I didn't actually plan on this one being political. I found the opening line on a note that I wrote a while ago on my phone and, when I thought of the third line, that set me up for the rest of the lyrics. I think it's fairly obvious what it's about!
Not a bad start this year, methinks. If I go back to develop this more, I think I'd expand on the different sections and probably replace the keyboard solo, as I pressed record and that's literally the first thing I played!
Are we doomed to entropy?
A dereliction of empathy
The man at the top just perplexes me
With slogans and his heartless ideology
Now he sees dollar bills
Why does the bottom line trump human life every time?
So welcome to the modern age
Where we lock children in a cage
Safe in the knowledge that we're doing God's work
His chosen people
His impervious agents on Earth
