    Truly, 50 years ago, November 22, 1963. How can they know if they were born after 1958 or so, and don’t read about history or current events?

    Then this overflow of life is crushed into a liar
    The gentle soul is ripped apart and tossed into the fire.
    First a smile of rejection at the nearness of the night
    Truth becomes a tragedy limping from the light
    All the (canons|heavens) are horrified, they stagger from the sight
    As the cross is trembling with desire.
    They say they can’t believe it, it’s a sacreligious shame
    Now, who would want to hurt such a hero of the game?
    But you know I predicted it; I knew he had to fall
    How did it happen? I hope his suffering was small.
    Tell me every detail, for I’ve got to know it all,
    And do you have a picture of the pain?
    So dance dance dance
    Teach us to be true
    Come dance dance dance
    ‘Cause we love you
    Time takes her toll and the memory fades
    but his glory is broken, in the magic that he made.
    Reality is ruined; it’s the freeing from the fear
    The drama is distorted, to what they want to hear
    Swimming in their sorrow, in the twisting of a tear
    As they wait for a new thrill parade.

    Thanks, Radish, for reminding me of this powerful statement by Phil Ochs. There was a time when I knew the whole song by heart.

    Thanks for remembering Phil Ochs too… also killed by a bullet to the head (self inflicted). He was such a wonderful songwriter.

    Phil Ochs went to Africa and was beaten by a gang of thugs, possibly hired by our shadow government. He lost the ability to sing and hung himself in his kitchen.

    According to Wikipedia, Phil Ochs hanged himself.

    Thanks also, radish. I knew that song from a Glenn Yarbrough album. Loved that guy when I was in HS and college.
