The Lyrics

Ignore obvious warnings ’cause they’re sleeping and snoring;
the scene isn’t really too pretty.
At HHS there’s a schmuck, inept crony—WTF?!
One of the losers in this city.

They say that things are fine; but on all of us they shine.
Fools are left ’cause experts are sent away.
No precautions were deployed; now the bullsh*t’s unalloyed:
The problem’s gonna be solved any day.

A bunch of vacant, careless nitwits, who all say
vacant careless bullsh*t every day.
Claque o’ vacant, lazy dimwits who just shine
crazy, lazy bullsh*t, jerking overtime—jerkoffs.

It’s Newspeak that's the scum mission: lie us into submission,
through the Orangetan that bellows.
Truth’s dominion is afar; to dolt minions he’s a star;
he’s surrounded by slavering lapdog fellows.
You’re not a worshipping one, your tenure will soon be done;
facts must not see the light of day.
Keep the BS unalloyed, diurnally deployed.
They do no work yet collect their pay.

A bunch of vacant, lazy nitwits, who all bray
vacant careless bullsh*t every day.
Claque o’ vacant, lazy dimwits who just shine
up the craven bullsh*t, smirkin’ overtime—smirkoffs.

Ignore obvious warnings ’cause they’re too busy whoring,
like nearly all in this swamp city.
“In charge” now: a white-haired schmuck—once again, we’re out of luck.
Sub-pale-pate: empty pit; no pity.

It’s more BS time; I thought God don’t take a shine
to hypocrites who as Christians just play.
So this phony is deployed to silence those who’d employ
truth, because markets might have a bad day.

Another craven, vacant dimwit is in play…
craven fakin’ Chris’ bit: spin Ave.
Craven fakin’ Christian who don’t mind
takin’ care of fib fest…
a jerkoff, the worst kind.

Vacant, careless dimwits, fools,
lazy vacant, nitwits,
vacant, careless, idjits,
craven, careless dimwits,
craven, lazy nitwits have their day,
vacant, craven idjits bray and bray
crazy, lazy nitwits, who just shine
up the craven bullsh*t…scourge of overt crime.
Fakin’ craven Christians,
takin’ care of fib fest,
wasteful, tasteless idjits,
craven braying dimwits….
