"Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man." - Gandhi

IT AIN'T WHAT IT AIN'T (Mike Borok)

This fragile world’s like that blow-up thing
On my next-door neighbor’s lawn
Put a hole or two in it
No, you won’t see it no more
And that’s what they’ve done to the actual world
See it going, going, gone
I feel the same way that sucker’s gonna feel
When he opens his door

And it is what it is
But it ain’t what it ain’t
You can speak your mind in bright red spray paint
Just takes a pin to burst a bubble
Tell the truth, it’s gonna land you in trouble
The time is past to exercise restraint
Because it is what it is
But it ain’t what it ain’t

I guess I know what I think I know
‘Cause somebody told me so
When a fact is a fact, it's a fact
But they just dismiss it
When the idiots tip this precarious world
Into the bottomless abyss
It’s sure gonna make me sad, now
I think I’m gonna miss it

And it is what it is
But it ain’t what it ain’t
You can speak your mind signed in bright red spray paint
Just takes a pin to burst a bubble
Tell the truth, it’s gonna land you in trouble
The time is past to exercise restraint
Because it is what it is
But it ain’t what it ain’t

All secrets are witnessed
All motives exposed
I don’t know why they try to deny
What everybody knows

And it is what it is
But it ain’t what it ain’t
In times like these you don’t get to be a saint
Just takes a pin to burst a bubble
Stick it in, you cause a whole lot of trouble
The time is past to exercise restraint
Because it is what it is
But it ain’t what it ain’t
Yes, it is what it is
But it ain’t what it ain’t
