‘Music’ from the Gutter, As America Sinks into Depravity

8 to 12 year olds are routinely exposed to songs with lyrics that are beyond despicable

Published

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the topic, there is some foul language below in the lyrics quoted. Some readers may be bothered by this language.

Of the many indicators of just how vulgar and depraved our society has become, below are lyrics excerpted from four songs that currently are among the top 10 hits on this week’s iTunes chart.

As you read them, keep in mind that 8 to 12 year olds are routinely exposed to such songs, and there is virtually no way to stop them from hearing such songs.

Lyrics from Peaches, Justin Bieber

I got my peaches out in Georgia (Oh, yeah, shit)
I get my weed from California (That’s that shit)
I took my chick up to the North, yeah (Badass bitch)
I get my light right from the source, yeah (Yeah, that’s it)

Lyrics from MONTERO, Call Me By Your Name, by Lil Nas X

I caught it bad yesterday
You hit me with a call to your place
Ain’t been out in a while anyway
Was hopin’ I could catch you throwin’ smiles in my face

Romantic talkin’? You don’t even have to try
You’re cute enough to fuck with me tonight
Lookin’ at the table, all I see is weed and white
Baby, you livin’ the life, but nigga, you ain’t livin’ right

I wanna sell what you’re buyin’
I wanna feel on your ass in Hawaii
I want that jet lag from fuckin’ and flyin’
Shoot a child in your mouth while I’m ridin’

Oh, oh, oh, why me?
A sign of the times every time that I speak
A dime and a nine, it was mine every week
What a time, an incline, God was shinin’ on me

Now I can’t leave
And now I’m actin’ hella elite
Never want the niggas that’s in my league
I wanna fuck the ones I envy, I envy

Lyrics from Kiss Me More, by Doja Cat

I, I feel like fuckin’ somethin’
But we could be corny, fuck it
Sugar, I ain’t no dummy, dummy
I like to say, “What if?”, but if

We could kiss and just cut the rubbish
Then I might be onto somethin’
I ain’t givin’ you one in public
I’m givin’ you hundreds, fuck it

Somethin’ we just gotta get into
Sign first, middle, last on the wisdom tooth
Niggas wishin’ that the pussy was a kissin’ booth
Taste breakfast, lunch, and gin and juice

And that dinner just like dessert too
And when we French, refresh, gimme two
When I bite that lip, come get me too
He want lipstick, lip gloss, hickeys too, huh

 

iTunes, Top 100, #10

Lyrics from Drivers License, Olivia Rodrigo

Red lights, stop signs
I still see your face in the white cars, front yards
Can’t drive past the places we used to go to
‘Cause I still fuckin’ love you, babe (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

Sidewalks we crossed
I still hear your voice in the traffic, we’re laughing
Over all the noise
God, I’m so blue, know we’re through
But I still fuckin’ love you, babe (ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh)

 

With NPR’s Approval

In 2020, National Public Radio, subsidized by American taxpayers, cited Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s song WAP (Wet Ass Pussy) as among the best songs of the year and included the song in its monthly “silver linings playlist.” Here are some excerpted lyrics:

Whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house
There’s some whores in this house (Hol’ up)
I said certified freak, seven days a week
Wet-ass pussy, make that pullout game weak, woo (Ah)

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, you fuckin’ with some wet-ass pussy
Bring a bucket and a mop for this wet-ass pussy
Give me everything you got for this wet-ass pussy

The Los Angeles Times called WAP a “delightfully raunchy hip-hop single.” Forbes breathlessly stated: “Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion claim the hottest record in the world right now with ‘WAP,’ their immensely catchy joint single that has caught the attention of millions in no time…”

Forbes continued: “It is extremely uncommon for any one cut to debut at No. 1 on double-digit lists, but that just speaks to the power of the song.”

A Despicable Message

What message do we offer to our children when anyone can write such lyrics, get their songs played, and perhaps, sell multi-millions of copies worldwide? What message do we convey when Cardi B interviews Joe Biden and then advises him on domestic policy?

What message do we convey to the other countries on Earth? As a culture, will we ever be able to retreat from this level of utter depravity?

The Dead Do Tell Tales

The words of Dr. William Maples, in describing typical suicide victims, are poignant

Published

on

It’s shame that the late Jeffrey Epstein, who allegedly hung himself, couldn’t have been examined by Dr. William R. Maples. Epstein’s body would have had a lot to say.

Poignant Words

Apart from the FBI subterfuge surrounding Epstein’s death, I found the words of Dr. Maples, in describing typical suicide victims to be poignant. Maples is a forensic researcher, diagnosing how and when people died. In his book, Dead Men Do Tell Tales, Dr. Maples, he writes, “Many of the skeletons that come into my laboratory belong to suicide victims who behaved like shy hermits in their final hours.”

“Usually they are found in remote places. People often go to some hidden place to kill themselves, whether from a desire to act alone and unhindered, or because they wish simply to disappear in solitude, spending their last moments in reflective silence.”

Would these people have killed themselves if they could’ve regularly attained reflective silence? Was their quest to die alone simply an ill-advised solution to the stresses they faced? How would their lives have been if they knew appropriate, reliable ways to find solace in the here and now, at home, at work, and everywhere in between?

Be True to Yourself

The masses take pills by the boatload. The masses race though their days. The masses, by and large, live lives of tension and turmoil. Stress has become the malady of the generation, and it’s better to not to follow the crowd.

Being true to yourself means doing what you need to do to stay healthy, balanced, and relaxed. It means having inner directedness. It requires drawing upon your knowledge, experience, and instinct to carve your own path; and to have less stress because you are less swayed by popular or prevailing norms. It is thinking and acting based on an ever-developing internal guidance system.

Being true to yourself means is learning what doesn’t work. You determine what is and is not relevant to you, and ultimately, what is and is not appropriate for you to stay in control of your day, every day, and of your life which could well extend for many decades.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.

If you’re having trouble listening to Joe for more than a minute, the tool above might work for you. On the Facebook site, “Best of the Web,” I saw this Biden bingo card. It could help you to stay the course when tuned into other broadcasts featuring our acting president.
