lyrics

The power you give the government will, in equal measure, be used against you

Everybody is the same
We are all human, is that so strange?
Left side, right side spread the hate
Why do we all take the bait?

The government wants to be all powerful
The more you give the more it will take from you
The government wants to be all powerful
That's the masquerade
That's the masquerade

If you really care for me
Don't pass more laws, just let me be
The more you give the more they take
The rights you give up can't be replaced
The government wants to be all powerful
The more you give the more it will take from you
The government wants to be all powerful
That's the masquerade
That's the masquerade
That's the masquerade

A majority of both Democrats and Republicans passed the NDAA which authorizes the federal government to incarcerate U.S. citizens without hearing or trial. George Bush started many wars and Barack Obama has bombed more countries than Bush. They are all beholden to the military industrial complex. We are fighting over who is the worse candidate, the reality t.v. star or the crony politician. As we fight over mean tweets, women and children are dying from our bombs!

The government wants to be all powerful
The more you give the more it will take from you
The government wants to be all powerful
That's the masquerade
That's the masquerade
