Mother, Should I Trust the Government?



Mother, do you
think they’ll drop the bomb?

Mother, do you
think they’ll like this song?

Mother, do you think they’ll try to
break my balls?

Ooh ah,

should I build the wall?

Mother, should I run for president?
Mother, should I trust the government?
Mother, will
they put me in the firing line?

Ooh ah,

Is it just a waste of time?


"Waters has always had a dim view of totalitarian states and institutions (English schools). Having seen his Wall Tour performance this past summer at Citizens Bank Park with a diverse crowd of 40,000, ranging in age from senior citizens to teenagers, it seems this song has gained new meaning. He sang a duet with himself from 1980 projected on the Wall and when he sang the lyric, “Mother, should I trust the government?” the entire stadium responded in unison
– NO!!!

Then why do they?  Why do you?  Did you vote for them?  Do you watch their news?  Do you talk about what they want you to talk about?  Do you buy what they want you to buy, dress how they want you to dress, eat what they want you to eat?  Do you support their wars?  Do you, well do you?  

You're either in or you're out.  Time to choose.
