Into The Establishment

So you’ve got your following
And your righteous cause
Every speech you make is followed
By thunderous applause
Now the voting’s over a landslide
Yes! power’s yours
But are you prepared for the reality
Of what goes on beyond those doors
The ingrained entitled power
Honed from years of corrupted minds
Can you really go on to change this
With hope your only guide

Where behind every corner an enemy
Disguised in friendly form
Where honesty is frowned upon
Deviance is norm
This Establishment of corruption
Lies, a great tradition of greed
While out there in the real world
People suffer in great need.
