Pawns Dancing (song)

(to Dave Matthews “Ants Marching”)

Don’t know where the thought for this one came from, no, wait, I DO know where the thought came from, it came from the same spot most of my parody tunes/musical opinion pieces come from … our everyday madness and the surreal state of things where rational thought has been just completely discarded for welcomed authoritarian leanings and profound ignorance, or flat out lies and fascist style propaganda. But the thought of the Dave Matthews tune itself? It just popped in head one day and seemed a good place to fill in those thoughts.

They wake up always grasping

At conspiracies of the big de-feat

That they say didn’t happen

Even with real truth so right-fully

Sitting

— 

Tinfoil hats gleam in the sun

One powered by the big lying orange one

And they all walk the same line

Like drunken lemmings’ nose to ass that cliff is just fine

— 

They take to their knees

Willing blind fealty

Tethered not reality

Indentured to cult

Blood oaths easily took

GOP share the same sign

New astrology for stars to now a-lign

In their own special lie sky

No other sky is right for stars now to a-light

— 

Take to their knees

Willing blind fealty

Tethered not reality

Indentured to cult

Blood oaths easily took

— 

He looks down from gold tower

Directs his masses to cower if ranks are broke

You must tow the company line

As truths are mine and your minds must keep time

— 

As all you little pawns keep dancing

Marionettes in my power play

Look to the stars for new king’s

Star’s shine to show you the right waaaaaaay

Orangeman controlling the thoughts

Of a party hopelessly lost

Watch his dogs cut back on the vote

With a bleak end, dark end cut the hope

And an end to an autocrat lend

Democracy pop 

You’re dead

Take to their knees

Willing blind fealty

Tethered not reality

Indentured to cult

Blood oaths easily took

…….

Blood oaths easily took
