Will they ever realize?

What their doing

Thinking they do good

While they grow

In power


I can see their hypocracy in my mind

It oozes out of them

Like the juice

From a freshly squeezed bug


Can they see the red?

The red tat is infecting all of us

One by one

Slowly consuming

Like the fat man down the street

Feeding on the lies

They call a big Mac


If I could know one thing

I would want to know


Why they have to

Scam and use their fellow country man


New people come to change the red

But it's the same old story

The same old horseshit

Are they all bread together?

Or am I just crazy


My eternal thread

Pulls my chest

And shows me what I must do

I need to step up


But I need to ask

Is it just a messiah complex?

Or is it my ka


I know though

In my mind that

I couldn't step up

I would be corrupted

Consumed by the red
