The Politics Of Starving

This song is by Against Me! and appears on the album Against Me! Is Reinventing Axl Rose (2002).

It's time for some real world politics
Economics, history, math and English
Born and raised, and bred walking a thin line
Between lost and succeeding, it's another cannibal
The rules aren't changing, if you really don't like it
The threat has always been there
And terror always happens
(Oooh, oooh, oooh)
For all the fights
For all the songs
All we said
All we have
Is these pictures of us
If it doesn't matter now
Then it never really did
And without this
We might as well be dead

They're all black and white people
And that doesn't have anything to do with us
After all these years, it's still an arms race
After all these years, they still don't fucking get it
Lives and cultures matter more
Than capitalist interest
It's the FBI
It's the CIA
It's the ATM
It's the IMF
And the answer in the end
Fuck you
(Oooh, oooh, oooh)
For all the fights
For all the songs
All we said
All we have
Is these pictures of us
If it doesn't matter now
Then it never really did
And without this
We might as well be dead
When you are so hungry
That you'd believe anything
Well, they're selling you
The politics of starving
And what the fuck
Does that
Really mean to us?
