about

This song was written during the 2012 presidential election, and was initially inspired by the candidacy of a certain zillionaire who seemed to think he was entitled to the job as a kind of birthright. I was also thinking about the long tradition of arrogant robber-barons running things in our naive ol' republic. Now, in the run up to the 2016 election, it seems just as topical as it did last time around.

lyrics

Dig a hole, out there somewhere
Where no one’s watching, and no one cares
The things we need, don’t come easy
It takes the steady hand, of a ruthless man

And when the suckers come
You make ‘em pay for the privilege
Yapping for mama’s milk like
A nation of little babies

Take this big fat, pile of money
Build yourself a nice new library
Just let me sleep already

Let me sleep
Let me sleep
Let me sleep

Oh captain, lead us on
Through the mountains, through the fog
It takes a pile of money, to get things done
It takes a lot of gumption, to be the one

Who takes his pile of money
And tries to run this whole damn country
If we can’t trust you, big daddy
Who will guard our piles of money?

So we can sleep
So we can sleep
So we can sleep
