Poor man's wages carry feet
Dead soldier today in the sweltering heat
Dynasty and power, two wars to their name
An election by decree
Ain't this new world a shame

Ain't this new world a shame

And I can't stop thinking
That it doesn't have to be this way
Doesn't have to be this way

Vindictive leaks what's it all about
Racist commentators leaving no doubt
Oil powers the economy
Tax breaks for the Humvee
Ain't this new world a shame

Ain't this new world a shame

And I can't stop thinking
That it doesn't have to be this way
Doesn't have to be this way
