The village idiot takes the throne
His the wind in which all must sway
All sane people, die now
Be lifted up and carried away
Youve got no home in this world of sorrows'

Theres a parasite feeding on
Everybodys bag of rage
What goes out returns again
To smite the mouth and burn the page
Under the rain of all our dark tomorrows

I can see in the dark its where I used to live
I see excess and the gaping need
Follow the money see where it leads
Its to shrunken men stuffed up with greed
They meet and make plans in strange half-lit tableaux

Under the rain of all our dark tomorrows

Youve got no home in this world of sorrows

How's that Biden working out for you?
inflation/stagflation, shortages, pissed off the allies more than Trump, and has our enemies laughing and now decides the Constitution is meaningless. 
but hey, no mean tweets

You're just mad, because your name is spelled like the symptom of an STI. 
 The common pronunciation of his last name in the UK ignores the "ck". The British have many odd surname  pronunciations. For instance, Cholmondley is "chumly", Beauchamp is  "beecham." 

 ghoti is pronounced fish - gh as in cough, o as in women and ti as in nation...

Listening to those lyrics brought out some memories in me that will never be forgotten. I think at that time I was the village idiot. I felt like I owned the world once I made it past high school. This world has a way of humbling everyone. At least with time I have come to appreciate good music. To enjoy such music, especially ones that are full of highs and lows, you need one of the best speakers. The good thing is that currently we have exceptional Bluetooth speakers. I read the reviews and was able to get a speaker where I can enjoy music on  the beach or by the pool as me and my family are relaxing.

Love the frogs in the background - can hear at least two African species Kassina senegalensis and Phrynomerus bifasciatus.

The lyrics are every bit as relevant today as they ever were.  Scary world.
I like it.
Dunno if there is Bruce Cockburn`s song that I don`t like

Agreed. Fantastic!
 

at all times verify the specs of particular person bits earlier than you employ them. Utilizing the fallacious gear can injury your equipment and your workpiece.

He's an amazing guitarist. And poet.

Bruce Cockburn has always, since my first hearing, been ... well ... completely boring.
A yawnfest on Quaaludes.
PSD even after giving BC another try ... I just can't do it, man ... I can't.
It's just too thp-p-p-p-p-p-p  
In my opinion everything Bruce Cockburn ever done was done already before him and was done better by someone else. Sorry. 3.

I am so blessed to have truly understood the beauty of Cockburn's music upon first hearing it. I was 19 and was spending the summer in Camden Maine and the girl I was spending time with played Cockburn for me. I had never heard music like that and I was an instant fan. After really getting to know Cockburn through his music I found that we have many other similarities. He's like a friend I have yet to meet.
 
Thanks to the PSD feature I got to this page and love this !
What a beautiful story. And what a nice feeling, a friend yet too meet.

Do you kiss your mother with that mouth? Is your use of vulgarity a reflection on your upbriging or just your lack of education?
Way to much rotation on that one RP !!
I thought I heard Emmylou's voice in there seems Jackson Browne and her did backing vocals on the album
Neither Bruce\'s best nor his worst...somewhere in-between. :??:

I feel the same way. I like hearing this now and then in Paradise. (This is part of a really great set of programming wonderfully thought out. Bravo RP :clap: )
Gosh, I really like Bruce Cockburn\'s work and own a number of his CD\'s, he\'s a wonderful musician, plays a great guitar and is a haunting songwriter but sometimes I wish he\'d lighten up a bit. Prehaps he needs some looser fitting pants, he sounds so uncomfortable! :lol:

this song wears me out :roll:

Sorry, I can't help you. To me, this is quintessential mediocrity. I really don't see what the attraction is with this guy. Makes me wonder if I fell from another planet with different musical sensibilities, but I'm comforted that I'm not the only one.
I'm suprised how low this is rated at RP. Seems perfect for the station. It must be good because I've heard it a lot here and I still like it.
Exquisite voice? Please. I can't stand his droning, ennui-laden affectations.
NB: Using "ennui-laden" in a review should not be considered affectation.

To each their own. :)
Nice cut..Not marginal at all. Standout.
There's a LOT of nice Bruce Cockburn music out there. No need to play THIS marginal tune. :rolleyes:

It\'s so great to hear an artist with such consistency. It\'s been years since this guys has done something bad
Hey, I like this song. I\'ve never really listened to this singer before. Reminded me of Beck at first (no offense meant to long-time Cockburn fans out there.)
