naysayers say no, ride the merry-go-round

this little old country
of naysayers and religious fanatics

these allergies of mine
making my eyes cry cry cry

this poorly paved road
leading to nowhere

this merry-go-round
making me sick sick sick

turning my stomach upside down
making me cry

naysayers, bankers and mobsters
religious fanatics and corrupt congressmen

this sad merry-go-round
with that same eerie tune

making me sick
making me cry
