Tell Me Why

Tell me why?
Tell me why?

Why are they always pushing me?
Block my vision so I can't see?
Hold me down while they grind on me?
Mind your own, just let me be

Corporate men, bankers and friends
Laugh as they play Monopoly
Puppets and pawns set up the scene
Fronting a false reality

Media hype run down a pipe
People believing what they say
Closer than you ever could know
Yeah, but it feels so far away

Watch your mouth, mind you speech
Be aware, stay on your feet
Try to run, get you when you're weak
Why are they always hounding me?

Tell me why?

Mothers crying, sons are dying
Sounds of weapons, bullets flying
Never giving, always taking

Filled with lies, always faking
Never caring, never sharing
Always rough and overbearing

Why do you want to fight with me?
Tell me why?
Tell me why?

Sell them tractors, give them seeds
Help them boost their economies
Let them up, hear their pleas
Mind your own, just set them free

Corporate men, bankers and friends
Thinking that they can run the show
Never think you ever could see
Yeah, it's closer than you know
