It has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored
Up and down and round and round
And it's very loud
Don't worry, don't be afraid
It's just a ride
And we can change it any time we want
It's only a choice between fear and love
Why are we here?
I think we're part of a bigger wisdom
That we won't ever understand
A higher order - call it what you want -
Know what I call it?

Bill Hicks - It's Just A Ride
The World is like a ride in an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are.
And the ride goes up and down and round and round, and it has thrills and chills and is very brightly colored, and it's very loud.
And it's fun, for a while.
Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they've begun to question, 'Is this real, or is this just a ride ?', and other people have remembered, and they've come back to us and they say 'Hey, don't worry. Don't be afraid, ever, because this is just a ride.' and we KILL THOSE PEOPLE.
'Shut him up !
We have alot invested in this ride! SHUT HIM UP! Look at my furrows of worry. Look at my big bank account, and my family.
This just has to be real.'
It's just a ride.
But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that.
You ever noticed that ?
And let the demons run amok.
But it doesn't matter, because ... It's just a ride.
And we can change it anytime we want.
It's only a choice.
No effort, no work, no job, no savings of money.
A choice, right now, between fear and love.
The eyes of fear wants you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off.
The eyes of love, instead see all of us as one.
Here's what we can do to change the world right now, to a better ride:
Take all that money we spent on weapons and defense each year and instead spend it feeding, clothing, and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we can explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever
... in peace.
- Bill Hicks
'This country was founded by a group of slave owners who wanted to be.
Am I right ?
A group of slave owners who wanted to be free !
So they killed a lot of white English people in order to continue owning their black African people, so they could wipe out the rest of the red Indian people, in order to move west and steal the rest of the land from the brown Mexican people, giving them a place to take off and drop their nuclear weapons on the yellow Japanese people.
You know what the motto for this country ought to be ?
