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
