The Young Turks

I'm inspired by their bravery
To root out the truth and lies
To help the ignorant people
Tear the wool off of their eyes

I admire their fearlessness
To fight the blatant perversity
Of our corporate owned government
Despite all the adversity

They hold people accountable
They challenge the propriety
Of the sell-out politicians 
In our so-called moral society

They expose all the corruption
The fear mongering media conceals
By empowering us with the facts
And not the propaganda wheels

Some think that they're too liberal
Some think they're overzealous
These "some" are "the establishment"
And I think they're just jealous!
