No Democracy In America

There is no democracy in America
Only the illusion of choice
Greedy elites control everything
The disgruntled have no voice
Corporate dictators with very deep pockets
Have bought their way to the top
There are no legal pitbulls
To ever make them stop

There is no democracy in America
Only the myth of equality
Instead of scrutinizing government plans
The media dwells on frivolity
As the gap between the rich and the poor
Grows ever more extensive
Even being a middle class citizen
Has gotten far too expensive

There is no democracy in America
Only a free market full of lies
The fallout from deregulation
The whole country sighs
They capture the few
Who dare to be explicit
Because they’ve exposed too much
They know who’s complicit

There is no democracy in America
Only hope for its return
But cynicism is quickly rising
When will honesty take a turn?
How can there be change
If no one is willing to act?
If we really had the power
The whole lot of them would be sacked

There is no democracy in America
Only a rising tidal wave of fear
Threatening to drown us all
The elite won’t shed a tear
As voters get turfed from the rolls
And addicts continue to rot in jail
How long before even the stubborn admit
The current state of the republic is a total fail
