We got rid of Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan too
We got rid of George Bush #1, now we got #2
Another puppet cowboy, another grinning logo
on the news, sound bights on the news
And we're still dealing with the symptom
When we should be dealing with the root


We got environmental legislation choking upthe books,
But read beetwen the lines, you'll find it's payed for by the crooks.
Fancy declarations and a whole lot of protocol
We're still dealing with the symptom
When we should be dealing with the root


We keep on re-enforcing borders and crazy notions too.
Like us and them and civilized, and whose terror works for you.
CNN is a war dance, you're riding your smart bomb
Between commercials, you're top gun.
And we,re still dealing with the symptom
When we should be dealing with the root


Kids are running wild, shooting up their schools
Broken homes, broken bones, a breakdown in the rules
But Schwarzeneger's bigger, and his trigger, his nightmares
and his gun, he kills for fun
And we're still dealing with the symptom
When we should be dealing with the root


You're busted if you're young or old
Busted if you're not white
Busted if you're homeless
Busted women in the night
Busted off to boot- camp
Then you get to graduate to mega-jail
more and more jails
And we're still dealing with the symptom
When we should be dealing with the root
