I still shake my head at ballots cast for elephants.
I shake my head at ballots cast for donkeys,
‘Cause I swear to god our leaders, they will be death of us.
There’s no ballot we can cast to set us free.
But there’s no brick we can throw that will end poverty,
You can’t blow up SB1070.
Things will never be as simple as when I was twelve years old
Reading Karl Marx in my bedroom alone.
And since there have been laws, there have been criminals.
There have been thieves since there’s been property.
And the day will come again when none of those things are around,
I just hope it’s before people go extinct.
