Out Of Control

Out of Control

So many problems are on the rise, 
We have two individuals that have 
Appeared to have lost their mind, 
Whoops maybe I'm speaking a little out of line.
 
Make your own opinions 
About what's going on. 
All I know is that I'm not alone; 
It's like living out a reality show. 

Social media is going crazy,
Every time we log on,
Someone has said something crazy. 
Everyone has a problem with something, 
But when it comes to government 
Everyone becomes a critic.

Why can't we have an honest leader? 
A person like honest Abe, 
A leader with a vision, 
a man whom freed the slaves.
 
We need leaders and believers,
To help us fix the things that are wrong. 
Instead we have individuals judging each other
Based on all the wrong things they've done.
 
Like watching a court show, 
But the judge is judging wrong. 
There's only one way to make a difference, 
One way to make sure that people listen; 
Stand out on the PA system.
 
May I have your attention please, 
I've got something I'd like to say; 
For all of those who want to break out of the system,
This is your chance let’s form an intervention.
 
Forget about who's constitutionally correct, 
Or whose plan sounds more direct. 
The truth is we need to return to our roots,
Our nation was founded on biblical truth; 
And I think it's about time we go back to living true.
