What We Got
Note: In lieu of the drug killings here in my country.
What has our leader brought us?
He made promises
But he demolishes everything
Freedom stood for
Blood is spilled and pours on the floors
Of the nation our founding fathers built
Children are collateral
The poor are like cattle
And his supporters rattle and tattle like
It's a fair-fought battle
Is this what we wanted?
A constitution that talks about rights and justice
But ain't practiced or cared for or trusted?
On your knees! On your knees!
Instead of profit we got more fees
Instead of process, you have to flee
When they give you a gun
And tell you to run
And then you're SHOT.
That's we got, people.
From him, that's what we got.
