Immediately upon hearing Apoxode’s funky Case Of The Jitters inspiration hit and I came up with this vocal to it. I think it comes from how much it bothers me when the talking heads on NPR keep reminding us we must consider the perspective of the people that voted for T____. Why? Why are the stupidest among us even allowed to be part of the process?

Also there are a few sax blasts from Martijn de Boer toward the end.


Now I don’t care about your perspective
and you don’t care about mine
As far as I can tell yours is wrong
and everything about mine’s fine

I’m sick and tired of fighting about it
and I’m not gonna do it anymore
So go ahead and post your hateful comments
I’m not gonna get into a war

‘Cause people like you are in love with your fear
and all you wanna do is share it
and people like me who prefer to live in love
really don’t wanna hear it

So go away with your fear
and go away with your hate
I’m gonna be right here
Hoping love will win and willing to wait

So go away with your fear
and go away with your hate
I’m gonna be right here
Living in love and not taking the bait

Time might be running out
and it looks like evil might win
what we really need are more righteous warriors
willing to slaughter your sin

You’re wrong when you think there’s nothing wrong
with the way things were yesterday
Open your eyes and look around
The earth’s got plenty to say

Don’t listen to the con-men
They’re filling your head with lies
All they really want is all the money
before the whole thing dies

And if you’re stupid enough to fall for it
then I’m just done with you
People in the wrong are wrong
and people in the right know what’s true

While I appreciate your perspective
or at least the fact you have one
I don’t care about your opinion
if your best friend is your gun

What you say has no power over me
if what you say is dumb
I know you see things differently
because of what and where you’re from
but that doesn’t mean it’s valid
you’re not automatically correct
You’re only under-educated
and seem to only want things wrecked

Well I gotta admit I’m sick and tired
of puttin’ up with people like you
who’s brain is the size of a peanut
and who’s mouth is the size of a hippo times two

So go away with your fear
and go away with your hate
I’m gonna be right here
Hoping love will win and willing to wait

So go away with your fear
and go away with your hate
I’m gonna be right here
Living in love and not taking the bait
