My old friend insomnia's here 
But just once this last political year 
I want to sleep election night without fear 
My eyes stinging with tears 
Wondering when the dust clears 
What it is I will hear? 
Is it sobbing or cheers? 
And whose cheers and whose tears? 
Will I wake up amazed that the old order's been razed 
Our society finally awoke from its daze? 
Or with the sucker punch of recognizing 
My fellow citizens have been lionizing 
The lies 
And swallowing bullshit down whole when they go to the poll? 

Believing budget-butchers slash with compassion rather than to let the business cash-in 
Assuming competence with the economy comes at the cost of our humanity 
Hoodwinked by media-trained faux passion 
Following spin-doctored narratives the way the shallow follow fashion 
Ignoring the catastrophic situation of our growing homeless population 
A social welfare devastation - you see them sleeping rough around the station 
And as the trains get more expensive - don't even think about what your rent is 
Or how our jobs get less secure as our bosses demand more and more 
And how our wages aren't enough to buy the never-ending stuff 
We need to buy to stay alive - our cost of living a living suicide 
With our healthcare no longer healthy, it's funding cut by the super-wealthy
And a diminishing education due to austerity's financial obliteration 

But we're so quick to cite futility
Invent inherent inability
In the name of false stability 
We choose decline with such rapidity 

And I find it so regrettable 
The agenda's so easily settable 
By those desperate to make inevitable 
The idea utopia isn't gettable 

But there's no evidence detectable 
Revolution ain't selectable 
Even though THE LOFTY ORACLES 
May have denounced it unelectable 

And I must say I'm curious 
Why it is we're aren't all furious 
And how it is so many seem contented 
With unnecessary inequality which could so easily have been prevented 
Instead becoming cemented like no alternatives have been invented 
Which could've been implemented to untorment the now tormented 
But each solution that's presented is always swiftly circumvented 
By the ones who all assented to the policies I've documented 
We're abandoned and unrepresented; a selfish greed unprecedented 
But we just go about our day like this destruction is okay 
We shrug our shoulders, shake our head 
Avert our eyes from all the dead 
Normalize what should be scandals, legitimize economic vandals
As systematically they dismantle rights which underfoot they trample 
And we pretend the mood is not so sombre; that's the propaganda we all conjure 
As the wrongs keep getting wronger 
The waiting lists keep getting longer
The vulnerable forsaken, fundamental rights keep getting taken
Yet so many refuse to waken to the truth of our situation! 
All this corruption, all this bribery 
My outrage could fill a fucking library 
But while we should be out marching down on the streets 
Instead pearls of non-wisdom are set to repeat 
How this is "the real world", how life "has" to be 
Manufactured demands treated inerrantly 
"Educated" opinions that hide strategy 
Promoted and parroted adherently 
Clung to despite the incoherency 

All hope discarded in this cowed paradigm 
Of the self-harming Groundhog Day we vote for each time 

And there's no evidence detectable 
Revolution ain't selectable 
Even though THE LOFTY ORACLES 
May have denounced it unelectable
