Age Of Cancellation

Age Of Cancellation

We should be more frightened of online mobs than psychic spies from China. But hey, at least if we get cancelled, we'll know why!

"Californication"

Psychic spies from China try to steal your mind's elation

And little girls from Sweden dream of silver screen quotation

And if you want these kind of dreams it's Californication


It's the edge of the world and all of Western civilization

The sun may rise in the East at least it's settled in a final location

It's understood that Hollywood sells Californication


Pay your surgeon very well to break the spell of aging

Celebrity skin, is this your chin, or is that war you're waging?

Dream of Californication


Marry me, girl, be my fairy to the world, be my very own constellation

A teenage bride with a baby inside getting high on information

And buy me a star on the boulevard, it's Californication


Space may be the final frontier but it's made in a Hollywood basement

And Cobain can you hear the spheres singing songs off Station To Station?

And Alderaan's not far away, it's Californication


Born and raised by those who praise control of population

Well, everybody's been there and I don't mean on vacation


First born unicorn

Dream of Californication

Dream of Californication


Destruction leads to a very rough road but it also breeds creation

And earthquakes are to a girl's guitar, they're just another good vibration

And tidal waves couldn't save the world from Californication


Pay your surgeon very well to break the spell of aging

Sicker than the rest, there is no test, but this is what you're craving?

"Age Of Cancellation"

Ostracized online by mobs of righteous indignation.

Dismissed into the void without defense or consolation.

A casualty of sophistry - the age of cancellation. 


It’s the death sentence writ without the fuss of litigation

The plaintiff cries as the beast can feast on groveling - extorted prostration

The brotherhood of victimhood and endless cancellation… 


Fear compels the ne’er-do-wells to posturing and staging,

Celebrities spin, confess your sin, the culture wars are raging!


Hate and public scorn,

New crowns of thorns

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation


Voice your concern, you’re the next one to get burned, it’s a delicate conversation,

We now deride what our parents supplied, just misguided fornication

So Rock gets his scars when a fresh prince spars and Hart earns cancellation


Truth may seem the safest of speech, but it still needs a sanctification   

And mutineers will disappear for a lack of authorization

And facts deface a safe space in the age of cancellation


Write afraid of new charades and lines of demarcation

Livings lost by pronouns or Chinese pronunciation


Hate and public scorn,

New crowns of thorns

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation


An Op-ed’s script is a heretic’s crypt in a newsroom altercation 

And classroom feuds stifle latitudes of several types of conjugation 

And ivory towers cower in the age of cancellation


Disaffect in retrospect and raise your hands for waving,

Jefferson we shun with Washington, but who are we enslaving?

Hate and public scorn,

New crowns of thorns

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation

In the age of cancellation
