurston, Mark Goldenberg
Mauricio Lewak, and Luis Conte
Yet another great protest song from their
great collaborative album, "Looking East"
[Copyright (c) 1996 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne, et al.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"Give us twenty minutes and we'll give you the world
We bring good things to life
The news you need from people you can count on
Doing what we do best
The heartbeat of America
Your true voice
You're in good hands
Now more than ever before

"And in the flickering light and comforting glow
You get the world every night as a TV show
The latest spin on the shit we're in, blow by blow
And the more you watch(,) the less you know
Beyond the hundred million darkened living rooms
Out where the human ocean roars
Into the failing light(,) the generations go
Heading for the information wars

"Do people really spend millions upon millions
To make us think we care about the planet--
At the same time polluting and looting the only world we've got
So they can maximize their profit(s)?
People do.

"The heartbeat of America
Your true voice
For the life of your business
It's everywhere you want to be

"And there's a front row seat for the precious few
The latest war as a pay-per-view
Famine and disaster right in front of you
And the more you watch the less you do
Beyond the hundred million darkened living rooms
Out where the human ocean roars
Into the failing light the generations go
Heading for the information wars"





"IT IS ONE"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne, Jeff Young,
Kevin McCormick, Scott Thurston,
Mark Goldenberg, Mauricio Lewak,
Luis Conte, and Valerie Carter
One more great protest song from their great
collaborative album, "Looking East"
[Copyright (c) 1996 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne, et al.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"They shot a man into the sky
The moon and the stars became his bed
He saw the sun rise seven times
And when he came back down(,) he said(,)

"'It is one, it is one,
One world spinning 'round the sun
Wherever it is you call home
Whatever country you come from
It is one, it is one, it is one'(!)

"They shot a man in Africa
At a time of rivalry and war
He had some dreams of a good life
But dreams aren't what they killed him for

"Now people stand themselves next to the righteous
And they believe the things they say are true
They speak in terms of what divides us
To justify the violence they do

"But it is one, it is one(!),
One world spinning 'round the sun
Wherever it is you call home
Whatever country you come from(,)
It is one, it is one, it is one, it is one(!)
One -- the deep blue ocean
One -- the endless sky
One -- the purple mountains
One -- you and I(!)

"It's not a world of our own choosing
We don't decide where we are born
This life is a battleground between right and wrong
One way or (')other we are torn

"And people stand themselves next to the righteous
And they believe the things they say are true
And speak in terms of what divides us
To justify the violence they do

"But it is one, it is one(!),
One world spinning 'round the sun(!)
Wherever it is you call home(!)
Whatever country you come from(!)
It is one, it is one, it is one, it is one(!)
It is one, it is one, it is one, it is one(!)
One -- the purple mountains(!)
One -- the deep blue sea(!)
One -- all of creation(!)
One -- you and me(!)"

HERE ARE THE LYRICS OF SOME MORE OF JACKSON BROWNE'S GREAT "PROTEST" SONGS THAT I HOPE YOU WILL FIND EDIFYING, ADDED TO THE SITE ON 10-16-03 AND 2-2-04:




"WORLD IN MOTION"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne and Craig Doerge
A song from Jackson's album, "World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"Sun going down in the USA
Down on Main there's a family sleeping in a doorway
Around the corner you can hear the sound
People dancing around the golden calf
Those who have not, those who have

"On the billboards and the T.V. screens
They got food and cars and toys and trucks and jeans
Like a homeless child's fitfull dreams
Smiling faces free from wanting
Life's abundances beyond counting

"World in motion--speed your changes
Close your distances, find your angels
Lose your fears and meet your dangers
World in motion

"Once we were running through smoke and fire
Running into the sun
In the rush of youth, for love and truth
Our deeds were done
Now we awake with a world at stake
And a race we run
We run

"Sun going down on the USA
Sun coming up a (thousand) years away
On another world and another time
Things like hunger, greed and hatred
One way or another, gonna be erradicated

"World in motion--speed your changes
Close your distances, drive your angels
Lose your fears and meet your dangers
World in motion

"'Till the world I look out at and see
Is the world I know this world (will) be
You have a volunteer in me
Now(,) come on(!)"





