You never cease to believe, do you?
You believe what your leaders tell you, don't you?
Leaders tell you what they will do.
Hitler told you what they will do.
They will tell you what you want to hear,
then ignore you when they are elected.
When time comes to run again,
they once more tell you what you want to hear,
then ignore you when they are re-elected.

You wonder why the price of everything goes up
while your pay goes down.
You wonder why your jobs are shipped overseas.
You wonder why all wars are wars of necessity.
You wonder why you are asked to shoulder the blame
when your government squanders your taxes.

Who, you sometimes ask, is the enemy who
is coming to take your freedom?
And why does he hate you?

Why do the rich get tax cuts while your children
die from malnutrition?
Why does your government put you in chains
for telling the truth while leaders lie and go free?
Why is murder wrong for you while genocide is condoned?
Why is it allowable for government thugs to grope your privates
but illegal for anyone else?

When will you cease to tolerate?
When will you have enough?
When will you cease to believe?
When they herd you into cattle cars . . .
