Red Helen – Ode To The Corrupt lyrics

Corruption seeps through the cracks.
Lies spat from lips of incompetent leaders,
Painting a rainbow nation red.

Ignorance the likes of which the world has never seen,
Did you think we were blind to your crimes so obscene?

You will pay for every lie, every single promise you've ever broken.
You’ll be held accountable for every word you've spoken.

Self-destruction…
Is this the end of us all?
Mass corruption…
Will our new found freedom fall?

Blinded by your lust for power and cravings of wealth,
You have deserted all of your people and live for yourself.

We're taught to be…
Taught to be ignorant, taught to be hopeless.
Surrounded by…
Surrounded by discarded dreams of the homeless.

Ignorance no longer disguised,
Disease curing showers won’t work in our eyes.
Uneducated rapists have no place in power.
You keep the masses blind but we see through your lies.

How long do you think that you can get away with this?
Get away with all you’ve done?
You steal from the rich and give to yourself,
While the poor are forced to wait until your belly is fat enough.
You are destroying the fabric of our society.
You’re nothing, nothing but a disease!

You will pay for every lie, every single promise you've ever broken.
You’ll be held accountable for every word you've spoken.
You will pay for every lie, every single promise you've ever broken.
You’ll be held accountable for every word…

You worship the man who fought for your freedom.
Yet actions speak louder than words.
You might as well spit on his grave.
There is power in numbers yet we suffer divided.
Hatred augmented by reflections of the past.
If we stand together and forgive the sins of our fathers,
We will have our freedom, our peace at last.

Blinded by your lust for power,
You have deserted all of your people and live for yourself.

We're taught to be…
Taught to be ignorant, taught to be hopeless.
Surrounded by…
Surrounded by discarded dreams of the homeless.
