lyrics

i was a marxist, i was a buddhist
i studied hindu with some important guru
as existential as a pencil
philosophical rants and some bellbottom pants
now penny loafers and an oxford
i studied politic at dartmouth and harvard
under my oxford, a punk t-shirt
to cover up the scars from my rowing accident

*ask not what your country will do for you
or they’ll do ya, do ya, do ya, do ya

i led the dea, i led the nsa
i was the manager of c + a and billy ray
you say i’ve changed now, what can i say
when shit rolls down hills you just have to move away
pot smoking days now, mistake of my youth
i get my kicks now on tylenol and prostitutes
and revolution, that was a dream
and a dream’s not a dream if you don’t know what it means

*

i’m doing 20 years for something toxic
they’ll tar and feather you for the smallest bullshit
like selling bunk stocks to the aged
they just don’t understand what this country’s always meant
i’ve been to hollywood, i’ve been to brentwood
i’d sell my mother for a pot of gold
but i can’t do that, she’s just too old
so i’ll sell a bunch of other things that’ve already been sold

*

about

mint mind Hamburg, Germany

mostly fuzzy and sometimes trippy,
always with a foot in the annals of indie

2 guitars and drums from hamburg germany,
with as many folds as a book of origami

middle aged folks who still know how to play,
a good rhyme from mint mind will brighten up your day
