sometimes it feels like being an orphan

sometimes it feels like being an orphan
when you get rescued from
a family of dysfunction
and foster care is scary
cuz' what if you get another abusive dad
with a name like Harry
with thick hair all over his face
to hide his moral disgrace
this is what it feels like to have no place
to call home

sometimes you feel like a politician
who's crying for reform but
no one will listen
the people love their status quo
despite all their bitchin'
Comfort and money are best--
to hell with all the rest!

their brains are one and the same
easier to manipulate
that way
