A Song For The People

As soon as they're elected
Delegates are disconnected
And their interests redirected
Leaving voters disrespected
And now it seems so accepted
That corporations are connected
And the greed is injected
Into leaders we've selected

Loyalty, loyalty
To companies, companies
Not to you, not to you
Not to me, not to me
Loyalty, loyalty
To money, To money
Not to you, not to you
Not to me!

Chorus:
For The People,
Who believe in democracy
For the People,
Who fight plutocracy
For the People,
Who've died for our country
For the People,
We will sing

Democratic fabrication
Breeds a vast devastation
Now there is no relation
Or true representation
With political alienation
From the citizens of our nation
Corruption and temptation
All dictation of corporations

Loyalty, loyalty
To companies, companies
Not to you, not to you
Not to me, not to me
Loyalty, loyalty
To money, To money
Not to you, not to you
Not to me!

For The People
Who believe in democracy
For the People
Who fight plutocracy
For the People
Who've died for our country
For the People
For democracy


Stop this,madness
Stop this, madness
Our time is running out...

Is economic class division
What our founders envisioned
And is it still our decision
For political excision
Politicians need funds to run
But when it's said & done & they've won
They always have to re-pay someone
And now they are just a hired gun

It's money vs. democracy
Creating a single party
With absolute loyalty
To the ones who lobby
Not to the country, or the free
Not to you, not to me!

For The People
Who believe in democracy
For the People
Who fight plutocracy
For the People
Who've died for our country
For the People
For democracy
For The People
Who believe in democracy
For the People
Who fight plutocracy
For the People
Who've died for our country
For the People
We will Sing!
