"Easy To Be Hard" was originally written for the musical Hair, another (in my opinion) "prayerful recreation of the spiritual zeitgeist of another era" and one in which the McKays seem to be in a sense stuck.
The sixties and seventies are long over, David. Your movement has escaped you.
Yeah, the bygone days of DM's half-baked fantasies of fame and "revolution" are long gone, but the music of that era is immortal. IMO some of the best music ever recorded was produced in the '60s and '70s. May I come along?
Would you like to come along? She asked me
Yes take me along right now
Hey baby, can I step into your world for a while?
Yes you can, she said
Come on back with me for a while
We're gonna go across the Jupiter sand and see all you people one by one
We gotta help you people out right now
That's why I'm doing it all about
Hey! Yeah, may I come along?
May I come along?
May I come along?
Please take me
Yeah, I once met a man that was involved in the COG/Family for many years and we sat down for coffee and some discussion. I was asking him all about his time with the group, how he met them, how he eventually left, all that kind of thing. This was a couple of years ago.
At one point I asked him if he knew anything about a man named Dave McKay and he just started cracking up laughing. He knew the name right away. "What a clown McKay is!" he says with a grin.
He told me that McKay'd been on the periphery, trying to steal Family disciples for years and that he was never taken very seriously. He told me that a lot of people in ex-Family circles know his name and he was largely thought of as a joke, a "wannabe." Then I showed him the whipping trial video in order to explain that McKay is actually a serious problem, and that sobered him up.
I'd tell you this man's Bible (Family) name but need to get his permission first. But I am telling you, it's a true story.
