Verse:


 

With a world view bought from a five and dime store,

he backed a man who was rotten to the core,

but who appealed to his hopes and fears

of all those perceived oppressive years


 

Pre-Chorus:


 

Taking America back, not sure from who,

just blaming them 'cause his life has been screwed


 

Verse:

Easy prey for all his hollow promises,

he was there in the friendly audiences

that rang with the cheers of feeling oppressed

Slogan replaced reality, a Kool-Aid clown obsessed


 

Pre-Chorus:


 

He'd make them pay for all he's been denied,

never stopping to think about the non-stop lies


 

Chorus:


 

Conned by a con man, believes he's being held under

Never stops to think, never stops to wonder,

a true believer who voted on remote control,

who gave away the high ground and sold his soul


 

Verse:


 

You see salvation in his crooked eyes,

mistaking anger for the word of the wise

Gotta blame someone, and it isn't you

Never caught a break but those times are through

 


 

Pre-Chorus:


 

He swaggers in, this thief who's well below par

this fake hallelujah man who drives the get away car


 

Chorus:


 

Conned by a con man, believes he's being held under

Never stops to think, never stops to wonder,

a true believer who voted on remote control,

who gave away the high ground and sold his soul


 

END
