Poignantly phrased to shift the burden of the blame.
Sick and tired, but you keep on marching in the same old parade.
Accuse, construe; dare I even venture abuse?
Frustrations channeled through the paths worn well with use.

Binary politics, packaged sound bite rhetoric;
And you think it makes no difference?
Watered down party lines, beholden to corporate ties;
And you still inquire why?

Maybe you can tell me when my vote was decided for me?
I guess the enemy of the enemy is still the fucking enemy.

And one more time around the played our reasons why:
"jack knife the diesel to let the bicycle pass on by".
Reproaching failed attempts at restoring representative government.
This poli-earthquake is long over due.

Plastic smiles and candy lies,
Prestige build on family ties;
And you find it so offensive.
Dirty mouths and muddied hands,
Promises written in sand;
Still every election you comply?

Maybe you can tell me when my vote was decided for me?
I guess the enemy of the enemy is still the fucking enemy.

A pointed finger, a furrowed brow -
Relying on the way's its been to get us through the now.
A waning courage, just play it safe.
Well this is where safe's landed us: the problems of today.
Reach out a broken hand;
You have the right to make demands.
REACH OUT A BROKEN HAND;
WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE DEMANDS!

Maybe you can tell me when my vote was decided for me?
I guess the enemy of the enemy is still the fucking enemy.
