Lights Out

Lights out for the city on the lake
There's only so much more we can take.

Lack of leadership and crippling corruption
Abandoned storefronts, no decent jobs
Half-assed orange barrel construction
Where are the angry mobs?

One daily paper with a kindergarten readership
glossing over unpleasant realities
and Tabloid News has strip-
mined our brains for carnality.

We're made to fear and blame the poor
as the Corrupt in power steal our last dime
But the money's running dry, lights out, no more
the bamboozled victims may yet draw a line

Tired of being Morlocks toiling
in our broken machines
The cogs won't be silenced by oiling,
We've got to make to make a scene.
