lyrics from the band in my head

Verse:
Used to believe society'd be okay,
But not anymore, reason's gone astray
Can no longer tell between right and wrong
Our collective intellect and I. Q. is gone
 
Pre-chorus:
Follow the leader over the cliff
Now a question of when, not if
 
Verse:
Pied Piper piping from Delusion Land
Just why some follow I don't understand
Are we too far gone to make it back?
Our very democracy is under his attack
 
Pre-chorus:
Follow the leader over the cliff
Now a question of when, not if
 
Chorus:
Lost in the darkness of this strange reality
Twilight has broken over everything we see
Blinded children know not what they seek
He is the overlord and we are the weak
 
Verse:
Sad but true is here forever more
Outside looking in on the wrong side of the door
Collective sinking into cynical air
Unwittingly on the road to despair 
 
Pre-chorus:
Follow the leader over the cliff
Now a question of when, not if
 
Chorus:
Lost in the darkness of this strange reality
Twilight has broken over everything we see
Blinded children no not what they seek
He is the overlord and we are the weak
 
END

Coming from a guy who spends all his time bashing other people's writing, at least you're smart enough to rarely post your own; it's hard to write something negative and sound semi-intelligent, so you've limited yourself to ripping apart others' work; bravo!

Brilliant lyrics, Mike. Too close to the truth for some people's taste, I guess.

Another great one Mike. But...you're losing hope?? Let them follow him over the cliff. Hell No! We won't go! Our democracy is not destroyed; there is hope. True he intends to continue trying to break it down, long after he leaves office in about 60 days. Hopefully, he will be arrested and locked up, and he can lead his proud boys from prison. Never Give Up Mike! Write On!

I'm losing hope and faith in some of my fellow citizens that they can accept a disgrace to humanity like Trump as president; sure, he'll be gone, but the mindset that made his kind possible is here to stay, I think; thanks, Kat

I was very disheartened and disappointed to realize "that" mindset still existed, when trump got elected. He promoted it ... promoted hate, racism, division. But...it existed before he got into office; therefore, it will continue to exist when he is gone. But with a "human" in that office, who doesn't promote those evils and who will call them out as such in public, they will eventually be silenced. Then we must stay vigilant and strong to ensure that the likes of him never gets voted into office again. AND, we must ensure that those like him (who are in office and have supported him blindly) get replaced. We have a lot of work to do, but it is doable...I believe. Just my humble opinion.

I try to be optimistic like you, but I fall short; a Trump supporter said she didn't understand because we won the election; I said Trump might be gone (might), but the mindset that created acceptance of him will go on, thanks, Kat
