    I stumbled upon a music video in the late 1980's by 10,000 Maniacs called "You Happy Puppet". It was a major turning point for me back then, in that I realized they was singin' about me and my relationship to LRH and scn. This 3 minute video was incredibly instrumental in opening my eyes that I was brainwashed......

    How did they teach you to be just a happy puppet dancing on a string? How did you learn everything that comes along with slavish funnery? Tell me something, if the world is so insane, is it making you sane again to let another man tug at the thread that pulls up your nodding head?
    How did they teach you to be just a happy puppet dancing on a string? How do you manage to live inside this tiny stage you can't leave? Tell me something, if the world is so insane, is it making you sane again to let another man tug at the thread that pulls up your nodding head? A dullard strung on the wire. When the master's gone you hang there with your eyes and your limbs so lifeless.
    How did they teach you to be just a happy puppet dancing on a string? How do you manage to speak, your mouth a frozen grin? A dullard strung on the wire. When the master's gone you hang there with your eyes and your limbs so lifeless.
    Tell me something, if the world is so insane, is it making you sane again to let another man tug at the thread that pulls up your empty wooden head? Your hollow head, your marble eyes, your wooden hands and your metal jaw pins all wait in limbo for the man who knows how to move you this way. by 10,000 Maniacs

    When I was on staff in the late '80s there was a song, but I don't recall the artist.

    It went; It's my life and I'll do what I want
    It's my mind and I'll think what I want.

    I couldn't stop it from going round in my head while I was on post.

    Wonder why...

    Welcome Xstaff!!

    There is an Animals song with that, which is too early, but here one that's close....
