Nobody In Charge

Album: Three Chords & the Truth (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Van Morrison rails at how the powerful are always getting away with it all. The singer takes umbrage at the current political climate, the culture of fake news, and the abdication of responsibility. Morrison told Uncut magazine: "It doesn't occupy a lot of my time, but it seems to be a theme at present across the board. Nobody being in charge is a theme of the time with living in."
