What We Need

Lying figments of imagination
Leap across this once great nation
Spreading lies and leading sheep to slaughter
Another click on their brainwash blotter

News shows the global warming crowd
Fails to reveal the dishonest shroud
We let deception light our way
In this baby-faced, ego-driven day

What we need is some John Wayne justice
Marshall Dillion and even Festus
We need “Here comes the Sun”
And less stress on everyone
We need a Beach Boy’s song
And some Mouse Club action
Frankie Avalon films
And an Annette attraction
World War Two heros to lead our way
To clean up this crap today

Whatever happened to honest values
In black and white, with no gray shadows
Back in a time when hope was king
Doesn’t it have a pleasant ring

Instead we allow these lying cheaters
Pork barrel bums to become our leaders
Dishonest pretense has ruled so long
No wonder we can’t tell right from wrong

What we need is some John Wayne justice
Marshall Dillion and even Festus
We need “Here comes the Sun”
And less stress on everyone
We need a Beach Boy’s song
And some Mouse Club action
Frankie Avalon films
And an Annette attraction
World War Two heros to lead our way
To clean up this crap today

We have out-of-touch presidents
Their mouths move, but make no sense
It seems I’ve lost my mind
God take me to another time

Nobel peace prizes go to liars
Who cannot lead, but can stoke fires
Stirring up lies and deceit
Bullies who learned to cheat

What we need is some John Wayne justice
Marshall Dillion and even Festus
We need “Here comes the Sun”
And less stress on everyone
We need a Beach Boy’s song
And some Mouse Club action
Frankie Avalon films
And an Annette attraction
World War Two heros to lead our way
To clean up this crap today

Artist's Description

This country (USA) is too full of “soft” men. We need to get tough. This is my attempt, in a lyric, to make that happen.
