Good for You

Well, the Congresswoman tells her citizens,
"You know I feel the pain that you feel."
And then she climbs into her limousine
To go eat a thousand-dollar meal.


And the President tells the people,
"I want our nation to be free.
But if the price of freedom is tyranny,
Well, that's the way it's got to be!"


And when are you going to realize
That they're lying to your face?
They tell you what you want to hear
Just to keep you in your place.


Their motto is "Do what I say,
But ignore the things I do.
If it's good for me,
It can't be good for you."


And the preacher tells his congregation,
"The world is evil, it's full of sin."
But when the Lady in Red comes knocking,
He says, "Baby, won't you come on in?"


And the pushers on the TV
Will sell you pills for all your pains.
But just a single toke on your homegrown weed
Will land you in a ball and chain.


And when are you going to realize
That they're lying to your face?
They tell you what you want to hear
Just to keep you in your place.


Their motto is "Do what I say,
But ignore the things I do.
If it's good for me,
It can't be good for you."


And the religious true believers
Fight in their true believer wars
Where they shout across the battlefield,
"Our god is bigger than yours!"


And the rest of us grow weary
Of all the lies and hate and pain.
They tell us black is white and up is down
It'll make you want to go insane.


And when are you going to realize
That they're lying to your face?
They tell you what you want to hear
Just to keep you in your place.


Their motto is "Do what I say,
But ignore the things I do.
If it's good for me,
It can't be good for you.


Well, if it's good for me,
It can't be good for you.


Said if it's good for me,
Well it's against the law for you!"
