Vote No Evil

I was born at night, but it wasn't last night
You better treat me right, because I'm no one's fool
I was born at night, but it wasn't last night
You better stand behind the one who stands up for you

You say, "I can change, I have changed, changing is all I do"
It seems you change with the tides, with the waves
Or who you're standing next to
How can I know which change or evolution to hold true?
Then you say real change will take time
Well you've taken too damn much of mine
I see your lies, and your prize at the end will come at a cost to me

I was born at night, but it wasn't last night
You better treat me right, because I'm no one's fool
I was born at night, but it wasn't last night
You better stand behind the one who stands up for you

They say you gotta pay, gotta pay, until your dying day
You just gotta pray, gotta pray, that if you bust your butt you'll be okay
You ran away with the whole damn pie, left us fighting for crumbs blaming the other guy
You have so much, I have so little. What is a girl to do?
Well I found a man, he's been by my side before I even knew
If you look around, look around
Then you will know he's been by yours too
When the times get tough, a man I can trust
To fight for me and fight for you

I was born at night, but it wasn't last night
You better treat me right, because I'm no one's fool
I was born at night, but it wasn't last night
You better stand behind the one who stands up for you

No population is given to you
The firewalls you take for granted are human too
We cannot afford your greed, be sacrifices for your need
The bigger you are, the harder you fall
You're falling hardest of all
You are big, you are rich and powerful, but you are few
The masses will no longer abide by you
You're hoping ignorance will be your saving grace
But I can tell by the look on your face, you know that's no longer true
Well the word is out, you've lost your clout
A revolution starting with an angry shout
Darlin', we're through.
Now we'll see if you're gonna take the whole damn party down with you
