"Politics" as written by and Greg Graffin....
Economy, technology, does it really work?
The guy running the government's another jerk
Try to teach some values and they all erode away
You're lucky if they listen to a single word you say

What is right and what is wrong, government decides
You don't have to like the laws as long as you abide
We're all being oppressed by the upper-middle class
The government you vote for is the one that you possess

I'm so tired and now I'm through, I'm through and so are you
Oppressive fear from presidents, it's us, not the government
We control the masses of the whole entire race
Soon our streets will all get filled without a happy face

Economy, technology, does it really work?
The guy running the government's another jerk
Try to teach some values and they all erode away
You're lucky if they listen to a single word you say

    General CommentIt's about how the motherfucing fucked up fascist empire will be good to you, but only if you follow their rules, only if you do exactly what the rat bastards tell you to. If you don't they'll fuck you. They keep the country from speaking out by ruling in fear and making society ignorrant and making all their descisions for them. And what else is shitty is that Americans voted for them. They keep our land of America fucked and in despair because they're shitting us and we don't do shit.

    General Commentummm... politicians are jerks..

    stage values.. erode away?..

    oppression by the upper middle class(which is true). we as democracy vote for the government
    therefore its our government? gov. of the people for the people.. our possession?..in a way..

    no..

    if US keeps up this recipe ..for hate.. wel all shoved in a phone booth(this country) without a happy face maby?

    not the greatest most inteligent song.. they were young. the best was yet to come. somewhat interesting though; but not really
