Lyric "The Parliament of Fools"

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools

The discontented winter howled when I first came up to vote
They swept in on a sea of change but I'm glad I missed their boat
As communities were taxed and torn, utilities got floated
And for eighteen years the true blue cause
Prevailed and was promoted

How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?

Now I took me off a college for to learn philosophy
Studied Paine and Machiavellian spin and sophistry
But coming from a county that was red in tooth and claw
In a one-horse-race some lobby-fodder-donkey
Was brought forth

How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?

All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools
All the seats are taken in the house that makes the rules
All the seats are taken in the parliament of fools

Armed with this liberal knowledge I set off to London town
To see the seat of wisdom and hear justice handed down
Not a semblance of normality, an assembly of insanity
I'll not become a member of of this parliament most foul

How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?
Yes all the seats are taken
And our confidence is shaken
How do you cast your vote in a parliament of fools?

Skyclad

Skyclad are a British heavy metal band with heavy folk influences in their music. They are considered one of the pioneers of folk metal. The etymology behind the term "skyclad" comes from a pagan/wiccan term for ritual nudity, in which rituals are performed with the participants metaphorically clad only by the sky, as a sign of equality. The name alludes both to the band's religious leanings and to their social beliefs, as set out in the song "Skyclad" on their first album.
