lyrics

You spend your whole life chasing down the dreams that you were sold
But before you knew the game was fixed, you did what you were told
You learned about education through some philanthropic pitch
But don’t kid yourself learning is a business for the rich

It’s not racial extrication
This moral crisis we see
It’s not middle class lack of patience
or some erotic disease

It’s a billionaire's democracy
If it makes you rage, then they all get paid
It’s a billionaire's democracy
It's the new golden age of the old masquerade

You settled down and find a home, with your family you feel blessed
You work your job and your pay your bills but to them you're second best
You strapped a deed across your back as life was to begin
But the picket fence around your house is barb wire & keeps you in

It’s not racial extrication
This moral crisis we see
It’s not middle class lack of patience
or some erotic disease

It’s a billionaire's democracy
If it makes you rage, then they all get paid
It’s a billionaire's democracy
It's the new golden age of the old masquerade

The 1% of the nation that owns 40 of the wealth
Head corporate entities that profit off your poor health
You say you want a leader that is finally on your page
You better run for yourself because they're mostly corporate paid
It’s not racial extrication
This moral crisis we see
It’s not middle class lack of patience
or some erotic disease

It’s a billionaire's democracy
If it makes you rage, then they all get paid
It’s a billionaire's democracy
It's the new golden age of the old masquerade
