"The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real, cause that's how powerful our minds are.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: "Is this real, or is this just a ride?" And other people have remembered, and they come back to us, and they say, "Hey - don't worry, don't be afraid - EVER - because... this is just a ride." And we... KILL those people. "Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride - SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry! Look at my big bank account, and my family! This just HAS to be real!"

It's just a ride.

And we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that, you ever notice that? And let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter because...

it's just a ride.

And we can change it anytime we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money. A choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one.

Here's what we can do to change the world, right now, to a better ride: Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over - not one human being excluded - and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace." - Bill Hicks

 
Exactly.  Amen.  Amplified and quadrupled.

I like Judy Tzuke but it would be interesting to hear Skye Edwards singing it.  For this version a 7 from me - for an imaginary sultry breathless version from Skye - a 9 !

if this had a banjo somewhere i would bump my 9 to a 10
 
As someone who isn't musically inclined, I can perfectly imagine a soft tickling of banjo strings replacing the guitar during what I believe is the bridge of the song.

Sounds like a good plan, but Skye's not on this song or album.

I thought that sounded like Judie! Still enjoying her first US release "Welcome to the Cruise." Over the top production may sound a little dated, but fans of Renaissance and the like may appreciate it.
