Liars & Cheats



 Genre: Political

Get Flash to see this player.

Just the bare-bones acoustic and voice track of a cynical political tune I wrote before the run-up to the 2008 election. I actually recorded it with iMovie and just exported the audio to Garagebands, added a hall reverb and let it roll. It's November 2nd so I thought I'd dust it off and post it today.

Get ready people / It's time for the race
the horses are all at their gates
the odds have been set / so please come place your bets on the one you would trust with our fate

Well it don't really matter if you never choose / no matter the outcome you're still bound to lose because

Liars & Cheats & Harlots & Charlatans don't give a dams about what you might need
they're only concerned with their schemes and conspiracies, using your bet to serve their own greed

When the wolf starts to lie and the sheep start to cry / they both want you to live in fear
but they'll quiet down if we all stand our ground / it's the same bullshit every two years
Courage is doing what you think is right / no matter how many sheep want you to fight because

(Repeat Chorus w/ "..using your fear to serve their own greed")

Well don't, don't, don't get fooled again
No we won't, won't, won't get fooled again
Well maybe...

Well, don't hold your breathe while you hope for the best / your face will just turn red to blue
And don't you complain while you wait for a change because changes are waiting on you

Turn on your conscience from zero to one / drag them out from their rocks and into the sun because...(repeat chorus w/ "...using)

Well don't, don't, don't get fooled again
No we won't, won't, won't get fooled again
Well maybe (we'll be fine)

Loving it. I think I remember this from 2008 but this is really cool and really describes how I feel about Washington in general...

I love this, it has an almost medieval feel to it - love the vocal harmony forsooth and the lyrics are brilliant. You have picked one of my favourite subjects. A most enjoyable piece of music.

I've been writing music for over three decades but I never recorded most of it - mostly because of laziness. But the technology makes it a lot easier now so I can enjoy the process if not the result! I'm looking to get some feedback so I can learn ... [see more]
