1. Almost Funny

From the recording Songs for Troubled Times


Almost Funny

What you see ain’t what we get
you had to cheat before he’d forfeit
he was not beat you know you’re unfit
commander in chief you’re making my sides split

its almost funny
yet its kind of sick
at least no blood is running
corruption did the trick

first you say it wouldn’t be right
then later on the only way fair
you’re talking out of both sides of your ass now
hypocrisy you do not care

they’ll prop you up
your handlers will rule
figure head son
their puppet their tool
elected by less
and less we will get
can you pass this test
its not something I’d bet on

win at all cost
the position is all that matters
fairness is not your boss
industry want you to make them fatter and fatter
