BandPopPunk

Power Punk/Pop meets lyrics and themes with a twist. Sounds like The Atari's/Blink 182 meet Weezer, Bob Dylan and Viagra...

Biography

Rad Thought is a side project of The Radical Thought Resistance focusing on unexplored areas of Power Punk/Pop. The band has two "flagship" songs; "Breakfast With Condi", a satirical love song about NSA Condoleeza Rice and "Midlife Tragedy", a sad tale about a Punk Rocker approaching midlife and doesn't realize it until it's too late.

Lyrics

Midlife Tragedy

Written By: Howard Alper/Kee Chung

Looked in the mirror today
Can't believe what was there
A pot bellied alien
With receding hair
Oh my god, what happenned to me?

Went to the local dive
Saw a girl check me out
Went up to talk to her
That's when I heard her shout
Oh my god, you look just like my dad...

Where did it all go wrong?
This wasn't meant to be
A Midlife Tragedy
Please tell me it's a dream
And not reality
'Cause I don't understand
Who is this old man?

Turned on the radio
Heard my favorite song
Wait, what the hell is this?! Something's wrong
Oh my god,
Someone sampled Train In Vain

Where did it all go wrong?
This wasn't meant to be
A Midlife Tragedy
Please tell me it's a dream
And not reality
'Cause I don't understand
I Don't Understand

I used to be the man
I used to be the man

Standing in the pouring rain
Saw my ex-girlfriend
She got three kids at home
And a brand new 'Benz
Oh my god, what happenned to me?

Where did it all go wrong?
This wasn't meant to be
A Midlife Tragedy

Please tell me it's a dream
And not reality
This can't be happenning
Where did it all go wrong?
This wasn't meant to be
A Midlife Tragedy
Please tell me it's a dream
And not reality
'Cause I don't understand

Who the hell is this old man?

Breakfast With Condi

Written By: H.Alper/A.Ishibashi

I never really knew
How distractive you were
Till I watched you on the tube
As you testified
I think the reasons clear
Why your always by his side

All the papers say
That you dropped the ball Still you claim you had no clue at all

Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi
My life will never be the same…

I know that I’m a dove
Yet I’ve got to see you
I’m hopelessly in love
With a Neo-Con
I know a quiet spot
Where we could spend some time

You can open up to me
I won’t tell a soul
About you covert policies
Of terror control
And I don’t really mind that your lying all the time

Now the papers say
That you’ve hit a wall
Who'll be there to catch you when you fall

Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi

Mmmm, now that's what I'm talking 'bout
Let yourself go girl!
What was that? You want me to be your lapdog?
I knew you liked to dominate but this is more than I bargained for! Oh my God!!!!

Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi Breakfast With Condi

I never thought Rice could be this nice She never made love to a Dove…
