Election fever

They speak your mind when you’ve no mind of your own,
vote for the shysters and they’ll take your home.

don’t be afraid to speak for yourself.

they say
seek and you shall find
but that’s just them
speaking your mind.

We know that the system ain’t right,
but who’s going to mend it?
not them
they’ll defend it to the end.

and the end is where we all will be
if you let them speak for you and me
get real
if you feel it ain’t right
it ain’t right.
