lyrics

The cult of celebrity grew one thousand arms and legs
Became a cataclysmic crusade of likes and shares
Mocking the scientist, the artist, the humanitarian
In the name of the man on the street.

Did they mean to discard their health and security
To feed the poor bankers and weaponry builders
To clothe media moguls and big pharma gougers
To shut out the rest of the World?

And here we stand, bewildered and afraid
In the eye of the populist hurricane
Churning out statements to bolster the markets and our own fragile egos
Doing our best to avoid that awkward truth:

We broke the system and have no idea
How to put it back together or how to start anew

Who needs facts?
