We all know politicians only go
Just halfway there,
Just halfway there.
The innocence of youth needs protection not abuse
But no one seems to care,
Yet no one seems to care.

And you sit there and watch the world go around
From your pseudo-benevolent vantage point,
While we who've been left to pick up after you
Try our best to make some sense for those who
Come next.

Now what have you done to foster the truth
Besides just hide the lies?
Besides just hide the lies?
A selfish campaign never justifies the gain,
But the means are verified,
Yeah, the means are verified.

And you sit there and insist you are right
From your popular psychological podium,
While those who rely and depend on you,
They wilt because you don't accept we need
Each other.

While sowing the seeds of Utopia,
You invoked a convenient amnesia.
You forgot how to care, you forgot how to provide,
You forgot how to work towards a meaningful life.
