This was written back in 2004 - the focus was on GW Bush and the Iraq military action. Funny though, the lyrics and the song could easily apply to 3 of the final 4 candidates for each of the GOP and Democratic Parties.


Carry me out on the street
On your shoulders sweep me off my feet
Game my name as if I were The One, second coming of the almighty son
Take my name, and spread it around
tell everyone of who you've found
I promise that I'll spread the love
on the wings of the fabled white dove
look up high and you will see

A man who takes his spin too literally
A boy who craves anonymity
And here we are left to find
A legend in his own mind

Come inside and you will meet
All the shakers who own Wall Street
Money talks and we listen close
Greed is the language that is spoken most
What is good for everyone
The top 1% will share that now
A crippling debt, a high demand
And the money flows up just like sand
Look up high and you will find


Holding the Flag there way up high
Stained with blood and oil from far across the tides
We're all left to enjoy the blame
While our sons and daughters fight in his stained name
Look up high and you will see
