Dedicate a life
to the dying breed
Throw a punch into the face
of vacant leaders and leave

Chloroform the singer
who has nothing to say
Stare in wonder as the masses
sing along anyway

Pull apart the actors
pretending to grieve
They never went to the funeral
and they never believed

Shake your burning placard
on the government lawns
Have faith that there is consequence
in protest songs

Bulldoze the pedestrian
blues and the beige
And those who only write
to get blown and get paid

Songs about roses
and poisonous lies
Every last rose says
you're not even trying

When nobody asked you and
nobody cares
If we never hear another
song about roses again

We don't need songs about roses
We don't need your terrible blues
We don't need songs about roses
Please sing me something new
All that we ask for is truth
