A big thanks to Callum, claiming to be the author of the “Save our Schools” anthem.
I’ll reproduce his post here, the bold is the points I think particularly noteworthy:
Woah, just stumbled upon this site now – interesting. Thanks everyone for your feedback, I am currently seventeen years old, in year twelve at DC and am the songwriter/performer of the song in question. To the haters, the song was written in about an hour because my music teacher told me to make a protest song, i recorded it at home that night. I am happy with the production and musical quality of it, and am heavilly influenced by the alternative pop genre. The lyrics, as you may have guessed; are indeed a piss-take – theyâ€™re meant to be dumb! If you listen to the other songs on my bands myspace youâ€™ll notice all of the lyrics are piss-takes. So enough of your anti-lyric put downs, shit thereâ€™s worse lyrics out there. I am a supporter of the â€˜Save Our Schoolâ€™ move, but not a diehard protester – I only go to the f*cking things because they ask me to play at them and heyâ€¦ nothingâ€™s wrong with abit of exposure, right? Donâ€™t base the strength of our arguement on these lyrics alone, infact – donâ€™t base our arguement on this at all! The words are meant to be dumb and to me the song is just abit of fun. If you canâ€™t see past that, youâ€™re a terribly bitter and jealous individual.
