American Tune

Many’s the time I’ve been mistaken
And many times confused
Yes, and I’ve often felt forsaken
And certainly misused

Oh, but I’m alright, I’m alright
I’m just weary to my bones
Still, you don’t expect to be bright and bon vivant
So far away from home, so far away from home

And I don’t know a soul who’s not been battered
I don’t have a friend who feels at ease
I don’t know a dream that’s not been shattered
Or driven to its knees

But it’s alright, it’s alright
For we lived so well so long
Still, when I think of the
Road we’re traveling on
I wonder what’s gone wrong
I can’t help it, I wonder what has gone wrong

And I dreamed I was dying
I dreamed that my soul rose unexpectedly
And looking back down at me
Smiled reassuringly

And I dreamed I was flying
And high up above my eyes could clearly see
The Statue of Liberty
Sailing away to sea
And I dreamed I was flying

We come on the ship they call The Mayflower
We come on the ship that sailed the moon
We come in the age’s most uncertain hours
And sing an American tune

Oh, and it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright
You can’t be forever blessed
Still, tomorrow’s going to be another working day
And I’m trying to get some rest
That’s all I’m trying to get some rest

fuck mitch mcconnell

mitch mcconnell
is on his knees
sucking the dick
of corporate america
and any lobby who will lick his ass

while he has his left hand in the offering plate of every small church in kentucky
as his right hand is jacking off john boehner

because he has everyone in my home state convinced
a vote against him
is a vote against god

and his constituents
are too isolated to know any better

he preys on their backwoods fears

which is why
he gets elected
and over
and over
and over
and over
and over again

he has convinced the poorest and most uneducated voters amongst us
being ass raped by life
is the key into heaven

and no real change will happen
until every congressman
over the age of sixty
is dead
