    ...where mankind has learned to love. Where goods and services are exchanged for love instead of currency. Where our children are taught how to love one another. Where we can all sing. Where there are hugs instead of guns. Where we dance instead of fight. Where there is peace instead of war. Where we can love.

    Oh god do I pray... I pray everyday... For a revolution.

    That's just a dumb idea. The system we have is fundamentally flawed, but it works. Not only that, but we already exchange goods and services for love. It's called prostitution.

    Don't forget to inform us when you see a man learned to sneeze without blinking, too.

    I must've missed that. None of that shit is ever going to happen. A resource based economy sounds good but so does every economic system until people get involved in it. People are inherently evil. That old french bastard from the movie would be the first one to rape you all for the profits.

    Currency is necessary as we can't all be bartering things like cows for running water. Currency is necessary as it represents something that can not only be traded for a commodity, but also a service. The fiat system devalues our currency by simply saying our currency is worth something because we said so. Nixon was right in seeing the danger of having only the gold standard.

    However, he went the wrong way about it. Instead of dropping the gold standard, he should have currency be backed by a few commodities. My idea is that currency should be backed by gold, a few rare earth metals, energy (packets of electricity), and basic grains. I added the last two because those two things are necessary for human life so humanity can never forget where our real priorities lie.

    25 years and my life is still
    trying to get up that great big hill of hope
    For a destination
    I realized quickly when I knew I should
    That the world was made up of this
    Brotherhood of man
    For whatever that means
    And so I cry somethimes when I'm lying in bed
    Just to get it all out what's in my head
    And I'm, I am feeling a little peculiar
    So I wake in the morning and I step outside
    And I take deep breath and I get real high
    And I scream from the top of my lungs
    What's goin' on
    And I say hey....
    And I say hey what's goin' on
    And I say hey....
    I said hey what's goin' on
    Oooh....
    Oooh....
    And I try, oh my God do I try
    I try all the time
    In this institution
    And I pray, oh my God do I pray
    I pray every single day
    For a revolution
    And so I cry sometimes when I'm lying in bed
    Just to get it all out what's in my head
    And I'm, I am feeling a little peculiar
    So I wake in the morning and I step outside
    And I take deep breath and I get real high
    And I scream from the top of my lungs
    What's goin'on
    And I say hey...
    And I say hey what's goin' on
    And I say hey...
    I said hey what's goin' on
    And I say hey...
    And I say hey what's goin' on
    And I say hey...
    I said hey what's goin' on
    Oooh....

    The song itself is supposedly about the socio-political "institutions" that basically fuck everything up, from the eyes of a confused member of the working class, who see the world collapsing around him. He desperately cries out for help ("What's going on!?"), but no one hears him. He tells his fellow humans to come together for a revolution of LOVE. This, according to the speaker, would unfuck everything.
