I should be an informed citizen
but I don’t want to be locked in an asylum
I should definitely do my taxes
yet no one taught me how to file ’em.
They want me to pick a side
but my beliefs aren’t right or left
they’re children squabbling in a sandbox
while Lady Liberty looks on, bereft.
They want to lock the country’s doors.
Our pristine shores don’t need foreign mud
yet those who scream for this the loudest
have so much Europe in their blood.
It’s all done for me, part of the future, they claim,
all done for democracy.
Then how come I can’t help but feel
these politicians have forced so hatred much on me?
