MODERN BASEBALL protest against Trump in their new track

MODERN BASEBALL band
Philadelphia’s MODERN BASEBALL has released a Trump protest song today as part of 30 Days, 30 Songs called “Bart To The Future Pat 2: The Musical“. The band said of the new track, “”It was impossible to say EVERYTHING we wanted to say about Trump. We knew that looking at him as a peer, rather than this untouchable figure, that we could judge and treat him like any other greedy, self-centered, short-tempered, racist, sexist, unqualified person you meet in everyday life. Still, knowing that name calling will get you nowhere — we kept our examples generalized so that listeners can come to their own conclusions about how Trump really is, and how he would be as POTUS.”

Modern Baseball released their new LP Holy Ghost this May to widespread acclaim from The New York Times, NPR, Pitchfork, MTV, Boston Globe, Stereogum, The Guardian, Consequence of Sound, Alternative Press, AV Club, SPIN and numerous other publications of note.

Modern Baseball is Jacob Ewald (guitar/vocals), Brendan Lukens (guitar/vocals), Ian Farmer (bass) and Sean Huber (drums). Holy Ghost was recorded by Joe Reinhart (Hop Along, Joyce Manor) at Headroom Studios in Philadelphia.

Lyrics:

Some time at home will surely ease my mind
as I leave another state, scared

(What If I Was Someone Else)

Some time at home will surely ease my mind
Paper crown
I’m settled down, tonight
(What If I Was Someone Else)

Some time away could never ease the pain
A rich man, blood on his hands, no stain

(What If I Was Someone Else)

No time away could ever ease the pain
A rich man, would never take the blame

(What If I Was Someone Else)

Piss Off, Get Lost
We don’t believe you
Heard all you had to say
I wish that you were far away from me

Piss Off, Get Lost
I can’t conceive it
How did you make it this far
Without the seeing all the facts,
All that lacks in you

Trump Goes To Tucson
The tick, tick, click of the stink bomb
Three weeks time till tour takeoff
And I, Turn on the TV
File for divorce from my country
Thrift finds, second-hand lines
Just to say that this guy is a __________.

Piss Off, Get Lost
We don’t believe you
Heard all you had to say
I wish that you were far away from me

Piss Off, Get Lost
I can’t conceive it
How did you make it this far
Without the seeing all the facts,
All that lacks in you

Drop Out!
You’re no one we can believe in
Heard all that you had to say
I wish that you were so far away from me
