I wrote a letter to my senator
Came back address unknown
Put a call in to the president
He wouldnt come to the phone
Now how in the hell can a person
Feel safe and secure at home
When all the decisions are being made
By big boys getting stoned

Now Ive been listening and watching
Looks like somethings caught in the gears
I cant seem to find a groove
Theres something going on around here
Yeah

So took a train to the white house
Wrote this song on the way
I knocked at the oval office
I sure of what I had to say
Well they looked at me kind of funny
Asked me what group I was with
I said I come on my own to represent
The group that dont take no shit

Now Ive been listening and watching
Looks like somethings caught in the gears
I cant seem to find a groove
Theres something going on around here
Yeah

Whats wrong in the company
Words been going down
Hes jepardizing the future
So he can get what he wants right now
Said level the mountains for gold
Fill up the sea with iron
What the hell jesus is coming
And the waiting is making me tired

Now Ive been listening and watching
It looks like somethings caught in the gears
I cant seem to find a groove
Theres something going on around here

Hey mr. nunn sir
Please tell me this
Why do you boys engage
In pornographic bliss
Up and down to boulevards
Of military towns
T & a and cheap hotels
For them to throw down
Its a release they say
Its the american way
Its not a soldiers preference
That makes him wrong or right
Its how he lives and how he acts
That makes him serve his country right

Now Ive been listening and watching
It looks like somethings caught in the gears
I cant seem to find a groove
Theres something going on around here
Yeah
