(no such thing as) politics no more

old men still run the world it seems, they're out the window with your dreams
'till election time when off they go with all their party lines in tow
when they come knocking at my door, I just stare, I swear I don't know
what the hell they bother for, there's no such thing as politics no more

everything you see is theirs & all the big boys get their shares
divide the world up as they please, the human race is on its knees
the companies will have their way no matter what the people say
democracy's a corporate whore, there's no such thing as politics no more

america, no common sense, just guns & cars & accidents
a people raised on fear & hate, a cartoon of informed debate
with a puppet for a president, the theft of their establishment
is met with a resounding snore, there's no such thing as politics no more
