The weather’s goin’ crazy and the world’s gettin’ hotter
They’re frackin’ underneath us and they’re poisonin’ our water
The politicians say that the scientists are liars
If we don’t take it to the streets then we’re just preachin’ to the choir
But I’ve never been one to throw a brick
So I put a little black square on my profile pic

The cops are suitin’ up like they’re going into battle
They got helmets, they got shields, they got tanks, they got ammo
They’re protecting all the bankers while their pockets get fatter
And there’s people in the street shouting “Black Lives Matter!”
Well I don’t wanna end up on the wrong side of their stick
I’ll put a little black square on my profile pic

There’s a pipe gettin’ built to move oil ‘cross the Nation
It’s crossin’ under rivers, goin’ through a Reservation
We gotta stop it now, I said “Not one iota!”
So grab your coat and hat, because we’re goin’ to Dakota
But I can’t go that far, it’ll make me homesick
I’ll put a little black square on my profile pic

There’s dogs that are lonely and there’s cats that are missin’
There’s a Kickstarter campaign for my fifth cousin’s mission
There are little budding artists who are lacking in vision
We’ve gotta give all we can, we gotta fix this condition
I don’t want anybody to think that I’m a prick
I’ll put a little black square on my profile pic

They took a lyin’ psychopath and put him into office
He’s givin’ all the jobs to the preachers and the bosses
He’s givin’ everything away, he’s nothin’ but a robber
We’ve gotta burn it all down before he cleans out the coffers
But I don’t wanna be listed as a Bolshevik
So I’ll put a little black square on my profile pic

about

Aaron Semer Seattle, Washington

"Semer draws from the tradition of the best singer/songwriters in that he can write about any variety of topics and make it all seem too easy. With Cape Disappointment, he deserves a seat at the table alongside Jeff Tweedy, Steve Earle, Warren Zevon, and John Prine. He's that good." - PopMatters ... more