"HOW LONG(?!)"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
Another song from his album,
"World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"When you look into a child's face
And you're seeing the human race
And the endless possibilities there
Where so much can come true
And you think of the beautiful things
A child can do

"How long---would the child survive
How long---if it was up to you(?)

"When you think about the money spent
On defense by a government
And the weapons of destruction we've built
We're so sure that we need
And you think of the millions and millions
That money could feed

"How long---would the child survive
How long---can you hear someone dying
Before you ask yourself why?
And how long will we hear people speaking
About missiles for peace
And just let it go by
How long will they tell us these weapons
Are keeping us free
That's a lie(!)

"If you saw it from a satellite
With its green and its blue and white
The beauty of the curve of the (E)arth
And its oceans below
You might think it was paradise
If you didn't know
You might think that it's turning
But it's turning so slow

"How long---can you hear someone crying
How long---can you hear someone dying
Before you ask yourself why?
And how long will it be 'till we've turned
To the tasks and the skills
That we'll have to have learned
If we're going to find our place in the future
And have something to offer
Where this planet's concerned
How long?(!)"





"ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
A great song from his album,
"World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"Time will come when we know what happened here
Change will come in time and make it clear
We learn one thing if we learn at all
In the secret wars we call our lives
Anything can happen

"We watch the days, we make our plans
We change in ways a life demands
But what ever pleasure this life may allow
I'll give you the love I have for you now
Because anything can happen

"Yeah, if this love can happen here
Anything can(!)

"We watch the days(,) we make our plans
We change in ways a life demands
I'll always remember this time, this place
The hope in your voice, the light on your face

"Because anything can happen
In a world so full of pain
People give their lives to making war
And we call those people sane
But I love you where your dreams remain
Though you never say it anymore
One day there'll be an end to this war
And who knows
We may see what we're here for

"Anything can happen(!)

"Yeah, if this love has found us here
Anything can
Can Happen(!)"





"WHEN THE STONE BEGINS TO TURN"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
Another great song from his album,
"World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"I come here for Dr. King
Who gave (T)he (P)eople a precious thing
He found a (L)ight in the darkest hour
And the strength for speaking truth to power(!)

"And in the years since they shot him down
You see changes that once were a dream
Begin to come around

"When the walls have begun to crumble(!)
When the laws have begun to burn(!)
When the wind is singing freedom(!)
When the stone begins to turn(!)

"And I come here to praise Mandela
And to send this message to his jailer
Your walls may hold the man inside
But they'll never ever hold back the tide(!)

"'Cause in the years you've shut him away
A generation has grown where he stood
They're gonna see the day(!)

"When the walls have begun to crumble(!)
When the laws have begun to burn(!)
When the wind is singing freedom(!)
When the stone begins to turn(!)

"We come here to sing for freedom
And to send our voices to the ones who need them
Freedom for South Africa(!)
And justice for Nelson Mandela(!)

"'Cause in the years they've shut him away
A generation has grown where he stood
We're gonna see the day(!)

"When the walls have begun to crumble(!)
When the laws have begun to burn(!)
When the wind is singing freedom(!)
When the stone begins to turn(!)"





"THE WORD JUSTICE"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne and Scott Thurston
Yet another song from Jackson's album,
"World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"A man stands up before his God and country
Raises his right hand and takes an oath
Swears he has acted in the line of duty
And he more than anyone wants to tell the truth(!)

"But there is a need to keep some things a secret
Some weapons shipments--some private wars
In the future democracy will be defended
Behind closed doors(!)

"Now the men of Congress who convene to determine
If covert war is a business or a crime
Are the same men who routinely give their permission
For the shedding of blood in security's name(!)

"And there is a need to keep some things a secret
The names of some countries--the terms of some deals
And above all the sound of the screams of the innocent
(Crushed) (b)eneath our wheels(!)

"Does the word justice mean anything to you?(!)
Are the features of a lie beginning to come through?(!)

"In the streets of America the children are buried
Caught in an avalanche of weapons and drugs
They live and they die in the bowels of a business That's disguised as a war between the Crips and the Bloods(!)

"And there is a need to keep some things a secret
The CIA deals protecting the source (of the drugs)
And the government policies directly connecting
The drugs and our wars(!)

"Does the word justice mean anything to you?(!)

"As the battlefield comes home and democracy falls through(!)

