"Culture War" Live at The Foundry, Athens, GA 10/13/16
Inspired by Ruthy's spontaneous "My Baby Drinks Water" video and Pussy Riot's relentless stream of hard hitting activist videos this week I thought I'd throw this one in to the digital fray. It's a song that's been kicking around for a year or two (I posted a studio take here back in January) and we re-learned it during a soundcheck in Athens, GA on the recent "Hurricane Matthew" tour. I really like this song and I hope you do too! Thanks so much to Adam Armstrong for such a killer mix (where you can really hear the words!) and props to Andy Stack, Ruthy, Rob Stein and Konrad Meissner for learning this one so quickly and playing it so well. I love you all! - Mike Culture War I was in the midst of a culture war And I am in the midst of a culture war My body's my ballot I cast it every day I'm just tryin' to keep some of my demons at bay 'Cause I am in the midst of a culture war I am in the midst of a Culture War Television rules this culture war Yeah, television rules this culture war I see the blue light flashin' In the living rooms as I drive by I can't help but wonder what they're feedin' your mind Cause you are in the midst of a culture war Yeah, you are in the midst of a culture war So, what do you do now in a culture war What do you do now in a culture war This Land is Your Land We Shall Overcome You gotta get organized to get anything done Get something done you gotta do it yourself You find there's some folks out there who wanna help you Cause we are in the midst of a culture war Yeah, we are in the midst of a culture war #69protestsongs #mikeandruthy #culturewar
