about

Patriarchy in Print is an electro anti-folk song about money, greed, and the patriarchy. It was inspired by the Bush Administration.

lyrics

white men posed in white man money
we fold them in our wallets
finger them in our pockets
they rattle to remind us
the chains that they create
this capitalistic society fueled
by their hate

so we pass them along to buy what we need
and then we pass them along to show off our greed
and then we pass them along with increasing speed
and then we kill for oil overseas
just to control the green
so now who’s got the most
and what does it mean?
and we’re bound to them while we spend each day
filling our piggy bank
wasting our strength
forgetting we prolong injustice
for comfort
we ignore the truth of what these tokens represent
the most dirty thing in this world
patriarchy in print
patriarchy in print
oh no, oh no, oh no.

so we pass them along to buy what we need
and then we pass them along to show off our greed
and then we pass them along with increasing speed
and then we kill for oil overseas
just to control the green
so now who’s got the most
and what does it mean?
what does it mean?

the fall of Rome, our inevitable repeat of history
his-story
his-story
his-story
his-story
his-story
his-story

so we pass them along to buy what we need
and then we pass them along to show off our greed
and then we pass them along with increasing speed
and then we kill for oil overseas
just to control the green
so now who’s got the most
and what does it mean?
what does it mean?

so now so now who’s got the most?
so now who’s got the most?
so now who’s got the most?
the BUSH FAMILY.

about

Team Smile and Nod Columbus

Team Smile and Nod is an electro folk pop duo from Columbus, Ohio that formed in 2004. About a week after swapping demo CDs, Rich Ratvasky (artist-producer) surprised Kara E. Sherman (singer-songwriter) with a remix of one of her songs. Inspired by the remix, they merged their musical styles into an upbeat, melody-driven, politically-inspired fusion. ... more