"I am waiting for the time to come
When the word (justice) will be real for EVERYONE(!)
And not just a word(,) but the thing that can be done(!)
But justice must be won(!)"





"MY PERSONAL REVENGE"
Lyrics by Tomas Borge and Louis Enrique Mejia Godoy,
English translation by Jorge Calderon
Another song from Jackson's album,
"World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"My personal revenge will be the right(s)
Of our children in the schools and in the gardens
My personal revenge will be to give you
This song which has flourished without panic

"My personal revenge will be to show you
The kindness in the eyes of my people
Who have always fought relentlessly in battle
And been generous and firm in victory(!)

"My personal revenge will be to tell you, 'Good morning'(!)
On a street without beggars or homeless
When instead of jailing you(,) I suggest
You shake away the sadness there that blinds you(!)

"And when you who have applied your hands in torture
Are unable to look up at what surrounds you
My personal revenge will be to give you
These hands that once you so mistreated
But have failed to take away their tenderness(!)

"It was (T)he (P)eople who hated you the most(,)
When rage became the language of their song
And underneath the skin of this town today(,)
Its heart has been scarred forevermore(!)

"And underneath the skin of this town today(,)
Red and black, its heart's been scarred
Forevermore(!)"





"I AM A PATRIOT(!)"
Lyrics by Little Steven
Another great song from Jackson's album,
"World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"And the river opens for the righteous(!)
Someday

"I was walking with my brother
And he wondered what's on my mind(!)
I said what I believe in my soul
Ain't what I see with my eyes
And we can't turn our backs this time(!)

"I am a patriot(!)
And I love my country(!)
Because my country is all I know(!)
I want to be with my family(!)
The people who understand me(!)
I've got nowhere else to go(!)

"And the river opens for the righteous(!)
And the river opens for the righteous(!)
And the river opens for the righteous(!)
Someday

"And I was talking with my sister
She looked so fine(!)
I said, 'Baby, what's on your mind?'(!)
She said, 'I want to run like the lion
Released from the cages
Released from the rages
Burning in my heart tonight(!)'

"And I ain't no communist(!)
And I ain't no capitalist(!)
And I ain't no socialist(!)
And I ain't no imperialist(!)

"And I ain't no democrat(!)
And I ain't no republican(!)
I only know one party(!)
And it is (F)reedom(!)

"I am, I am, I am(,)
I am a patriot(!)
And I love my country(!)
Because my country is all I know(!)

"And the river opens for the righteous(!)
And the river opens for the righteous(!)
And the river opens for the righteous(!)
Someday(!)"





"LIGHTS AND VIRTUES"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne,
One more song from his album,
"World In Motion"
[Copyright (c) 1989 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"Here's to lights and virtues
Here's to truths yet to be known
Knowledge to light the darkness
The search for things of your own

"Here's to lights and virtues
Here's to reaching higher ground
A life of hope and purpose
Here's to strength yet to be found
Honor--though it goes unrecognized
And (T)ruth--though liars abound

"The pleasure of love and friendship
The courage to be alone"





"FOR (')AMERICA(')"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne,
From his great album,
"Lives In The Balance"
[Copyright (c) 1986 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"As if I really don't understand
That I was just another part of their plan
I went off looking for the promise
Believing in the Motherland
And from the comfort of a dreamer's bed
And the safety of my own head
I went on speaking of the future
While other people fought and bled
The kid I was when I first left home
Was looking for his freedom and a life of his own
But the freedom that he found wasn't quite as sweet
When the truth was known
I have prayed for (")America(")
I was made for (")American(")
It's in my blood and in my bones
By the dawn's early light
By all I know is right
We're going to reap what we have sown

"As if freedom was a question of might
As if loyalty was black and white
You hear people say it all the time---
"My country wrong or right"
I want to know what that's got to do
With what it takes to find out what's true
With everyone from the President on down
Trying to keep it from you

"The thing I wonder about the Dads and Moms
Who send their sons to the Vietnams
Will they really think their way of life
Has been protected as the next war comes?
I have prayed for (")America(")
I was made for (")America(")
Her shining dream plays in my mind
By the rockets red glare
A generation's blank stare
We better wake her up this time

"The kid I was when I left home
Was looking for his freedom and a life of his own
But the freedom that he found wasn't quite as sweet
When the truth was known
I have prayed for (")America(")
I was made for (")America(")
I can't let go (')til she comes around
Until the land of the free
Is awake and can see
And until her conscience has been found"





