about

From the debut album "My Country"released September 2nd, 2014.

lyrics

Counting down to November in the January sun

the odds if I can remember

just about a billion to one

Cause I gotta get sponsored by a millionaire or two

who wanna get me elected

who wanna say what I do

There's no one listening to you



There's possibility in every little piece of our bones

And I'm a man who pledged an allegiance

to past or present. Won't take me no pretense

I'll testify we've got no one to blame

If we allow them bribing our leaders

The game is rigged so you may as well leave it alone



It's gonna cost lots of dollars

Corporate governance of you

And people should not assemble

and try to run for President too

Now without a full coffer there's no power in your palm

Except to stop help electing all these corporate sons.



To these United States I plead, we need some damage control

Cause these are men who have no allegiance

To past or present. They skate through on pretense.

I'll testify we got no one to blame

If we allow them bribing our leaders

The game is rigged so you may as well leave it alone



Or you just might could help me out

Cause boy, you know what we can do

Vote 'em out you dumb fool

Vote him out, the dumb fool.



There's possibility in every little piece of our bones

And I'm a man who pledged an allegiance

to past or present. Won't take me no pretense

I'll testify we've got no one to blame

If we allow them bribing our leaders

The game is rigged so you may as well leave it

The game is rigged and you may as well leave it alone
