I believed the best ideas should win
The best people should be ruling
But they don’t want change

I listen to them, I try to talk to them
But it’s only lies or jokes from them
Cos they don’t want change

They distract with Nationalism
They abuse with Patriotism
‘Cos they don’t want change

They multiply culture wars
To divide into different parts
For subtraction & distraction
Cos they don’t want change

Free assembly suppression
Free speech oppression
Slogans with lies
And speeches with noise
They don’t want change

They hide their power
Add money by the hour
Hold statues of wealth
Above equality & health
They don’t want change

Gotta fight power
Gotta take power
Gotta win power
This world must change

Demagogue

I see a darkness
Threaten our light
That has created our day
From the darkest night.

They feel disconnected
They feel all alone
Too much inequality
They don’t listen any more
They have lost trust
In the perceived elite
Who got richer than they
Who couldn’t make ends meet

The global winds of change
Tell them they’ve lost control
And they believe many lies
They pay papers to be told
They want the identity
Of their yesterday’s nation
And they want more say
And less immigration

Now they won’t listen
They just want to fight
For destruction and change
And not for what’s right

And there was a void
Festering in their minds
And something dark was born
Leaving cohesion behind
And in this dark void
So a false prophet grew
He thought of false hope
The fog they won’t see through

So the ingredients were there
Now the scene was set
For him to enter
From stage right or left
The wizard of fear
He is the demagogue
The alchemist of prejudice
Emotions and fog

This assassin is now dressed
In the clothes of a clown
But his creative destruction
Won’t bring him down
He shot the future
Right through the heart
I was there as it died
And things fell apart
