about

The Democratic National Convention of 2016 was rigged in favour of Hillary Clinton, the Corporate Shill and Mass Murderess, against the more populist Candidate Bernie Sanders, who has consistently advocated for Civil Liberties and Economic Democracy his whole life.

This song is dedicated to the millions of Voters who were defrauded by the DNC and by Hillary Clinton.

This is also a Single, which will lead up to the full Album 'The Idols Have Been Cast Down and Rent' in a few months.

lyrics

The electioneers have at last achieved their goal.
Democracy is now owned by oil and coal.
and banks, and business, but not the average dude
who's sitting there and wondering just how he got screwed.
His student loans have piled up with interest and debt,
and his insurance is crap, 'cause they've cut the safety net.
His sister's a vet, but she can't get her benefits;
the bureaucrats in V.A. have her money in their mitts.
Their single mum's starving 'cause she has to pay the bills:
about to lose her house; insurance cut her heart pills

It's a convention of crooks and liars,
but unbeknownst to them they're kindling the fire
of a young new movement, wants to be free and equal
with peace, love, and liberty and justice for all.

The cronyist empire will crumble to dust
along with the corruption and their power-lust.
All the people of the world will unite to fight
the power of the banks and mega-corps and secure our rights:
basic income, education; invest in infrastructure.
The day will come when the billionaires' control will rupture
But 'til then we still have to plan out our new dawn
with everyone a king or queen, not just a little pawn.
The old system's crumbling, so now I have to ask:
in a true democracy, what'll be our first task?

It's a convention of crooks and liars,
but unbeknownst to them they're kindling the fire
of a young new movement, wants to be free and equal
with peace, love, and liberty and justice for all.

It's a convention of crooks and liars,
but unbeknownst to them they're kindling the fire
of a young new movement, wants to be free and equal
with peace, love, and liberty and justice for all.
