History will judge us either stupid or complicit, RIP, Jack Hardy



Today I reflect on Jack's words, HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE!

Ask Questions

The dust bowl is flooded the northwest is dry

Someone strike a match to shed us some light
But all that is burned is a cross in the yard
And a flood in the ninth parish ward
Climb up the hill to the capitol
Dare to hold them accountable


Ask questions

Jefferson the patriot fearless and bold
Takes Sally Hemmings when she's fourteen year old
Who cannot resist who cannot deny
The way his descendants now have to try
Climb up the hill to the capitol
Dare to hold them accountable

Ask questions

(chorus:)
And history has eyes history has ears
History finds secrets that are buried for years
Exploded explained exposed and explicit
History will judge us either stupid or complicit
And we know we are not stupid

Ask questions

Remember the Maine, Lusitania too
The Gulf of Tonkin and Peal Harbor Two
Where there's a will there's a way to go to war
And a profit without honor no more
Climb up the hill to the capitol
Dare to hold them accountable

Ask questions

Joshua believes in heaven and in hell
Polishes his trumpet in a dessert motel
Gambling and whoring till his time comes around
And the towers come tumbling down
Climb up the hill to the capitol
Dare to hold them accountable

Ask questions

(repeat chorus)
