Land of the Depraved
Lady Justice now has you firmly by the throat
The world is falling, stand by for this note
The powers usurping your means to protection
Doctors covering your inability to an erection

Dropping you when your need is so substantial
Only interested in personal needs financial
It's plain to see we're in need of a repair
As long as static prevails, why should we care?

Too many people, too little space to expand
Intellect is supplied, but not high in demand
Hollywood has the strings and you're the dancer
The ignorance growing like a welcomed cancer

Metastasizing to the potential energy of mind
It's so plain to see, but difficult to find
I challenge you to tell me where Osama's hid
Hold that thought, Angelina's had another kid

Used to be reserved for the socially unfit
Now it's just another day in the life

Used to be passed at the gravest of costs
Now it's just another day in the life

Not an end, merely a finality
Ingrained in virtual reality
A plutocracy of shame so unnoticed

Catatonic stares into the eyes of the master
The immaculate landscape decaying ever faster
Equally as cold, the master glaring at you
Picks your pockets through truth so untrue

Look to the Constitution, it's slowly burning
Eight years of tyranny, the wheels still turning
A laugh and false hope to the Hell they inherit
Lady Justice holds the right while they tear it

Another color takes place and below is panic
The catatonic stoicism slowly becoming manic
Promises fulfilled to the ones that paid them
Fake smiles pass more lies, ensuing pure mayhem

Look across the pond as they plot their revenge
Dissenting mouths shut, premature plot to avenge
"We'll fight them there so they won't come here"
A platitude now sensible to the unenlightened ear

Censor everything you see, not a form of flattery
Now we're checking everything we say

Spread the lies and scrutinize that of dissent
I can't believe the price we now pay

Now the end is drawing near
If that's what you want to hear
I'll drop to the level to satisfy

...but I'd be in the depths of Hell
