    Father John Misty, aka Joshua Tillman, has released a new song entitled "Holy Hell". To no one's surprise, there is a political tinge to the new material as Tillman has frequently voiced his opinion about this year's election. After the Republican National Convention this summer, Misty broke into a full blown Kanye-style rant during a performance at XPN Festival in Camden, NJ. He also made comments on Facebook after the election, but those statements have since been deleted.

    "Holy Hell" is the third new song from Father John Misty this year, along with "Real Love Baby" and "This America". He also covered Tim Heidecker's "Trump's Pilot". "Holy Hell" is a piano ballad, but despite it's sad and politically charged beginning, the track ends on a hopeful and empowering note. Check out the lyrics and listen to the song below.

    Father John Misty "Holy Hell" lyrics:

    Holy hell, holy hell
    Damn, the future ain't looking so bright
    Never asked for a paradise
    But seventy years would be nice
    With my brothers and sisters and I
    And the impossible dream of mankind
    But I've always been the irrational type

    What the hell, what the hell
    This thing's got us all in its grip
    The economy just don't explain this
    This unfathomable, nameless rift
    Who knows if it even exists
    It's just some highly effective rhetoric
    Used by perverts who get off on it

    But all my friends
    Yeah, I'm talking to you
    The world won't end unless we want it to
    There's no one in control
    And it's our life to choose
