No lives matter to the orange disaster

NOT SAFE FOR WORK

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

What can I say? A certain orange-faced horror in the white house is a disaster, but also a songwriting gift that keeps on giving.
Seriously, though, compared to just about every other president, the current occupant has raised the levels of narcissism and self-praise to a level not seen since.. well, you fill in the blank.

After the Virginia mess, I saw some meme about 'no lives matter' and thought, how perfect for trump- as it seems that no lives really have ever mattered to him on almost any level.

Recorded the basic track guitar and vocal, then thought it needed a little more oomph and added harmonica and drums...

Marked not safe for work (nsfw) for a few swear words, that only seemed appropriate...

Lyrics: 

When has he done anything for anyone else
No lives matter to the orange disaster
That lame fat ass only concerned with himself
No lives matter to the orange disaster
He tweets while he shits and who can really tell the difference
No lives matter to the orange disaster
Get rid of him and we’d still be stuck with Mike Pence
No lives matter to the orange disaster
You don’t need Nostradamus or a weather forecaster
To know no lives matter… to the orange disaster

Make America great just means more money for him
No lives matter to the orange disaster
We’re all victims to his stupid whims
No lives matter to the orange disaster
Instead of briefings he gets pretty photos and flattery
No lives matter to the orange disaster
It’s a slippery slide to a place called tyranny
No lives matter to the orange disaster
Imagine a circus with a psychotic ringmaster
No lives matter …..to the orange disaster

It started as a joke but now its no longer funny
No lives matter to the orange disaster
The only thing he cares about is making more money
No lives matter to the orange disaster
Every day it feels like we’ve crossed a line
No lives matter to the orange disaster
Goose-stepping our way by accident or design
No lives matter to the orange disaster
We’re moving into fascism faster and faster
No lives matter to the orange disaster

I particularly like the psychotic ringmaster line. Great stuff, Mike.

Holy crap you nailed this!! I actually LOL'd at the tweets while he shits line and the ringmaster / disaster rhyme is brilliant. As is it all. A devastatingly accurate takedown of the orange one and funny to boot.

Love the repetitive nature of this, it brings it into a great protest song that a crowd can sing and chant along with it. The bluesy guitar and harmonica are great additions.

Speechless. In a good way. Harmonica rocks.
