Track Name: Election Day Blues
I see you throwing stones from the top of your hills
I see you on the TV like you’re pushing pills
To the people, for the people collectively paying your bills

So, what’s the use if I don’t know the good it’s gonna do
And I’m standing on the doorstep of a country with the Election Day Blues

You’ve got the atheist, religious, the black, and the white
You’re not sure about the gays unless your money’s getting tight
Then it’s all the same, the color green is always right

So, what’s the use if I don’t know the good it’s gonna do
And I’m standing on the doorstep of a country with the Election Day Blues

You say, “Let me relieve you of all of your doubt
If you don’t like it, you can just get out
Because you give up your right to question when you learn what I’m about”

So, what’s the use if I don’t know the good it’s gonna do
And I’m standing on the doorstep of a country with the Election Day Blues

Well, you’ll come to see the people if they’re properly screened
But if they start to argue you know how to get mean
Well, am I supposed to figure just what this all means?

So, what’s the use if I don’t know the good it’s gonna do
And I’m standing on the doorstep of a country with the Election Day Blues
