These bastards stole their power
From the victims of the Us v Them years,
Wrecking all things virtuous and true
The undermining social democratic downhill slide into abysmal
Lost lamb off the precipice into the trickle down runoff pool
They hypnotized the summer, 1979
Marched into the capital brooding duplicitous,
Wicked and able, media-ready,
Heartless, and labeled
Super US citizen, super achiever,
Mega ultra power dosing, relax
Defense, defense, defense, defense

Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Ignoreland
