"Lyrically, ‘Million Dollar Loan’ deals with a particularly tone deaf moment in Donald Trump's ascent to the Republican nomination. While campaigning in New Hampshire last year, he attempted to cast himself as a self-made man by claiming he built his fortune with just a ‘small loan of a million dollars’ from his father. Not only has this statement been proven to be wildly untrue, he was so flippant about it. It truly disgusted me. Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he is unworthy of the honor and responsibility of being President of the United States of America, and in no way, shape or form represents what this country truly stands for. He is beneath us." - Ben Gibbard

LYRICS
From a great height he's looking down on his city at night
From gilded room of gold, marble and soft perfume
And he's proud to say he built his fortune the old-fashioned way
Because to succeed there's only one thing you really need

A million dollar loan
Nobody makes it on their own without
A million dollar loan
You'll reap what you've sown from
A million dollar loan
Call your father on the phone and get that
Million dollar loan

His enemies can't contain the flames of jealousy
With brutish charm the women flock to be on his arm
Because it's a sign of weakness to apologize
And he counter sues from any corner he's backed into

A million dollar loan
Nobody makes it on their own without
A million dollar loan
To cast the first stone you'll need
A million dollar loan
Every ascension to a throne starts with
A million dollar loan

A million dollar loan
Nobody makes it on their own without
A million dollar loan
You'll reap what you've sown from
A million dollar loan
Call your father on the phone and get that
Million dollar loan

A siren screams through the city as he falls asleep
The campaign begins again at the break of day

A million dollar loan
Nobody makes it on their own without
A million dollar loan
To cast the first stone you'll need
A million dollar loan
Every ascension to a throne starts with
A million dollar loan

A million dollar loan
Nobody makes it on their own without
A million dollar loan
You'll reap what you've sown from
A million dollar loan
Call your father on the phone and get that
Million dollar loan
