Great speech! Well said!
Speak loud and drive the people mad!
Makeup, a pretty face
will keep us morons in our place

How do you manage to sleep at night?
How do we make you drop your mask?
Is it only us who knows your intent?

We don't ask much,
just want the truth to come out easy,
but people have been way too busy,
distracted, numbed and so damn sleazy

What life has taught
is the utopia for which we fought,
a bright society based on thought,
is a possibility no more

Distract, deceive,
transform reality into make believe
Cheaters are winners
'cause the whole game's about tricking dreamers

How many cards you got under your sleeve?
You really think you can go on forever?
Eternal blend of evil and clever…

We don't ask much,
just want the truth to come out easy,
but people have been way too busy,
distracted, numbed and so damn sleazy

What life has taught
is the utopia for which we fought,
a bright society based on thought,
is a possibility no more

Why do they insist
that someone like me could save the day,
disregarding everything
about being realistic I have been saying?

There are a million reasons to give up,
so why not pick one and leave now,
before hope eats us alive?

Perhaps we do ask much:
as a megalomaniac team,
as powerless as we may seem,
our plan is to bring down the queen

We've got to make it clear,
since the final battle is near:
we'd rather die in a puddle of our blood
than slowly drowning in your mud
I haven't written so bitterly about mankind since Pessimistic view [link]. This is its less philosophical and more political sibling.

Almost nothing repeats, just two stanzas, which are naturally the (first) chorus.

To say such a thing, I assume you read the description. I repeated the dose of cynicism, indeed.

Hahaha, yeah! She's a smart little mo-fo! OMG, she might just be the queen being fought!

That was pretty awesome, man

I especially love that last part

It is a little depressing, though, but I'm pretty sure that's exactly what you were going for

Nice job *thumbs up*

Why, thank you, kind lady. 'Tis awesome to be awesome.

I was going for pessimistic (again), but agressively hopeful at the end. Depressing is a welcome side effect.
