Uncle Sam, Where’ve You Been?

What a predicament we’re in..

Uncle Sam where’ve you been?

This country isn’t in

The shape you envisioned for us back then..

You wanted taxation with representation

But now, the abuse of power is blatant

Corporations devoured the nation

The land of milk and honey, soured.. its population, complacent

We fought against aristocracy

De-throned the prince and the king

Established democracy

And spread our philosophy

A government by the People, for the People

This was our ideal

Taxes funded it by the People, for the People

But now we’re given a raw deal

Inequality the likes of which you never imagined

Has left the zeitgeist bitter and ravaged
