Boulevard of Spoken Schemes

The more I listen to Sen John McCain speak on the campaign trail, the more I am convinced that he’s full of shit. Or demented. Or both. And when he talks, he talks a shitload of lies and revisions of history, especially his own. So, for example, does he favor more regulation of the stock markets and greater oversight, or is he still “fundamentally, a de-regulator”? Here is Green Day’s “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” to help me say it better. And, as always, thank you, Jane for your help.

Boulevard of Spoken Schemes
Original words and music, “Boulevard of Broken Dreams” by Green Day, 2004
Additional lyrics by Wayne A. Schneider, 2008.

I talk a phony ‘load
The only kind that I have ever known
Don’t know if it shows
But it’s fun for me and I talk a ‘load

I talk this empty streak
On the Boulevard of Spoken Schemes
Where the country weeps
And I’m the phony one and I talk a ‘load

I talk a ‘load
I talk a ‘load
I talk a ‘load
I talk a…

My shadow’s Phony Joe that talks beside me
My shallow heart’s the phony thing that’s speaking
Sometimes I wish some facts out there will find me
‘Til then I talk a ‘load

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah,
Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I’m talking ’bout a line
That defines me somewhere in my mind
The disordered kind
On the edge is where I talk a ‘load

Read between the lines
I’m fucked up and everything’s a fight
Check my vital signs
To know I’m still alive and I talk a ‘load

I talk a ‘load
I talk a ‘load
I talk a ‘load
I talk a…

My shadow’s Phony Joe that talks beside me
My shallow heart’s the phony thing that’s speaking
Sometimes I wish some facts out there will find me
‘Til then I talk a ‘load

Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Ah-ah, Aaah-ah
Ah-ah, Ah-ah

I talk a ‘load
I talk a…

I talk this empty streak
On the Boulevard of Spoken Schemes
Where the country weeps
And I’m the phony one and I talk a ‘load

My shadow’s Phony Joe that talks beside me
My shallow heart’s the phony thing that’s speaking
Sometimes I wish some facts out there will find me
‘Til then I talk a ‘load
