No Matter What

The tyrants bare their teeth
In presidential speech
Debate away our lives
And still a country cries

We vote them in
Defaults on a win
The mongers lick their lips
As we make up the whips

And yet a wind of change
Brought us together again

People fight odds everyday
No matter what the cost
Or what was lost
Self-love is the only way
No matter what was lost
Or what the cost

Waters closing in
The end will never begin
Philosophy unfolds
Measured in death tolls
