The Lyrics

Do they stress you out?
They are faking their smiles and lying to the crowd
And you say how inappropriate
They want you to vote for them today
But tomorrow they'll leave you apart you see
'Cause they can't help it

And here they go manipulating the voting results
Slap them with a broken ballot box
People didn't vote for this guy, someone else did it already
If only I could hunt those swindlers

And all I really want is less promises
A way to shut their stupid mouths
And all I really want is facts and actions

Do they wear you out?
You must wonder why they're reckless and so pissed off
They're consumed by the chill of military
I'm like Mandela
I like to be released and not being shut up
I'm frustrated by your victory

And I am frightened by the corrupted ways of those men
They're nothing but a bunch of losers
And I'm manipulated by the fundament'list man
I'm sick of his dogmatic nature yeah

And they don't give a sh*t about your sorrows
It's someone else's, but not theirs
And they don't give a sh*t about ethics

Enough about this, let's talk about hunger for a minute
Enough 'bout poverty, let's talk about war for a while
The conflicts, the violence and the sound of missiles falling all around...
All around

Why are you so petrified and silent?
Because you can't handle this
Did you think about the civils, the wounded, the orphans?
Please help them before they die
Or do you long for the next elections?

And all you guys need is intellectual intercourse
A way to get your brain much bigger
And I have no concept of war other than it is frightening
If only I could kill the killers

And all I really want is some peace man
Throw the weapons to the ground
And all I really want is a dialogue

And all I really want is their freedom
A way to get their hands untied
And all I really want is some justice...

Nice use of "dogmatic". Pacing's a little off, but a very good parody otherwise, so 4-5-5.
