We're losing our rights very slowly.
We've watched our democracy go.
While the laws are changing for worse.
and communism starting to show.
We'll vote for the people we want
'till the party has it's say.
Then they'll change their mind to act
in a crazy unusual way.
When it comes to political salaries
only they can vote for more.
While it's only we who can't
reject their cost and horror.
We once had the right to privacy.
A warrant would have to ensue.
Now the police take the records they want
and the judge has no weighing to do.
With the cameras recording our crimes.
and the policemen watching to find.
All the problems we have to face
are the victims more bitter than kind.
While the number of poor increase
as the ones with money go broke.
It's always too late to complain
when it's after the fact they spoke.
Now our knowledge is kept up high
while the little men work as drones
and the world will end in poor
while the big men trade in thrones.
