Tell me, what you you see

in his message of chaos, not reality,

 

that's for sure. You're Kool-Aid clouded eyes

don't see a hateful man who's anything but wise,

 

spouting anger, spouting distrust, spouting intolerance,

makes no difference to you, truth never stood a chance

 

against what you wanted to see, a wise man pushing the buttons,

in reality a court jester, an idiot, and a glutton

 

Not for food, although he is that too--no, for power,

adulation, acceptance, as he sits in his ivory tower,

 

spinning alternate with the ease of a con man

His truth is a beach, every lie, a grain of sand

 

So, tell me how do you see through those rose-colored glasses,

His lies like a drug of delusion to some in the masses
