Upheaval, tectonic shift, there's a new sheriff in town,

and he's hell bent for leather to dumb everything down.

 

From before day one this roller coaster only goes one direction,

straight down; he delights in chaos, turmoil to him is fun.

 

It doesn't matter if you're securely strapped in for this ride,

we're all going to hit bottom and crash; I'm rather unsettled inside.

 

Unsettled is the new settled, so I'd better just get used to it,

this orange nightmare spewing angry, hateful bullshit

 

out of one of his many faces, and they're all uninformed,

egotistical, and everywhere, I guess this abnormal is the new norm.
