funk D(xx023x)                   G(xx0033)             A:------------0-
Bastards stole the power from the victims of the us v. them years,

D                                   G
Wrecking all things virtuous and true

D                                     G
The undermining, social, democratic, downhill slide of truth, abysmal

D                                    G
lost, swam, off the precipice into trickle down runoff hope

C(335553)          D(557775)   C D
They hypnotized the summer, 1979,

C                  D              Dm7                 Dm7+4
marched into the capital, pretty duplicitous lookin' at evil, media-ready,

                     Dm7

Riff over and over
Ignoreland [Yea, yea, yea], Ignoreland [Yea, yea, yea]

{same as above}
The information nation took the clues from all the sound byte glut
1980, 84, 88, 92, too .... too
 
Hard to be what you can be jump down junk in your energy
Hard to walk in dignity with throw-up on your shoes
They can't supply the oil, 1979
Calculate the capital, one for the public, ask any ask TV tells a million 
lies that they twist down by the report anything that isn't handed 
on a presidential spoon
I'm just put down and frustrated by all this so fuck you man
Fuck 'em [Yea, yea, yea], Ignoreland [Yea, yea, yea], Ignoreland


G(355433)
If there wasn't, tell me would he have created them

Bm
Maybe it is true

Bb(113331)                    D(577455)
But I'm resentful all the same, someone's got to take the blame

{same as above}
I know that this is vitriol, no solution spleen-venting
But I feel better having screamed on you
They desecrate the winner, 1979
capital collateral, pretty duplicitous lookin' at evil, media-ready,
heartless, and they were super U.S. citizen super achiever
mega ultra power doesn't relax 
defense, defense, defense, defense, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ignoreland [Yea, yea, yea], Ignoreland [Yea, yea, yea]
Ignoreland [Yea, yea, yea], Ignoreland [Yea, yea, yea]
