Welcome to our f-ed up reality, kids,

where money Trumps common decency

Where the powerful shit on the weak,

where 'alternative facts,' another word for lies,

are freely substituted for truth, and the truth is,

they hold all the cars, while you get the shaft

I saw the photo of you'll crying,

while the politicians gloat to the NRA

We're so sorry we let it all turn to shit,

We should be ashamed, but some us cheer

Giving the power to those who don't care

about you, or me, or their fellow travelers

in this race known as humanity.

for somewhere along the line, theirs was lost,

auctioned to the highest bidder, which ain't you or me

The struggle for change will be tough, rough,

but it's up to you to save us from ourselves

For it's gotten so bad, we no longer see

the train is off the track, and headed for the cliff
