The Party's Almost Over
Lyrics
I have a smile
A house and car
I work every day
You can't say I'm lazy

I went to school
I learned the rules
I can play the game
But I think I'm going crazy

Hey man
I finally see
The party's almost over
I can't take much more
Of greed and empty promises
Status quo
Has less to give
We ought to know
In how we live

Politicians sell you
An idea to keep
A fear to hold
A reason to weep

Some of us know better
It is truth we need
For a clear understanding
Of what we see and read

Hey man
Don't you know
The party's almost over
Last night
It was on the news
Another lie sugar coated
Brace yourself
Another elected
Another selected
To safe us all

All I really want to be
Is the very best in me
To see the very best in you
All I really want to know
Is how we make peace grow
And how we make it stay
Everyday

Hey man
Don't you know
The party's almost over
Brace yourself
Another elected
Another selected
To save us all

I have a smile
A house and car
I work every day
You can't say I'm lazy

I went to school
I learned the rules
I can play the game
But I think I'm going crazy
