In the land where I was born
lived a man with orange skin
and this man with orange skin
hated books and science too.
And this man with orange skin
was given charge of all the land
And because he was corrupt
the land was was sold to corporate greed.

We all live in a yellow submarine
a yellow submarine
a yellow submarine.
We all live in a yellow submarine
a yellow submarine
a yellow submarine.

And our friends are now family
Because we lost our kin to war
And the land is now all gone
Just like Costner’s Waterworld

We all live in a yellow submarine,
a yellow submarine
a yellow submarine
SERIOUSLY all of us that are left live in a submarine. It’s yellow, we think.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen the outside of it.
We are trapped in here because it’s unsafe to go out there.

“Full Speed ahead Captain Underpants”. This is what the captain insists we say every day at 3pm and 8pm. His name is not Underpants and there really is no need for a captain, it’s chaos in here but none of us argue with him, he’s very wild-eyed. Also, we have no idea what time it is, ever, he just randomly turns an old clock to 3pm and 8pm twice a day.

We all live in a yellow submarine
a yellow submarine…oh, who cares!! For a while singing this was helping boost morale but it’s really not working anymore. Most of us have scurvy now, everyone is vitamin D deficient. And we’re all married to each other.

As we live a life of fear
and dread and misery
Everyone grappling with
severe anxiety.
Sky of smog
and sea of trash
in our yellow submarine.

We all live in a….I can’t.
