lyrics

Strum a four chord symphony and write a cathartic therapy
Pentatonic alchemy around Middle C on all the white keys
Grab a triangle or tambourine, or
Bash out the chords to God Save The Queen
Don't have to be pretty, don't have to be slick
Just hit the snare and the kick and make a beat that's sick

Increasingly in society, the arts are getting left behind
And those who craft it are getting shafted
By leaders who are blind
Or maybe they choose not to see that without
Music, books or even TV
Our lives aren't worth the salt we've saved
In our assault on creativity

I'd rather hear something slapdash with heart
Than what quite often passes for art
Overproduced and vacuous
Trickle down tripe you tend to find on the charts, and so I

Strum a four chord symphony and I write a cathartic therapy
Pentatonic alchemy around Middle C on all the white keys, and I
Grab a triangle or tambourine, or
Bash out the chords to God Save The Queen
Don't have to be pretty, don't have to be slick
Just hit the snare and the kick and make a beat that's sick

They're trying to break our spirits, kid
Don't let them dull that shine
Make something that soars above the doldrums
And lays down a humble lifeline
We can write the next map
Help our children avoid the trap
Of only consuming, and never creating
And hating the lives that they lead

I'm not saying we can change the world, we can only plant a seed
