Politically Incorrect Lyrics – How Far We’ve Come

Now that I’ve written a novel on the state of the union address…time to have a little fun at the expense of Matchbox 20.  For legal purposes, I don’t own the original song, “How Far We’ve Come” – they belong to Matchbox 20…but under Fair Use…I’m allowed to parody them to make my own point.

It’s a great song BTW – really pumps me up when I hear it.  Give it a listen and try singing along with some politically incorrect lyrics for a change of mood. 🙂

Hello! Hello! Hello!

We’re waking up at the start of the end of the west,
Clock is ticking like the freedom-loving heart in my chest,
Now I wonder how the world is gonna be when it’s gone.

The debt is mounting like a half a billion dollars a day,
Not even trying here, it’s only paper aa-anyway.
Can we remember what we fought for so long ago in Yorktown?

I believe the world is burning to the ground,
Oh well.  I guess…we’re gonna find out.
Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

I believe it all is coming to an end,
Oh well.  I guess…we’re gonna pretend.
Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

I look around at the faces of the hopelessly lost,
Sold our souls, Hollywood grows, to steep a cost.
I start to cry and I cannot stop myself,
I could run, but there’s nowhere to run to.
Last door on the right by the steeple bells,
Only place to go when you know the world is headed for hell.
Find your inner strength if you’ve got any left – this is your fight!

I believe the world is burning to the ground,
Oh well.  I guess…we’re gonna find out.
Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

I believe it all is coming to an end,
Oh well.  I guess…we’re gonna pretend.
Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

Gone! Gone! Babe, the money is gone.
There’s no one left to save you if you won’t save yourself.
Dream is dead! Dead! If we think it’s cool.
It will be over for me, and for you as well.

Gone! Gone! Babe, the money is gone.

Oh well.  I guess…we’re gonna find out.
Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!

Oh well.  I guess…we’re gonna pretend.
Let’s see how far we’ve come!
Let’s see how far we’ve come!
