I’ve stolen money
and I’ve given my money away
I’m not a hoodlum and I’m not Robin Hood
You know it’s funny
how black and white make grey
What’s wrong or right? Or fair; or bad; or good?
I’ve been jealous
and I’ve been the one betrayed
I’m not a monster, nor am I a victim slain
I’ve been zealous
my mistakes have been displayed
but without forgiveness, all messes leave a stain.
I’ve been beaten up
and I’ve thrown a sucker punch
I’m not a bully and I’m not a punching bag
But I keep my chin up
because I have hope, it’s just a hunch
love is winning; and this is coming from a fag.
Though we all think our shit don’t stink
We don’t need saviors, we need to find our common ground
Will lead us quickly to the brink
shake more hands, break less bones, a new way must be found.
The president isn’t yearning
to save us from ourselves
Either one is a paid-off talking head
Self-reliance is worth learning
Don’t be sheep, or little elves
Work together and know your neighbor, because Washington is dead.
The system’s broken
It can fix nothing, just as it was designed
Take back your power, and talk more with each other
A vote is just a token
compared to the power of your mind
Let’s solve one problem, and then let’s solve another.
