Transcript of Untitled Prezi

At the Bottom of Everything So there was this woman... And she was on an airplane and she's...flying to meet her fiance... sailing high above the largest ocean on planet Earth. And she was seated next to this man, who, and...you know, she had tried to start conversation and...only, really, the only thing she heard him say was his...to order his Bloody Mary. And she was sitting there and she was reading this really arduous magazine article about a third world country that she couldn't even pronounce the name of and...she was feeling very bored and very despondent. And then, suddenly there was this huge mechanical failure and one of the engines gave out, and they started just falling thirty-thousand feet... And the pilot's on the microphone and he’s saying “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, oh my God... I'm sorry” and apologizing. And he looks at her and he says “We’re going to a party. It’s a birthday party. It’s your birthday party. Happy birthday darling. We love you very, very, very, very, very, very, very much.”
And then he starts humming this little tune, it kind of goes like this: We must talk in every telephone, And in the face of every criminal
Strapped firmly to a chair We must stare, we must stare, we must stare! And into the ear of every anarchist That sleeps but doesn't dream We must sing We must sing While my mother waters plants My father loads his gun. "...returned to the lonesome ocean." Then they splashed into the deep blue sea! It was a wonderful splash! We must blend into the choir, sing as static with the whole. He says, "Death will give us back to God, "Just like the setting sun is... We must sing We must rip out all the epilogues from the books that we have read! **Not if you were in the plane... We must blend into the choir, sing as static with the whole. And in this endless race for property and privilege to be won... We must run, we must run, we must run! We must hang up in the belfry where the bats and moonlight laugh. We must stare into a crystal ball Oh my morning's coming back,
The whole world's waking up! IS THIS WHY? DO THEY HAVE SCHOOL?? RIDE THE HIPPOS...?! I'm happy just because... I found out I am really no one. SOME STUFF I DIDN'T KNOW... WHAT'S AN ANARCHIST?
an·ar·chist
noun
1. a person who advocates or believes in anarchy or anarchism.
an·ar·chy
noun
1. a state of society without government or law. "WE MUST MEMORIZE NINE NUMBERS AND DENY WE HAVE A SOUL"
WHAT'RE THE NINE NUMBERS? A social security number. The line is an analysis of society saying the government doesn't respect us as people and that we're just jobs, pedestrians, homeowners, mortgages etc. No feelings. That. WHY DOES BRIGHT EYES CALL HIMSELF THAT WHEN HIS REAL NAME IS CONOR OBERST? It's the title of an Art Garfunkel song. Conor uses it as his stage name. We must take all of the medicines too expensive now to sell. Set fire to the preacher who is promising us SIIIIIING! We must memorize nine numbers and deny we have a soul. What is a Bloody Mary? Now let's get started. You'll need: 1. A green pen/marker 2. A pink highlighter 3. A blue highlighter 4. A blue pen 5. A red pen We must talk in every telephone
Get eaten off the web
We must rip out all the epilogues
From the books that we have read
And in the face of every criminal
Strapped firmly to a chair
We must stare, we must stare, we must stare We must take all of the medicines
Too expensive now to sell
Set fire to the preacher
Who is promising us Hell
And in the ear of every anarchist
That sleeps but doesn't dream
We must sing, we must sing, we must sing. It'll go like this:
While my mother waters plants
My father loads his gun
He says, "Death will give us back to God
Just like the setting sun
Is returned to the lonesome ocean." And then they splashed into the deep blue sea! It was a wonderful splash. We must blend into the choir
Sing as static with the whole
We must memorize 9 numbers and
Deny we have a soul
And in this endless race for property
And privilege to be won
We must run, we must run, we must run We must hang up in the belfry where the
Bats and moonlight laugh
We must stare into a crystal ball
And only see the past
And in the caverns of tomorrow
With just our flashlights and our love
We must plunge, we must plunge, we must plunge And then we'll get way down there, way down to the very bottom of everything and we'll see it, oh we'll see it, we'll see it! Oh, my morning's coming back
The whole world's waking up
All the city buses swimming past
I'm happy just because
I found out I am really no one. At the Bottom of Everything Bright Eyes I'm Wide Awake It's Morning And only see the past In the caverns of tomorrow (symbolism) (verse) (rhyme) (repetition) (refrain) (Snily. Always.) I'm terrified of realtors! THANKS FOR WATCHING! BUT we're not done.
