about

Jed:
Dom fought constantly with his high school Social Studies teachers about the merits of Socialism - the teachers were always surprised when Dom actually knew what he was talking about.

Dom and Rob Hill wrote most of "Young Socialist" when I was late to a Skyscape rehearsal. It became Dom's signature song - the band's slogan was "Skyscape: The Breakfast of Young Socialists".

lyrics

Can't get a good man down
Young man was brought up in a brainwashed town

Wave to the boy
Jump to the left
Wave to the young socialist

Don't know what to say
Some say we're better off this way
Hell no, no way
Word!
Where a brother is a capitalist slave

Wave to the boy
Jump to the left
Wave to the young socialist

Red pigs
Black pigs
Sitting in the trough
Sitting in the same fucking trough

Wave to the boy
Jump to the left
Wave to the young socialist

Wave to the boy
Jump fifty feet to the left
Wave to the young socialist

Wave to the boy
Jump to the left
Wave to the young socialist

He's too young to die
With those capitalist swine

Black pigs and the red pigs in the trough
Pigs!

Wave to the boy
Jump to the left
Wave to the boy
I said jump to the left
Wave to the young socialist

Wave to the boy
Jump to the left
Wave to the young socialist
