Brad's Occasional Pandemic Song of the Day (BOPSotD) <TM>
The Lincoln Project presents our music video for "Commander in Chief" by Demi Lovato



Were you ever taught when you were young
If you mess with things selfishly, they're bound to come undone?
I'm not the only one
That's been affected and resented every story you've spun, and I'm a lucky one

'Cause there are people worse off that have suffered enough
Haven't they suffered enough?
But you can't get enough of shutting down systems for personal gain
Fighting fires with flayers and praying for rain
Do you get off on pain?
We're not pawns in your game

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn't sleep
Seriously, do you even know the truth?
We're in a state of crisis, people are dying
While you line your pockets deep
Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?

We were taught when we were young
If we fight for what's right, there won't be justice for just some
Won't give up, stand our ground
We'll be in the streets while you're bunkering down
Loud and proud, best believe
We'll still take a knee while you're…

Commander in Chief, honestly
If I did the things you do, I couldn't sleep

Commander in Chief
How does it feel to still be able to breathe?

Breathe
Be able to breathe
Won't give up, stand our ground
We'll be in the streets while you're bunkering down
Won't give up, stand our ground
We'll be in the streets while you're…

Able to breathe

[Verse 1]
I'm not feeling alright today
I'm not feeling that great
I'm not catching on fire today
Love has started to fade
I'm not going to smile today
I'm not gonna laugh
You're out living it up today
I've got dues to pay
[Pre-Chorus]
And the grave-digger puts on the forceps
The stonemason does all the work
The barber can give you a haircut
The carpenter can take you out to lunch
Now, but, I just want to play on my pan-pipes
I just want to drink me some wine
As soon as you're born you start dying

Hi, All! I'm just letting you know that if you wake up and have no natural gas, a rude and condescending phone rep from @XcelEnergyCO will treat you like you don't know what you are talking about, and suggest that, despite the situation being potentially dangerous, you PAY a ...
... contractor of some sort to come to your house and verify that, yes, indeed, what you are experiencing with your own eyes, ears, and nose is, in fact, that you don't have any gas coming to your stove (so you can't cook breakfast) or furnace (so you can't warm your home) ...
...I mean, added onto the frequent, random electric outages, I know we all know @xcelenergy
is a terrible company with awful customer service, so I'm really not surprised. But if it happens to you, just know that they will give lip service to it being an unsafe situation, but...