"SOLDIER OF PLENTY"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne,
Another song from his album,
"Lives In The Balance"
[Copyright (c) 1986 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"God is great, God is good
He guards your neighborhood
Though it's generally understood
Not quite the way you would
You try to take the slack
But something happens every now and then
And someone breaks into the promised land
Ah boy boy
The world is not your toy
The world is long on hunger
The world is short on joy

"A--E--I--O,
You speak as if you know
What's good for everyone
What's good in what you've done
What's good about a world in which
War rages at a fever pitch
And people die for the little things
A little corn, a little beans

"Ah boy boy
This world is not your toy
This world is, this world's
Long on hunger,
Short on joy
How much longer
You gonna keep the world hungry boy(?)

"You measure peace with guns
Progress in mega-tons
Who's left when the war is won?
Soldier of misfortune---
Soldier of an angry call
Soldier on foreign soil
I'm not here to fight your war
I know what you're fighting for

"Ah boy boy
This world is not your toy
This world is, this world is
Long on hunger,
Short on joy
How much longer
You gonna keep the world hungry boy?"





"LIVES IN THE BALANCE"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
Another great song from his album,
"Lives In The Balance"
[Copyright (c) 1986 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"I've been waiting for something to happen
For a week or a month or a year
With the blood in the ink of the headlines
And the sound of the crowd in my ear
You might ask what it takes to remember
When you know that you've seen it before
When a government lies to a people
And a country is drifting to war

"And there's a shadow on the faces
Of the men who send the guns
To the wars that are fought in places
Where their business interest runs

"On the radio talk shows and the T.V.
You hear one thing again and again
How the U.S.A. stands for freedom
And we come to the aid of a friend
But who are the ones that we call our friends---
The governments killing their own?
Or the people who finally can't take anymore
And they pick up a gun or a brick or a stone(?)
There are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire

"There's a shadow on the faces
Of the men who fan the flames
Of the wars that are fought in places
Where we can't even say the names

"They sell us the President the same way
They sell us our clothes and our cars
They sell us every thing from youth to religion
The same time they sell us our wars
I want to know who the men in the shadows are
I want to hear somebody asking them why
They can be counted on to tell us who our enemies are
But they're never the ones to fight or to die
And there are lives in the balance
There are people under fire
There are children at the cannons
And there is blood on the wire"





"'TILL I GO DOWN"
Lyrics by Jackson Browne
Yet Another protest song from his album,
"Lives In The Balance"
[Copyright (c) 1986 in the U.S.A. and
Internationally by Jackson Browne.
All rights are reserved. (Emphasis
in parenthesis added by me.)]



"'Till I go down
'Till I go down
'Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my eyes
'Till I go down

"I'm not gonna shut my eyes
I've already seen the lies
On the faces of the men at war
Leading people to the killing floor
'Till I go down
'Till I go down
'Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my eyes
No(,) no

"'Till I go down
'Till the world stops spinning around
'Till I'm six feet under the ground
'Till there's no sound
'Till there's no pain
I'm gonna swing this chain
'Till I go down

"I'm not gonna shut my mouth
I'm for the truth to come out
About the leader with the iron will
And his allegiance to the dollar bill

"'Till I go down
'Till I go down
'Till I go down
I'm not gonna shut my eyes
'Till I go down"

Postscript: I'm looking for someone to go 50/50 with me and move to either Ecuador, Costa Rica, Belize, Guatemala, or Mexico where we can make a very low income go much further with a lower cost, and higher standard, of living (than living in the States on such a low income). This includes an only income of Social Security Disability (SSDI) and/or Retirement benefits. The Social Security Administration most definitely DOES allow SSDI and/or Retirement benefits, but not Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, to be sent to recipients in most other countries! There are many books about moving and living abroad available at the public library and/or at Amazon.com . Naturally, I realize we would probably have to spend some time getting to know eachother, and finding out if we're compatible, before moving abroad together. We could even have our own separate "spaces" by choosing to rent or purchase a house or apartment with separate quarters, and still save considerable money in monthly costs compared to living in the States on the same income. If you might be interested, want to ask me some questions, and/or want to discuss it, please e-mail me at the address below.
