Wake up
The World Organization of the Righteous Movement [W.O.R.M.] Lyrics


I look good in a glass pack
I look good and mean
I look good in metallic sick wraparound blackout tease
I scud along the horizon, I drink some sweet tree
I get high in my low-ass boot-cut jean
I like being seen
I look good with my drink-eat-no-sleep, take-a-leap longevity
I get high on my attitude, latitude, 1973
I'm in deep
My head's on fire and high esteem
Carry my dead, bored, been there, done that, anything
Oh, the wake-up bomb
Oh, the wake-up bomb
Oh, the wake-up bomb
Oh, the wake-up bomb
My head's on fire and high esteem
Get drunk and sing along to Queen
Practice my T-Rex moves and make the scene
Carry my dead, bored, been there, done that, anything

I had to knock a few buildings over
I make an ugly mess
I had to blow a gasket
Drop transmission
I had to decompress
I had to write the great American novel
I had a neutron bomb
I had to teach the world to sing by the age of 21
I wake up (I wake up)
I wake up (I wake up)
I threw up when I saw what I'd done

Oh, the wake-up bomb
Oh, the wake-up bomb
My head's on fire and high esteem
Get drunk and sing along to Queen
Practice my T-Rex moves and make the scene
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything

I've had enough, I've seen enough, I've had it all, I'm giving up
I won the race, I broke the cup, I drank it all, I spit it up
I've had enough, I've seen enough, I've had it all, I'm giving up
I won the race, I broke the cup, I drank it all, I spit it up
Yeah, atomic, supersonic
What a joke, I'm dumb
See ya, don't want to be you
Lunch meat, Pond scum

My head's on fire in high esteem
Get drunk and sing along to Queen
Practice my T-Rex moves and make the scene
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything
Yeah, I'd rather be anywhere doing anything
Yeah

Thank you much for sharing this knowledge.

Every episode is a history lesson, and I thank you for that.

We need Law & Order from the cops and corrupt government

Your guests remind me that all is not lost, they give me hope .

Speaking of the younger generation leading the movement, please have Tamika Mallory on TTR! That would be an amazing episode ❤️

So sad that we did not learn about this in high school ....unless I just was out of it...not sure!

This was a great episode. I'm currently reading Dr. West's 'Democracy Matters' and hearing about Mr. Hampton from Mr. Taylor provides a great connecting point. Mr. Hampton is an excellent counter figure to the paternalistic nihilism that Dr. West writes of in 'Democracy Matters'. Meanwhile, The Tight Rope is an excellent opposition to the many sidestepping sentimental nihilists found in other media outlets. Thank you for this program!

Also, Dr. West was a frequent customer at a restaurant I worked while he was a professor at Harvard. He was always incredibly kind and generous each visit. I was always grateful to serve him.
