Considering it’s a voting year in RSA and that people still think that putting an X in a box constitutes political ‘action’, I thought I’d draw attention to a cool song called ‘Swamp’ by the band Cog; listen to it on youtube if you can:

“I don’t listen at all to the government
I just say ‘no, why do you hate?’
I don’t listen at all to the government
The government has gotta go, oh yeah

I don’t listen at all to the government
I just say ‘no, why do you hate?’
I don’t listen at all to the government
The government has gotta go

They’re getting in the way of
(The smoke they’re blowin, all this strain they’re showin)
They’re getting in the way of
(The smoke they’re blowin, only our way)

I don’t listen at all to the government
I just say ‘no, why do you hate?’
I don’t listen at all to the government
The government has gotta go

Getting in the way of… only our way
(The smoke they’re blowin, all this strain they’re showin)
They’re getting in the way of
(The smoke they’re blowin)
This time the government has gotta go

No doubt, they’ve sold out
But right now we can end the game they’re playing.”
