Song: Jan 6. (When Lies Run the Show)

On January 6, as our legislators fled the insurrectionists, Senator Romney was reported to have called out, “This is what you’ve gotten, guys!”

I think that summed it up.

Those words stayed in my head, and a few weeks later, I came up with this song.

O Senator, O Senator
what was it you said?
This is what you get guys
as you ducked your head.

O Senator, O Senator
what did you know?
This is what you get guys
when lies run the show.

I woke up that morning with cheer on my mind.
I went for a run, and came home to find
the capitol building overrun by a mob
brought by denial and a master snow job.

O Senator, O Senator
what was it you said?
This is what you get guys
as you ducked your head.

O Senator, O Senator
what did you know?
This is what you get guys
when lies run the show.

As we watched the footage we checked our tears.
'Cause our children were watching and they soak up our fears.
We struggled to tell them just what had gone wrong
how a sitting U.S. President had ignited the throng.

O Senator, O Senator
what was it you said?
This is what you get guys
as you ducked your head.

O Senator, O Senator
what did you know?
This is what you get guys
when lies run the show.

Sometimes you're on top, and sometimes you're not
But don't wreck the game, 'cause you missed your shot

So the country's divided, many still buy the lie
Can we find common ground? Well, how 'bout we try
One basic rule, when we hunger to strike
accept all the facts, even ones we don't like

O Senator, O Senator
what was it you said?
This is what you get guys
as you ducked your head.

O Senator, O Senator
what did you know?
This is what you get guys
when lies run the show.
