Now more than ever, we need Jarvis Cocker to write us a new National Anthem. No scratch that. We need Jarvis Cocker to let us have THIS as the International Anthem.
“Did you hear there’s a natural order? Those most deserving will end up with the most”
Now the Ayn Rand readers might not see the irony dripping off of that so we’ll let JC continue.
“Now the workin’ classes are obsolete, They are surplus to society’s needs, So let ’em all kill each other and get it made overseas”
Right! He’s being scathing yeah? About the Man, Maaan. Tell it like it is Jarv!
“Well feed your children on crayfish and lobster tails, Find a school near the top of the league, In theory I respect your right to exist, I will kill ya’ if ya’ move in next to me,
Yeah! rich people right? It’s all their fault. Rich people are dicks. Who’d want to be one of them? Umm. Most people right?
Ah, it stinks, it sucks, it’s anthropologically unjust Oh, but the takings are up by a third, so”
Right. We’ve got traction here. Morals are in play.
“The free market is perfectly natural, Do you think that I’m some kind of dummy?
It’s the ideal way to order the world, Fuck the morals, does it make any money?”
So we are all complicit in this. There’s a problem and it’s a top down issue. Does Jarvis have a solution? Something we can do to redress this?
“And if you don’t like it, then leave, Or use your right to protest on the street, Yeah use your right, but don’t imagine that it’s heard”
Boil it down for us JC how did we get into this mess?
“Let’s be perfectly clear boys and girls, Cunts are still runnin’ the world”
Don’f forget to vote Kids.
