Doomed to Repeat

Another election season is already upon us

At stake is whether we survive, or turn to dust

I can't believe some of the things I am hearing,

that if they win out, the end we are nearing

"We know all the answers," is all that they say

We'd all be heading backwards, if they get their way

Anti-education, anti a women's right to choose

Trust big business, if you don't you'll lose

Back to the stone age, back to the past

They want us to stop moving forward, stop moving so fast

"Everything yesterday was peaches and cream

Just concentrate on the good times, and ignore the screams

of people in pain, of the ones we did forsake

The only thing that matters is 'How much did we make?'

If someone has to suffer, well we say 'So what?'

They were only standing in the way of progress, shut

out their pathetic cries and 'It's full speed ahead!'

If the other side gets their way, down the road to ruin we'll be led

Just ignore our solutions that didn't work before

We know best, our ideas will lead to more

prosperous days for the wealthy and rich

The hell with the little guy, the son of a b***h!"

Yes, all their mistakes they're doomed to repeat

Apparently, they learned nothing, they're going to do it again, then we'll see

"Like magic it'll be different this time, it'll all work out

Trust in our knowledge, let there be no doubt

Only we have the answers, only we know the way

Just ignore what we've done in the past, don't be afraid!"
