With tears in our eyes we descended on Washington.
With hope in our hearts a celebration
A cathartic purgation of racism.
Glory Hallelujah, a Brand New Day!
When we awake from our trance
There will be hell to pay

Dick does a wheelie on the Constitution.
A dinner for Powell and McCain
Pass the hors d'oeuvres
Whe push comes to shove
Politicians are always the same
Condie signs a contract with the William Morris agency.
The nation is one-again
There are no blue states there are no red states
There is just a state of mindless euphoria.
How much for a Senate seat?
Let's all dance to "Gloria."
"End petty grievances and worn out dogmas,
Ideology, I besmirch;
You all deal with the homeless
If you want me I'll be in church."

In the big rock candy mountain, there was no
Preemptive strike.
There are no mercenary armies,
That are accountable to any Law.
FISA listens to all of us;
The wolf is at the door;
Habeas Corpus is in the past.
Civil Liberties are no more.
The nation is unified,
Thank god for the war on terror
Let's bomb them all to pieces
Victory through trial and error
The Constitution took a whack
Yes we can, Yes we did,
To hell with introspection,
Let us not look back,
The money's gone, let's carry on
"Let's have no retribution"
The jails are full, we have no pull
Investigation is no solution;
Black and white, it's all alright
We can do just what we please.
The needless slaughter and refugees
Oh my I think her gown's chemise.
