Trust us
We brought you here--
And gave you slavery.
Trust us
We sold cheaper goods--
And gave you child labor

Trust us
We gave you blankets to keep you warm--
With smallpox

Trust us
We gave you justice
For the rich
Sentences for the poor

Trust us
We gave you tobacco--
And told you
It was safe

Trust us
We gave you resource wars
And feigned patriotism

Trust us
We fought unionization--
With guns and blood

Trust us
We gave you jobs in factories--
With no fire doors
Trust us
We gave you modern factories--
With asbestos to poison you

Trust us
We gave you religion for solace--
And molested your children

Trust us
Oversight is
Not good for business
(Just not good for ours)

Trust us
We gave you jobs
And forgot to pay you
A living wage

Trust us
We wrote laws
To protect the money
But not yours.

Trust us
We made history irrelevant
Tell lies to your children

Trust us
We have
Too much government.

More is less--
Up is down--
Night is day--
Trust us--

Come on now
We wouldn't lie to you--
