about

POLITICIAN was written over the summer of 2016 in response to the political atmosphere and from the perspective of a laid-off factory worker. I listened to the politicians saying the things the masses wanted to hear, sometimes even what I wanted to hear, but knowing full well most of them won't listen to me, or the mass of constituents. I'm also convinced they're not listening to the laid-off factory worker.

lyrics

LYRICS:

Press me, impress me
with your big shiny...
with your big shiny, slick and loaded run
You’ve got the answers
We got the cancers
So power hungry, you could eat the sun

Keep on waving, smile with a pretty face
We’ll prop you up when you’re falling down
and get you to your place

Hey man, what can you do for me?
Does money make you listen?
To get my vote you’d say anything
You’re just another politician

Your love of Jesus,
it runs in seasons
Only on Sundays you believe in God
See, I’m a poor man
They closed my factory
I pray for money with my bootstraps up

Keep on waving, smile with a pretty face
I’m sure these suckers will hold you up
and get you to your place

Hey man, what can you do for me?
Does money make you listen?
To get my vote you’d say anything
You’re just another politician

Feed me your lines
Sell me your lies
Baby, it’s all for show

Hey man, what can you do for me?
Does money make you listen?
To get my vote you’d say anything
You’re just another politician
You’re just another politician
You’re just another politician
