The audience applauds because the song is over.

Tonight my composition folder
says Hello to the paper shredder,
and gets torn to bits,
Just like it never did exist,
Free myself from my pen ,
Wont have to read again
how I thought when I was 16,
How I thought that I could be free.
Say goodnight to the rhetoric
that i've been screaming since I was a kid
but really have I changed that much
will I be singing the same old stuff. -----

How I hate this govt that
taxes U.S. to blow T.H.E.M. to bits,
How the 9 to 5 is a 5 by 10,
Pay your bills to forgive your sins,
The homeless sleeping out in the streets,
Right outside of empty buildings.
Smoke stacks a half a city high
polluted clouds rain a polluted cry!!...

.The objections get so easy to predict,
and I would like to think that this is decent/dissent
but it sounds like the gripe of the discontent----

Tonight my composition folder
says Hello to the paper shredder
because another is just 99 cents,
and I have grievances.
History is written by the victorious
my complaints are vacuous,
Nothing is going to change in any event
but really what do I expect.
can you really right the wrongs
wihout wronging the rights of everyone
or blowing the govt to bits?
ah shit now I am a domestic terrorist suspect. Because!
