    Tyr ... the lyrics of this song made me think of you. You might not like the music but give it a try.

    If the freedom of speech is taken away
    then dumb and silent we may be led,
    like sheep to the slaughter.


    George Washington (1732-1799) First President of the USA.

    Try Shostakovich Seventh Symphony -- Leningrad .
    Not just a commemoration of Russia repelling the Germans and Finns .

    More a brutal onslaught against Fascism and Terror -- Stalin and Hitler at that time . As openly later admitted .

    Ideal for all of us today and us ,in capitals , in particular .

    Listening to this great song.
    I can not explain how deeply this song touched me first time that I heard it.
    And it sends me back to that time in a way like nothing else ever does..
    Youth and its magic- buddy when its gone its gone forever.
    There is no regaining that innocence and that level of hope and great expectations!
    The lyrics are pure poetry and the voice singing is fantastic.--- Tyr

    ************

    and this one totally slays me....
    Again the lyrics and the voice.. and damn if I havent been loking for myself many times in my life..--Tyr




    ************


    All the way back to this one which is killer!
    The gal I was with then drop dead gorgeous, a stone cold beauty.
    That song tells how she did me... "what she been-doing to me"
    I thought the damn world ended we we parted... damn drugs...
    She simply could not stop using drugs..
    I would have fought a mad, raging tiger with a goose feather to save her! --Tyr



    **********************

    And Tom Petty just kills it with this one.
    Reminds me of one of my friends in my youth, dead now never made it to 30!!!-Tyr





    **********************


    This one I found that girl. --my wife...
    Coming up on 17 Beautiful years this December 10th.... --Tyr







    *****************************

    I look back at all the versions of me.
    And it truly is a wonder that I am still alive-for once I was a wild and ill-tempered hellion
    helllbennnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnt on destroying this damnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn ffing world that battle me every damn day!
    My only saving grace was my poetry...
    And perhaps it still is.... --Tyr

    *****************************

    I have been through that before.
    Could do nothing for her and had to leave because it hurt too much to watch her destroy herself with her beloved drugs..
    Only time I've ever ran away from anythingsince age 11...-Tyr

    Now Petty sings the monkey man song



    And for good measure another one.
    Truth at age 21 Idated a cowgirl like that one in the song video below.
    And as was the usual, I totally messed it up. There in me was this
    wild force that said--ffkk it to anything that tried to limit/tame me.-Tyr

    I did once so relate to this song.
    I raised a damn lot of hell in my youth. Whiskey drinking and hot temper never goes well together.
    Add in a constant battling against this damnable world and hell going to be raised....
    Got the damn scars on my body and those in my mind/soul to prove it too.. --Tyr






    Honey don't walk out I'm too drunk to follow
    You know you won't feel this way tomorrow
    Well - maybe I'm a little rough around the edges
    Inside a little hollow
    I get faced with somethings sometimes
    That are so hard to swallow - Hey!

    [Chorus:]
    I was born a rebel
    Down in Dixie on a Sunday morning
    Yeah - with one foot in the grave
    And one foot on the pedal
    I was born a rebel.

    Well she picked me up in the morning
    And she paid out my ticket
    Yeah she screamed in the car
    And threw me out in the thicket
    Well - I never would've dreamed
    That her heart was so wicked
    Oh - but I keep coming back
    'Cause it's so hard to kick it.
    Hey, hey, hey

    [Chorus]

    Even before my father's fathers
    They called us all rebels
    Burned our cornfields
    And left our cities level
    I can still see the eyes
    Of those blue bellied devils
    When I'm walking round tonight
    Through the concrete and metal.
    Hey, hey, hey
    **************************

    Nobody could write gutsy lyrics like Tom Petty.
    Yet some could still live them... at least those born in the fifties could and once did.--Tyr

    **********************
    edit-

    Here is the Live version --



    ************************

    Another Petty-live performance of Breakdown...

    Love this song, fantastic lyrics and I once dated --that girl!!!
    Loved her but could not take any more hits,cuts, slashes and battering she dished out.
    And I was back then one damn tough hombre- but stone cold foxes like that can hurt a man like no other creature.
    They have a hold, a power- that is almost unfathomable to believe, but unmerciful when unleashed upon you.
    Only those ever the victim of it can even begin to understand it and its vicious blows... --Tyr

    Damn straight, listening to this song again!
    He wrote it about me and my kind... A fact..-Tyr






    So damn strange when one finds out that they were born at least a hundred fifty years too late..
    Nobody did lyrics like the great Tom Petty- So truly Southern born and Southern pride. -Tyr

    *******************

    Another one that speaks directly to my heart and soul, to how I was raised.
    That Tom Petty puts so perfectly, imho.. -Tyr
