​I Voted For Nader

This song is by Thought Riot and appears on the album Sketches Of Undying Will (2003).

Poignantly phrased to shift the burden of the blame
Sick and tired but you keep on marching in their same old parade
Accuse, construe - dare I even venture - abuse,
Frustrations channelled through the paths worn well with use

Binary politics, packaged sound bite rhetoric;
And you think it makes no difference?
Watered down party lines, beholden to corporate ties;
And you still inquire why?

Maybe you can tell me when my vote was decided for me?
Oh, oh... Oh, oh
I guess the enemy of the enemy, is still the fucking enemy
Oh, oh... Oh, oh.

And one more time around,
The played out reasons why:
"Jack knife the diesel to let the bicycle pass on by"
Reproaching failed attempts
At restoring representative government
This poli-earthquake is long over due

Plastic smiles and candy lies,
Prestige built on family ties;
And you find it so offensive.
Dirty mouths and muddied hands,
Promises written in sand;
Still every election you comply?

Maybe you can tell me when my vote was decided for me?
Oh, oh... Oh, oh
I guess the enemy of the enemy, is still the fucking enemy
Oh, oh... Oh, oh.

A pointed finger, a furrowed brow,
Relying on the way's it's been,
To get us through the now
A waning courage, just play it safe.
Well this is where safe's landed us: The problems of today!

Reach out a broken hand! - You have the right to make demands!
Reach out a broken hand! - We have the right to make demands!

Maybe you can tell me when my vote was decided for me?
Oh, oh... Oh, oh
I guess the enemy of the enemy, is still the fucking enemy
Oh, oh... Oh, oh.
