The Turning Point

Used to be a socialist and I used to carry a card.
I used to sell our paper to the students in the yard.
Wondered why no one bought it, then I walked into the street.
Realized no one bought it ëcause they needed something to eat.

Turned on my television to watch the candidates debate.
He said, he said arguments over articles of faith.
Wondered about the differences; subtle though they're there.
Looked at my bare cupboards and I realized no one cared.

The turning point, it's coming soon.
And in the fire that follows all will be consumed.
It's not like then cause this is now
And in the future they will wonder how
... it ever got this bad.

The turning point, it's coming soon.
And in the fire that follows all will be consumed.
It's not like then cause this is now
And in the future they will wonder how
... it came to be like this.

I lived in a police state.
They said it was for my protection.
Soldiers on the shadwos,
They question my steps' direction.
I asked him who he worked for and
He said the United States.
His voice was weak and his finger itched
And I prayed for our fate.
