Every story has it's villain, and more often than not, that villain gains it's power over situations by negating the good of those he/she oppresses. The commoner is often neglected and overlooked, awaiting a hero to avenge them and make things equal again. 

Yet, before the hero's arrival there is a period of rule that the villains dwell in, stroking their own egos and reassuring themselves of their right to such positions.

In this song, we happen upon the inner thoughts of just such a villain, attempting to drown out the grumbles of the masses who look to take charge and prop themselves up to be their own saviors. Trickery, mischief and evil are unmasked and the commoners are left to fend for themselves!


=-=-=-= LYRICS =-=-=-=

Bought out tenure
Greased up lenders
I've got a cut of the rule
Powerful friends
They say it doesn't hurt to learn to be
a little pragmatic

Protests, whining
Peasants pining
There's a profit to be made
On those common woes
So I would recommend that you make way

I will leave you ruined
(Let us vote)
I'm inevitable
I'll shove it through your news and
Lie lie lie

You Lilliputian people jump through hoops
And try to change your registration prior
To be participate but what
You'll find is that
Your vote is a disqualified

They I say I speak for greed
A strong proponent of war
Supported private prisons
That we're stacking the score
Got friends in the banks
Many scandals and "gates"
I'm relentlessly politically
Expedient in favor of
(Money money money)
(Enough is enough we've heard)
You've heard
All of this but
You'll still vote for me

Health, debt, bombings
Trump, fear-mongering
You'll give up
(We'll stand up)
You'll concede
(We'll succeed)
You'll be too petrified and broken to see

I will leave you ruined
(Let us vote)
I'm inevitable
I'll shove it through your news and
Lie lie lie
I will leave you ruined
(Let us vote)
It's so cute how you act like
You won't be brought to heel and
Lie lie lie lie lie
