Pig Ignorance/Let the Nightmare in

With apologies to Galt MacDermot, James Rado and Gerome Ragni (1935-1991)

When a lunatic’s in the White House
And Fascism deludes the poor,
Now greed will rape the planet
And lies will become law.
This is the dawning of the age of pig ignorance,
Age of pig ignorance,
Pig ignorance,
Pig ignorance…

Enmity and unawareness,
Cruelty and hate abound,
No more wisdom or compassion,
Torture, murder, death of vision,
Twisted rightwing fabrications,
Evil, banal violations,
Proud ignorance,
Proud ignorance…

When a despot is in Downing Street
And billionaires brainwash the mob,
Now rage will wreck society
And thieves will con and rob.
This is the dawning of the end of enlightenment,
End of enlightenment,

Let the nightmare in,
Let the nightmare in,
The nightmare in,
The nightmare in…(repeat to fade)
