The Acquiescence

Pretending to care about actual change
Until they’re safely out of range
They convince themselves they talk a good game
But they’re determined to keep things exactly the same
Shocked by the loathing and widespread contempt
Can’t even bother to make an earnest attempt
Feigning sympathy for your tales of woe
All while strengthening a brutal status quo

Slaves to corruption and leaders who kill
They bombed millions and stuck you with the bill
They don’t give a fuck about the working poor
They all line up to support the next war
Afraid of offending their biggest donors
Constantly making embarrassing boners
They rigged their own system to put forth a loser
Who couldn’t even defeat a racist abuser

A revolt is raging within their ranks
This is what you get for defending the banks
The knives are out and blood will be shed
They won’t rest until you’re dead
But go on, keep pursuing your conspiracy theory
As your fading supporters grow increasingly weary
They don’t believe your opposition is bold
They know too well how easily you fold
