Are you sick and tired of the way things are today?
Are you sick and tired of their ways?
Are you getting fed up with the writing on the wall?
Are you getting fed up with it all?

Well from Boston to Missouri, man
through Oklahoma too
I've been marching so I'm wearing out my shoes
and the people that I meet
as I'm wandering the street
Appear that they've nothing left to lose.

Well when Jesus Christ returns to Earth
He's gonna be a 7 foot Korean
He'll give us world Democracy
And organize neutrality
Then politicians, chief execs
will string him up
and put it on TV
(put him online, social scene)

Well, I'm proud
and I'm pretty
I been to college, too
read the words of Shakespeare through and through
But I've never met a merit-less
professor Lit. emeritus
who could live beyond the time that he was due.

Well when Jesus Christ returns to Earth
He's gonna be a 7 foot Korean
surprise the white supremacists
and rich TV evangelists
then all the cops will beat him senseless
cut his hair and throw him in the brig
(thinking they're so big)

Well I watched as the devil had us all prepare for war
like my father and his father did before
and that fast coming election,
pick which blow-hard is the best one
to let the private sector kill the poor.

Well when Jesus Christ returns to Earth
she's gonna be a 5 foot Puerto Rican
she'll speak some words of wisdom, man
but no one here will understand
'cause they'll expect to see a man
who hates the queers and Talks American.
Who talks American.
