about

Noam Chomsky was born on December 7, 1928. This is an homage to Noam: A faithful radical, a power pirate, a poet of politics and an institute professor.

lyrics

There was a false claim
Even in Europe
Maybe because of what he said
For the last year
In the worst way
A tiny clique down in Washington
We are in
An extremely dangerous
Situation all the time
In ways
Which increased the threat
Enlisted bets
And lost it’s mind

12 - 7 - 19 - 2 - 8
Institute professor
Radical faithful, power pirates
Poets are, politics

12 - 7 - 19 - 2 - 8
Institute professor
Radical faithful, power pirates
Poets are, politics

Developed a theory
Widely known
Well it’s back
From Hell again
Actions and power
Syntax and sound text
Detail the players
Throwing javelins
Rode a typecast
To the mail hatch
What do you say?
Take some vitamins
Give him six inches
Maybe a pitchfork
Witness the power
Of the pendulum

12 - 7 - 19 - 2 - 8
Institute professor
Radical faithful, power pirates
Poets are, politics

12 - 7 - 19 - 2 - 8
Institute professor
Radical faithful, power pirates
Poets are, politics

There was a false claim
Even in Europe
Maybe because of what he said
For the last year
In the worst way
A tiny clique down in Washington

The Halcyon Brothers Minneapolis, Minnesota

Halcyon is a poetic name for a Kingfisher. It is said that the floating nest of the Halcyon brings calm to the cruel sea. The Halcyon Brothers decorate the weight of the world in a charming and medicated disguise. The sound embraces with a clinched smile, and then stumbles and occasionally falls only to somehow prop itself back up for another round. ... more
