From the band in my head

Verse:
Melancholy falling from the trees,
We're victims of a mad man's disease
More than just one man, of course,
America bet on the losing horse
 
Pre-Chorus:
So mixed up, society as a whole,
It's a battle for our hearts and souls
 
Verse:
Too many see normal when it's anything but
The case against this president is open and shut
Yes-men, go men, time to hit the bricks,
Co-authored problems will take years to fix
 
Pre-Chorus:
So mixed up, society as a whole,
In a battle for our hearts and souls
 
Chorus:
Nothing but trouble, so sad but true, 
Just a paper lion in a human zoo
Cages and rages mark his failing reign,
Take your toys back to your land of disdain
 
Verse:
Day one when you're gone; a national holiday?
No one will listen to the venom you spray
Go be hateful/unhappy someplace new,
Had it with you and your nightmare crew 
 
Pre-Chorus:
So mixed up, society as a whole,
In a battle for our hearts and souls
 
Chorus:
Nothing but trouble, so sad but true, 
Just a paper lion in a human zoo
Cages and rages mark his failing reign,
Take your toys back to your land of disdain
 
END

Hopefully Trump will be relegated to 'the dustbin of history', to quote Trotsky.
