A penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
Let me give a penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
A penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
For your thoughts

They said we’d live life, we’d live free
If we opt to change, this dream would be real
And as you know the masses went in droves
Casting their votes, making their requests known

But things changed as soon as they took seats
Power turned dark and turned down those receipts
Now the voices you hear are from deceit
Well masked, refurbished, well, that’s some fixed shit

Now the people are slain, disregarded
Their plea for justice now fall on deaf ears

As the greedy get more greedy since they’re taking from the needy
And the needy are so needy they’ll accept trash from the greedy
So the deal is to control them, to subdue them, and oppress them
Cause they are militants in darkness but civilians with a harness
Now tell me how it will all end when their power will consume them
When the horrors from their arrows will defeat them with their sorrows

Let me give a penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
A penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
For your thoughts

A penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
Let me give a penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
A penny for your thoughts, for your thoughts
For your thoughts

It’s really sad that politics is naturally associated with corruption and greed. I’ve always wondered if there are honest governments anywhere in the world. Maybe in Scandannavia.

That’s a great poem. It’s frustrating that their promises often tend to be lies in the end.
