The Big Lie, Revised


How long a shadow the Big Lie casts

conceived and perpetuated by the Fuhrer and his minions

Keep it simple, keep it outrageous, keep it repeating

Blame everything on the Jews, they did

And the Big Lie surfaces again from another would-be Fuhrer

A stolen election!

People will believe

People will believe a simple, outrageous repetition

If we’re so susceptible to believing

why not turn the Big Lie on its fucking head

and put the idea to good use

If not the Big Truth at least the Big Self Talk

I can get through this moment says the anxious one

I have worth says the shamed one

I will meet someone says the lonely one

I can still get better says the addicted one

I am not a loser says the losing one

I won’t always hurt this badly says the grieving one

Things can get better says the sad one

Life is good says the downtrodden one

You have to be simple

You have to be outrageous

You have to keep repeating

You have to believe
