Track Name: Red (White & Blue) Herring
If you’re not with us then your against us, but I don’t give a damn.
Do what you’re suppose to do inside that voting booth.
Should’ve pressed that chad with your right hand.

Lean to the left. Lean to the right.
Just don’t stand up straight when you take a stand

Because none of this nonsense was designed to make sense,
just put a penny in the pocket of those who deserve a prison sentence
and they’ll help you kill that fucker across the fence
if she dares to think she could make a better life for herself.

Because none of this nonsense was designed to make sense,
just keep the public pacified and fighting and frighten to death.
The lesser of two evils is the choice that’s shoved down your neck.
Choke on your freedom, if that’s what you call it, either way your choosing your own death.

Know your enemies. Listen to the celebrities paid to say it’s your duty and your right to perpetuate your chosen brand of hate. Civil discourse comes with molotov cocktail tonight.

Mobilize the police. Incarcerate the naive. Celebrate the uppercuts in tonights advertised prize fight.

But I refuse to reuse a solution that no longer works.
Dystopian future, nah, it’s the present that hurts.
Better send your drones to clone my bones if you want me to smile with every other puppet's smirk.
For now, brother, my bumper will be bare despite dirty looks.
