The Parliament Of Fools

This song is by Skyclad and appears on the album A Semblance Of Normality (2004).

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools

The discontented winter howled when I first came up to vote
They swept in on a sea of change but I'm glad I missed their boat
As communities were taxed and torn, utilities got floated
And for eighteen years the true blue cause
Prevailed and was promoted

How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?

Now I took me off a college for to learn philosophy
Studied Paine and Machiavellian spin and sophistry
But coming from a county that was red in tooth and claw
In a one-horse-race some lobby-fodder-donkey
Was brought forth

How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools
All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools

Armed with this liberal knowledge I set off to London town
To see the seat of wisdom and hear justice handed down
Not a semblance of normality, an assembly of insanity
I'll not become a member of of this parliament most foul

How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
Yes all the seats are taken
And our confidence is shaken
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
