Track Name: Your Vote Doesn't Count
YOUR VOTE DOESN'T COUNT

I hope you feel satisfied
To cast a vote and close your eyes
Pretending that you matter on this Earth

Men with power call the shots
But they give you a ballot box
To trick you into thinking you have worth

That won't pacify me
So don't even try me
I'm not as stupid as you seem to think I am

If you want something different
You won't get it through their system
I reject my civic duty and their master plan

Your vote doesn't count
Track Name: The Media Has Failed Us
THE MEDIA HAS FAILED US

The media has failed us
They sold us out and betrayed our trust
So grease me up and tell me lies
Then pull the wool over my eyes
Headlines meant to draw you in
Hoping you won't question them
Telling tales without the facts
Hoping you will just react

Turn off your TV
Be careful what you read
There's poison in your feed
It's ignorance and greed

Misinformation industry
A puppet show for all to see
They won't report the facts they find
If it effects their bottom line
Or say it once, then move along
There's lighter things to focus on
Beholden to their sponsorship
To keep the dollars rolling in
Track Name: Corporate States of America
BUSINESS AS USUAL

It's business as usual
Distractions abound
A government complicit
In letting us down

Voting for change is a meaningless act
They will divide us in spite of the facts

They gave the public
Two people to hate
While businessmen siphon
Our future away

We'll vote for corruption, no matter the choice
'Cause money in politics is drowning our voice

Corporate states of America
Motivated by greed
Men in suits are in control
Let's ship them overseas

We can pretend
That we have control
But we get complacent
In casting our votes

Money is power and power's corrupt
We're grasping at straws while the system erupts

They gave the public
Two people to hate
And we didn't notice
We're living as slaves

Voting for change is a meaningless act
They will divide us in spite of the facts

Corporate states of america
Motivated by greed
Men in suits are in control
Track Name: Giant Douche Vs Turd Sandwich
GIANT DOUCHE VS TURD SANDWICH

Vote for Giant Douche
With his amazing fresh scent
He comes with extra vinegar
To get that extra cleanse

The other guy is shit
You shouldn't vote for him
A vote for Turd Sandwich
Is unamerican

You call this a choice?
This is not a choice
You call this a choice?
It's not a fucking choice

Vote for Turd Sandwich
He's got the freshest bread
We spice him to perfection
And serve him with a spread

A vote for Giant Douche
Is a vote against yourself
So vote for Turd Sandwich
Cause you've got nobody else

You call this a choice?
This is not a choice
You call this a choice?
It's not a fucking choice
Track Name: Bigots in the Ballot Box
BIGOTS IN THE BALLOT BOX

There's bigots in the ballot box
And racists on the loading dock
You say it's up to me to stop
This giant fucking voting block

America is full of fear
Indoctrination got us here
A vote won't stop the puppeteers
Just push it off for four more years

It seems their system's set to fail

But if the public sucks,
We're fucked either way

And the public...
The public sucks

An uneducated populace
Pretending to know politics
Repeating all the blatant lies
Propaganda party lines

Treat the symptoms, not the cause
Hold out for a light applause
I don't care who fucking wins
The working class is caving in

It seems their system's set to fail

But if the public sucks,
We're fucked either way

And the public...
The public sucks
Track Name: Lose Hope
LOSE HOPE

The world has always been an overwhelming pile of shit
You can try to fix it, but nobody's done it yet
We're not that far removed from burning people at the stake
But we have the conceit to think those things have gone away

Slavery and genocide and selfish, violent acts
Human nature isn't just some relic of the past
People are dependent on a system run by dopes
Preach to me again about how voting gives you hope

Everyone has a right to complain
Our system has become a stupid game
Believe in the ideals we were taught
It's foolish to believe they're never bought

I've waiting my whole life
For some meaningful fucking change

Gerrymandering
Lose hope
Blatant pandering
Lose hope
Police brutality
Lose hope
A stark reality
Lose hope
Voter suppression
Lose hope
The electoral college
Lose hope
Corruption and nepotism
Lose hope
Bribes and lobbyists
Lose hope

Lose hope
