Just Gimme Some Truth

One of the people who helped
us get this whole thing started — John Lennon of the Beatles
(who donated the song “Nowhere Man” to our
First Vibration
album) — probably made a case for the power of truth about as
well as it can be made. He wrote:

 

I’m sick and tired of hearing
things
from uptight, shortsighted, narrow-minded hypocrites
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

I’ve had enough of reading things
by neurotic, psychotic pig-headed politicians
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

No short-haired, yellow-bellied,
son of Tricky Dicky
is gonna Mother Hubbard soft-soap me
with just a pocketful of soap
Money for dope
Money for rope.

I’m sick to death of seeing
things
from tight-lipped, condescending, mama’s little chauvinists
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

I’ve had enough of watching
scenes
of schizophrenic, egocentric, paranoid prima donas
All I want is the truth
Just gimme some truth.

All I want is the truth.
Just gimme some truth.

–John Lennon

We liked the song and
the message it conveys — so much that we turned it into a poster
that we’ve got hanging up in our front offices. Check it out
some time, if you’re ever in Tempe. Heck, check it out now (just
click the “Let’s see!” button, below), if you’ve got
the Acrobat plug-in…
