Political EnemyMature

 

I’ll be left, you be right

I’ll play it loose, you keep it tight

I’ll lead by example, you just try to handle

All the little people, just like me

 

You quote tradition, I’m for the revolution

You call me a radical, I’ll call you fanatical

Two different frames of mind

Co-existing, each in kind

Wishing the other would just smarten up

But I’m not slowing down until I’ve had enough

I’ll  hold with my belief

And I’ll give you no relief

To you my Political Enemy

 

I’m your Political Enemy

Holding up a banner, bringing in the crowds

Just trying to make some sound

You got one step up

But I’m going to bring you down

Hello there, I’ll be your Political Enemy

 

I say grow, you say stow

I promise no more hurting, you preach peaceful conversion

A different spin

On every vital pin

On the big, grand plan

Represented by a single man

Looking at the bigger picture

Or sticking to small town scripture

I can admit your sometimes right

But still I’ll continue the fight

Cause you’re my Political Enemy

 

You’re my Political Enemy

Holding up a banner, bringing in the crowds

Telling them they’ll stay safe and sound

If they just keep the faith

And don’t listen to me

Your Political Enemy

 

 I say renew, you say re-use

I say cut the drivel, you think we should just stay civil

A dictator neither of is made

Or a man whom the devil bade

To corrupt and destroy

And win over the masses with a clever ploy

But I would still rather die

Then let you get away with a lie

You my Political Enemy

 

You quote the bible, I’d see you for libel

You require a contingency, I demand transparency

We are the people, we make the choice

You’d have to be deaf not to hear our voice

Thrumming in the cities, shouting in the crowds

Running your stores, building your towns

We gather and collect

To witness this ongoing spectacle

And cheer on two Political Enemies

 

I’m your Political Enemy

Holding up a banner, bringing in the crowds

Just trying to make some sound

You got one step up

But I’m going to bring you down

Hello there, I’ll be your Political Enemy

 

You’re my Political Enemy

Holding up a banner, bringing in the crowds

Telling them they’ll stay safe and sound

If they just keep the faith

And don’t listen to me

You’re Political Enemy

 

Let’s be Political Enemies

Holding up our banners, bringing in the crowds

Arguing away, nice and loud

The chips are down and the stakes are high

Still there’s no turning back now

That I’m your Political Enemy

 

The End
