Gonna build a wall

This was written a few years ago as you’ll see from the date but still fits today

All you do is give us news that’s fake

‘Cos that’s so much easier to make

Misinformation on everything

The lies you peddle have a familiar ring

Here you go talking alternative facts

To try to paper over the cracks

Do you think about the promises you made

Before you took on this masquerade?

Gonna build a wall, to keep you out

Gonna build a wall, when you’re about

Gonna build a wall, to hide behind

Gonna build a wall, ’til you change your mind

You say one thing but mean another

You call for war, insult my brother

Don’t know where your ship is sailing

Try to keep us out but your plan is failing

The pen you wave is all for show

Don’t mean a thing while the bars so low

You do it all with so much fuss

You do it for you and never for us

Gonna build a wall, to keep you out

Gonna build a wall, when you’re about

Gonna build a wall, to hide behind

Gonna build a wall, ’til you change your mind

Your sloppy lies and your slipshod ways

Blur my mind, leave me in a daze

You underestimate the job you have to do

Admit it now you don’t have a clue

Move away from the path you’re on

Time to sing a different song

Got to understand what the words mean

If you don’t know you have to come clean

Gonna build a wall, to keep you out

Gonna build a wall, when you’re about

Gonna build a wall, to hide behind                                               

Gonna build a wall, ’til you change your mind
