Camper Van Beethoven/Cracker

So just be glad you live in America...
Just relax and be yourself.
'Cause if you didn't live here in America,
You'd probably live somewhere else.

Called my mom from a pay phone,
said I'm down to my last...
She said I sent you to college,
now go call your dad.

What the world needs now is a new kind of tension
cause the old one just bores me to death.
What the world needs now is another folk singer
like I need a hole in my head.

This here's a government experiment
and we're driving like hell...
to give some cowboys some acid,
and to stay in motels.

We're gonna eat up some wide open spaces
just like it was a cruise on the Nile.
Take the hands off the clock,
we're gonna be here a while...

Christmas Card for Southern California

"Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace." -Gautama Buddha

"One day we must come to see that peace is not merely a distant goal that we seek, but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal. We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means." -Martin Luther King Jr.

"We must be prepared to make heroic sacrifices for the cause of peace that we make ungrudgingly for the cause of war. There is no task that is more important or closer to my heart." -Albert Einstein

"Peace will come wherever it is sincerely invited." -Alice Walker

"Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of creative alternatives for responding to conflict." -Dorothy Thompson

"One little person, giving all of her time to peace, makes news. Many people, giving some of their time, can make history." -Mildred Lisette Norman
