what I don’t understand is undermining
the country that you live in wondering
why the public’s out, sticking up their signs.
you fail to recognize that making america great again
doesn’t involve guns, hate, and peppered eyes.
obsessed with crime.
you let the news abuse your mind
and then you use the news to find
some accusatory lines
but your shoes don’t walk the line.
I doubt it’s you who’s been alive
long enough to see the signs
or the effects of tougher times
but because it’s you who’s so sublime
means it’s you that knows we’re fine.
