Propagandhi - Victory Lap

“god, are you there? can you confirm that I’m on the right goddamn planet??”
new single, 2017.

when the flames engulfed the home of the brave,
the stampede toward the border was in vain
faces palmed, faces paled
as the wall they said would make them great could not be scaled
when the free-market fundamentalist steps
on a roadside bomb outside Kandahar bleeding to death,
I swear to Ayn Rand,
I’ll ask if he needs an invisible hand

you say not all cops, you say not all men
yeah, you insist it’s only 99%
there’s nothing new for you to learn?
okay, sit back, relax, and watch it all burn
the colossal waste of energy…
talent upon the talented, freedom upon the free,
this whole damn beautiful life
wasted on you and me
