Rolly Rooster – live

December 18, 2013

Rolly Rooster is a song by the Severins (Anderson, Berry, Bruce, Wilson).

Pyramid of Control

You can hear it on Soundcloud here

And these are my lyrics (along with the insanely surreal one line chorus coined live by bass player Richard Anderson):

They’re selling you back your souls

In plastic wrappers

with the colourful logos

Of the corporate elite

(And their sacred profit motive)

[Chorus: Your name is Rolly Rooster]

They’re selling you back your souls

In plastic wrappers

And they’re going cheap.

[Live improvisation: this version =

They’re going to help you feel so beautiful,

They’re going to make you get it on

Making you feel wonderful, they’re gonna …

Give you everything, you’ve been dreaming about,

In those hollow moments when the darkness sits

Beside your soul]

[Chorus: Your name is Rolly Rooster]

They’re selling you back your souls

In plastic wrappers

with the colourful logos

Of the corporate elite

And their sacred profit motive

They’re selling you back your souls,

They’re selling you back your love,

They’re selling you back your labour

[Live improvisation: this version =

You’re buying back yourself,

You’re buying back yourself …]
