about

I wake each morning to bad news
Splashed across my phone the latest doom
Numb to the distractions
That interrupt my need to consume

But you’re on a different planet it seems
A separate set of villains
though we’re on the same team
With everybody’s head in the sand
How are we supposed to understand

Saying this is most certainly true
But only what aligns with you
and what you see and what you feel
How can you judge what’s real
This is most certainly true

Divide and conquer is their plan
From the lying mouth of an anchorman
Bickering on facebook
’Til we are Amerikastan

Facts are not opinions you choose to believe
You listened to a liar and you’ve been deceived
With babies living in a cage
How can you just disengage?

Saying this is most certainly true
But only what aligns with you
and what you see and what you feel
How can you judge what’s real?

Turning our allies against us
Praising the killers and despots
How much more can our country endure?
By the time you feel the symptoms
There will be no cure

There’s no such thing as alternative facts
They’re dismantling your freedom
As their circus distracts us
Don’t you see you’re part of the act?
watching it all collapse

Saying this is most certainly true
But only what aligns with you
and what you see and what you feel
How can you judge what’s real?
This is most certainly true

Saying this is most certainly true
But only what aligns with you
and what you see and what you feel
How can you know what’s real?
