Torches and Pitchforks
I'm currently working on hashing out this new song. Here are the lyrics:

The oligarchs and the bastards on Wall Street VERSE 1
Are taking humanity straight toward its defeat
If we are to survive we cannot let them win
So lets get off our asses, its time for us to begin
The hubris and the greed of all these oligarchs is boundless
I fear that legal actions on them will be found as groundless
I dont think it makes no sense to get these guys in front of courts
I think a much better plan is for us to get torches and pitchforks

Torches and pitchforks Thats what we need CHORUS
Torches and pitchforks For their insatiable greed
Torches and pitchforks To run them out of town
To shine the light upon them And bring the buggers down

Those of us who see it, must go and we must teach it VERSE 2
The people need our wisdom and its us who must go preach it
We gotta show the people that the world is not just black and white
Its really much more complex than a struggle between left and right
Sewing discord to distract the masses from the real crime
I hope there is a special place in hell for this inhuman slime
Instead of fighting them theyve got us fighting with each other
So theyll have their luxury while all of us will suffer


Theyre lurking in the shadows and theyve all the power in the world VERSE 3
If you ever get close to one the stench will make you want to hurl
Theyre fiendish and theyre evil and each one of them have sold their souls
And if we do not stop them theyll succeed in reaching all their goals
Theyre not even human really much more kin to vampires
Distracting us from seeing them by sparking all these fires
Theyre sucking all the good out of the world to feed their evil
And really could not give a flying crap about the fate of people


The unseen hand behind it all they work with great efficiency VERSE 4
Delighted to be in the shadows they relish anonymity
Left alone theres not a chance theyll ever be a bit contrite
So we do what they most fear and thrust them in the spotlight
They instigate the squabbling and the hatred between left and right
To keep us busy with each other and to keep them out of sight
I dont think it makes no sense to get these guys in front of courts
Me thinks a much better plan is to go and get torches and pitchforks
