I don’t have much of a voice for rock but I thought I’d try it anyway. Inspired by Stefan Kartenberg’s rocking of Apoxode’s excellent swingin’ electro track.

The writing came from my surprise to see a vote t____ sign spring up on a particular neighbor’s lawn just a week before the election. My first thought was, really!?! (I would never of suspected.) Then I thought, well, I guess I should thank him for letting me know what kind of a person he is.

Thank you for telling me about the causes
for which a damn you give
Thank you also for letting me know
where all the immorals live

I guess the internet just won’t do anymore
gotta get it out there on a piece of cardboard
Doesn’t even matter if you’re on a short road
Place your leanings on a placard
Don’t let your thoughts go untold

Yard signs
signs of the times
yard signs
show off your kids and your crimes
yard signs let everyone know
yard signs
your opinion is important

Even if only one neighbor sees it
it’s gotta make you pretty damn proud
to share your stupidity and lack of lucidity
to tell me your a moron right out loud

This is how we get to know our neighbors now
how many kids and where they go to school
which one’s you might share a candidate with
and which one’s are super easy to fool

So many causes so little time
guess I’ll list ‘em all in caps
and put ‘em all on a sign

Black lives matter
Gay lives matter
All lives matter
No shit, thanks for pointing it out

I have opinions and you need to know it
so drive past my house, I’ll open my trenchcoat and show it

Yard signs
signs of the times
yard signs
show off your kids and your crimes
yard signs let everyone know
yard signs
your opinion is important
But it won’t change mine
