Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson - Crisis Averted Lyrics


BAND:
Crisis averted
He's taking a stand (yea, taking a stand)
And the best part is
Everything he says is right

CITIZEN ONE (spoken):
"My name is Andrew Jackson and I'm here to speak with you
about the future of this incredible country. These are complicated times."

CITIZEN TWO (spoken):
"And today we're going to need to make some complicated decisions."

CITIZEN THREE (spoken):
"But we're going to make those decisions together.
I'm promising you transparency, accountability,
and open collaboration between you and me."

CITIZEN FOUR (spoken):
'Cause I'm the people's president and I'm here to be your friend,
to be your advocate, to be your voice."

CITIZEN ONE (spoken):
"It's morning again in America -

CITIZEN TWO (spoken):
- And I'm your president."

CITIZEN THREE (spoken):
"I'm your president."
ADVERTISING

CITIZEN FOUR (spoken):
"I'm your president."

ALL CITIZENS (spoken):
Andrew Jackson!

BAND:
I really think that this will work
We're young
We'll live forever
At least for one more night
My luck will hold this time
It always has before
So I think
I think it just might work

Crisis averted
I'm going alone (yea, going alone)
And the best part is
Everything I say is right

FLORIDA WOMAN (spoken):
I mean, I think it's a real tragedy that Jackson moved all the Indians from here in Florida

FLORIDA MAN (spoken):
Me too. It's a real tragedy

FLORIDA WOMAN (spoken):
And that's why we hesitated to move here. Absolutely.
We didn't want it to seem like we were endorsing that kind of behavior

FLORIDA MAN (spoken):
No. Of course not. But, then, we were like...it is nice it doesn't snow

FLORIDA WOMAN (spoken):
Yes, it is...so, it's like, it's really great that he did that. But we definitely don't condone it

BAND:
Did you really think
That this would work
You're fucked
You won't live forever
Your luck won't hold this time
It won't be like before
It's never
It's never gonna work
