Lyrics

Every day i wake up and i’m asked whats on my mind
looks like most of us have left our sanity behind
What’s happening what’s happ’ning
Got me feeling fight or flight
are there any options left or is it only the alt right

people starting arguments with strangers on a screen
people only listen to the people they agree
opinion pieces shared around but there’s no need for proof,
in the information age where no one knows the truth

so keep your head down
gotta keep your head down
keep your head down
or you’re gonna get burned
I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up

My big mouth has got me up to where i am today
Who’d have thought my bigotry would get me so much pay
they say “he who shouts the loudest is bound to be the best”
With all this noise around me then i can ignore the rest

We’ll get rich but say we can’t afford your doctors, schools or homes
fingers crossed the public doesn’t look up from their phones
People need distracting so a villain we must make
Better drop some bombs or the economy will break

so keep your head down
gotta keep your head down
keep your head down
or you’re gonna get burned
I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up

I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up

Marching through the streets for the many not the few
I’m a social justice warrior and you can be one too.
We want to get elected through a democratic vote
but if you don’t agree with us then kindly go and slit your throat
if you don’t agree with us, then go and slit your throat
if you don’t agree with us, then go and slit your throat
if you don’t agree with us, then go and slit your throat
if you don’t agree with us then kindly go and slit your throat

keep your head down
gotta keep your head down
keep your head down
or you’re gonna get burned


I don’t wanna keep my head down
No i’ll never keep my head down
i don’t wanna keep my head down
i’m gonna get burned.
I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up
I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up
I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up
I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning, I’m burning up
