Give Stupidity a Chance

(Tennant Lowe)

Intelligent people
Have had their say
It's time for the foolish
To show the way

Let's lead this world a merry dance
Let's give stupidity a chance

We've heard quite enough
Of experts and their dealings
Why face the facts
When you can just feel the feelings?

Let's lead this world a merry dance
Let's give stupidity a chance

Forget political correctness
I mean, W-T-F
I don't wanna think about the world
I wanna talk about myself

Instead of governing
With thoughtful sensitivity
Let's shock and awe the world
With idiotic bigotry

Let's lead this world a merry dance
And give stupidity a chance

You say corruption
I say justified reward
Keeps the cronies loyal
Chairmen of the board

Let's lead this world a merry dance
And give stupidity a chance

Forget political correctness
Let's talk man to man
Chicks are always up for it
You gotta grab whatever you can

We need a leader who knows
That money means class
With an eye for a peach-perfect
Piece of ass
Not a total dumb-cluck
Just one of the guys
Let's give stupidity a prize

Let's lead this world a merry dance
And give stupidity a chance
Let's give stupidity a chance

On Social Media

(Tennant Lowe)

When you care about the issues of the day
And check your facts on Wikipedia
You can and get into an argument right away
If you're on social media
The world is changing everywhere
With a speed that couldnt be speedier
But you feel so ahead of the curve
When you're on social media

When you're on
Social media
When youre on
Social media
When you're on
Social media
When you're on
Social media

You're part of the conversation
You're there in every debate
From football to religion to contemporary art
You're ready to pontificate

While democracy is losing its way
And greed is getting greedier
Console yourself with a selfie or two
And post them on social media

When you're on
Social media
When you're on
Social media
When youre on
Social media
When youre on
Social media

My likes are in the thousands
My tweets are being retweeted
My family pics or holiday snaps
With total love are greeted

It's so nice when people like you
Youre feeling hashtag blessed
You're part of the conversation
It's like you passed the test

When you're on
Social media
When youre on
Social media
When you're on
Social media
When you're on
Social media

And sometimes you can fuel the debate
By biting the hand that feeds ya
Expressing pure anonymous hate
When you're on social media

When you're on
Social media
When you're on
Social media
When you're on
Social media
When you're on
Social media

(I feel so empowered)

What Are We Going to Do About the Rich?

(Tennant Lowe)

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

They say democracy is simply very bad for business
While deploring student protests in the middle of Hong Kong
They insist that people have to work on zero contracts everywhere
So profit margins grow and shares are very strong
But one group that they never take to task
And one question that they never seem to ask is:

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

They're buying football clubs today with absolute impunity
And so much of the media to give themselves the power
To destroy the very notion and the feeling of community
While poisoning the public discourse hour by hour
But although it never seems to make it into Hansard
The question at some point must still be answered, oh

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

Theyre avoiding paying taxes
While the welfare state collapses
Their extravagance and arrogance
Their lack of checks to balance this
Their lawyers and their attitude
The scale of their ingratitude
They only give to charity
For maximum publicity

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
What are we gonna do about the rich?
Come on, well come on!

The Forgotten Child

(Tennant Lowe)

Where is the child, does anyone know?
She's been forgotten, when did she go?
The times are brutal, borders are crossed
Where is the child? The child is lost

Where is the child? Someone must know
Who saw her last, why did she go?
We were under attack, reaching rock bottom
That was our focus, the child was forgotten

It's an open secret, we spread and react
And if it's not true then the rumors are fact
Although she may have been sometimes forgotten
There's no suggestion she was misbegotten

She was our reason, our religion, our cause
Our best excuse for emergency laws
Invoked so often to explain and subdue
The forgotten child from whom we all grew

Child of our nation, our icon, our future
Gone from our records, I'm no computer
The times are brutal, borders are crossed
I think she took flight, and now we're all lost

Where is the child?
Where is the child?
The times are brutal, borders are crossed
Where is the child? The child is lost

Where is the child?
Where is the child?
