Yeah, they call me a beatnik
I don’t really care
I won’t ever be like them…square
I have thoughts you know
About the earth and it’s care
I have tried to expand my mind
With whatever is there
My friends understand me
We all live together
We keep to ourselves and they call us a cult
We just want to survive and figure it out
War and protests, rights for all people
Don’t need to be in a place under some steeple
We respect your space and you should ours
As we speak our poetry in clubs in late hours
We just want peace, to travel around
Spread the word that the world isn’t sound
So call me a beatnik, whatever you choose
But respect the concepts, we have new ideas and views.
