about

Speaking of political satire of the Ford administration and its limited shelf life (See the track notes of "Feelin' Fine") "Decade of Darkness" is a Bush administration protest song two administrations late. Old time blues player and archivist, Frank Basile (The Poor Riders, The Little Brothers) is the guest guitarist on this track.

lyrics

We go out walking with some flowers in our hair
See blossoms open in the warm December air
Provincial voices stir emboldened for a fight
Nylon flags are flapping in the metal halloid light

It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness

We saw some livestock in a parking lot tonight
Beneath the watchful eye that rules by divine right
The streets are full of shouts and laughter everywhere
The dead and living dancing in a village square

It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness

I pledge allegiance to the star striped license plate
Let superstition guide the swords of every state
Flow gentle opiate. The air raid sirens scream
Let levies crumble and let ignorance reign supreme

It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness
It’s been a decade of darkness
