That Princeton Baccalaureate speech hasn't aged too well, has it, Jeff? I've tagged this with "angry old dude" because I see so much inequality out there these days, that's become pretty much my full-time occupation. And this? When he has workers lying in warehouses injured and being ignored, when other employees are too scared or pressured to take time off sick, this is an obscenity.
But I continue to be having more than a sane amount of fun with Aly James's VPROM VST. Today I discovered how to make the classic LinnDrum "buzz" and of course used it here to excess, because it me.
Whoever profits won't be me
The law won't interfere, that's plain to see
They're selling off the public trust
They'll have their boom while we go bust
He says to stick with what you know;
it's easy come and easy go
They led us to the brink
with song and dance
then tipped us over into hell
I had reserves on hand
I see they've taken those as well
Well, ain't that swell?
What's going on is far from right
He's making billions overnight
The homeless on the streets can starve
He knows that he'll still get to carve
And keep the best cuts for himself
'cause only he can reach that shelf
Turn on the news. See what I mean?
That scale of fortune is obscene
If he won't put it to good use
Is that not blatantly abuse?
He's warped the system to his will
So someone else can pay his bills
