so they're taking down the participation trophies
and many mayors are joining in
those who are protesting ain't wavin old glory
and they ain't tryin to make friends.

as they're devoid of facts for debate.
the alt.right presents: violence on the halfshell
and they're coming out swinging
but all the noise they're making is their death knell
yes the bells of change are ringing.

verse 6 BREAKDOWN-- MILITARY SNARE BEHIND
took down a statue read "civil war, second place"
and the day went the usual way
then they put up a sign that said "watch this space"
and went on a busker's holiday.
