Scientific Riff

Don’t you hate it when they don’t like your work

The bureaucrats are a bunch of pen pushing jerks

Lawyers, economists, bankers galore

Nobody needs a scientist any more

 

A scientific riff ignored

 

They only see what’s on the balance sheet

Cuz there ain’t no use in a glacial retreat

Flood plain science is a thing of the past

The guy in office now is worse than the last

 

A scientific riff ignored

 

The storm is comin but ears remain deaf

They won’t awaken till there ain’t nothing left

The mass extinction that’s gonna come soon

Isn’t playing favorites, even we’re not immune

 

 

A scientific riff ignored

 

The agri-corporations pumping the soil

Give not a thought to the farmers who toil

The bankers say that subdivision should move ahead

Building shitty condos won’t have all of us fed
