2. Cocks on Gay.com
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Looking at cocks on Gay.com Certainly seems the bomb,
But looking after several hours still Will make you really ill
Why would you do that? You ask. Well I will tell you the facts
Guys get bored and horny and they need to just relax, get up off their ass and cum!

You don’t need to spend hours ‘pon hours end, clicking on those little boxes with all those sorts of stiffs!
What about the life that waits for you? Where the hell are you?
Couldn’t you be going somewhere else instead of straight to hell?
Why would you do that? You ask. Well I will tell you the facts
Guys get bored and horny and they need to just relax, get up off their ass and cum!

It goes on an on: Cocks on Gay.com! Worshipping a less than higher god could really make you lost.
Why would you do that? You ask. Well I will tell you the facts
Guys get bored and horny and they need to just relax, get up off their ass and cum!

3. Battle Over Love
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Don’t look now but someone’s coming — Not just one but twos and threes!
They are gathering collectively, readying for the battle over territory of a little thing called Love.
And no matter what we say No matter what we do They may have their way with me and you.
But I hope that Cupid sees it And sharpens up the tip of his bloody arrows
Comes to shoot them down, down, down Until we’ve won the fight

You know I think these guys are cunning they look really really mad
like we don’t deserve to ever have what they have in Marriage
but we can not give this up no they can not take our love away
They have got the politicians Singing songs of moral rage
While we play the role of their decay watching Desperate Housewives while amidst the legal fray
We the People are dividing up the class of citizens Right before our eyes
And no matter what we say No matter what we do They may have their way with me and you.
But I hope that Cupid sees it And sharpens up the tip of his bloody arrows
Comes to shoot them down, down, down Until we’ve won the fight

Don’t look now but someone’s coming — Not just one but twos and threes!
They are gathering collectively, readying for the battle over territory of a little thing called Love.

4. Mr. Meth
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

You want to get experimental? Well, baby, that’s just fine
You want to smoke some meth and get undressed And have a really good time
for hours you have sex With people you don’t know
With half-connected souls that are dying to reach out and get just a little or a lot of yours.
So just come down!

Are we having fun yet? Ladies and Gentleman May I introduce to you
A long time member of the gay community, Without further ado, Mr. Meth!
Oh yes Coming of age every second Until the death Rears its ugly head

You want to get a little mental, Well, baby, that’s just fine
You want to smoke some meth and make a mess And have a really bad time, With people that you love
With your half-connected soul that is dying to reach out and get just a little or a lot of mine.
But not this time! Just Come Down!

Are we having fun yet? Ladies and Gentleman May I introduce to you
A long time member of the gay community, Without further ado, Mr. Meth!
Oh yes Coming of age every second Until the death Rears its ugly head

5. Waiting at the Clinic
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Was it you who said “I’m never gonna break your heart.” Well, you lied to me
And now I’m falling apart, thinking of things,
while I quietly and patiently wait at the clinic to see if I am clean.

Nevermind those little things, didn’t want to see, Let me leave them, leave them be
What becomes of me? What am I to do? What if I end up like you? What will I be if I am HIV positive?

What I’d like to do Is get up off this chair and run, Get away from here and ride off into the sun,
just like that boy In that childhood story of hope, Left with nothing but one grain of sand …

If I ever get Out of this old clinic alive I will be much better than I was at the time I first came by
Or the night when you said goodbye Or, of course, until the next time …

Was it me who said, “I’m never gonna be the same.” Well it’s in my head and now I’m playin’ the game.
Singing this song Hoping it will carry along All the time I’m sitting here waiting

Nevermind those little things, didn’t want to see, Let me leave them, leave them be
What becomes of me? What am I to do? What if I end up like you? What will I be if I am HIV positive?

