lyrics

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
