Imagine PSB get Nobel Peace Prize for inspiring Kim Jong-un to change things to the better?

What if Kim Jong-un's decisions over the last half-a-year (sending athletes to Olympics in South Korea, meetings with the South Korean leader and Trump and softening of nuclear rhetoric) were in fact inspired by listening to The dictator decides? :)

Would the song not be more relevant to Trump than Kim Jong-un?

This is a song about boys and girls. You hear it playing all over the world.

Greetings Greendrake,

The song actually gives a pretty good account of Kim Jong-Un, IMO. In a sense, Donald Trump is giving Kim "an out", so he can leave despotic governance aside, and help his nation become a normal country, or even merge with South Korea to form Korea if he really wants to get out the game altogether.

It will be a great outcome for all (except those with TDS) if it pans out as I suspect it will.

Retro. :)

Well, we’ll see...
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Oh brother,TDS indeed. you types have no powers of discernment. you weeping willows see Hitlers under the bed. anyways, back on point, you have the song being about a dictator tired of his situation and wanting to change....and here you have a actual dictator, wanting to meet at a summit to disengage from his nuclear ambitions. it is pretty damn close. I would put this as another PSB song mirroring real life!
