New song – The Cavalry In Cuffs

What can I say about our victory the other night that hasn’t yet been said? Very little, except to rehammer the point that with unity and reconciliation must come justice, and we don’t think that investigating and prosecuting the crimes of the current administration is a novel or fringe idea at all. Enjoy “The Cavalry In Cuffs”.

(Put the mouse over, a player appears)
The Cavalry in Cuffs

A flick of a fingernail clawed away and broke the seal
Split the loop from hoop to hoop on the jumprope anthem of bad ideas
It’s incomplete ’cause repudiation’s fine and good
It comes up wanting if it don’t pack the punishment that we know it should

Sweet retribution won’t you come and wipe away
All the derelictions of the last two thousand yesterdays
Sweet absolution, I’m afraid that won’t come up
No, not ’til the cavalry gets carried off in cuffs
An indictment, it will never be enough

Is it a lot to ask to just say thank you and move right on
Turn one eye blind to countless crimes and let those bygones be bygones
And let them rejoice and rejoin the company of magistrates
They’re angling for faces on coins, they should be printing license plates

Sweet retribution won’t you come and wipe away
All the derelictions of the last two thousand yesterdays
Sweet absolution, I’m afraid that won’t come up
No, not ’til the cavalry gets carried off in cuffs
An indictment, it will never be enough
