Shootings to war lords

Spills over hordes

Social craze of ending days

The parrots are all in a daze

-

Corruption smolders everyone

Tyranny of an awful man

No person can realize

This could happen in their land

-

This could happen in our land

The soils crumbling under surface

So gently we're sung lullabys

While surrounded by a precipice

-

Standing up for the rights

Valiantly we save others

Only if we're too stupid

To see it is a giant cover

-

A magician casts a great spell

Special words he will yell

Hiding tricks behind the curtain

As to how crowds are uncertain

-

Dead are our minds

Dead are our thoughts

Dead are our souls

Yet the show is very much alive

The static cling is still in operation

-

But, Abracadabra!

Everything is just fine

This poem doesn't matter

This poem is false

This poem is corrupting

-

Turn on the TV

Turn on the radio

Turn on the video games

-

It's time for change

It's time for what really matters

It's time for you to become informed

-

Shootings to war lords

Spills over hordes

Social craze of ending days

So fight for justice in anyway
