Just Bullshit is a song that looks at the way complexity can persuade us that something is true, when actually it's just a lie. Increasingly, con artists have used complexity to smokescreen scams, because complexity diverts attention away from the obvious question of "true or false", and places it into problem solving mode. These techniques are also often used by 'legitimate' businesses.

LYRICS

VERSE

Sometimes the Devil's in the detail
Sometimes it's all in the small print
Sometimes it comes in the form of an email
Without as much as a drop of ink

CHORUS

Come on. Come on. We're over-analysing it
Come on. Come on. Sometimes it's just bullshit
Don't matter where you go
Don't matter where it's coming from
From the lowest of the low
The highest high, kingdom come
When someone's challenging your wits
Look out, it's just bullshit

VERSE

Sometimes it seems so complicated
It's hard to see what's going on
Sometimes it seems so God-damned frustrating
Are we gonna be right? Are we gonna be wrong?

CHORUS

Come on. Come on. We're over-analysing it
Come on. Come on. Sometimes it's just bullshit
No matter where you go
No matter where it's coming from
From the lowest of the low
The highest high, kingdom come
When someone's challenging your wits
Look out, it's just bullshit
