How many more times will the curtain arise in this pageant of contradiction
Hot air blowin’ so free there’s nothing to see but a race of consolidation
How many more times will the rich man’s cries drown out all of the desperation
Marching claiming the streets ain’t much of a feat without a party of revelation
Given the choice I pick none of the above

How many more times will our hopes arise despite all the complications
Promises starting to fade showing a charade to chip away at our foundations
How many more time do we swallow the crimes the ritual fabrication
Smiling shaking of hands ain’t enough to defend a systematic degradation
Given the choice I pick none of the above

In this pageant of false impression
Self-fulfilling prophecy
Lesser of two evils struggle
A mockery of democracy
In this game of blame denial
Self-delude and advertise
Distorting facts taking credit
Swinging lies to hypnotize

Hawks disguised as doves
Long ago we had enough
The decision ain’t so tough
The box to check is none of the above
