Democracy - Lyrics

This democracy we have, if you can call it that
Is just a shadow of the thing it was cut out to be
The freedom it should bring is a ruthless autocrat
Just an end in itself

Now the system‘s main goal is self preservation
Offering freedom as conciliation
And we take everything like sheep
Promises not meant to keep

Who could ever figure out where it went wrong
And now we are singing the same silent song
So are we just victims who suffer and fail
Our actions just pointless and to no avail

Or will we be known as the ones who did care
Who finally shook off their numbness and scare
Opposing the lobby of failure and greed
Good judgement as guideline then taking the lead

This democracy we have, if you can call it that
Is just a shadow of the thing it was cut out to be
The freedom it should bring is a ruthless autocrat
Just an end in itself

This democracy we have, if you can call it that
Is just a shadow of the thing it was cut out to be
The freedom it should bring is a ruthless autocrat
Just an end in itself

This democracy we have, if you can call it that
Is just a shadow of the thing it was cut out to be
The freedom it should bring is a ruthless autocrat
Just an end in itself
