White Boy

White Boy

from Chris Merritt:

Virginia Is For Hoverers (Part II) (2010)

A million species dead and I’m still here / But can I tough it out for one more year?

Try to keep moving, yeah / Got to keep it all moving, yeah / Try to keep it all moving, yeah / Try to keep it all moving

Hunting/gathering was my forte / But now I stare at flashing lights all day

We got to keep it all moving, yeah / Got to keep it all moving, yeah / Got to keep it all moving, yeah / You got to keep it all moving

Well maybe I’m not the one for you / I’m just a little white boy / I’m just a little white boy / I mean a little white boy

The times are changing / The times are changing / The times are changing

The Japanese laugh about the teenage girl / Aborigines laugh about their little world / the Germanese laugh about the bomb unfurled / Apaches laugh about the magic rain / while Yankees we laugh while going down in flame

Well maybe he’s not the one for you / I’m just a little white boy / Do you need a little white boy? / I’m just a little scared boy

The times are changing / The times are changing / The times are changing

Would you do me this favor, this favor, this favor? / Won’t you be my neighbor, my neighbor, my neighbor? / Would you do me this favor, this favor, this favor? / Won’t you be my neighbor, my neighbor, my neighbor, my neighbor, my neighbor?

I won’t be explicit about it, because I think that makes my songs much much lamer.

White Boy is the most sort of poetic and convoluded on VA 2, but it touches on evolution, and the difficulties of modern man as he gets more and more distant from his biological nature. It also touches on the evolution of races and racism in the human species (I read an amazing thing by Dawkins where he looked seriously at the genetic differences between race. As it is found that most racial-genetic differences are superficial – having to do with appearance – he tended to conclude that we have evolved superficial traits faster than any other species in history because of our evolution of culture. Culture and tribes and racism evolved as an important trait in humans, which may have led to explosive evolution of races. Racism – just another human morality issue that can be absolved by science).

I’m convinced that we are living as hunter/gatherers in denial. I would bet that most depression and mental illness has to do with living so far from our genetic roots. We are supposed to be a constantly-exercising, group-based, fresh-air-and-sunshine, never alone animal and we live as a sedentary, isolated, stressed, malnourished animal. Of course you’re going to freak out when your tiny tedious pixel machine doesn’t work the way you’ve been promised. Try to get a chimp to manipulate small symbols and gadgets all day and see if he’s happy driving home from work. In traffic. With crappy music on the radio.
