Lyrics from the imaginary band in my head

NOT a script, I have no idea why it's listed as such:
 
Verse:
Long journey nears an early end
What's been a given we now have to defend
Pillars that hold us crumble to the ground
Democracy dying with a tweet and a crown
 
Pre-Chorus:
Use words as our weapon of choice
The crazy and surreal now given a voice
 
Verse:
 
Veer left, veer right, with nothing in between 
All one or the other in our upside down scene
Compromise viewed as a kick in the nuts
Bleeding on the vine from a million tiny cuts
 
Pre-Chorus:
Use words as our weapon of choice
The crazy and surreal now given a voice
 
Chorus:
We stand at the crossroads of left vs. right
Unable to see clearly in this self-inflicted night
Firing blindly at the hated other side
Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide 
 
Verse:
Out on the fringes the cause of our war
Once we could compromise but not anymore
Total annihilation now the only way
Give no quarter is the politics we play
 
Pre-Chorus:
Use words as our weapon of choice
The crazy and surreal now given a voice
 
Chorus:
We stand at the crossroads of left vs. right
Unable to see clearly in this self-inflicted night
Firing blindly at the hated other side
Nowhere to run to, nowhere to hide 
 
 
END

Excellent lyrics, Mike. I could imagine you belting them out with the rest of the guys.

Thank you, Hull--I agree with one thing I was told, the word 'early ' was originally 'premature', so I changed it; maybe they DO know best?

It may be time for a 3rd political party. Well done, Mike.

Well, we need one to replace what the Republican Party used to be, relatively sane--thanks, Penny
