Right now it’s going on very strong
Couldn’t vision it taking this long
It’s sitting up high on the throne
Like an everlasting kingdom
Here to take away our freedom
As if we didn’t need ‘em
Man we have to beat ‘em
We won’t do that being led by emotions
We must ignore that notion
Would we conquer this disease if we were a society of socialism?
It isn’t looking good for this society of capitalism
All of the checks and balances, free ownership of products and services
Allowing fools to be their own governors
How can a divided nation stand
Especially when everyone trying to be the man
He is trying to have the humans bow down to him
In this competition over which one is the dominant force
