Thoughts In An Election Year
May I offer a suggestion
While you're reaching for perfection?
You could use some extra protection
Against the corporate infection.
Start by asking questions.
Don't let them answer you with silence.
They have a history of violence.
Profit distorts their priorities.
We can't outspend these "authorities".
The precious metal, what is it really worth?
Though I am a mere spectator
My respect could not be greater
For the average corporate traitor
Who refuses to cater
To the demands of the greedy hater.
The approval we crave
Can, at it's worst, dig logic a grave.
You reach for a relic soaked in history
To take the pulse of what will be.
How long can you hold a moment?
Please excuse me while I observe
That the lies keep growing more absurd
And while I'm certain that you've already heard,
I must admit it weighs upon the nerves
