Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Valor hath its bounds, as well as other virtues, which once transgressed, the next step is into the territories of vice, so that, by having too large a proportion of this heroic virtue... may unawares run into temerity, obstinacy, and folly.
- Montaigne, French Philosopher and Essayist (1533-1592)

The lyrics were never more relevant than they are today . . .

When the Shit Hits the Fan

in a sluggish economy
inflation, recession
hits the land of the free
standing unemployment lines
blame the government for hard time

we just get by
however we can
we all gotta duck
when the shit hits the fan

ten kids in a cadillac
stand in lines for welfare checks
let’s all leach off the state
gee! the money’s really great!

we just get by
however we can
we all gotta duck
when the shit hits the fan

soup lines
free loaves of bread
five pound blocks of cheese
bags of groceries
social security
has run out on you and me

we do whatever we can
gotta duck when the shit hits the fan

doobiddy do wop wop, say what? yeah

we just get by
however we can
we all gotta duck
when the shit hits the fan

soup lines
free loaves of bread
five pound blocks of cheese
bags of groceries
social security
has run out on you and me

we do whatever we can
gotta duck when the shit hits the fan
