Flowers In The Dirt

(Michael Facciani)

This lyric details the story of a hippy flower child from the 1960s who is stuck in that time period and never changes and adapts to the present day and ends up an anachronism in the eyes of now people in 2018.

Back in 1968 you lived the hippy dream Listening to Jimi Hendrix and Cream Today people scream and shout That ain’t really what life is about Youth is gone and you have little money Nobody now thinks it’s funny Tomorrow is not looking too sunny A black cloud hovers over you You don’t know what to do I see nothing but flowers in the dirt You can’t even afford a decent shirt What good is getting stoned on dope When there’s no longer a shred of hope Tie dies are way out of fashion Only for old things do you have a passion Your dreams and ambitions have gone up in smoke Most people see you as a joke XXX XXXXXX XX X XXXXXX XXX XXX XX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX XX XX XXXX XX XXXXXX XX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX

White Dopes On Punk

By Michael Facciani

This song is about serious, die-hard punk rock devotees who don’t want to hear anything else except their favorite, particular genre of music. There is a song called “White Punks On Dope” by The Tubes. Thought I’d rearrange the title and write my own lyrics for a different song.
