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
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
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.

This song is directed to those 'high powered' people we call politicians. Basically, the message of this song is that politicians care more for themselves, their campaign and your vote (just your vote, not you) than the people themselves. They fabricate lies and false hope in order to win people over. Even when they know what they are doing and it is evident that they are false in their actions they just use their charisma and 'insist they are right' with their course of action. The people under rule, who matter the most, are the people who suffer after their 4-8 year rule is over, their goals are half done and the politician is wealthy. The line, 'you invoked a convenient amnesia' basically sums up their actions; their 'forgetfulness' towards the real problems and issues is very convenient for their own self gain.
