the Two Edges of an Elected Sword

The Two Edges of an Elected Sword

Is it apathy or fear
That silences the crowd
No dissent do we hear
When it should be heard loud
To question is now treason
Protest now is a crime
Locked up without reason
The innocent do prison time
Democracy a given choice
Between one and the same
To silence your voice
Hegemony the new only game

You think that you vote for the one that you choose
Seduced by a quote to again and again lose

Is it apathy or fear
That blinds us to the fact
The only thing we hear
What the other side lack
No question is ever raised
Why a government did oppose
Now the opposition had praised
The truth now a lie that never arose
Democracy has been stolen
Two parties now really one
Their bank accounts are swollen
While they both march off your son

The next time you vote you will continue the same war
The policy already wrote by the Beast and the Whore.
