Stupid Followed Evil

Listen here:

Video here:

Well, Evil said to Stupid

You look like you could use a friend

And Stupid said that’s great

I ain't had me one of them

Then stupid said to Evil

How does this friendship work?

And Evil said it’s easy you just look away when I do my work

So stupid dug a hole and stuck his head deep in the sand

And Evil had free reign to carry out his wicked plans

Well Evil saw that Stupid was truly stupid and he had time

To tear the world apart and split the people into tribes

He said that war can have a winner

And that greed is not a sin

And a man can judge another man by the color if his skin

And all the while stupid sat while the world burned to the ground

Thinking gee it sure is nice to have a friend around

Well, Stupid opened his eyes one day and saw that he'd been tricked

The rich had all grown richer while the poor all took a hit

His friends were all in jail

And he'd lost all of his rights

The people were divided

And the earth wasn't even fit for life

And he wanted just to go back

But by then it was too late

Because stupid followed evil

And there was nowhere to escape
