I got arizona residency one day too late
To vote on this election day
Every year before I've been too drunk to register
Then I'd say, "I don't believe in it anyway"
I still shake my head at ballots cast for elephants
And shake my head at ballots cast for donkeys
Because I swear to god our leaders will be death of us
There's no ballot we can cast to set us free
But there's no brick we can throw that will end poverty
And we can't blow up SB1070
Things will never be as simple as when I was twelve years old
Reading Karl Marx in my bedroom alone
Since there have been laws, there have been criminals
There have been thieves since there's been property
And the day will come again when none of those things are around
I just hope it's before people go extinct
So vote November 2nd if it seems right to you
Or don't vote if you think it just holds us down
Just tell me what we're gonna do on November 3rd
To make sure there's no government left to elect two years from now
