Story

 

Lyrics

The green billionaire is speaking with passion

From his pulpit at the head of the room

See how he shines like a Virgin messiah

Ain’t gonna save us anytime soon

 

Been to the mountaintop and seen the light

And here he come with tablets of gold

But now that all we had is looted and melted

That magic trick seems a little bit old

 

Chorus: It’s us

Just us

It’s up to us

Only us

 

And now he’s buddies with the boards of directors

Of Big Green this and Eco that

They’re clinking drinks over sustainable lunches

That kind of food can really make you fat

 

Chorus

 

Bridge: Letting go of hope ain’t easy

When there seems no other choice

But when you find your guru’s sleazy

Sorta helps you find your voice

 

Been to the mountaintop and seen the light

And here he come with tablets of steel

But now that every kiss is measured for market

It doesn’t matter how inspired you feel, because...
