about

This song was originally written as Godzilla, with Godzilla as a metaphor for so many of the things going wrong in America. In the studio it soon morphed into being called Trumpzilla with the idea of how easy it is to label Trump as a scapegoat for all that is wrong with America. Is it all Trumps fault? That's not for me to answer. I'm just the one to point out what I see and prod the status quo. I hope you enjoy this funky little number for what it's worth.

lyrics

Sea level's rising
The mood is getting low
The sun is getting hotter
It's getting green at the North Pole

Godzilla he's stomping on buildings
The city is going down
He's breathing fire and spitting daggers
We've got to run him out of town

Godzilla he's breathing fire
We've got to run him out of town
Godzilla he's swinging from towers
We've got to pull him down

He'll take us all with him
Grind our noses to the ground
Destruction at every whim
His lost it can't be found

Poison flowing from the taps up north
They'll pull you out of your car downtown
Makes you wonder what your life is worth
Is there anywhere to go but down?

Godzilla he's breathing fire
We've got to run him out of town
Godzilla he's swinging from towers
We've got to pull him down
