Future People of America

the carnage is in the varnish
the president’s bullshit polish
spread on Democracy’s carpet
Resist the man-child
put him back in the ball pit
all night — America sleeps in the alt-right’s target
the missiles are locked the farm kids
and city blokes and woke folk need to disarm it
look around, y’all,
the vitriol from the inaugural ball
is being written in the capital halls
and now they talking about building a wall
not just to keep out the Mexicans
but also the press’s eyeballs
so they can’t tell me and you
what these fool’s gonna rob
it’s not just all your cash and stocks
it’s also your hearts
so when the revolution starts
are you on the side of the future people
or the old geezers and farts???

Our time is now, your time is done.
Time to take our county back, son,
take our country back, son — time for some action

the message is the medium
check out the sheep come bleating in
the monster lies leaking from weak men
behind the podium seek to destroy the truth
and the meaning in it the scheming lizards
be telling you it’s sunny when it’s a fucking blizzard
so that you never know when you getting fingered
take a look at the books but he won’t let you linger
because the crooks are on the take and they already took
watch his hotel rooms fill up with ghosts as Trump boasts
and the poles melt and the planet roasts
he’s building a Noah’s arc of oligarchs
on the backs of the working class
Shout! Don’t pass go, just lasso
that asshole put him back in his tower
so we don’t have to listen to his babble…

Rise up! Time for drastic measures before our treasure
is stolen by white nationalists
Rise up! hashtag fascists get their ass kicked
Rise up!

Our time is now, your time is done.
Time to take our county back, son,
take our country back, son — time for some action
