lyrics

I know you, you know me
We’re just one big happy family
Life is good, as good as it can be
Living in the land of the free

Then the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
They all gathered on the green
Stirred the pot and brewed some tea
Yeah the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
And we all went mad
Lost what little bit we had
Yeah we real lost our minds

Meanwhile back on the farm
You and I are just trying to stay warm
Listening to incendiary speech
Meant to deceive, not to teach

Cuz the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
They all gathered on the green
Stirred the pot and brewed some tea
Yeah the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
And we all went mad
Lost what little bit we had
Yeah we real lost our minds

Dodging bullets in a war of words
One lone voice struggles to be heard
One pure song too soft to reach
Ears of stone lost amid the screech
Still I know I’m a lucky guy
I’ve got you to tell me why
But you can throw the wishbone in the trash
That’s where I saw my wishes last

Cuz the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
They all gathered on the green
Stirred the pot and brewed some tea
Yeah the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
And we all went mad
Lost what little bit we had
Yeah we real lost our minds
Cuz the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
They all gathered on the green
Stirred the pot and brewed some tea
Yeah the lunatic fringe took the mainstage
And we all went mad
Lost what little bit we had
Yeah we real lost our minds
