The Story Behind The Lyrics

Individual citizens (voters) have an ever-decreasing power with the influence of corporations and special interests controlling modern politics. Money is the dominant factor in political decision making. This result was never intended by the founding fathers of our nation. Citizens are manipulated by corporate run media and the welfare of the public consistently takes a back seat to desires of the powerful. The scandals of Enron and other wrongdoers have brought this subject to the eye of the public, but little has been done to combat the problem.

Text Version Of Lyrics

Pretend


Tell me what I wanna hear, then you seem to disappear
Shaking hands and smiling faces, behind the scene in so many places
Tainted money rules the game it’s time we took back control

Pocket lining and bill signing, Friday release, how they pretend to
Be the ones that we can trust, we choose them to lead, how they pretend to be

Blocking the real reformers, well rehearsed tap dance performers
Old fashioned back room dealing, call the cops cause this is stealing
They don’t want us to know, what’s really going on
