My Mind Is for Sale



"I'm not trying to write an anti-Trump song," Johnson said. "I've heard people call it that. Maybe it's anti-some of his ideas. If anything, it's a pro-love song. I try to look at something and instead of only tearing the thing down, you want to replace it with something positive. So to me, walls that divide us aren't a good thing. So it's more about being proactive and how to include people."
Well, I heard the blinker's on
I heard we're changing lanes
I heard he likes to race
I heard there's six or seven words he likes to use
Are always in bad taste
And I heard that Monday's just a word we say
Every seven times around
And then we pin the tail on Tuesday
Watch those strings go up and down
The elephant in the room begins to dance
The cameras zoom into
His mouth begins to move
Those hateful words he uses

I don't care for your paranoid
"Us against them" walls
I don't care for your careless
"Me first, gimme gimme" appetite at all

And all the real estate in my mind is for sale
It's all been subdivided
Divided into reasons why
My two opposing thoughts at once are fine
The residue from the price tag
On the tip of my tongue
Words don't come, they go
How many likes I gotta get
Before I know the truth
And the truth is
Season three will be a great reason
To forget all about
Reality's a slippery slope
Watch the TV, scream and shout it

I don't care for your paranoid
"Us against them", fearful kind of walls
I don't care for your careless
"Me first, gimme gimme" appetite at all

Now I heard the blinker's on
I heard we're changing lanes
I heard we need more space
I heard there's six or seven words are in bad taste
It's absurd to believe that we might
Deserve anything
As if it's balanced in the end
And the good guys always win

I don't care for your paranoid
"Us against them" fearful kind of walls
I don't care for your careless
"Me first, gimme gimme" appetite
With the residue from the price tag
On those two opposing thoughts in my mind
Us against them fearful kind of walls
