lyrics

It's time to run I'm gonna make them see
Their world can change if they would vote for me
These politicians full of hate and greed
Can't give the people what they really need

With my solutions all my bills would pass
No more pollution from the corporate class
They'll grind their axes and I'll cut them loose
I'll put your taxes to a better use

Sign my petition and I'll fight for you
Give me the missions that are right to do
I'm running just to keep this country sane
Send contributions to my campaign

Hey, running's harder than you realize
You think you might be down to compromise?
We'll pull some strings and we could cut some checks
Get you in a meeting with our top execs

Join our party and you'll never lose
Not so fast, you've gotta pay your dues
Sign the line, we’ll swing the votes your way
But expect us back to collect someday

It's time to run from everyone who thought
I was the candidate who couldn't be bought
Hiding somewhere up on Capitol Hill
Lying to the people my decisions could kill

The system's all I really need to protect
It may be broken but it's not dead yet
I'll blame opponents for the things I do
Soon enough I will believe it's true

I'm running over to my armored car
Back to my mansion with my bodyguard
Seems like now I need to watch my back
I've become exactly who I used to attack

I'll make a fortune or two in time
Taking extra portions from my partners in crime
Donations flowing, it'll all be mine
Talk the talk and walk along that party line
