about

A blistering, funky commentary on the current state of the union in America.

lyrics

Barbarians

Verse1:
Take a look around
the circus lost a few clowns
now they're loose on the streets
accomplishing impossible feats
great at sleight of hand
stories they tell are laid in quicksand
got the whole world shook
no way we let 'em off the hook
Change:
We won't be fooled, those days are over
You just been schooled, keep looking over your shoulder
now you see how it feels
Hook:
Barbarians are at the gate
Time to investigate
gotta reevaluate
the current state
Barbarians are at the gate
spreading ill-will and hate
never gonna tolerate
we've been strong too long
Verse2:
Now we've been here before
The wounds too fresh to ignore
now they're trying to take us back
moves we made are under attack
And they're lighting up the worst
why not celebrate the best in us
part of the master plan
good people won’t you understand
Change:
We won't be fooled, those days are over
You just been schooled, keep looking over your shoulder
now you see how it feels
startin’ to get real
Hook:
Barbarians are at the gate
Time to investigate
gotta reevaluate
the current state
Barbarians are at the gate
spreading ill-will and hate
never gonna tolerate
we've been strong too long
