A song I wrote in 2008 which was an election year.

Election Year

D – C – G on refrain
C – D on verses

[refrain]
It’s an election year
and the Devil has come to play
Frustration and fear
if you cannot have your way
and your God can’t have a say

It makes me feel like dyin’
when my life is on the line
Will happiness increase
with your formula for peace?
Will the battles ever cease?

[refrain]

First I tell ya, then you tell me
how it oughtta be
in good old Washington, D.C.
Democracy? No anarchy!
Save the babies? No, “Save me!”

[refrain]

I’m on the road, don’t spit on me
I’m trying to do this peacefully
Now I see the cold mentality
of radical new weaponry
that’ll never set us free

[refrain]
