Poor McCartney tries to write a rebel saviour song. Instead he captures the blind mystification of a protected class living in a bubble who have no idea that millions of people are rebelling against the bully thought police and their demands for hero-status and money. Half the population of the West see through the modern witchdoctors who get every prediction wrong.

McCartney’s genius solution? “Lock him up”

Spot the irony, apparently Trump should have listened to “the will of the people”? What exactly does McCartney think 60 million people voted for?

The captains crazy but he doesn’t let them know it.
He’ll take us with him if we don’t do something to slow it.
How can we stop him
Grab the keys and lock him up

Below decks, the engineer cries
The captain’s gonna leave us when the temperatures rise
The needle’s going up, the engine’s gonna blow
And we are gonna be left down below
Down below

Despite repeated warnings
Of dangers up ahead
Well, the captain wasn’t listening
To what was said

Now the ropes that have bound him (What can we do?)
Prove that he should have listened (What can we do?)
To the will of the people
It’s the will of the people
It’s the will of the people

Lyrics to “Despite Repeated Warnings”

The song captures the frustration of the people who have no idea and no clue on how to get an idea either. “What can we do?” he asks over and over. How about trying to understand why people voted for Trump by reading what they read instead of just having the BBC-on-a-drip?

There is no doubt about McCartney’s intent — denying climate change is the most stupid thing ever

Lee Moran, Huffington Post

Legendary Beatle Paul McCartney has revealed he had climate-change deniers such as President Donald Trump in mind when writing one particular song on his new solo album, “Egypt Station.” The track, titled “Despite Repeated Warnings,” contains lyrics such as “despite repeated warnings of dangers up ahead, the captain won’t be listening to what’s been said,” and “those who shout the loudest, may not always be the smartest.”

McCartney told BBC Music’s Mark Savage in an interview published online Thursday that denying climate change was “the most stupid thing ever.” “So I just wanted to make a song that would basically say, you know, occasionally, we’ve got a mad captain sailing this boat we’re all on and he is just going to take us to the iceberg,” he added.

Asked if the “mad captain” was “anyone in particular,” McCartney responded:  “Well I mean, obviously it’s Trump but I don’t get too involved because there’s plenty of them about. He’s not the only one.”

As EricWorrall says: “People like McCartney in my opinion epitomise the kind of out of touch “Champagne socialists” who look down on the deplorables…”
