about

"A lyrical commentary on Trump’s tweets, his single 'What Am I Supposed To Think?' comes off like a late night conversation with Father John Misty at the local bar. It is a conversation not unlike many happening across the world when it comes to the topic of Trump. Set to a backdrop of fingerpicking guitar and warm harmonica, the song was birthed at the 2017 Folk Alliance International Conference." - Green Light Go

lyrics

What am I supposed to think?

What am I supposed to think?
When you can't hear opinions
That question your own beliefs
And your own contradictions
A frame of mind is hard for those who choose not to see

What am I supposed to think
Your attention lacks compassion
And the words you choose to speak
Are ripe with flaws and backlash
Light enough to float, yet somehow still they manage to sink

What am I supposed to think?
It's about time I started using my mind
To better my beliefs

What am I supposed to think?
When injustice runs rampant
Bought up by monopoly
My government cannot govern me
And fix me up with a tie, and a working wage by and by

What am I supposed to think?
It's about time I started using my mind
To better my beliefs

What am I supposed to think?
What good is resistance?
Well who are we supposed to be?
When they push us in their systems
To be happy within
Just as long as your giving in
To a life without thinking twice

What am I supposed to think?
It's about time I started using my mind
To better my beliefs

Enter Whetherman, the music of 32 year-old independent troubadour Nicholas Williams, who has self-produced eight full-length albums of soulful folk music, with a highly anticipated new record 'This Land releasing in June of 2017.' ... more
