another unarmed innocent teenager’s been shot
when you’re young, black and American you’re chances ain’t too hot
the perpetrating officers seem to dodge the truth
while honest cops are hunted by an agitated youth

people fighting for the right to bear arms large and small
see no need for gun control at all
the president-elect is a second amendment jerk
and Netflix killed the video rental clerk

contaminated water is pumped into the ground
and no-one seems to give a damn how fracked up that shit sounds
their energy priority is a limited resource
while the planet’s headed straight to hell on a southbound course

the sun, the wind, the tide, the waves, the geothermal heat
don’t achieve the profits that they seek
the president-elect is a fact-denying jerk
and Netflix killed the video rental clerk

we got wars around the globe and the innocent pay the dues
famine takes the weak, but too quiet for the news
fascism and racism is on the rise again
and nut-jobs use religion as a means to an end

they send drones to fight the war and forget the worth of life
the intolerant claim marriage can only bind man and wife
thou shalt not disrespect the next man and his beliefs
thou shalt not disregard his wishes and his needs

unity can be the only way for us to cope
“join or die”, that’s what a wise man wrote
the president-elect is a vile and sexist jerk
and Netflix killed the video rental clerk

the president-elect will do his worst the next four years
and Netflix is the least of our fears
