Dad says i know nothing bout politics
He says hitting the N-O-T-A is escapist.
I understand a lot of noise about upcoming elections
I can’t make much sense of all that commotion.
I am only eighteen and Im already bracing under exhaustion.
I’ve looked to ideology for salvation
But I can’t make no connection.
I want to cheer for liberation
But too much of it can be sedition.
I want to root for an end to class division
But I dread the inevitable appropriation
It’s just the hammer-sickle brings back a lot of blood I saw at ten on the television.
I want to root for a woman Chief minister
But she starts to talk and things get quite sinister.
Your liberalism is a watered down wonder,but I can offer zero adulation
Your conservatism is a wonderful veil for a neo liberal transition.
Your liberalism is what can WE do for the oppression
And phrase our contributions
clever so the victims kneel at our feet from gratification
We care about you SO MUCH for minorities as potential electors
just dont bring up the gore or you are fit for apprehension.
And some of them ministers
care a lot about women
they will tell us our domain
and go hunt out our sisters.
our fire need no mediators
Wont have you hang upon our violations
Need no reflection in you as a validation.
wont arise and evanescence
according to your convenience.
Won’t know limitation
from no constitution.
I thought democracy was all about us
but forget the fuss
that parts the toughest
and now you got the citizen
on your strings like puppets
and i say this from no feeling of harshness
its just because
i refuse to be a silent witness
