I can't tell if the lyrics are sarcastic or not. This song is either deeply tongue-in-ch e e k or cringingly oblivious.

Maybe they used "political satire" because there's no "social satire" tag?

Awesome song, it has kind of a Celtic vibe to it. That's just my opinion, especially at the beginning.
