Yes, it uses Janis and Elvis in the hooky chorus but I what I really wanted to do is to pose the question, "What Legacy and how?"
"When the right starts to rot" is quite apt right now. The media has very important job in reporting this ever fracturing right wing of politics but please be careful as we don't need martyrs. We don't need a Janis/Elvis of the right. Just let them steam in their funk.


Why’s the world so black
Carry you on my back
Like a black tie, black car, black money at the bar
You won’t ever know you’ve gone to far
Hate is all you’ve got
When the right starts to rot
Crows attack, the Journo hack, the carcass on the road
The headlight glare caught you there and you just froze

Janis was smart
Janis worked it out
Janis knew that for you to remember what she said
She’d be better off dead
Elvis was King that why he over ate
Elvis knew but he just worked it out too late
Too late. Ah yeah.

When the winter comes
You’re still red from the sun
Your rum and coke, tongue tied, hot eyed, blood shot state of mind
Your politics come from shooting down road signs.


Take it all back you J-J-J-Journo Hack
