The Lyrics

It pains me sometimes when I hear the excuses of people not voting in an election. A privilege we have taken for granted can cost a heavy price in other parts of the world. People will even risk death to vote so what in hell is your excuse?
Far Side of Lazy

(Sung to "Far Side of Crazy" - Wall of Voodoo)

The Bilderburgs control things
The TriLats run the show
They control our full existence
This is the truth I know
My vote is but a waste of time
There are more important things
such as a new cell phone app
and a new set of phone rings

And I remain on the far side of lazy
Those who vote are the most foolish of all
But when they come here to enslave me
"It's all your fault!" You'll hear me bawl!

Reality Television
is my sole focus see!
It's the new bread and circuses
As fake as it can be
It's the Ego thats been brushed aside
while the Id is being fed
And long before the last tear's cried
our freedom will be dead

You remained on the far side of lazy
and also probably flunked Civics inside school
You might say "Hey, why did they enslave me?"
That's because you've been played for a fool!

My cell phone now controls me
and soon it may succeed
at diverting my attention
from governance and need
Here is some information!
Listen, pretzel head
Get informed and keep on voting
or our Republic will be dead!

Don't remain on the far side of lazy
Freedom lives through vigilance
Don't be of those who are enslaved, see
And perish from ignorance!

DKTOS, but 555ing you just the same for the shared sentiment. The millenials (and did better in the voting this time around (18-24 YOs voted more in Illinois than the baby boomers!), but there is still room for improvement.
