Greed on T. V, greed in our posts,
greed in our everyday, greed is our host.
 
Screw the past, screw others, I got mine,
I don't care how you're doing, I'm doing fine.
 
Restless and wild, helpless to scream,
want to wake up and have this to have been a dream.
 
While nightmares fade, this, I'm afraid, is here to stay.
Approval rating stands at forty two percent--no way!
 
You can make all your excuses, fool yourself to believe
that you support him because he's the best--deceive
 
yourself that he's just like the others, that he behaves
not like an overlord, and we're not his slaves.
 
But as our wise leader, who sees what we can't see,
without instability in his family tree.
 
Greed rules the day, greed rules the night,
paints an ugly picture, it's such a depressing sight.
