In the realm of politics, the people who frustrate me the most are not the people with whom I disagree. It’s the people who can’t be bothered to pay attention at all.

Someone turned a light on
Someone made a spark
Some of us were blinded
Some prefer the dark
But it’s all forgotten now
Yes it’s all blown out the window
There’s nothing more to say
The world’s too far away
So why should it disturb our day

Say you don’t remember
And I’ll tell you I don’t care
We’ll pretend it’s not important
We’ll maintain we weren’t aware
Passionately apathetic
We play it off apologetic
But nothing’s ever more pathetic in the end

Pictures in the paper
Stories on the news
Labels meant to warn us
Manage to confuse
But it’s all a scattered blur
In one ear and out the other
We’ll assume that things are fine
Living under power lines
Ignoring all the danger signs

Cause it’s so hard to remember
It’s so easy not to care
We can say it’s not our business
We’ll explain that we weren’t there
Passionately apathetic
We somehow make it sound prophetic
But nothing’s ever more pathetic in the end

Three cheers of joy for the information age
And all it’s done for the entertainment page
Cause we all fall for different delusions
But still arrive at the same bad conclusions
Stare in awe and wonder at the finest of illusions
Offered on the public stage

Say you don’t remember
And I’ll tell you I don’t care
We’ll pretend it’s not important
We’ll maintain we weren’t aware
Passionately apathetic
We try to sound apologetic
But nothing’s ever more pathetic in the end

Cause it’s so hard to remember
It’s so easy not to care
We can say it’s not our business
We’ll explain that we weren’t there
Passionately apathetic
We act like it’s so damn prophetic
But nothing’s ever more pathetic in the end
We’re passionately apathetic in the end
