The Big Fool è lo stesso che solo qualche ora fa, in conferenza stampa, suggeriva all'umanità di iniettarsi disinfettante per combattere il coronavirus... Il mondo nelle mani di un pazzo decerebrato...

I can see a wave approaching
And it threatens all I live for
The ceremony of innocence
Is drowned in Texas oil

And the muddy water's rising
And the temperature is climbing
They ignore the Lord Stern's wisdom
While the Big Fool says push on.

And the permafrost is melting
And the glaciers are receding
The extinctions are beginning
And the Big Fool says push on

And the rich buy private islands
Hoard the food in luxury bunkers
And they'll pay their private armies
To shoot our families when we beg.

But the Big Fool says keep pushing
And the Big Fool says keep pushing
The Big Fool says push on

But the Big Fool says keep pushing
And the Big Fool says keep pushing
The Big Fool says push on

And the storms surge through our city
While they break the Paris treaty
And they act like this is normal
And they go about their business

And they piss on love and reason
While the scientists are weeping
They deregulate the coal mines
While the Big Fool says push on, push on, push on

And I'm so tired of screaming now
Can't wake from what I'm dreaming now
To look my baby in the eye
Is more than I can bear

And we have no choice but go on
Though the covenant is broken
Lying shattered and indifferent
While the Big Fool says keep push on

Big fool says push on
While the Big Fool says keep push on
Big fool says push on
While the Big Fool says keep push on
Big fool says push on

The ark was moving on the waters
That had become so exceedingly powerful
15 cubits above did the water prevail
And all flesh below did perish
Beneath the waters of oblivion
Among the fowl among the cattle
And all the creeping things that creep
And even mountains then were covered
Breath of the spirit was extinguished
God blotted out what he'd created
The covenant of redemption broken
No human hand will be extended
To receive the dove's green present
Only the screeching of the raven
And the Big Fool says push on, push on, push on,...

Push on....

Caw Caw Caw!...
Lord Lord Lord...!

And the Big Fool says push on, push on, push on,...
