Song from the band in my head

Verse:
Monsters are real on the T. V. screen,
Surreal comedians in their nightmare scene,
Laugh track one-liners with a straight face
What kind of madness now rules this place?
 
Pre-Chorus:
If you believe them, you're just a fool
Political jesters rule me, they rule you
 
Verse:
Vampires and zombies take the stage,
Full of shit and full of rage
Feign concern for the little guy,
While they machine gun lie after lie
 
Pre-Chorus:
If you believe them, you're just a fool
Political jesters rule me, they rule you
 
Chorus:
What nightmare will be the next in line
Creating chaos saying everything's fine
One side of their face a reassuring smile,
Act like giving when they take all the while
 
Verse:
Is there no one left of the thinking well-read?
See the propaganda we're being force-fed
Thinking for yourself is a thing of the past
Vanishing breed and they'll be the last
 
Pre-Chorus:
If you believe them, you're just a fool
Political jesters rule me, they rule you
 
Chorus:
What nightmare will be the next in line
Creating chaos saying everything's fine
One side of their face a reassuring smile,
Act like giving when they take all the while
 
END
