about

As the Trump Administration dismantles the government, deregulates everything, and emboldens racist hate groups, Trump does what Trump does best: DISTRACTS. "Dinosaur Bones" is a folk rock protest song about Trump's distraction politics.

lyrics

As Trump distracts
With his speeches and tweets
His Cabinet acts
Dismantling agencies
All the social progress
That we’ve known
Has been replaced
With dinosaur bones

It’s been this way before
But we were making progress
More and more
Now we’re spiraling back
Clinging to the past
Ignoring the facts
Of dinosaur bones

As Trump distracts
With his shock politics
Congress acts
Deregulation tactics
Destroying environmental
Protections
To ensure we burn
All dinosaur bones

It’s been this way before
But we were making progress
More and more
Now we’re spiraling back
Clinging to the past
Ignoring the facts
Of dinosaur bones

As Trump distracts
With his news conferences
His alt-right acts
Marching with tiki torches
Committing racist, violent
Terrorism
Emboldened by the White House
Of dinosaur bones

It’s always been this way
Sure, we made some progress
But racism never went away
Now we’re spiraling back
To our haunted past
We’re excavating
All dinosaur bones
We’re excavating
All dinosaur bones
Repeating the past
Of dinosaur bones
Ensuring we become
Dinosaur Bones
