The Parliament Of Fools Lyrics

7. The Parliament Of Fools (3:10)
All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools

The discontented winter howled, when I first came up to vote.
They swept in on a sea of change, but I'm glad I missed their boat.
As communities were taxed and torn, utilites got floated
And for eighteen years the "True Blue" cause prevailed and was promoted.
How do you cast your vote in the parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in the parliament of fools?

Now I took me off to college for to learn philosophy.
Studied Paine and Machiavelli, spin and sophistry.
But coming from a country that was red in tooth and claw,
For a one-horse-race some lobby-fodder-donkey was brought forth.
How do you cast your vote in the parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in the parliament of fools?

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools.

Armed with this liberal knowledge, I set off to London town.
To see the "Seat of Wisdom," and hear justice handed down.
Not a 'semblance of normality,' an assembly of insanity
I'll not become a member of this parliament most foul.
How do you cast your vote in the parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in the parliament of fools?
Yes, all the seats are taken and our confidence is shaken.
How do you cast your vote in the parliament of fools?
