The Lunatics Have Taken Over The Asylum

I like the original version of the song, by British band Fun Boy Three in 1982. Presumably they were not fans of US President Ronald Reagan (the “cowboy” mentioned in the lyrics).

One can assume that the male backing vocalists, if they are transgender, did not participate in the “voice feminization therapy” offered to transgender people at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee. It’s odd how leftists insist that genders are simultaneously equal and irrelevant, yet they want men who think they are women to speak like a woman. If it doesn’t matter what gender you are, why bother to train a man’s voice to sound like a woman’s? Leftist illogic is always good for a laugh.

Los Angeles band Collide did this version in 2004, and there is no doubt that singer kaRIN is a woman. I like this version very much.

I see a clinic full of cynics
Who want to twist the peoples’ wrist
They’re watching every move we make
We’re all included on the list

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

No nuclear the cowboy told us
And who am i to disagree
’cause when the madman flips the switch
The nuclear will go for me

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum

I’ve seen the faces of starvation
But i just can not see the points
’cause there’s so much food here today
That no one wants to take away

The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my right to choose
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my point of view
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my dignity,
Take these things away from me
The lunatics have taken over the asylum
The lunatics have taken over the asylum, take away my family,
Take away the right to speak
The lunatics have taken over the asylum take away my point of view,
Take away my right to choose

    This is really funny considering we just got bought out by a competitor and the attitude is exactly like this scenario… Thanks for the chuckle!
