Video of the Day…Makin’ It Great Again! by Andrew St. James


The signs of false commitment
Stand high among the turn pike states
The season of resentment
Is alive inside the looming fate
With visions of the violence standing silent & unheard
Forces of indictment turning actions into words
& as the institutions fail
With pride that will not prevail
With prejudice all veiled no longer

The tides of new direction
Are headed backwards on the run
The masters of correction find their logic is undone
With The tenant of entertainment
Standing guard over perceived travails
The masses of atonement take their vision off the rails
& as the television fails
To incite proceeding sales
A light to countervail, no longer

The students of the sales force are pre chosen their own choice
The slaves to advertisement are provided with their own voice
With domestic apparitions standing silent along the way
The doctrine of decision set the options left to take
& as our union falls
While they’re breaking down the walls
The tenements stand tall here, forever

The motions for confusion are held up at the appellate court
The tokens of true knowledge are only used at last resort
While the jesters of pretension juggle violently In haste
The auctioned off elections outshine tradition now erased
& as the new day dawns
With exploitation of the bomb
We’re righting all the wrongs, no longer

The union of indifference
Breaks down the old facade
The education masters break bread with a plastic God
With ignorant rebellions walking viciously in place
The thoughtless revolution is quickly, now, embraced
& as the millions loose their voice
To live & not rejoice
To live without a choice, here forever

Domestic now, but spent early to late 80s playing drums in a hair metal band in Toronto. Since then I've lost the hair and have found new ways to scratch the rock and roll itch.
