A song for the people

By: Travis

As soon as they're elected

Delegates are disconnected

And their interests redirected

Leaving voters disrespected

And now it seems so accepted

(That) corporations are connected

And their interests are injected

Into leaders we've selected

 

Loyalty, loyalty

To money, To money

Not to you, not to you

Not to me, not to me

Loyalty, loyalty

To companies, companies

Not to you, not to you

Not to me!

 

Chorus:

FOR THE PEOPLE, 

Who believe in democracy

FOR THE PEOPLE, 

Who've died for our country

FOR THE PEOPLE, 

Who fight plutocracy

FOR THE PEOPLE, 

For democracy

 

Democratic fabrication

Breeds a vast devastation

And now there is no relation

Or true representation

With political alienation

from the citizens of the nation

corruption and temptation

All dictation of corporations


Loyalty, loyalty

To money, To money

Not to you, not to you

Not to me, not to me

Loyalty, loyalty

To companies, companies

Not to you, not to you

Not to me!

 

Chorus:

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who believe in democracy

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who've died for this country

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who fight plutocracy

FOR THE PEOPLE

For democracy

 

Stop this, madness,

Stop this, madness

Our time is running out...

 

Is economic class division

What our founders envisioned

And is it still our decision

For political excision

Politicians need funds to run

But when it's said and done and they've won

They always have to re-pay someone

And now they are just a hired gun

It's money vs. democracy

Creating a single party

With absolute loyalty

To the ones who lobby

Not to the free,

Or the country

Not to you,

NOT TO ME!

 

Chorus:

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who believe in democracy

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who've died for this country

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who fight plutocracy

FOR THE PEOPLE

For democracy

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who believe in democracy

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who've died for this country

FOR THE PEOPLE

Who fight plutocracy

FOR THE PEOPLE

We will sing!
