Political Charade – Song Lyric

Politics interests me, but I also know to enjoy it with a cynical eye. I wasn’t as enamored as a lot of other people when Obama was running for President, and this song came out of that.

October 25th 2008

Too much conversation - no one seems to care
We only wants solutions to the problems everywhere

I find in them pollution - their words are like a thorn
How can I believe them after all that's come before

Political charade - games that children play
All the while I'm loving you through struggle and through pain
As if all the world is mine and conclusion in your eyes
To poverty and war - all the reason left to cry

Promises are valid - if only for a time
Until everything unravels and we're left only with lies

I find in them confusion - they slither like a snake
no one seems to notice until it all becomes too late

Political charade - games that children play
All the while I'm loving you through struggle and through pain
As if all the world is mine and conclusion in your eyes
To poverty and war - all the reason left to die

Can things ever get better? Seems harder by the hour
Speeches and conventions only speak to power

I find in them delusion - it's worth a second look
How can they convince us after all we've seen them work

I'll never stop loving you

a.p.t.
