Description
According to my scribbled lyrics I started this song 2 years ago.

Two weeks ago I had an unpleasant "encounter" in the Spanish group I go to. I was so angry I had to leave the room before I lost my temper. Not very edifying behaviour from a 65 year old!

I arrived home still seething and pulled up this song and poured some vitriol into the vocals and felt so much better :)

It's all a little raw but I decided to leave it it like that.

Thanks to longtime collaborator Richard for filling out my lyrics and chords and Tim (once of this parish) for giving me the bridge 2 years ago.

The rise of the far right, emboldened by Brexit and Trump, is deeply worrying.

Fascist in my Soup (© 2019 Langford, de Ferrars, Marris)

Waiter there's a fascist in my soup
I didn't order one can you tell me what to do
Once I thought I had a choice
But now it seems I have no voice
Waiter there's a fascist in my soup

Waiter there's a racist on my plate
I tried to scrape it off but I think that's it too late
Why can't we educate
Stopping people feeling hate
Waiter there's a racist on my plate

And if a million people have to tick box X or Y
They’ll just recall the last soundbite, whether honest or a lie.
And when they see the hurt unleashed, the damage done for pride
The genie’s out the bottle and it won’t go back inside.

Waiter there's a nasty smell in here
Smells of hypocrisy, cigarettes and beer
A man who's rotten to the core
He has it all but wants some more
Waiter there's a nasty smell in here

Waiter I think I’ve had my fill
I can't stomach this it's making me feel ill
They stir us up, we fail the test
Eat the good stuff, feed us the rest
Waiter I think I’ve had my fill

At sixty-five, Dick
you've earned the right to lose your temper at much of the bullsh*t going down in the so-called civilized world today. You are a better man than I for being cool and leaving the room, though: I would have thrown something.

Sounds good, man. Keep it up (too bad there's so much inspiration).

Ha! Thanks :)
I don't often lose my temper "in public" but I really was on the verge of giving both barrels to an arrogant and insensitive bloke. I won;'t go into it here but it wasn't a pleasant experience.

At least the fire still burns!

Yes, I rather wish there wasn't this sort of inspiration.

the last sound bite
it would seem that much of our voting population are zombie voters that only look for their taste of brain in the soundbite... Good to put your energy into a song.

Clever lyrics...
sung with conviction. Classic arrangement.

Two years Dick? Wha happened?

Oh well, at least you finally got it posted!

Two years is good for me
I had one song that took 6 years.....

It was an interesting exercise in getting rid of anger. I know there are a few mistakes and stumbles but I thought it best to leave it raw as I wasn't sure I'd be able to recreate it easily.

Thanks Mike!

Bold and Satisfying
Splendid and fab, the whole thing made me wanna play and mix.
The poor waiter gets the heavy sign here lyrically this either makes the song or doesn't, in a large part due to the repetition. I heard "Walter, Whinny and Govern" after the first "waiter". The vocal harmony in fourths and fifths might add context. There is a pleasant guitar solo which features interesting picking technique and that is a rare.
I can hear this is as an inspired project.
Well done, and thanks for sharing, I hope you came resolve the trouble with the people who inspired the songs completion.

Thanks Mr D.
Very generous and thoughtful comments.

If it gets you wanting to play then I take that as a real compliment.

It's the most straightforward song I've done in a while and although it was good to be fired up enough to finish it it's sad that it had to be for such a reason.

Thanks for the comments on the guitar. I don't know about anyone else but I rarely plan any solo and won't assemble solos from different takes so what you hear is what was played. These days I try to keep to a "less is more" approach. Sometimes it works and sometimes not.

The issue in the class is resolved inasmuch as that I won't be returning to it. There is no changing some people.

Thanks again.

Cheers

I sure didn’t order that...
fascist in my soup here in the states but I found a big fat one swimming around like he owned the bowl. I think it’s time to dump the soup and order something clean and healthy.
Love it.

Muy bien Excelente !!
Wow Dick that's an awesome song on several levels. I can really hear the anger in your voice. So good that you got it down whilst you felt so strongly. I guess the other chap ( or woman?) thought "I'm right your wrong"?!!!. Much applause on this one. Mark

Full of emotion
Feels more mournful than enraged, but still a suitable response to the trouble we may be heading for. The guitar break is suitably mournful and very smooth.

And don't give yourself a hard time for being angry, that's what we need more of at the moment. People in the US need to open their eyes and demand an end to the rampant corruption and greed that runs the country. Demand, not ask.

Both enraged and mournful
Thanks for the comments. The guitar was a bit rough but as I've said I wanted to just keep it immediate.

Anger is both destructive and energising. The problem for me where does it all end?

Thanks for the listen!

Welcome To...
... Chez Runamok, Dick. It's like a Lunatics' Pentecost, where all the basest instincts are celebrated and on full display.

Hopefully, the chefs who cooked up these rancid dishes will eventually be boiled in their own swill.

It's good of you to channel this experience into a musical expression that is both palatable and tasty. Keep stirring the pot. ;)

Chez runamok is about right
There is a madness descending on us all.

Unfortunately the chefs will have sold the restaurant and retired to some island in the sun by the time the real results are in.

Thanks for taking the time out to listen and comment!

Thanks Charlie
I'm not sure when the next one will be! I'd rather be able to stop writing these songs but something happens and I'm off again.

It was sad about the group as I enjoyed the company of most of them. I never actually progressed with my Spanish though as it was too informal. At least I got a song from it even if I was overreacting!

Thanks for the listen and comments.

DAMN!
"it seems i have no voice" **** and ironically, Dick - I have NEVER heard you sing with such deep guts. Awesome music - powerful and pulling. love the way the bass pulses through. guitar break was simply stellar. these lyrics are important and you deliver them with the perfect attitude. i'm kicking myself for not hearing you sooner. i salute your song, Sir!

Love this Dick!
The words alone are worth the listen, but everything supports the sentiments perfectly. You and Richard have a way with words - here they are so relevant for so many situations around the world.
As an ex-Pom, Brexit has left me quite depressed, but of course if I was an ex-yank I'd be even more depressed.
A great contribution to MJ - I'm glad I'm back.
Cheers (and commiserations) from Oz,

The words were a long time coming. I had sketchy ideas and Richard has an ability to pull them togetherand present something a little more coherent!

It's a greatsadness that they are so relevant almost eveywhere now. I wonder where it all went wrong. No doubt there are theses already being written about it.

Many thanks for the listen and generous comments.
