Imaginary band in my head

Verse:
A slight of hand steals America away
Among the ruins the children play
In the distance a king-maker's realm
Couldn't survive with ego at the helm
 
Pre-Chorus:
A steady number worship a fool
Who's proving deadly to democracy rule
 
Verse:
Wrong is right to delusional eyes
He built a phantom on a tower of lies
The man and his mob dangerously blind
Perfect storm and the moment entwined
 
Pre-Chorus:
A steady number worship a fool
Who proving deadly to democracy rule
 
Chorus:
Where is compassion in the home of the brave?
Where is the sanity instead of depraved?
Where is the leader to match our times?
Where is the honor instead of the crimes?
 
Verse:
Blood-red dawns the darkened sky,
Two hundred gone in the blink of an eye
It's not possible yet here we are,
Closer to the end than ever by far
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
A steady number worship a fool
Who's proving deadly to democracy rule
 
 
Chorus:
Where is compassion in the home of the brave?
Where is the sanity instead of depraved?
Where is the leader to match our times?
Where is the honor instead of the crimes?
 
End

The crime is in Democrat vote fraud

You mean the voter fraud that doesn't exist and desperate Republicans are pinning all their hopes on?
