I've been sitting here all day
Trying to understand
Why people want to rule each other
When the problem's close at hand

A little less of what you want
And more of what you've got
Is enough to keep you struggling
Without hatching other plots

But justify yourself!
Don't satisfy yourself!
You should be out there voting
Say the power mongers gloating

The left-wing rich
Trying to shed their guilt
Go knocking down dreams
Before they're even built
Don't tell me how to live my life
Don't tell me what to do
Repression is always brought about
By people with politics and attitudes like you
