We Want Your Soul
Adam Freeland Lyrics


Your cellphone, your wallet, your time, your ideas
No barcode, no party, no iodine, no beers
Your bankcard, your license, your thoughts, your fears
No simcard, no disco, no photo, not here

Your blood, your sweat, your passions, your regrets
Your office, your timeoff, your fashions,
Your sex, your pills, your grass, your tits, your ass, your laughs, your balls, we want

We want your soul
We want your soul
We want your soul
We want your soul

Tell us your habits, your facts, your fears
Give us your address, your shoe size, your years
Your digits, your plans, your number, your eyes
Your schedule, your desktop, your details, your life
Show us your children, your photos, your home
Here, take credit, take insurance, take a loan
Get a job, get a pension, get a haircut, get a suit
Play the lottery, play football, play the field, sports on two

Well show you things well show you swings
We'll buy you things, llamas, big yard birds
Well sell you crap well charge you fat
Were gonna find big guns & a drunk in your kitchen

We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)

Your thoughts, your emotions
Your loves, your dreams, your checkbook
Your essecnse, your sweat, your screams
Your security your soberiety
Your innocence
Your society, your self your place your distance your space

We want your soul

Here's boy bands here's matters, here's britney, here's cola
Here's pizza, here's tv, here's some rock and some plur
Watch commercials, more commercials, watch jerry, not oprah
Buy a better life from the comfort of your sofa
Here's popcorn, here's magazines, here's milkshake, here's blue jeans
Here's padded bras, here's long cars, here's football shirts, here's baseball caps
Here's live talk shows, here's video games, here's cola lite, here's timberlake
Here's fingertips, here's colegen, here's all night bars, here's plastic hips

We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)

We want your soul
We want your soul
We want your soul
We want your soul

No cookies, no stray, no drop-outs
No gays, no leftys, no loonies
No opinions, no way, no bankers
No teachers, no facts, no freaks
No skaters, no tweekers, no truth

We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)

(Your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
(Your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
(Your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
(Your cash, your house, your phone, your life)
We want your soul (your cash, your house, your phone, your life)

@StopFear Presenting material which undermines itself with context is the basis of hauntological art: the clips in the video present their own reality, but the context they are presented in undermines their original intent. The purpose of displaying them is to undermine them. The other purpose of displaying them is to point out how they get inside your head even when you know that's what they're designed to do. Those McDonalds' Quarter Pounders do look fucking good.

Of course it's reinforcing consumerism: that's the point entirely. The video is a mockery.


Maybe there are people on here who allow their own sense of self-denial to see that the video is mocking them as the viewer. Maybe.

But the point of the court jester is to mock the king. The only guy who can tell it like it is. Except it doesn't always mean he's right. It occurs to me that the Bill Hicks quote, in context of the video becomes hauntological, too: the government really isn't in control of anything at all.

We're looking at interleaved layers of meaning, literally framed (in a very Brechtian way) in a TV to remind you that everything presented is merely a feed on a screen -- this video included. That's supposed to put you in a critical frame of mind. We're supposed to start pulling apart the themes and think.

Profound? I don't know. I'm not qualified to say.

Original? Of course not. What is?

Clever, effective art? Hell, yes.

Good song, too.

@Krs2 what a truly brilliant reply you've given here! God yeah dya know I've thought about its separate parts of American culture being a social engineering experiment (eg GM foods, TV shows for cultural socialised norms etc) but I'd never considered the country in its entirety as being one...

...but god yes I believe you're right!

Also, I really like your take on the media being the primary power base instead of the economoc model - as I primarily tend to fixate on.

I wouldn't say that capitalism in and of itself is bad, but unregulated capitalism (which spawns giant multinational companies and oligarchs / plutocrats such as Bezos) is definitely a threat to planetary stability.

However which is bigger? I don't know if that's quite the right question as it'd be very difficult to objectively determine the total effect of either economy or media on well being.

Instead I believe that both place disastrously over extended effects of their destructive potential.

The two are intrinsically interlinked; information (determined mostly by the media) feeds belief which drives action (eg. consume products) and the money monopolises power and ensures there is little power to alternative information (and therefore belief) sources.

Instead, the question really is, what do we do about it? My answer is open-system permaculture education reclamation of land to explore and show that there is another way to be without being defined by the status quo.

Note; the difficulty is ensuring that this community idea does not become a closed off cult with ideologies as destructive as the status who's societal norms and values.

What do you think? 🙂

“Your distance, your space” that one hit hard. 2020 Coronavirus and social distancing

Bettina Boennemann

Yep. For all of us who have been researching and watching. No surprise.

I agree. I try to tell people when they have affected me--it is the only way we can connect, and your comment has been in my mind for many days. The gravity of our collective expression is not limited to up-thumbs; they have meaning. You have meaning and I am witness to it, friend.

raydiegol

it fits perfectly for the coronavirus era we´re living right now.
