Geck-o - You're A Wizard, lyrics


ad
- Hey Geck-o, what's your new track about?
- Well, I found a quote on the internet
It's by Alan Moore
- Oh, I know him
He's a wizard
- He's a wizard?
Well, that could very well be
As he speaks about magic
- Here we go

I believe that magic is art and that art
Whether it be writing, music, sculpture, or any other form is literally magic
The science of manipulating symbols, words, or images
To achieve changes in consciousness
The fact that in present times, this magical power has degenerated
To the level of cheap entertainment and manipulation, is, I think a tragedy
At the moment the people who are using shamanism and magic
To shape our culture are advertisers
Rather than try to wake people up, their shamanism is used
As an opiate to tranquilize people, to make people more manipulable
Their magic box of television, and by their magic words
Their jingles can cause everyone in the country to be thinking the same words
And have the same banal thoughts all at exactly the same moment
In latter times I think that artists and writers
Have allowed themselves to be sold down the river
They have accepted the prevailing belief
That art and writing are merely forms of entertainment
They're not seen as transformative forces
That can change a human being, that can change a society
They are seen as simple entertainment
Things with which we can fill 20 minutes, half an hour
While we're waiting to die
It's not the job of the artist
To give the audience what the audience wants
If the audience knew what they needed
Then they wouldn't be the audience
They would be the artists
It is the job of artists to give the audience what they need

They're not seen as transformative forces
That can change a human being, that can change a society
They are seen as simple entertainment
Things with which we can fill 20 minutes, half an hour
While we're waiting to die

It's not the job of the artist
To give the audience what the audience wants
If the audience knew what they needed
Then they wouldn't be the audience
They would be the artists
It is the job of artists to give the audience what they need
