House of Cards

House of Cards

They say the chips will fall as they may
But with a rigged deck who's got the say
Keep the bluffs up high and the people too
When you're throwing them out as they vote for you
It's not really the money that you're gambling with
But a different head on a different stick
Give up and fold, nod to compromise
A political party only barters in lives
When it's talk or reform or lies on the stage
The cost is the same, the penalty to pay
Cut a budget there, think big not small
Don't the numbers sound good when they mean nothing to all
the bigs on the hill and the ones with a mansion
As they dip in the coffers of your retirement pension
Everything stacked high as they teter on top
Keeping position by shilling for people unbought
Will it tumble down? This house of cards.
It's a cancer they've got, freedom marred
One side thinks they're terminally ill
Shutting down the nation to kill a bill
Other parasitic and attached on the teet
With a fascist greed powered by corporate elite
