We thought it all was one big joke
He’s speaking Russian but he still gets votes
I’ve been sweating til the sun gets low
They hold half of the country’s dough

Can’t take these goddamn late night shows
Wet from the leak and there’s another hole
I found a bluebird with a beaten scroll
It said those liberal bastards rated low

I’m asking about the vets and Medicaid
Or why the kids and parents separate
They try to make us look the other way
This guy kneels while the anthem plays
I know that things are looking mean
But press on
These assholes want us scared and meek
Just hold on

They can’t keep lurking in the dark
With lights on
We’re gonna finish what they start
Hold strong
It doesn't matter if it’s left or right
Can you remember when we held this tight?

Ivory towers standing firm and tall
Is it a pipe dream that we’ll see it fall?
They’re starving Peter while they’re stuffing Paul
We can’t pay rent but they’re playing golf
