lyrics

A well advertised plan,
Targets purposely missed.
And straightforward debates full of groans and scorn and hisses.

This century-old game
Amazes by its depth.
Painstakingly earned fame
To be crushed on a wrong bet.

However loud I make my voice in my cage, you never step into my world.
However loud I make my voice in my cage, you never dare to heed my words,
As sharp as crystal shards.

Opposite sides to tame
And deeds to discredit.
The same old tricks are played yet the polls have reached the ceiling.

Another smiling face,
Another fool to rate, hate, hate.
Attention is the aim.
Relevance second-best.

However loud I make my voice in my cage, you never step into my world.
However loud I make my voice in my cage, you never dare to heed my words,
As clear as crystal shards.

And laws are made, unmade, and made again,
And hands are waved, shaken, tied, clenched.
And pawns are placed, praised, bribed, replaced.
Anything thrown away is never missing.

Today a spark of change
Was smothered in the din
Of all the futile rants
One is used to tolerate.

However loud I make my voice in my cage, you never step into my world.
However loud I make my voice in my cage, you never dare to heed my words.

No matter what you say,
No matter what you claim,
No matter what you aim,
You're one of us.

One look at where you stand
Urges you to escape.
Wherever lead your steps,
You're one of us, this time.

The last scapegoat is now dead.
Our fingers are pointed at
The newborn of this race.
We owe you all.

You may holler at your peers.
They never had to ever heed our words,
As sharp as crystal shards.
