IN EVERY SINGLE WAY THIS CULTURE REEKS LIKE SHIT
FORCE FED ENOUGH EVERY DAY, ENOUGH TO CHOKE ON IT
YOU KNOW YOU'VE GOT NO VOICE AND EVERY TIME YOU'LL LOSE
WHO NEEDS A FREEDOM OF CHOICE WITHOUT A CHOICE NOT TO CHOOSE

TELEVISION’S ON, IT SINGS THE SAME OLD SONG
THERE’S NO ROOM LEFT FOR THE TRUTH
AND THE LEADERS CLAIM TO TRY, BUT THEY’VE ALL GOT SHIFTY EYES
WHEN YOU’RE ASKING FOR SOME PROOF

WITH OUR BACKS UP AGAINST THE WALL
IT'S GETTING CLEARER THAT WE'VE ALL GOT THINGS TO PROVE
IS THIS HOW IT HAS TO BE? TRUSTING FUTILITY,
WILL BE OUR NOOSE

GET IN OM THE JOKE, THE PROBLEM AIN’T THE SYSTEM’S BROKE
BUT THAT IT’S WORKING TOO WELL
WE FIGHT THE ONLY WAY WE CAN, MIDDLE FINGER TO THE MAN
LAUGHING ALL THE WAY YEAH, YEAH, YEAH
AND DON’T IT HAPPEN ALL THE TIME, WE CAST THE BALLOT THINKING
THINGS WILL CHANGE THIS TIME

POLITICIANS LIVE FOR DOLLAR SIGNS
THEIR CAREER CHOICES GOVERN OUR LIVES
I CAN’T TELL YOU WHAT IT’S NOT ABOUT
YOUR FUTURE, YOU CAUSE OR YOUR RIGHT