6. Does Anyone Remember Harvey Milk?
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

just casually so I asked him “would you kindly see if you remember a man whose name was Harvey Milk
then casually so he tells me “no but wasn’t that some body you used do date in 2002”
no no no you’ve got it wrong you don’t remember him at all
Harvey Milk is the best thing since Martin Luther King, Jesus Christ and Buddha
no no no you’ve got it wrong you don’t remember him at all
Harvey Milk was a fighter and he lost his life for you and me

1978, Milk was murdered in San Francisco City Hall as was Mayor George Moscone through
this was a result of madness and jealousy from Danny White, who just couldn’t seem to take a fight
no no no you’ve got it wrong you don’t remember him at all
Harvey Milk is the best thing since Martin Luther King, Jesus Christ and Buddha
no no no you’ve got it wrong you don’t remember him at all
Harvey Milk was a fighter and he lost his life for you and me

so, now that you know we can begin to tell our friends & family that we still remember everything
just casually so ask them if they happen to know the tragedy of a man whose name was Harvey Milk
no no no you’ve got it wrong you don’t remember him at all
Harvey Milk is the best thing since Martin Luther King, Jesus Christ and Buddha
no no no you’ve got it wrong you don’t remember him at all
Harvey Milk was a fighter and he lost his life for you and me

7. We Got Problems (But We’re Doing OK)
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

Life goes on living with the ghosts of enormous wrongs Trying just to cope in a messed up world
Where everything is laced with pain –  Almost seems unbearable, Overwhelming and leaden with shame
Well it’s not impossible and it’s not so bad.

Often times, it’s easy to get buried Under the oppressions of the world,
Homing in on all the little things that feed on negativity. And we need some unity
Yes, we need to express our thoughts And we need to get together and agree to disagree Equally

Seems like life gets a bit lackluster In between the two extremities But that’s why Man inherited the music
So join me in this exploration Cause We Got Problems (But We’re Doing OK)
Even when the clouds darken the sky The power of music is willing to give it a try

Life goes on living with the ghosts of enormous wrongs Trying just to cope in a messed up world
Where everything is laced with pain – Almost seems unbearable, Overwhelming and leaden with shame
Well it’s not impossible and it’s not so bad

8.  The Revolution Will Be Live
Music by John Paul Sharp

Richard Nixon: My fellow Americans, I come before you tonight as a candidate for the Vice Presidency and as a man who’s honesty and integrity has been questioned. Now, the usual political thing to do when charges are made against you is to either ignore them or to deny them without giving details. I believe we’ve had enough of that in the United States, particularly with the present administration in Washington, D.C. To me, the office of the Vice Presidency of the United States is a great office and I feel that the people have got to have confidence in the integrity of the men who run for that office and who might obtain it. I have a theory too, that the best and only answer to a smear or to an honest misunderstanding of the facts, is to tell the truth. And that’s why I’m here tonight. I want to tell you my side of the case.

George W. Bush: After more than two centuries of American jurisprudence and in a millennia of human experience, a few judges and local authorities are presuming to change the most fundamental institution of civilization. Their actions have created confusion on an issue that requires clarity. On a matter of such importance, the voice of the people must be heard. Activist’s course have left the people with one recourse. If we are to prevent the meaning of marriage from being changed forever.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. So we have come to cash this check: A check that will give us, upon demand, the riches of freedom and the security of justice. We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time! To lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood — now is the time! To make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

9.  O’ For Christ’s Sake
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

O’ For Christ’s Sake, Give us the strength today – The Religious Right Wants us to leave tonight
The reason is clear, Because we are queer
They think we want to infest their families and give them AIDS and all that stuff
But we know Your love is the diamond in the rough

If we see tomorrow, Would You look after us, If on chance we stray From Your old beaten path?
This hate is so real We all should feel
Pain for those poor folks who want to keep us from our equal rights and all that stuff
But we know Your love is the reason we stay tough

We will always love You Even in times of need We look on to heaven Where we will be in peace
For on that day, we will sing praise
We will be joyful and nothing’s gonna stop our happiness and all that stuff
‘Cause we know Your love is the only way

The Religious Right Wants us to leave tonight O’ For Christ’s Sake Give us your strength today.

10.  Back to San Francisco
Music and Lyrics by John Paul Sharp

For just one night, You made me feel, You made me feel like, for a night, I’d come back home
Back to San Francisco …
Just one night, just one night …
