    Am I a smorgasbord to be eaten alive
    Sliced and diced up
    For the tastes of a majority's
    Popular vote...

    Rope-a-doped
    Into a gentrified corner
    Just because it's me

    Shall we overcome becoming
    Being more like ourselves
    In the end,
    In spite of ourselves
    Breaking free ~
    Amen corner again

    Hardly friends
    Our enemy
    In charge of the State I'm Inn
    Runs to our chagrin
    On a platform that does us in

    Lynchpin corporate exercise
    Whose demons are never exorcised
    Churches way too sanctified
    Because you're to proud to pray

    It seems often that we are being pulled in too many directions at once. So true. Keep dropping these scribes.
