West of the Nile, the Sun has died Look, our children have gone astray
It really just all looks like a joke A macabre joke someone is playing like that time in Cartagena Where someone gave a laxative to all the birds So half the population received their shit falling from the sky That’s what it looks like Someone is playing this nasty ass joke And someone is laughing somewhere I’m not laughing when our kids die I’m not laughing when someone never comes home I’m not laughing at the dumb ass who invented racism After the mamelukes rebelled way back in the 12 hundreds I’m not laughing when musicians remain silent When it’s okay to have an all-white big band With no women in there either It’s just not funny what is going on Fallen queens forgotten kings History untaught, children distraught Walls and pipelines Shady investors playing with our lives Corrupt sociopath presidents And we stand by unbothered There’s nothing funny when a kid dies But when murderer police walk around With new guns after their paid leave It just all really looks like a joke Like a very macabre joke And someone is laughing somewhere
