lyrics

Mr. I make fun of everybody equally, no you don't
Mr. you're offended too easily, its just a joke
Mr. I worked hard for this so why can't you
Mr. I pay taxes, let me tell you what they do

They got boots on the ground
They wanna put us down
But this is our town

Oh the big bad gov'
Thinking that fear is love
Trying to shut us up

Maybe I'm radical
Wanna usurp control
Make you uncomfortable

A lazy liberal
Always political
A nosy know-it-all

You're just so great
And all we do is hate
Why don't we know our place

We ask too many questions
Never friendly suggestions
Never-ending objections

They got boots on the ground
They wanna put us down
But this is our town

Oh the big bad gov'
Thinking that fear is love
Trying to shut us up

Blame it on the immigrants
Blame it on the black folk
Blame it on your dissidents, ignorant cause we factual

Blame it on science,
Blame it on the news
Blame it on bias, the defiance of your views

Build yourself a statue, build yourself a cult
Build yourself a following that's swallowing the polls

Build yourself a tower, build yourself a moat
Consolidate the power, making powerless the vote

Its a coup and you know it
They're sending in more troops make it look so heroic
Always military might, stars and stripes on the clothing
Coming in the night to fight political opponents

You're always right and there's no opposition
No conversation bout the nation that we live in
If I criticize, then you'll lock me up in prison
A constriction of political opinions

We're all suspicious, seditious intentions
All vicious, malicious henchmen
A hivemind, conspirators even
Congregate, complicit treason

Its a motherfucking coup
Its a motherfucking coup
Its a motherfucking coup
ITs a coup and you know it are we gonna overthrow it
