08. Politicians

Nothing Is Sound
by Switchfoot



 

Everything is broken, everything is broken
Everything is breaking down, breaking down
Everything is bleeding, everything is bleeding
Everything is breaking down, breaking down

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without politicians
Watching for my sky to get torn apart
We are broken, we are bitter
Were the problem, were the politicians
Watching for our sky to get torn apart
Come on and break me
Come on and break me

Entropy and aching, where have we been aiming
Everything is fading out, fading out
We are the faded, splintered, and sedated
Everything is fading out, fading out

I pledge allegiance to a country without borders,
Without politicians
Politicians
Politicians

I am broken, I am bitter
Im the problem, Im the politician
Watching for my sky to get torn apart
Come on and break me
Come on and break me

Behind the Song:
We played this one downtown in Washington DC, surrounded on all sides by the government buildings. You see, I believe in democracy because I mistrust all humanity equally, (including myself). Power corrupts us all and we become political, (in the worst connotation of the word). We become simply pawns of our own insatiable hunger for control. Maybe control is a myth, like Santa Claus or the easter bunny: a nice fable that makes the children want to be good all year round. Well, seems to me there's a monster in all of us. I pledge allegiance to a nation without borders, without pride, without politicians like ourselves. Jon Foreman (Switchfoot)
