lyrics

This chord progression is just:
Em-Dm-C-D
The moment that I lost my faith,
Mere moments before the collection plate
allowance in pocket would soon be used to pay
for a venue filled with people,
and a house to shelter a shepherd, for his car and his suits his food and everything else.
and all of his stuff was nicer than the shit in our house.
and I looked at my mom like "how haven't you figured this out?!"
She had tears in her eyes she really was devout

But I have been wondering 'bout all the squatters whose mothers wished they could abort
born into poverty sheltered by love, but it wasn't enough to afford
All of the medicine also the rent checks and all of their shitty: instant breakfast
after they'd slept on yellowed pillows and sheets
for the food for the water to raise sons and daughters
that Gia herself can't upkeep

BUT WE'LL VOTE FOR IT!
because of those men in their suits and their ties,
they're ripping of mothers
indoctrinating youth to see through their eyes,
make them grow up fast on cheap instant breakfast and never question their beliefs
they're gonna need flocks to vote for their policies
they'll strip away social programs for birth control and mental health
so the only place left-for-vulnerable-people-will-be-churches-themselves.

AND THEY'LL HAVE VOTED FOR IT!!
AND IT"LL ALL HAVE BEEN FAIR AND SQUARE!
and if you long for the liberty our forefathers reaped,
well you'll be the one that's radical then

THAT'LL PROBABLY BE HOW THIS ENDS
HOW THE WHOLE WORLD WILL START AGAIN
AND FINALLY AFTER THE STRUGGLE A SUIT AND A TIE
will be symbols, of a long abandoned time

I'm just some rando who probably doesn't identify as human in the same way as most do. I'd put my name on these songs but I feel like they are about twice as honest and half as shy as I am able to be as a person so I'm a little uncomfortable with that.
