an intentional parody of The Rolling Stones' Under My Thumb

lyrics

Indigital Revolution ==> (Somewhere Outside the) Center for the Performing Rich ==> Illuminaughty

Attention-money grubbing scum
It's absurd, but I guess you've used your weapons
Attention-money grubbing scum
Your selfish vision is a damned one
Breaks down to we
And we know where our hearts reside
Down to we, a change will come
Attention-money grubbing scum!
Ain't it the truth, babe?

Yeah, hiding is fun
When transcendent love is what's begun
Hiding is fun
And seeking joy fills expectant lungs
Enough to scream, we are free
As much as we exercise to be
Enough to scream, deep from our lungs
Suspending disbelief's fun!
In temperance's love

Yes this stance is some
Siamese dream of a noise
This dance is some
Hypnosexist kind of poise
We're here down with the
Black and white
Temporarily playing duality
Down with the ancient rite
Theatrical invite!
Though most have received a slight

Can you say “digital divide?”
Do you dare to ask why?
Oh say can you see?
The systemic continuity here
Can't you see the rich launder the tons
There's no excuse for their dungeons!
And it's not alright
Take it easy babe
But you gotta help fight

But in rage and drum
The careless can become their own pain
Arch-rivalries unconsciously tend to betray
So be unity, and own your shit
What you resist persists if not doing it
Own your shit, a change will come
Don't be comfortably numb!
Refuse to succumb
To hell with popular pablum
Elitist cancers are done
When you welcome indigital revolut[ion]

The Shortest Distance is the brainchild of Ramsey Sprague, a Chitimacha-identified social justice organizer born in coastal Louisiana and raised in suburban Arlington, Texas.
