The Lyrics

The country is in a real mess. How long before Joe Biden demands a recount?
Come gather round people and stand far apart
Democracy's off to another rough start
Did you vote with your head, did you vote with your heart?
The consequence we'll soon be facing
The crises before us are off of the chart
Down the road to hell we are racing

The lies they were spawned, the votes they were cast
The count was contested right down to the last
The gulf between parties is ever more vast
Ill-chosen words rapid flying
Removing forever the signs of the past
On the streets real people dying

With two sets of truth and two sets of lies
We're down to the roots where there's no compromise
And everyone wears a compliant disguise
To hide what we really are thinking
When ultimate power's the ultimate prize
From battle we must not be shrinking

The ins are now out and the outs are now in
And what matters most is the shade of you skin
And the guilt you should feel for your grandfather's sin
A crime for which there's no atoning
Retaliation is about to begin
And the rocks are stacked for the stoning

As "peaceful protestors" rampage in the street
The cops have been ordered to stand down, retreat
Mayors are raising the flag of defeat
Defend yourself? You'll be arrested
Other lives matter while you're just dead meat
With madness we are infested

Mothers and fathers throughout the land
Your child's third world future is already planned
Where cars, guns and God are totally banned
Except at our masters' discretion
For the sake of the future you must take a stand
Or expire in endless depression

Senators, Congressmen just heard the call
The crowd that assembled out there on the mall
Would soon smash your windows and wander your hall
Those tactics you've long been excusing
Who can predict where the next blow will fall
When hatred its target is choosing?

The virus still spreads, there's death in the air
The Warp Speed vaccine is not always there
Its after-effects give others a scare
The roll-out chaotic arranging
All the damage inflicted can we ever repair?
The world and nothing is changing
