Magical Markets and Magical Mules

Magical Markets and Magical Mules

Words and music by Abel Ashes, from the album Between the Droughts and the Floods, 2019

Wall Street banks where the coke-heads play
Gambling the future from June through May
They’re fucking everybody in the USA
Crashing the economy for short-term gains
Crashing the economy for short-term gains

Tired of the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit
Talking about some bullshit
Tired of the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit
Talking about some bullshit

Journalists report the true complexity
Dumb fucking views on the blogs you read
Jumping to conclusions of conspiracy
Avoiding other facts like a bad VD
Avoiding other facts like a bad VD

Tired of the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit
Talking about some bullshit
Tired of the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit
Talking about some bullshit

“Allahu Akbar”, “Don’t tread on me”
“Jesus is Lord” and “Me, me, me”
Magical Markets won’t set you free
Neither will theocratic tyranny
Neither will theocratic tyranny

Tired of the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit
Talking about some bullshit
Tired of the bullshit, bullshit, bullshit
Talking about some bullshit

Dominionists’ and Islamists’ religious rules
Designed to keep you stupid in religious schools
The Fear of God will keep the people playing the fools
While billionaires are loading up the world like mules
Billionaires are loading up the world like mules
Billionaires are loading up the world like mules
Billionaires are loading up the world like mules
