Blind the Truth

Things are getting tense
Reason’s draining down the hole
Bluster’s blowing helter skelter
Lies are being sold

Cameras on your every move
As you throw away the rules
And blind the truth
Blind the truth

On the bully pulpit
Biting words abuse
Decent people
Flattened by your wing-tipped shoes

You say the news is a nasty ruse
As you flash a wily smile
And blind the truth
You blind the truth
You blind the truth
Blind the truth

Break your promises
Blame the anonymous
So many lost their voice
Shifty tactics
Stir up fanatics
And you’re not the people’s choice

Your finger’s pointed
At phantoms crawling under the wall
But they’re just hard working folks
Living here with us all

Got the world in a golden noose
An angle on every deal
That blinds the truth
Blinds the truth
Blinds the truth
Blinds the truth

You can’t see us
You don’t hear us
You don’t get it
Blind the truth
