Lyrics

chorus:
Lied to by the Right
Revved up by some douchebag spreadin' rumors in the night

Fascists, wingnuts, pundits, trollin' social networks
for their toddler president --
They'd never admit they really just don't give a whit
but you can see that's what they really meant.
With a kinda disgusting posturing and blustering
power-pundits strut and preen
It gets tough to rebuff all the adolescent stuff
from the faces up on the screen.

Those faces up there on the screen, well they're the
Lying from the Right
Revved up by some douchebag, armed and ready for a fight

Some gun-totin' sister playin' tyranny resister
crashed the Capitol like a thief
She said "We want to go back to when the country was strong,
with a dictator commander-in-chief."
With a passion and a trashin' as the windows got a smashin'
thinkin' revolution's in the bag
this full-moon Daniel Boone pseudo-shaman looney-tune
wraps himself up in the flag.

Got their minds tied in a flag, oh they've been
chorus:
Brainwashed by the Right
Dressed up like a douchebag, armed and ready for a fight

She fought hard, but she couldn't win the fight
against the lying from the Right.

Mama always told me not to talk to anyone who's not us.
But Mama -- that's where the truth is!

They say rioting and looting is so much worse than shooting
cuz it's puttin' the profits down
and the ruthless truth is they think it's just the smoothest
when the wealthy get to trash a town.
We used to get a bonus but now they think they own us
as they loan us our monthly rent.
And they mire us with a virus as they wire us and they tire us
for the sake of the one percent.

For the sake of the one percent, oh they were
chorus:
Blinded by the Lies
Revved up by a douche, another grifter in disguise

Some corporate fascist mob was tellin' us to get a job
when that's what we were asking for
When they called the police and wiped us off like a disease
that's when we finally saw the score.
We used to get a bonus but now they think they own us
as they loan us our monthly rent.
Now they mire us with a virus as they starve us and they tire us
for the sake of the one percent.
With regret, deep in debt, I'm reading on the net
how all my problems are all my fault
Repeated by some rando quoting paid-up propaganda
some gazillionaire's campaign bought.
Some gun-totin' sister playin' tyranny resister
crashed the Capitol like a thief
She said "We want to go back to when the country was strong!..."

She fought hard, but she couldn't win the fight
against the lying from the Right.
