It's Just a ride
by Bill Hicks

Is there a point to this? Let's find a point.

The world is like a ride at an amusement park
and when you choose to go on it it becomes real,
because that's how powerful our minds are.
The ride goes up and down and round and round
it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly coloured
and it's very loud and it's fun, for awhile.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time
and they begin to question, "Is this real, or is this just a ride?"
and other people have remembered and
they 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 a lot invested in this ride! Shut him UP!
Look at my furrows of worry! Look at my big bank account!
and my family! This has to be real."

It's just a ride.
But we always kill those good guys that try and
tell us that, have you noticed?
And let the demons run amock.
But it doesn't matter, because...It's just a ride.
And we can change it any time 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 want 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 spend on defense and weapons each year
and spend it on educating, feeding and clothing 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.
