Narcissistic jingoist
Jack boots made from solid gold
Kleptocratic plutocrats
Stealing more than they can hold

Politburo proclamations
Doublespeak and disavow
Legitimize disinformation
Keep them down until they bow


Shock troops bathed in propaganda
The patriotic blind obey
Disenfranchise the dissenter
Xenophobe on display

Don’t fall prey to their deception
The only way out is through
Meet doubt with determination
Reckoning long overdue


We can be the change we seek
Transform the cruel and oblique
Crush the hate and plant anew
All that’s defiled we can undo

Altruism isn’t dead
Still afraid to rear its head
But despite the doubt and fear
We can still persevere

Produced by Don Gunn and Orren Merton
