Antillectual – Heads You Win, Tails We Lose

Trump’s election and catastrophic policies are part of a worldwide epidemic of right wing politics disguised as anti-establishment movements. Critical times call for critical culture and “Heads You Win, Tails We Lose” is our critique of current events and the impact on our planet and its creatures.

We got the leaders that we deserve
Heads you win, tails we lose

What the fuck has happened, post apocalyptic wake up
I’ll never drink again, I just can not believe what’s hitting us
Idiot tsunamis, surging corpocratic stickup
Political pollution, posers, populistic buzz

Selling out the people that you claim to speak for

Heads you win, tails we lose
Fuck this game, your placebo news

The White House lead by Wall Street, main street left out in the gutter
The coach of the three comma club serving B-sides of society
Power brings responsibility like a big brother
Instead we get dictators, trapped in our democracy

Fuck this game and your fake excuse

Disgracefully you tear down what was built
It seems as if you’ve never heard of guilt
Unfortunately you’ll never be billed
For all the hard fought progress that you killed

Fuck this game and your crooked views
Half full glasses always get refilled

Liner notes

It was only a matter of time for a counter movement to rise after the financial crisis. Hoping for a left wing solution to solve a right wing problem seemed sensible, right? Instead, populism became one of the main responses to the recession.

This populist wave is destroying many progressive accomplishments all over the world. Trump in the US, Nigel Farage in the UK, Orban in Hungary, Duterte in the Philippines, Geert Wilders in the Netherlands, the list seems endless. If it wasn’t so painful you could call it ironic: self proclaimed “ordinary people” fighting the establishment they are the very product of. Well established people with a successful commercial or political career now say they represent society’s “leftovers”. Lower middle class families scared for the changes in a globalizing world form a group of people that feels betrayed by the political and economic elite. As a reaction they like to take on the classes above them (the elite) and below them (sexual, racial, religious and other minorities, and immigrants).

The lack of representation is a huge problem in western democracy, installing repressive authoritarian leaders feels very counterproductive though.
