There once was a song called "Arrest The President."
I wasn't pop then, so I missed the bus a bit,
The cool kids were all rocking votes,

Killing hard rocks using carcasses as stepping stones.
The day that Chris Columbus got crucified on golden arches.
In fact that's the reason for the high horse.
Underdogs with wonderbras in a push-up contest,
It felt like Kent State the way they targeted the students,
The rest of them, stuck doing stand up at a cricket convention.
Is it the same machine that leaves the quality of life poor?
Clogging up the property that I bought with eyesores?
That clever ad campaign ain't worth
I don't care how half-naked or fake she looks,
What would she die for?
Slow down Gandhi, you're killin' em.
Now it's whistle blower vs. the pistol holder;
Justice is the whim of a judge, check his chest density,
The West Memphis 3 lost paradise,
All I wanted was a ****ing Pepsi.
Making you think you're crazy is a billion dollar industry.
They'd be charging for compressed air,
They demonize welfare,
Rich get richer til the poor get educated.
But some of y'all still haven?t grown into your face,
And I'm waiting for a brain to fill the dead space that's left,
Trustafundian rebel without a cause for alarm,
You jump into your forefathers arms.
Off go the dreadlocks in comes the income.
The sickness (the symptom)
The briefcase (the freebase)
When the cameras start rollin'...

Save the females from losing interest.
You're a damsel in distress,
Generalize my disease,
Living off the fat of kings,
Slow down Gandhi, you're killin'em.
One love, one life, one too many victims.
Media goes in a frenzy,
Presidential candidates can't debate over this instrumental.
When the music?s dead, I'll have Ted Nugent?s head hangin' on my wall.
With some friendly fire, that?s a funny term, like civil war.
Six in the morning, police at my crib.
The crucifix and vitamins, music that is pirated.
Uh, they tell me that it's not that bad.
They hold on to these tales till it's the dog that wags.

Who can pen a hateful threat but can't hold a sword?
But can't overthrow the local joker that they voted for.
They call the shots
I call the cops
Lets call a stop to the abuse of authority.

You need to cut the noose, but you don't believe in scissors.
Just bring home my **********in' brothers and sisters.
Cause they don't call the shots
I'd like to call the cops
It's time to call a stop
The truth keeps calling me

[Meadow superstar
Coming from a farm
Come away with me
We can rely on a tree-branch
