What’s the point of this?
Politickin’, posturin’ and bullshittin’;
pretend to care and to be pissed
gotta outdo the other,
hit the talking points and smother
the truth with bullshit.
It ain’t even lying anymore
we ain’t even trying anymore;
you can put the truth on the web
people still choose the lies instead.
Playing on fear like a piano,
numbers fly, but you don’t know
where they come from
that’s how it’s done, son.
Can’t believe the camels we swallow
can’t believe the paper people we follow.
Now I got my side and
you got your side and
we chose our answers before the questions;
alliances define interpretations.
Lost sight of what’s important,
politics is just and another sport,
‘cept everybody loses when
we play this stupid game.
Rather fix the blame
than the problem.
Do we really think the right or left
can sort out this giant mess?
Do we really think the needs of the many
can compete with those of the few with money?
And how can we demonize
just one side
when the pig and the human
start to look so much akin?
