500 Days—'Deluded and Divided'

 

Verse:

 

I don't recognize this 'Land of The Free,'

the harder I look, the less I see

When did everything start to stand on its head?

When did people not hear the hateful he said?

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

They're business as usual, as he burns it all down,

don the knee pads for the con who wants a crown

 

Verse:

 

Saying nothing as he puts his plans in place,

mistake a grimace for the smile pasted on his face

a knee-jerk defense of hateful words and deeds

lambs to the slaughter, go wherever he leads

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

They're business as usual, as he burns it all down,

don the knee pads for the con who wants a crown

 

Chorus:

 

The world needs saving from this red-faced nightmare,

yet, so many just go blindly on without worry or care

A country so deluded and divided cannot stand,

purposeful chaos from an egotistical, vengeful man

 

Verse:

 

I've heard all your excuses, how he's strong and wise,

but you won't see compassion in his gleaming eyes

Fever for power and glory obvious to see if you look,

I'm warning all, we've got to give this joke the hook

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

They're business as usual, as he burns it all down,

don the knee pads for the con who wants a crown

 

Chorus:

 

The world needs saving from this red-faced nightmare,

yet, so many just go blindly on without worry or care

A country so deluded and divided cannot stand,

purposeful chaos from an egotistical, vengeful man

 

END
