lyrics

Welcome back to the countdown, this is Sean Ryecrisp here with you. Now I’m not really supposed to editorialize or give my opinions–it’s not that kind of a show–but this next band I have a real problem with because it was created by a SuperPAC, a political action committee. Now those are the people that spend all kinds of money on campaigns trying to buy elections and now apparently they’ve created a boy band in order to try to infiltrate pop music to get their message through. And I think that crosses some sort of a line and I can’t help…
Oh, I’m getting a message here that says the SuperPAC in question is now a major sponsor of Countdown so, hey, I guess I’m all for it!
Debuting at number three this week is the hot new boy band One Way Forward, this is On Our Side:

This world is filled with rumors and stories
And we’re here to tell you some more, yeah
We’ll blur the facts and stretch the truth
Because you’re worth fighting for
We’ll spend all of our time and most of our money
Trying to get our message to you
‘Cause if you hear what we say enough times
It’ll sound true

We’re gonna get you all riled up
And take you for a ride
‘Cause we’ll do anything
To get you on our side
We’re gonna make you hate someone
We’re gonna fill your head with lies
‘Cause we’ll do anything
To get you on our side

Don’t ask use where we got all this money
‘Cause we’re gonna spend it all on you, girl
So take our hands and come with us
We’re building a brave new world
We’ll do anything we can
To try to get you to care
That’s why wherever you look
We will be there

We’re gonna push your buttons girl
With all the rumors we’ve implied
‘Cause we’ll do anything
To get you on our side
We won’t bother with the truth
And we hope that you’ll abide
‘Cause we’ll do anything
To get you on our side

Girl, our message is too polished to ignore
You’ll buy in though you don’t know who we work for
We’ve done research so we know
How to infiltrate your mind
‘Cause we’ll do anything
To get you on our side

We’ll distract you with our show
While our rich investors hide
‘Cause we’ll do anything
To get you on our side
We’re gonna make you hate someone
We’re gonna fill your head with lies
‘Cause we’ll do anything
To get you on our side
