Get Your Motor Running

by Lori Hoeck on April 4, 2014

(LYRICS)

Been found out?
Been found wanting?
Get up; wake up;
get your motor running.

It’s never too late,
never too far.
Redirect your path;
Find the North Star.

They said “Hope and change”
–we got short-changed.
Doesn’t mean we have to like it.

They say “shared sacrifice”
–meaning “government heist.”
Doesn’t mean we can’t fight it.

History’s created
each minute, each day.
Get hands dirty,
make your mark, have your say.

Kick no more cans
down the progressive road.
Follow through,
get a clue, clear the queue.

It’s never too late,
never too far.
Redirect your path;
Find the North Star.

Verbal Dark Arts

by Lori Hoeck on April 4, 2014

(LYRICS)

Lies fly by and drive the media script,
As politicians tighten their verbal grip.
No truth can be told unless twisted apart.
No facts allowed in this blackest of arts.

With political correctness, the elite decide,
What sayings are good or to be tossed aside.
Thoughts are controlled with equal guilt–
They hope independence will weaken and wilt.

(chorus)
Stop the lie: You can legislate behavior.
Stop the lie: Government is savior.
Stop the lie: You can force another’s thoughts.
Stop the lie: We can’t call our own shots.

Words matter, especially when banned;
Those who control them understand.
Give ‘em an inch, they’ll torch a mile.
Look beyond their parental smile.

The truth matters, especially when rare.
Don’t let the “deciders” tell you they care.
Find what’s behind the sound bite haze.
Fight their dark arts with truth set ablaze.

(chorus)
Stop the lie: You can legislate behavior.
Stop the lie: Government is our savior.
Stop the lie: You can force another’s thoughts.
Stop the lie: We can’t call our own shots.

Rebels in the Coffeehouse

April 3, 2014

(LYRICS)
Take a stand against command & controllers,
Holier than thou chokers, smoke blowing posers.
They pout ‘N shout, creating doubt,
Pushing buttons so you can’t log out.
The system, the machine, the progressive dream
Streams from a narcissistic regime
As it builds a compliant, victim-filled team.
Take a stand against command & controllers,
Holier than thou chokers, smoke blowing posers.
They manufacture crisis with [...]

Criminalizing Freedom

September 30, 2013

Criminalizing Freedom
You know you want it
You know it’s true
You know you love it
When others think for you.
“The name’s BLOOMBERG — I’ll help you out
“I’ll put the ring firmly in your snout
“‘Cause I got all the power and the riches
“To make you all my collective bitches.”
Rounded up just like a herd
Fenced in, branded, made to serve
Told [...]

Here’s a set of lyrics against SOPA
Let the Buffalo Roam
by Lori Hoeck
Micro-managers be gone!
No more regulatory chains.
The internet’s ours–
a new frontier for our brains.
Don’t let them in
“Keep your grubby paws off!”
When government steps in
There’s more red tape than trade-off.
Entrepreneurs must be free
—products speak for themselves.
Don’t let bureaucrats guarantee
progress remains on the shelf.
I’m don’t want a [...]

The Judgment
———

Somewhere in the near future

“Trent Johnston, stand.”
The community judge’s voice filled the sweat box of a room, chilling Trent to the bones. He’d heard the tone before — the arrogant voice of someone trying to squeeze their viciousness and bullying into overly kind words. Appearance always mattered more than truth in the [...]

Serendipity aplenty

February 9, 2010

Serendipity can power some amazing things in our lives, especially when we have to pinch ourselves to believe how wonderful a turn of events can become.

Powerful ebook on dealing with narcissists

January 26, 2010

Have you ever been so perplexed by a relationship that it drove you crazy? Perhaps you are in one right now.
Do you feel like you’re the one who is always wrong?
Do attempts to set boundaries only meet with disdain and anger?
Are new suggestions shot down or sabotaged?
Do attempts to withdraw from the relationship create more [...]
