    Political World"

    We live in a political world
    Love don't have any place
    We're living in times
    Where men commit crimes
    And crime don't have any face.

    We live in a political world
    Icicles hanging down
    Wedding bells ring
    And angels sing
    Clouds cover up the ground.

    We live in a political world
    Wisdom is thrown in jail
    It rots in a cell
    Is misguided as hell
    Leaving no one to pick up a trail.

    We live in a political world
    Where mercy walks the plank
    Life is in mirrors
    Death disappears
    Up the steps into the nearest bank.

    We live in a political world
    Where courage is a thing of the past
    Houses are haunted
    Children unwanted
    The next day could be your last.

    We live in a political world
    The one we can see and feel
    But there's no one to check
    It's all a stacked deck
    We all know for sure that it's real.

    We live in a political world
    In the cities of lonesome fear
    Little by little
    You turn in the middle
    But you're never sure why you're here.
    We live in a political world
    Under the microscope
    You can travel anywhere
    And hang yourself there
    You always got more than enough rope.

    We live in a political world
    Turning and trashing about
    As soon as you're awake
    You're trained to take
    What looks like the easy way out.

    We live in a political world
    Where peace is not welcome at all
    It's turned away from the door
    To wonder some more
    Or put up against the wall.

    We live in a political world
    Everything is hers and his
    Climb into the frame
    And shout God's name
    But you're never sure what it is.
