Don't inflate your expectations
You might be surprised
When your heroes let you down
You find out that they lied
Kept the money for themselves
Your future plans are fried
So readjust your attitude
It's all a lot of Jive.

She is still a-wonderin'
And wishin' life was free
But it seems so obvious
Ain't how it's gonna be.

Prayin' to the politicians
And their slimy friends
Worship bullshit sacrifices
Justify their ends
Let's count out the profits
One for you and they get five
Masters of Skulduggery
It's all a lot of jive.

Voting for the fabricated
Fraudulent and fake
Promising the universe
With every buck they take
Buying you with plastic
They're paid to take a dive
Cayman Island bank accounts
It's all a lot of jive.
