This is a bit random, I'm not sure what the exact message is. I was listening to "Waltz to Eva and Che" from Evita, so yeah.

I will walk out of the door if you do not tell me,
How long can you wait until you reveal all.
You never told me how you could stand and face them and lie?
Tell me before I leave for the horizon,
Tell me before I ride away into the night.
Why did you lie to us all?

There is evil everywhere around us,
The government is corrupt,
We all know that,
And yet, dear, you never told me how.
How can you be so short-sighted,
When all that really matters is our great nation?

If you said you'd do that then why do it later?
Why not do it now and get it over with?
Go somewhere nicer, if you want an easier challenge,
Why pick our great nation to play chess with?
Why gamble our nation's welfare for your own ends-meet?

Your body is dying,
Your legacy lives on,
And yet your task is left unfinished.
