Price of Entry

Welcome to the land of the free and home of the brave

Come and enjoy your stay

As choices and decisions now start to give way

Walking contradictions surrounded by the same debates

Holding onto opportunities given in the

thinly veiled Police State

Fanatics from every end of the spectrum

The riots cause the foundations to shake

Charlatans take the stage and scream loud

to present their displays

Through all the double speak,

how many can decipher the words that they say?

Everyone take a knee

Bow down to the almighty dollar

As it controls all aspects of life then why is it the

only measurable growth is, urban squalor?

In harsh times, weak and desperate minds search for a savior

Too busy keeping an awkward eye on your neighbors

But pay attention to the person behind the curtain

who is an expert at controlling your behavior

So they intentionally keep us all in a state of perpetual fear

People will do unspeakable things if they’ve been convinced that the end is near

–Jhantu Randall
