Give us an effigy Give us a flame When we burn our fingers We'll know who to blame No, I don't know the root Couldn't care about the cause The nuance of the situation Never gave me pause When it's so easy to hate in the abstract Don't stop to think, simply react String up a strawman Better give him a name Wrap around his neck Every spurious claim If you must paint a picture Use the broadest of strokes Because it's on the fine, fine details That everyone chokes When it's so easy to hate in the abstract Don't stop to think simply react It's so easy to hate in the abstract And hate is what we do We're here to stamp out every divergent view When we're done with that we'll gladly start anew With all the tales we've spun And it's so easy to love in the abstract Just swipe away every inconvenient fact
