Pussy In The White House

You’re scared to death of being exposed
You’re trying so hard to stay composed
But the evidence is growing every day
And no one believes a word you say

So many fires collectively burning
You can almost feel it, the tide is turning
You’re starting to lose the lapdog press
Get used to the leaks and unrelenting stress

For far too long you’ve had an easy ride
They plugged their ears when you blatantly lied
Now the rivers of truth are rolling in
And they won’t be stopped by your pathetic spin

You should be ashamed of all the wars you’ve waged
And all the innocent victims you’ve tortured and caged
But you have no conscience and you have no heart
Your words and your actions are very far apart

You’re a moral coward who loves to hide
When challenged your “convictions” are quickly thrown aside
You never really cared about the middle class
Only concealing your guilt and covering your ass

You’ll continue to hound the defiant opposition
It’s why no one’s buying your old shield law proposition
The wolves smell blood and they will follow the trail
Soon you’ll realize your best option is to bail

For a man who has no issue launching all these drones
When it comes to closing Gitmo you don’t have the stones
You claim it can’t be done because there aren’t enough votes 
So the starving get feeding tubes rammed down their throats

Even if the prisoners were moved to an American venue
Humiliation and torture would still be on the menu
You must be proud of all your human rights abuses
Citing “national security” is the worst of your excuses

From this point forward expect to be on the defensive
The reports of your crimes will soon be comprehensive
We will know the full extent of your ruthless campaign
How so many civilians have been needlessly slain

We’ll also learn more about the growing surveillance state
How our privacy doesn’t matter in the midst of all this hate
Keystone’s going to happen and you will pay a price
For also drilling north in the melting Arctic ice

So go ahead and plan that very important speech
We’re well aware you never practice what you preach
Instead of being bold you’re as timid as a mouse
Who knew we put a pussy in the white house
