Anxiously awaiting a serving of Lame-Duck

What is left but lament
Just heart shredding
Broken palace dreams
False information
Base instinct howl
Somber truth
Laying awake
Fear grips the heart
The end of everything
The end of the world

Hearts convinced
Convicted with the power
The beaten
The shamed
A nation of broken dreams
Of hopes made false
Failure unacceptable
When you are infallible
Incite the riot
The war
Slipping out the back
Suitcases full of the gullible
One more failure
One more bankrupt venture
Time to move on
To the next grift

Hard to see through the fog(possible trigger)

Controls who you talk to
Controls where you go
Just wants you safe
Doesn’t trust those people

Monitors your messages
Monitors your social media
Just wants you safe
Doesn’t trust your judgment

Treats you with silence
Treats you with derision
Just wants you safe
You make bad decisions

Controls your movements
Controls your access
Just wants you safe
Doesn’t trust you

Monitors your conversations
Monitors your media consumption
Just wants you safe
Can’t have you reaching conclusions

Treats you like furniture
Treats you like a tool that furthers goals
Just wants you safe
Can’t have you knowing your worth
