Will not set you free, in this you can believe.
The Gulf Coast will never ever be clean.
You can run for office but you won’t do a thing.
You are all the same we now know.
You are only in it for the power you seek.
President, Governor or Senator you all leak
With the lies we have learned to eat.
Promise your side what they want to hear.
Then get into office and disappear
On a golf course of your picking.
As you convince yourself that you are working.
That a man of your stature needs so much time off.
That your job is so hard that no one should scoff.
That you are in it for the small people.
Some want government to be smaller.
Some want government to help us when we holler.
But the system has been set up to choke us out.
The air we breathe is toxic we no longer doubt.
No politician can save us now.
Believe in yourself and try not to get down.
The Gulf Coast will be a poisoned deadly blight.
The wars will continue the rest of our children’s lives.
The truth is not something in which we delight.
will set you free, in this you must believe.
