Micky Mouse spirituality and then there is the deep and transformative power of Authentic Spirituality. The difference between the two is like the difference between mud and gold, satan and god, and evil and good. One is arid, empty, shallow, and devoid of light; the other is deep, wide, and filled with glorious power of God/Consciousness/Creation. One, taught by church and university, enslaves; the other, taught by mystics and heretics, transforms and emancipates. One leads to down a path of death and destruction; the other leads up to the Promised Land. There's a fork in the road. Which one do you choose?

Any intermediate or advanced or LP student will recognize this song for what it is, a strong condemnation of the soul sucking, vampire System. On the nature of the System, Bob is quite clear. Notice also how he throws church and university into the mix. Have to say, I have to agree. Both church and university are involved in the construction and obfuscation of the System. .

We refuse to be
What you wanted us to be;
We are what we are:
That's the way (way) it's going to be. You don't know!
You can't educate I
For no equal opportunity:
(Talkin' 'bout my freedom) Talkin' 'bout my freedom,
People freedom (freedom) and liberty!
Yeah, we've been trodding on the winepress much too long:
Rebel, rebel!
Yes, we've been trodding on the winepress much too long:
Rebel, rebel!

Suckin' the children day by day, yeah!

Suckin' the blood of the sufferers, yea-ea-ea-ea-e-ah!
Building church and university, wo-o-ooh, yeah! -
Deceiving the people continually, yea-ea!

Look out now: they suckin' the blood of the sufferers (sufferers).

From the very day we left the shores (trodding on the winepress)
Of our Father's land (rebel),
We've been trampled on (rebel),
Oh now! (we've been oppressed, yeah!) Lord, Lord, go to...

Now we know everything we got to rebel
Somebody got to pay for the work
We've done, rebel.
