about

"Build the Wall" was Censored from all replays after a live appearance on FADE-TV, due to it's title being too triggering. Literally, that's what they said.

Oh yeah, also it was named the "Anti-Trump Song of the Week" by Canadian Radio Consultant Alan Cross... so try and square that shit kids.

Really this song for everyone on both sides of the aisle.

lyrics

take a look, my friend, you'll see your sordid ideology
is violently rippin' at the seams
what goes on behind your nose, like the sand that shifts beneath your toes
is meltin' away like ice cream

how long can you cling to the thought that you were owed and you should ought
to be at the top of the heap?
you can call it anything you please, but wrappin' it up in ribbons and beads
don't make any difference to me

i know you go any which way the wind blows
the wind's blowin' to the right side of the moat
will you undo everything that you've been through?
or follow the goat any which way he may roam

he's gonna make a mess of everything
still you're gonna kiss his ring
he's gonna make a mess of everything
still you're gonna kneel before your king

so dearly you do cling to these things
which would have you believe you're right
out of sight, out of mind
what you don't see you don't believe

i know you go any which way the wind blows
the wind's blowin' to the right side of the moat
will you undo everything that you've been through?
or follow the goat any which way he may roam
