about

This is actually a re-imagining of a song that I wrote years ago that was released on Slovo’s first album under the title ‘Weebles Fall’. It’s about the absurdity of the argument that ‘there is no alter- native’ and things can never change. (Dave Randall June 2020).

lyrics

Seas are dry
catfish fly
the suns spins ‘round the earth
and the way we’re living is the only way

Weebles fall
Thai dry chillies cool
the earth spins round the moon
and the way we’re living is the only way

we close our eyes
recite our daily lies
get high, so high
we self-lobotomise

Smart bombs tease
riot police say ‘please’
numbers sanctify our actions
and the way we’re living is the only way

we close our eyes
recite our daily lies
get high, so high
we self lobotomise
