Same chair different jackass
Same chair different jackass
Same chair different jackass
Same chair different jack...

...as it slipped through the cracks
corruption took its toll
maybe our system has never been different
we�re just content with tools
in a government that owns us
or did we forget
when raising votes means raising money
one must of course raise their voice to be heard

republican�s fight democrats
third parties take the blame
the battle�s really superficial
played out for the game
but this game�s got a price
the price of stolen lives
a price being paid by the masses
while Siegfried and C.P.D.
divert your eyes

a paranoid devotion
lesser evil costs more
than votes that go to business
and politician/whores

they won�t defend you
they don�t represent you
�cause they know that money goes further than voting does
they won�t defend you
they don�t represent you
�cause they know that money goes further than voting does

democracy�s gasping
drowning in money and we put it there
so what�s the point asking
for freedom when freedom means more money here?
democracy�s gasping
drowning in money and we put it there
so what�s the point asking
for freedom when freedom means more drowning here?

I�ll tell you what the point is
if you can tell me where we went wrong
consumption�s a drug
and we�re addicted
the pushers are hooked too and frightened as hell
that they might lose their fix
to get it they�ll risk human kind

(big) business is laughing
�cause we�re in their hands
like the blood of our freedom
like parrots for crackers
we�ll do any trick they ask us to do
our leaders do the same
�cause rigged elections elect leaders who play the riggers� game

they won�t defend you
they don�t represent you
�cause they know that money goes further than voting does

...as it slips through the cracks
corruption takes its toll
maybe our system has never been different
we�re just content with tools
in a government that owns us
or did we forget
when raising votes means raising money
one must of course raise their voice to be heard
