The system's rigged with insidious intent
The crooks are infamous they care not for your consent
Diabolical schemes plays out the midnight edition
Pay the piper yet success will be forbidden
They call themselves politicians.
The House, The Senate planning our slow demise without an ounce of contrition
Deteriorate the fabric and infuriate the madness
Withhold the truth with restricted information
Pit the people against each other with blaten indignation
Then strike in the midst of their inglorious degradation
Over 240 years democracy has stood firm becoming
A beacon of light and prosperity for the world to aspire to
But something slithered in like a cancerous worm,
Taking control from the people which they rightfully earned
The banks stepped in and the world began to burn
Democracy became a great pretender
Two wolves and a sheep deciding on what to have for dinner
When will the people wake up and smell the roses
When will they realize the flower is artificial and the smell is synthetic
Our environment is in immediate danger and only unity will save it
Our entire way of life is threatened
Threatened by policy and misdirection
They'd have you believe this change is natural and that we're not the cause
They'd have you believe a thing like diesel could be clean and isn't secretly killing us all
It's like pretending you didn't pee in the pool acting
Like the temperature change is normal (It's cool)
It is probable that we, as a species are the direct cause of climate change.
We're causing irreparable damage to this planet.
Radiated fish and islands made of plastic
Rivers overrun with waste and shore lines blackened Pink lakes of amethyst
Methane and carbon dioxide so thick I can't see through the smog of progress
I can't breath this air my lungs won't process
What happens when the earth's bleed dry,
When nothing's left for her to give and it's time to say goodbye?
Where would we go?
Where could we go?
Most of us wouldn't have a choice we'd have to stay and watch the world die
The haves will always rule the have nots
We were never meant to receive a piece of the pie
Carter warned us it was coming, Reagan ushered in the Bull
Capitalism begins, now Free enterprise writes the rules
Strip down the factories and set the peasants free
Inflate the cost of living and market meaningless consumption as an absolute priority
Ish ain't cheap
Raise the price of everything
Stagnate the pay rate, demand we work until our hands bleed,
Until our legs give way from the blisters on our feet,
Until we're so beaten down we forfeit the courage to speak
Give the peasants homes they can't afford with loans they can't uphold,
Fill them with false hope and the illusion of opportunity
Then change the locks and sell the key
A most diabolical scheme indeed
Capitalism runs on Dunkin
That'll be an extra 35 cents for sugar and cream
Come, your opportunity awaits!
Not enough pay to play and you're stuck with a view below opportunities gates.
We have zero control over the most important problems we face today
We look to blame but we should look no further than ourselves
We let this happen
We gave corporation the rains and said "lead the way Captain"
We elected spineless men to stand above corruption
And expect them not to be corrupted
We let the illusion seep in and take root and wonder
Why the downtrodden remain downtrodden without interruption
Trump is not a savior
One president proceeds another.
Democrat, republican... One of them will lead us under and
Bury this empire with intent bound by clouds of thunder
Leaving all that we covet to thieves for plunder.
What happened to the FDR's and JFK's
What happened to the second Bill of Rights
What happened the to "We the People"
To Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness
What happened to the American dream
How did we fall victim to corporate run capitalism most diabolical scheme?
