    Riddles by Joan Jett (Sinners album 2006)

    Talkin' heads are talkin'
    But listen to what they say
    How they sit in judgement
    An' claim to know the way
    If dreams can be dismembered
    An' our worth can be ignored
    Need a new direction
    Cause this one we can't afford

    There's bad stuff happening
    An' no one does a thing

    What can I do
    What can I say
    When they just speak at
    Us in riddles
    How can this be
    Why can't ya see
    That they just speak
    At us in riddles

    Got ourselves in trouble
    With no relief in sight
    Everyday is such a stuggle
    Cause they had to pick a fight

    How can this be happening
    Can't we do anything

    What can I do
    What can I say
    When they just speak at
    Us in riddles
    How can this be
    Why can't ya see
    That they just speak
    At us in riddles

    The peace is the war
    The rich are too poor
    An' they just speak at us in riddles
    How can this be
    Why can't ya see
    That they just speak at us in riddles
    We're stuck right in the middle

    Clear skies baby
    Healthy forests
    No Child Left Behind
    Wake up people

    Big Brother is watchin' you
    They're takin' all your rights away
    Don't claim that you represent me cause
    I don't believe a word that ya say

    What can I do
    What can I say
    When they just speak at
    Us in riddles
    How can this be
    Why can't ya see
    That they just speak
    At us in riddles

    Let's see through the riddles

    In honour of www.savebennypark.org/ to fight clandestine plans made by NDG Mayor Michael Applebaum, in a "measly" group of 10, to rezone Benny Park & move a proposed sports center from its original planned site on Benny Farm to the park.

    The rezoning was done last August while most NDG-ers were on vacation. Still, consultaions were not widely announced and citizens had no vote.

    I am in favour of having a sports & culture center in NDG, but not at the expense of losing more park space & potentially more later now that the zoning desgnation has been changed. The Save Benny Park group is actively working to take back our democratic rights. Last week Applebaum called citizens who registered for a referendum the "measly 129". I wonder why our mayor, who is a real estate agent, is making a decision about a such a huge green space with such great disdain for his constituents.
