Our government has turned a blind eye to the needs of the PEOPLE and instead, seem to occupied with the needs of Wall Street and the banking system.
Story Behind the Song
This song was written by Leli/Zimmerman to express their frustrations over a government that has become to big and ignores the problem of the people.
D.C., WHY CAN'T YOU SEE
The trusted leaders of our times
Offenders of so many crimes
They live in so much deceit
The worst kind you'll ever meet
Johnny works three jobs a day
Inflated taxes he has to pay
He pays more though he earns less
Rich people have all the breaks.
D.C. why an't you see
How you affect so many
D.c., why can't you see
How many you
ve hurt in our country
Heaven knows of the games you play
Engulfed in lies and total decay
One day the truth will be revealed
Exposing your lies and evil deeds.
To D.C., Johnny doesn't matter
Corporations are their masters
They count on every politician's greed
To turn on the people and make them bleed
Our leaders side with the big boys
In exchange for fancy toys
They let Johnny and all of us down
Sold their souls, none can be found.
We're tired of Washington's bureaucracy
Out of touch with reality
They are playing with so many lives
ignoring our struggles to survive
No place to go for the sick and old
Not enough money wer are told
The strongest country in the world
Leaves it's citizens out in the cold.
