Not exactly the truth, but most figuratively.

Ripping, rendering, coming apart at the seams,


Tearing loose our foundation brings down the walls.

A self-induced disaster, we're pinned beneath the rubble.


The left and right coasts scream at the middle,

the middle screams right back, both too set in their beliefs.


And so, it's a disaster roller coaster on a closed track,

cursed to endlessly loop around, and around again.


Twins separated by miles of ideology,

share the same mother but now bitter enemies.


The coasts cries fascism, the middle communism,

and in in between, our political machine,


a deer in the headlights, too afraid to move.

It's hunting season out there, and they know it.
