In celebration of Parody Project’s first full year of operation, here’s a sequel to our very first post, Confounds the Science. Just for purposes of clarity, the sequel is called “Sequel to Confounds the Science.” No confusion there!
LYRICS for CONFOUNDS THE SCIENCE (Part 2)
We know darkness will descend
Precisely as the signs portend
When all but three percent of scientists say
we should have taken action yesterday a collision of corporate greed against the earth our social dearth
and it confounds the science.
There’s air pollution overload
from life in fossil fuel mode
And while solutions are within our sight
We’re doing nothing to avoid the plight
A catastrophe like we’ve never seen before
stands at the door
and it confounds the science
Extermination of the bee
where once ten thousand now there’s three
they’re disappearing at a rapid clip “I don’t use honey,” all the morons quip wait We should remind ourselves that without bees there’s no food
and we’ll be screwed and it confounds the science
Our cancer rates are through the roof
as to the cause there’s never proof
the chemicals that we spray on our food and other toxins that we’ve gladly chewed the consequences of our choices we minimize yet supersize
wait and we confound the science
And the people bowed and prayed
to the money god they made While the earth is flashing its warning about disaster that we are forming
We argue back and forth over meaningless issues that we fabricate
til it’s too late
and even then it confounds the science.
This video is being posted on August 16th, 2018, exactly a year since the first video was posted to the Parody Project Channel . . . and the first video was Confounds the Science (Parody of Sound of Silence by Simon and Garfunkel) which is still the most popular video we’ve done, with the Twelve Days of Trump’s Mess running a close second.
So I thought it would be fun and appropriate to post a sequel to Confounds the Science today, on the first anniversary of Parody Project. Maybe it’ll be an annual event, since there seems to be plenty of material that “confounds the science,” and that probably won’t change.
If you’re not familiar with the original version we posted a year ago, you can watch it here:
