Lyrics: 

There are lots of people getting money
who don’t want the money to stop.
So they go and buy themselves
politicians, judges, and cops.

They're mean right up till the end.
All that matters to them is that they win.
They kick some ass, then raise their glass.
They're mean right up till the end.

They don't care about other people's lives,
they just want more money and power.
They'll trample on your liberties.
They'll steal your lunch, then devour.

They're mean right up till the end.
All that matters to them is that they win.
They kick some ass, then raise their glass.
They're mean right up till the end.

They don't care if their money is dirty.
They don't mind if they cause a scene.

They're mean right up till the end.
All that matters to them is that they win.
They kick some ass, then raise their glass.
They're mean right up till the end.

The tension between laid-back vocals and the driving Rock arrangement, amplifies the harsh realities in the lyric. Well done

the lyric is polished and pointed. i like it that you dontsinge any of these fiends ut, as their names are legion and cme from everywhere on the political spectrum. the blend of guitar and banjo is done on an original way, not the usual moonshine jam to which such instruments are prone..

loved the guitar solo. Was that with a nylon acoustic or some sort of effect? Your lyrics and story made me equal parts sad and defeated, at least your politicians kick some ass before they do the corruption dance, mine just grift and graft all day long.

This is really good; almost conversational vocals with lovely guitar work. Good job.

I like this. The slow sad vocal against the undercurrent of anger and movement. (I don't have a solution. Except that a greed for power is worse than a greed for money.)
