Brilliant Fools [Gored] copyright 2007
Mike Lacey

The planet's overheating 'cause of man
Though no one seems to truly understand
Experts both agree and criticize
With a blend of theory, facts and lies

Chorus 1
Hard to say what life is worth, if it feels like Hell on Earth
But common sense ain't taught in schools, so watch out for the brilliant fools

Our choices leave me angry and resigned
A voice of reason's difficult to find [it's an inconvenient truth]
The tripe all sides are sellin' sounds the same
Sure makes bein' green look awful lame [best beware the brilliant fools]

Chorus 2
Hard to say what life is worth, prophesizing Hell on Earth
Tough predicting nature's force, tougher still to change it's course

Special interests drive this situation
Using all the science they can buy
Bend the truth to fit their explanation
Ignore the yellow ball up in the sky

We care about our families and land
But a carbon footprint doesn't help me stand [ ]
Instead of plans with workable ideas
Most of what's recycling is fear [ ]

Chorus 2
Use your mind to clearly think, brilliant fools become extinct
